I really like my NC State's QB Finley, but I don't see him being more than a backup at the NFL level. Hopefully I am wrong. Tone and I had this same argument about Jacoby Brissett. I've been fortunate to see some good QB talent here at NC State. Phillip Rivers and Russell Wilson clearly had that "IT" factor here at NC State. Glennon and Brissett were good college QBs, but I didn't see anything really special about them as far as NFL talent. It was a little hard to evaluate Brisset because our OL was not very good while he was QB here. They were both good college QBs. I will say that Finley has been able to carry this offense this year which is something that Brissett and Glennon didn't do. He has taken a step forward this year, and he prevented a total 4th quarter collapse last week with some gutsy play against a BC team which has owned us over the past several years.
Its tough to gauge. If the juniors decide to stay in school there really isn't a guy who is throwing more accurately than Finley. Is this like the 2013 draft all over again where you had EJ Manuel, Geno Smith, Matt Barkley, Ryan Nassib, Mike Glennon and Landry Jones? Lots of misplaced hype and all have proven not to be starters.
