With a great discussion on the positive performance of Daniel Jones going on in another threat, I wanted to see if anyone can identify any under the radar backup QBs in the NFL that may be potential franchise QBs of the future? Something gold standards would be Tony Romo, Kurt Warner, Tom Brady, etc., who were backups but showed something special either coming out of college, during training camp/preseason, or on spot duty during previous seasons? And when given the chance to show it, they became franchise QBs.
Of course, conversely, who are potential fool's gold future franchise QBs in the mold of Matt Flynn, who may have looked like a potential franchise QB but failed to become one when given the chance.
I know that this is extremely subjective and speculative, but many posters on BBI have followed QBs from colleges as well as paid attention to some during offseasons/preseasons to possibly be excited about some young QB, whether rookie or young veteran.
I'll throw out Taysom Hill as a guy people appear to be excited about due to his versatility (which appears to be the flavor today), but I'm not sure that he's a franchise QB since I haven't seen him throw a lot.
