    ISU QB's favored 2-1 for NFL Career in Big 12

    This is taken from an article about how Big 12 QB's are NFL busts, but lost in all of that is the fact that TWO of the THREE starters in the NFL were the last two drafted IOWA STATE QB's, Sage and Seneca.

    Translation: You're a Big 12 QB with NFL starter aspirations? Go to ISU - a 2 to 1 favorite over the next closest competitor, Texas - and Vince Young. A one-time freak of Texas recruiting.

    Check out this stat:

    "In fact, out of the 32 original starting QBs for the league, there was one game started, and that was by Vince Young. The other 14-games were started by backups from Iowa State (Seneca Wallace and Sage Rosenfels)."

    Big 12 Quarterbacks = Big Time Busts? — Draft Zoo

    If I was recruiting for ISU, I'd post my post in the QB's film room! Because you know I'm right......Starting ISU QB with NFL attributes = NFL Career.

    2-1 eh. that means AA will make it in the NFL, or since we had 2 make it in a row before him maybe AA won't and Tiller will make it in the NFL. Either way we have an NFL caliber quarterback by those stats.

    I wonder if down the road Tom Herman is here running the spread offense and people will be calling all our QB's "system" guys while they put up the #'s

    Re: ISU QB's favored 2-1 for NFL Career in Big 12

    Maybe i'll make a wild prediction and say both could, both couldn't, and maybe only 1 will.
    It's pretty obvious that you never know what will happen with college quarterbacks when they go into the NFL.
    AA is a good pocket passer, and has decent mobility, but when it comes to the nfl, you never know. Scouts may not like his arm angle, may think he doesnt have a strong enough arm, or may just not think he can make it. it's all up in the air.
    and tiller???? noone's ever seen him play a college game.

    I'll bite. I think it has more to do with Dan running the NFL style offense with QB's under center - and there is a real risk that QB's will put up huge college stats under Herman's spread attack and be called system QB's by the pros in the future.

    This is exactly why I always find it funny when College Football Live is on and they always do a segment over Colt McCoy, Sam Bradford, and Chase Daniel before he graduated.

    Re: ISU QB's favored 2-1 for NFL Career in Big 12

    I heard a good radio piece about how the NFL is going to have to become more spread oriented, as the most talented QBs in college play in the spread, and NOT in traditional "Pro Style" offenses. Right now NFL teams won't touch a guy who played spread w/a 10 foot pole (normally) and the overall level of QB play is plummeting...

    The problem with the NFL running the spread is DBs and LBs are so much faster and can cover so much ground in the NFL. You dont run the Chizik CBs stay off the line 10 yards play in the NFL. Its bump and cover and have a good safety over the top.

    AA would be a good NFL style QB.
