NFL analyst, Ron Jaworski has had some controversial views on the quarterbacks in the 2014 NFL draft. Earlier this year, he stated that he thought Johnny Manziel was a third round pick and now his latest QB rankings have caused some more eyebrow-raising.
Jaworski rates UCF's Blake Bortles as the number one quarterback prospect in the draft with LSU's Zach Mettenberger at number two.
Bortles' status is not all that strange after Teddy Bridgewater's sub-par pro day and a number of teams unconvinced on Johnny Manziel, Bortles has risen up draft boards and could well be selected first overall in May.
Mettenberger's mention has come as a surprise however, with the LSU passer previously only considered a mid-round after thought.
However, Jaworski rates Mettenberger as an NFL ready player who even draws similarities to former Super Bowl winner, Joe Flacco.
Jaworski said: ”When you watch him on tape, this guy has an NFL skill set,” the analyst also said he was "very similar" to Flacco
Mettenberger is 6'5" and 230lb so certainly possesses a similar size to Flacco is an inch taller. The Ravens passer has drawn praise during the start of his NFL career for a strong arm and the ability to stand strong in the pocket and face pressure.
Whether NFL general managers will share the same beliefs as Jaworski remains to be seen but if Mettenberger can produce a Super Bowl win like Flacco, then he will certainly be a valuable selection.
