Nick Foles played 13 years in the NFL, Matt Cassel three, Brady two and Ben Roethlisberger once; no “worldly young quarterbacks” are known to have ever come out of college.
But three of them have all appeared at Georgia Tech’s major pro day: Nick Foles, Jared Goff and Andy Dalton. Dalton and Davis Webb – who is rumored to be set to become the first quarterback in NFL history to throw 30 NFL passes in one season – have the last laugh.
Both Dalton and Foles were high draft picks themselves this past April. Neither is an awful quarterback, although it would be nice to see them at the next level. But they’re all 21 or 22, so the expectations will be very high for them in the foreseeable future.
They also have to deal with two of the best athletes in the NFL working out alongside them. No question, Green and Murray are incredibly talented athletes, but running with those two, with their contrasting styles and long arms, would put their long-term NFL prospects on the line.
