The rising draft stock of Zach Mettenberger

NFL.com scout notes on mett (scroll down the page just a little)

Here's a few quotes, it's not a super long article or anything. Nice to hear outside praise.
quote:

Keep an eye on LSU's Zach Mettenberger's development under former NFL offensive guru Cam Cameron. When Les Miles hired Cameron as the Tigers' offensive coordinator, he significantly improved Mettenberger's chances of becoming a top pick in the 2014 draft.

quote:

Looking at Mettenberger's strong performance against TCU, I believe Cameron's system and tutelage has already made a difference in the senior's game.

quote:

Given Mettenberger's impressive physical dimensions, arm talent and improving game, he could climb steadily up draft boards as he becomes more comfortable in Cameron's system this fall.

Interesting to see where he'd fall in with the likes of McCarron, Murray, and Manziel (is he draft eligible?)

Fiutak of CFN made this prediction back on August 6th:

Mettenberger will be the highest-drafted quarterback of all the projected SEC starters.

That is bold prediction considering some of the NFL insider boards project him as a late rounder or even UFA.

Zach has more upside than those other guys. Murray is short and arm isn't all that impressive, but you could ahve said the same about drew brees coming out.

I think McCarron is a good prospect and akin to a Christian Ponder type but I don't see him being a top tier guy. Zach could be a top tier Rothlisburger type QB in the NFL if his work ethic sticks and he continues to grow under cam.

i don't think there's any doubt about Manziel leaving after this year. he's ready to make (more) money.

I don't think we want to compare him to Rothlisburger.

If he progresses like he should this year, he'll be the first QB taken in the SEC. People can talk all they want about NFL guys liking Manziel, but when the time comes, he'll be either made into a receiver, or buried on the depth chart at QB.

idk which GM would take a chance on him. It'd be like merging Tebow and Te'o and throwing him on a roster.

If he continues to improve, Mett will be the top drafted qb from the SEC.
