Future Watch: Justin Herbert Pre-Draft Football Cards, Oregon –  Justin Herbert played his college ball at Oregon University. He grew up in nearby Eugene, Oregon and he’s had two brothers who also play NCAA football, with his brother Patrick being redshirted at Oregon University last season. They’re all at home now and all hoping that Justin gets selected early in the 2020 NFL Draft.

In the last four years, Herbert averaged between 148 and a 167 total quarterback rating. In a game against Arizona this year he threw four touchdowns against one pick for a 211 total quarterback rating. This guy is special, and you can just look at the numbers and see that.

  • 2016 – 286-428 – 66.8% 32 TD 6 INT
  • 2017 – 139-206 – 67.5% 15 TD 5 INT
  • 2018 – 240 -404 – 59.4% 29 TD 8 INT
  • 2019 – 286 – 428 – 66.8% 32 TD 6 INT

His racked up a variety of awards, including:

  • 2017 – First Team Pac-12 All-Academic All-Conference
  • 2019 – Pac-12 Champion.
  • 2020 – Rose Bowl Champion
  • 2020 – William V Campbell Trophy (awarded to the player with the best academics, community service, and on-field performance)

Collectors can find Herbert’s pre-draft rookie cards of this talented quarterback in Leaf Draft, Leaf Metal Draft and Panini Prizm Draft Picks Collegiate Football.

Here’s what he looked like on his pro day:

 

Herbert is 6-6, 230 pounds so there were a few expectations of what he might be able to do at the NFL Combine. He ran a respectable 4.68 in the 40-yard dash. His vertical was 35.5″ and he added a 123” broad jump. He’s a good athlete and he will hear his name in the first half of the first round for sure.

He has a nice advantage over some of the other quarterbacks in his draft. He did get to have his pro day when many others were canceled, and it was well attended.

Will he be the second quarterback off the board? It’s possible. The NFL draft will have some twists and turns but collectors should get in on Herbert regardless.
