2016 NFL Draft Watch: Top Carson Wentz Football Cards – When Carson Wentz was selected with the number two overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft by the Philadelphia Eagles, it was a BIG day for Division 1AA athletes around the country. Many experts and scouts believe that while Jared Goff may be the more “NFL ready” player, that it will be Wentz that is the better player down the road.
NFL analyst Mike Mayock attested to this by saying, “This is a special moment for a Division-1AA (FCS) player. There is precedent in Joe Flacco, who came out of Delaware. Wentz is the No. 1 player on my board, so while I understand and believe that Goff is more ready to play today, Wentz will be a better player five years from now.”
Wentz is a five-time NCAA FCS National Champion (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015). He is the highest drafted quarterback from an FCS school, and the highest drafted player ever from North Dakota State. In 2014, as a junior, he was named the team’s starting quarterback.
Wentz put up more than credible numbers during his tenure at the helm of the North Dakota State Bison.
While it is still very early in the collecting season, the handful of 2016 football products on the market have already returned some impressive sales of Wentz’s cards on the secondary market.
