QB Carson Wentz- North Datoka State
Wentz is one of the top quarterbacks in this class and has all the makings of a potential franchise signal caller, but he comes with a bit more risk than you would typically like. Wentz should be able to fit in any offense and can be elite if everything goes right. While he has the size and tools you want, and flashes big time upside, he’s still more projection than certainty at this point.
Unlike most quarterbacks who go in the top 10 of the draft, Wentz will almost certainly need a year to develop on the bench/limited role. Between his lack of experience and his level of competition, it could take longer for Wentz to reach his peak and there is a chance he may never get there. On the positive side though his Senior Bowl experience showed positive signs of Wentz facing stiffer competition.
Overall Wentz has probably the highest upside of any quarterback in this draft class, but teams will have to be extra patient with him. If he’s developed properly, Wentz should make some team extremely happy and he can develop into a top tier quarterback in a few years. The key question is will a team give Wentz the time necessary to develop at his own pace.
