3. Carson Wentz, North Dakota State (SR)
6-5, 230 pounds
Carson Wentz doesn’t play against elite level competition, but neither did Joe Flacco, who was a first round pick of the Ravens out of DIII Delaware before winning a Super Bowl.
Wentz has a ton of skills, and the ability to drop the football into any place he wants or needs to.
He’s got a quick release, good athletic ability for his size and length, and can push the ball to the sideline and out to the perimeter with ease.
There is so much to like about this guy, and you can see it for yourself in that video there, but I think the Broncos could get him at the bargain rate of a 2nd round pick perhaps. If not, I would have no problems using a pick in the 1st round to get him.
