Colorado quarterback Shedeur Sanders determined to maintain taking part in for his father Deion as an alternative of enter the 2024 NFL draft, but when he had turned professional, he thinks he’d be the finest quarterback in this yr’s class.
“I’m biased, but I don’t see a quarterback that’s better than me,” Sanders informed SI.com. “I don’t see a quarterback that went through as much adversity as me, that had four [offensive coordinators] in four years. “Coming from an HBCU, coming to a Power Five [program], having real pressure on me. A lot of people don’t understand, that’s a lot more adversity than you think just even being the son of Deion Sanders.”
Few would agree with Sanders that he’s a better professional prospect than USC’s Caleb Williams or North Carolina’s Drake Maye, however Sanders believes he’s achieved extra along with his alternatives than the different quarterbacks have with theirs.
“You put any of those guys in [my] situation, they’re not doing that. I respect their game, I respect what they’re doing because to be able to be a first-round draft pick, to be able to have success on the field, it takes a lot of hard work and determination and everything. But the most pressure and the safest bet is me.”
Sanders could have a likelihood this season to state his case that he deserves to be the first choose in the 2025 NFL draft.
