California quarterback Jared Goff is easily on one of the hottest streaks in all of college football right now. Since November 2013, Goff has thrown 45 touchdowns and only nine interceptions, which is a streak that has put him in the elite class of quarterbacks for the NFL Draft next April.
His head coach, Sonny Dykes, believes that he has all the right attributes that a top prospect should have. According to College Football Talk, Dykes spoke with Sports Illustrated and made a case for Goff to be selected number one overall next year, all while taking a shot at the top pick in the 2015 Draft, Jameis Winston.
“He does some stuff I’ve never seen anybody do before,” Dykes told the site. “He gets the ball out so quick. He sees things. He’s got all the stuff. Physically, he’s still real skinny, and when [NFL scouts] get around him, they’re going to go, Am I really going to give this guy $100 million? Other then that, there’s not one negative thing you can say about the guy. He’s humble, he’s hard-working and loves football. There’s not one single skeleton in his closet. He’s all the stuff that you want. He’s never stolen crab legs, any kind of that stuff. You don’t have to worry about all that with him.”
I just think that people need to let that whole crab leg thing go. Winston has moved on from that and he is actually performing fairly well in his early NFL career.
God forbid that Goff makes a mistake and have it follow him nearly a year later.
