Brady White, Sam Darnold, Brian Lewerke, and Travis Waller are the ones who received invites to the Elite 11.
Don't care, we've had plenty of mediocre elite 11 alumni.
And there were quite a few Elite 11 QBs just drafted...
None we had. Anyone get drafted that wasn't?
How many have we had, 2? When did Dillon have surgery on his labrum? I'm gonna go all math over your ass when I get home.
Good! When we get one that does something, I'll care. Until then it feels like an accolade that predicts nothing.
From 1999-2008, there were 118 Elite 11 QBs.
-34.75% (41 of 118) were drafted compared to 2.99% (99 of 3310) of all other QBs in the Rivals database since the 2002 class
-An average of 11.8 QBs were named to the Elite 11 list
-An average of 4.1 QBs were drafted each Elite 11 year
-On average, from 2004-2014, 12.8 QBs were taken in the NFL Draft
So while there may be more non-Elite 11 QBs drafted every year, the small sample size of Elite 11 QBs means that you can infer that a QB being named to the Elite 11 list are much more likely to be drafted which also means that you can infer that a team who lands a Elite 11 QB is more likely to have success than a team who does not.
Point: It is a good thing to land a Elite 11 QB than to not, regardless of our past with them, which happens to coincide with the time we've been awful and have had two awful staffs that didn't develop players
You get rep. Someone with actual rep please hit him? Now gimme a good goddam qb.
Meh. Elite 11 highly correlates with highly rated QBs. It is mostly a superfluous honor.
This is true, and that also means that it is highly correlated with the QBs that USC gets
USC commits will naturally get the benefit of the doubt for sure.
I think we all know the QB recruiting needs to get a lot better. Hopefully it happens soon.
Who would be your top choices for QB this year?
Separate names with a comma.
