The latest NFL draft was highlighted by a handful of highly-touted quarterbacks. LSU’s Joe Burrow, Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa, and Oregon’s Justin Herbert were all drafted in the top six last April. The teams that drafted them will certainly give them an early opportunity to shine, but not everyone is in favor of this. Just ask Warren Moon.
As NBC Sports reported, he’s not fully on-board with young QBs starting off the bat.
“I never think any rookie quarterback is ready to start right away, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t gonna be put on the field right away especially for a top-10 pick,” Moon said about the NFL rookie class, via Tyler Dragon of the Cincinnati Enquirer.
