Future Watch: Trevor Siemian Football Rookie Cards, Broncos – Being named the opening day starting quarterback of the reigning NFL Super Bowl Champions is quite an honor. Doing so without having a single NFL career passing attempt is history in the making. That is exactly the position Trevor Siemian finds himself in having been named the starting quarterback for the Denver Broncos.
So who is Trevor Siemian? He played his college football at Northwestern and was a seventh round selection (250th overall) in the 2015 NFL Draft. He was the final of of seven quarterbacks selected in that year’s draft.
Siemian is a Danbury, Connecticut native, is 24 years old and stands 6’4″ at 220lbs. He was a three year starter for the Northwestern Wildcats. He is a pocket passer with just enough mobility to allude rushing lineman. His statistics were not exemplary but efficient.
His SBNation draft profile had this to say at the time:
“He showed an ability to check the ball down effectively, especially if wideouts were breaking towards the middle of the field. Siemian usually delivers an accurate pass on short throws, like slants, ins, hitches and screens. Although not necessarily fast, he is somewhat mobile and can move some in the pocket and at times get outside the pocket. He shows some zip on passes over the middle beyond ten yards. Finally, he has a lot of experience in the shotgun, and he has run an up-tempo offense in college, something that is becoming popular in the pros.”
