Justin Herbert’s decision to return to remain in school for his senior season means the 2020 quarterback class is even more loaded with talent, and some believe the Oregon star could be the best of the best.
While Herbert doesn’t get nearly as much attention as Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa, one NFL scout told Pete Thamel of Yahoo Sports that he would put Herbert ahead of Tagovailoa at the moment.
“If I was on the clock right now, I’d go with Herbert,” the scout said. “He’s taller and fits the prototype more. I really like his arm strength and ability to stay in the pocket. Tua has three or four first-round picks on offense with him, and Herbert has Dillon Mitchell. That’s pretty much it. Tua has a lot to work with. He’s got first- and second-rounders galore around him that makes his job easier.”
