Everything about him is slow.

It's a legitimate question. Will he even get drafted in the first 4 rounds...I doubt it...once you watch the tape.

All of this...U stuff is about college and about a place kids want to go at a certain position to get into the league.
It does have nothing to do with - after the fact success, that's up to the particular QB...not the Uni.

5. LSU Tigers
Draft picks last 25 years: Seven (Josh Booty, Craig Nall, Rohan Davey, Matt Mauck, JaMarcus Russell, Matt Flynn, Zach Mettenberger)

Most unbreakable amateur sports record.
Most points in a single football game by one school:
Haven High School scoring 256 points in a single game - Haven (Haven, Kan.), vs. Sylvia (Sylvia, Kan.), Nov. 16, 1927.
That will never ever ever ever ever be broken. Nobody would allow it today....

What the top 2 schools provide in support from the school and media in a single-minded focus and academics is unprecedented in the sport.
