Garrett Grayson Might Be The Second-Coming Of Aaron Rodgers!
By Super Scout Max Emfinger
If you Live in Louisiana or if you Live Somewhere Outside of Louisiana, but are still a “Who-Dat Nation” New Orleans Saints Fan, then you were aware of the Saints thinking about getting a Great, Young Quarterback to Groom behind Future Hall-of-Fame Quarterback Drew Brees, in a few years.
If the Green Bay Packers could do it with Aaron Rodgers, learning the Quarterback Ropes, from Hall-of-Fame Quarterback Brett Favre, then why can’t the Saints find a Young Super-Star in the 2015 Draft to Groom to Replace Brees in a few years. So who would be the Right Quarterback to Draft?
The Two Obvious Quarterbacks in the 2015 NFL Draft were going to be Jameis Winston of Florida State and Marcus Mariota of Oregon, but both of them would probably go in the First Two Draft Picks Overall and both of them are not going to be needed Grooming, because they would be ready to Start the Very First Game as a Rookie. After Evaluating all of the Quarterbacks in the 2015 NFL Draft, with my MEARS RATING, Below are my Super Six Quarterbacks.

OK, so now we are looking at the Super Six Quarterbacks in the 2015 NFL Draft and if you are the New Orleans Saints, you want to Draft the very best Player to be groomed for a few years behind Future Hall-of-Fame Quarterback Drew Brees. I have personally watched all Six of these Quarterbacks and have Selected all Six of them in the last couple years to one of my Weekly College Players of The Week Awards.
The First two Quarterbacks on the List are Heisman Trophy Award Winners and they are Ready to Start their First Game as a Rookie Quarterback, so those Two Quarterbacks are Eliminated from the List. That leaves Four Quarterbacks, including Two Quarterbacks that played in a Spread Offense Formation and Two Quarterbacks that played in a Pro-Set Formation Offense.
The Two Quarterbacks in The Spread Formation, including Bryce Petty of Baylor and Brett Hundley of UCLA were very talented Quarterbacks who had tremendous All-American Careers, and they were heavily considered by the New Orleans Saints and at one time, it appeared that they would Draft either Petty or Hundley, but there was still another plan.
Brees is 36-Years Old and he is entering his 15th NFL Season after finishing a disappointing 7-9 Record. The New Orleans Saints still have a lot of Great Players and they also made some Great Off-Season Trades when they decided that Super-Star Jimmy Graham and Super-Star Kenny Stills were both expendable on The Saints Offense, because they still believe that they can continue to produce a Tremendous High-Scoring Offense, as they always have with Drew Brees at Quarterback and with Head Coach Sean Payton.
In the Drew Brees #9 and Sean Payton Spread Offense Era, the Saints have always invested very heavily in Tremendous Backfield Speed and Great Athletic Skills in the Backfield. Recently, the Saints Re-Signed 2009 Heisman Trophy Award Winner and Top Running Back Mark Ingram to a four-year, $16 Million Contract before adding Another Super-Star Running Back C.J. Spiller.
The Saints wanted to continue its Great Tradition of having a Super Running Back/Receiver threat in their Offense. Spiller #28 is a Faster Clone from the same mold of former Saints Running Back/Receivers Reggie Bush and Darren Sproles.
Spiller, 27, was a Free Agent for the first time since being selected #1 and #9 Overall by the Buffalo Bills in The 2010 NFL Draft. Spiller is the Most Electrifying and Productive All-Purpose College Players in NCAA History at CLEMSON with 7,588-Career All-Purpose Yards. Spiller had 51 College Career Touchdowns and 21 of the 51 were from 50-Yards or Farther.
Spiller has World-Class Speed and is considered to be one of the fastest and most Athletic Running Backs in the NFL, Spiller is coming off a pair of disappointing, injury-hampered seasons, but now is with the Saints. Now back to Garrett Grayson!
Last season, Grayson had a Tremendous Season as he led his Colorado State Team to its First 10-GameWin Season since 2002 and in the process, he was Selected as The Mountain West Player MVP Award Winner as he Started all 13 Games. In those 13 Games, Grayson Completed 64.3% of his passes for 4,006-Yards and 32 Touchdowns. In his 2013 season, Grayson also broke the Single-Game Colorado State Passing Record when he passed for 455-Yards Against Boise State.
One of the main reasons that Coach Payton and The New Orleans Saints Drafted Garrett Grayson was because of his Incredible On-the-Field Presence and because he has so many other Great Intangibles, including Outstanding Arm-Strength, Deep-Pass Abilities, Leadership, and Overall Athletic Qualities.
Grayson Shocked a lot of people in the NFL when he came off of the NFL Draft Board as the #3 Quarterback, but by Adding Mark Ingram, C.J. Spiller, and Garrett Grayson, they picked-up three Super-Stars to go with Brees and I think that will help get them back into the NFL Playoffs.
