NFL Draft: 4 Potential High Picks That Could End Up As Busts

Derrius Guice

However, the ESPN college football analyst is leery of Allen compared to the other quarterbacks expected to be first-round picks in next week's NFL draft at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. I'm not taking anything away from Elliott's rare talents - he's obviously a great player - but Barkley has more wiggle and top-end speed than Elliott.

It nearly feels like NFL GMs are playing darts when picking a quarterback out.

The Giants will have two of the top quarterbacks in the upcoming draft at their complex for private visits this week, although the chances remain high that only one of them will be available when the team is on the clock at No. 2 next week.

And on Allen: "A big thrower, but is accuracy going to be an issue for him?" While I don't think he slips that far, I'm not on the side that thinks highly of Allen. The team has been linked to Darnold and Allen mostly of late. I know Sean (McDermott) gets it and (Derek) Boyko gets it and he's the PR guy.

Herbstreit said Darnold "may have the most upside" of any of the quarterbacks in the draft if you're looking five to six years into the future.

He does have to answer questions about maturity and is considered "under-sized", but that tag has not stopped Drew Brees or Russell Wilson. "My guess would be, worst-case scenario, he would be the fifth quarterback off the board, back end of the first". I've heard everyone there likes Penn State running back Saquon Barkley.

NFL Draft: 4 Potential High Picks That Could End Up As Busts

Hurst is a fifth-year senior All-American who is ranked as Draft Wire's No. 3 interior defensive lineman. But his arm strength, his ability to improvise, and coming out of an NFL-style offense in college at SC, I would put him at two.

Josh Rosen has the quick release that Darnold doesn't, and a bit of the Mayfield moxie.

"I agree with a lot of the analysts out there saying, when everything is clean - meaning no pressure, pocket's cleans, drops back - kid's going to make the decision where to go with the ball, nine-and-a-half or 10 times out of 10, he's going to make the right read and an accurate throw", Herbstreit said.

"Josh Allen, at 6'4" and 240 pounds, he's a beast behind the line of scrimmage. But he gets beat up, and in the National Football League, that can lead to a short career.

"I had a scout, who's closing in on retirement age, recently tell me he's never seen a back with all of the traits Barkley has", NFL Network's Kim Jones told Jets 360 at the Combine. He lost a lot of his better players after the 2016 season. It's rumored that the Denver Broncos want to draft him there.
