It is a well-known fact that Greg McElroy majored in business marketing, is a very smart young man and would be a shoe-in working in the NFL, but as a player?
He would most likely be able to make more money as an NFL executive than if he was to actually play in the NFL, especially considering the deep talent in quarterbacks this year.
The question is, however, should some quarterbacks actually be ranked above him in draft prospects?
Greg McElroy didn't play football to pay for college. His father works for the Dallas Cowboys, and paying for school would have been no problem for his family. He played college ball because he loves the game, and he's good at it.
Would it be so far-fetched for Greg McElroy to do some time playing in the NFL before he's ready to move on to the greener pastures of air conditioning, a suit and a desk in the NFL?
I am not saying McElroy would or should be drafted above some of the following quarterbacks, but it is quite interesting to compare some numbers and success.
Let's look at some aspects of other top NFL draft-eligible quarterbacks this year and compare them to Greg McElroy.
