JaMarcus Russell: What The Experts Told Us About The Former LSU QB Leading Up To The NFL Draft

SI Photos has a great slideshow up with quotes from the major draftniks. Most were very high on Russell sighting his physical tools as some of the best they have ever seen.

My favorite quote was from ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr.
"JaMarcus Russell is going to immediately energize that fanbase, that football team -- on the practice field, in that locker room. Three years from now you could be looking at a guy that's certainly one of the elite top five quarterbacks in this league. ...You're talking about a 2-3 year period once he's under center. Look out because the skill level that he has is certainly John Elway-like."
Brady Quinn was also debated as the top QB in that draft. So far neither has done much of anything.

  1. This just proves what an inexact science this stuff is. From the 5 star HS athlete to NFL draft picks you just never who will turn out to be a great player.
