or just a product of having a good OL?
I looked at those teams with a 2018 QB in play (along with some other top Bowl teams) and found the following regarding their starting OL:
Alabama - 1 RS-Senior, 1 - Senior, 1 - RS-Jr, 2-Sophs.
Georgia - 1 Senior, 2 - RS Jrs., 1 - Soph., 1 - Fresh.
Oklahoma - 1 RS Senior, 1 - RS Jr., 2 - Jrs., 1- RS-Soph.
UCLA - 2 - RS Seniors, 1 - RS Jr., 1 - RS Soph., 1 - RS Fresh.
USC - 1 - RS Senior, 2 - RS Jrs., 1 - Jr., 1 - Fresh.
Wyoming - 1 Senior, 1 - Jr., 1 - Soph, 2 - Fresh.
The most inexperienced OL was Josh Allen's @ Wyoming--yet he did quite well for himself--even with a POOR OL!
You'd expect the top three 2018 QB prospects to have the best OL, and they did indeed in comparison (UCLA, OK, USC). Georgia, Alabama have no 2018 QB being drafted to my knowledge.
Just for yuks, I looked at PSU to see what kind of OL Saquon Barkley's had to run behind, and to it looks like this:
PSU - 1 RS Senior, 1 RS Jr., 1 RS Soph., 1 - Soph., 1 - RS Fresh.
Yeah, I was VERY surprised to see this as many think he's just another RB. To me that speaks volumes about that RBs success was based on his efforts, not necessarily that of a very experienced OL.
IDK, I'd rather have Josh Allen if I wanted to select a QB--especially with the state of the Giants OL, but I'd still draft Barkley and roll the dice with Webb (for the time being).
