Overview:

Wentz has the prototypical size to be a franchise quarterback, with good arm strength, very accurate, and while he did not have the level of competition that the other top quarterbacks had, he excelled, with 2 FCS National Championships, and being very productive, so I fully expect Wentz to be one of the first three quarterbacks taken come April 28.
