Greg McElroy: Why Free Fall to Jets Makes Him Biggest Winner of QB Class
Greg McElroy wins out big in seventh round
It must have been a nightmare for Greg McElroy.
After all, it’s not every day that you come a few picks from not being drafted at all. It’s not every day that a national champion becomes Mr. Irrelevant.
But Greg McElroy waited…and waited…and waited, but then his prayers were answered in the form of the New York Jets.
While it’s not the way he’d want to start his NFL career, there’s a good chance that it’s the best place he could be.
While McElroy won’t start, it’s not impossible to think that in a year or two he might not have a shot at that starting job. To say Mark Sanchez is impressing anyone would be an overstatement. He’s been erratic and inconsistent. There’s a good chance that Sanchez’s play could open the door for McIlroy.
Additionally, where as Carolina, Minnesota and Cincinnati are all a work in progress, McElroy has the benefit of a ready-made Super Bowl contender. Rex Ryan could plug him in and he’d be ready with the pieces in place. That would eliminate a ton of the learning curve a young quarterback has.
This could all be very good for McElroy. The Seventh round has never looked so promising.
