Josh McGregor is probably the best quarterback available in the draft that you have never heard of.
While at Jacksonville University, McGregor threw for 3,044 yards, 29 touchdowns and 17 interceptions his senior year for a quarterback rating of 150.1 (that's his college rating, to put it in NFL terms his QB rating was 96.5).
However, prior to the game, not too many fans knew about the former Jacksonville Dolphin.
Until now: let me give you a heads up on the future Green Bay Packers fifth-round draft pick that five years from now will be sure to be overpaid by a quarterback-needy team after a couple of great games that people will ask "hey, where did they find that kid?"
McGregor was the north's MVP of the Battle of Florida as he went 11-of-12 and threw for 123 yards, along with one rushing attempt that went for 27 yards. He was key in every north scoring drive in the first quarter (the only quarter he played in) as the North marched to a 27-0 lead.
At 6'2", 205 lbs, McGregor screams quarterback, he even has the perfect name for a quarterback. Everything about this kid making it into the NFL just makes sense.
He will be drafted likely by a smart team (hence the Green Bay Packers reference), he will be developed by said team. In five years, Josh McGregor will be a starter in the NFL.
And we'll just be asking "hey, where did they find that kid?"
Speaking of Jacksonville University, they were well represented by having five of their players in the game, as well as their head coach Kerwin Bell, who ran the practices for the north team and served as their offensive coordinator. Bell even got the customary Gatorade shower at the end of the game.
Look out for him in the coming years as a Division I FBS school is sure to snap up the former Florida Gators quarterback as their head coach.
