Colin Cowherd: There's a High Probability Zach Wilson Becomes a Draft Bust


Colin Cowherd: “At least one of these quarterbacks is going to bust. You don’t like to call it because the kid could be watching this show, or see it on YouTube. I don’t like to call it but we all know out of the five taken, the precedent is that there has never been even 4 for 4. It’s never happened ever. One of them is going to be a star -- you know I think it’s Trevor Lawrence -- one or two will have more success because of where they land, one is just a bust, and one is good but lands somewhere and he can’t overcome it. Zach Wilson, to me, is the BUST for so many reasons that seem obvious. Number one, Robert Saleh is a rookie head coach in a division with three established and excellent head coaches. Even if Robert Saleh succeeds, for the first three years of Zach Wilson’s career Saleh is not going to be better than Sean McDermott and Bill Belichick, and I doubt he’s better than Brian Flores who won ten games with Ryan Fitzpatrick and Tua. So he’s got the fourth-best head coach. I can argue it’s the worst ownership situation. It’s easily the worst offensive line. The quotes from this Athletic article [from an anonymous QB coach], everybody says the same thing. ‘Big concerns’, ‘huge risk’, ‘you don’t see him in a tight pocket at BYU, our league is a tight pocket league.’ He’s not the biggest guy and he’s slender looking with a bad O-line in a great defensive division. When he’s good, he’s good, but when he’s bad, he’s REALLY bad… When you read all this stuff about him he sounds like a smaller Sam Darnold. HUGE mistakes and love his athletic ability."
