Jared Goff:

Goff starred at California on a team that never really had a chance to make any noise in the BCS, but his big arm was still incredibly exciting to watch. The California native has the arm strength to step under center almost immediately in the NFL, but some questions still linger about his abilities to win at the next level. His mental strength during games has been questioned, and he never led a team in college that was expected to win. In the NFL, he’ll be expected to win, and it’ll be interesting to see how his game translates to the pros when being .500 isn’t acceptable. (SLIDESHOW: These Gorgeous Patriots Love The American Flag)

Carson Wentz:

Wentz played in the FCS at North Dakota State where he absolutely shredded the competition. At face value, some would question if he can compete in the NFL after not facing much competition in college, but the fact is that Wentz would have started on every FBS team except maybe two or three. Wentz is a proven winner after winning multiple national championships. His arm strength isn’t as good as Goff’s, but he has much more mobility in the pocket. The former Bison star loves the old-school mentality of football, and his toughness has been well documented. His maturity and football IQ is more than any team could ever hope for. Drafting Wentz is drafting a winner. (SLIDESHOW: These Models Come From Great Stock)
