Get used to hearing the name Garrett Grayson.
While Florida State Seminoles signal-caller Jameis Winston and Oregon’s Marcus Mariota, the two most recent Heisman Trophy winners, are getting a lot of the hype leading up to the 2015 NFL Draft, it is Grayson who is beginning to generate some buzz that could have his stock on the rise.
Grayson, who played his college football at Colorado State, is believed by many to be the third best signal-caller in the draft.
However, one NFL executive told USA Today Sports that Grayson may end up being the best quarterback to emerge from this year’s draft class when it is all said and done.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if Grayson was better than all of them,” said the executive.
“I just think he’s got the intangibles. He’s got a good presence about himself in the pocket. He’s got the physical traits. His arm’s strong enough, and I think he’s got the right temperament.”
Currently, Grayson is looking like a Day 2 pick.
While Winston and Mariota will be fighting for the opportunity to go No. 1 overall to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Grayson could end up landing in a much better situation on a team that may not need him to contribute immediately from day one.
