California Bears quarterback Jared Goff announced that he intends to enter the 2016 NFL Draft. God will make his decision official at a 1 pm EST press conference.
Memphis Tigers quarterback Paxton Lynch is also expected to make his intentions known today, as well. Lynch will have a press conference this morning to make it official.
Both players are ranked as the two-best quarterbacks in the upcoming 2016 NFL Draft. Lynch was projected as the top quarterback selected while Goff would be second.
However, with Lynch’s performance in the bowl game, they may switch. Goff had a big game in his bowl game, while Lynch struggled.
The 6-foot-7 Lynch had a 66.8% completion percentage on the year. He also threw for 3,778 yards and 28 touchdowns. He had just four interceptions.
While Lynch is ready right now, there’s many NFL scouts, who believe that Goff is not ready yet. He may have to sit like the Green Bay Packers did with another former Bears signal caller in Aaron Rodgers, who sat for several seasons behind Brett Favre before being a great player now.
Goff threw for 4,714 passing yards and 43 touchdowns. He also had 13 interceptions.
Many NFL scouts do not like his mechanics. They also didn’t like Tim Tebow and Teddy Bridgewater, who both went in the first round to the Denver Broncos and the Minnesota Vikings, respectively.
ESPN’s Todd McShay had Lynch as the 2nd overall pick, while Goff was picked with the 5th pick.
