Did Eli Manning get snubbed?
ESPN NFL Draft expert Mel Kiper Jr. has released a list of his top-15 quarterback draft prospects of all time.
In case you’re wondering, former New York Giants’ quarterback Eli Manning didn’t make the list.
Number one on Kiper’s list is former Denver Broncos’ quarterback John Elway, who played his college ball at Stanford. Here’s the entire list:
- John Elway
- Andrew Luck
- Peyton Manning
- Trevor Lawrence
- Jim Kelly
- Andre Ware
- Drew Bledsoe
- Ryan Leaf
- Troy Aikman
- Josh Allen.
Then Kiper named another five guys in no particular order.
- Vinny Testaverde
- Boomer Esiason
- Steve Young
- Bernie Kosar
- Tim Couch
Of course this is only going off what these guys did in college because three of them were busts in Leaf, Ware and Couch. And not even the rest of them were all Hall of Famers.
Now if you compare Eli to most of these guys, he had a much better NFL career then them.
Of course this list doesn’t even include Tom Brady, who it seems like the entire world missed on when he wasn’t taken until the sixth round. Also greats like Dan Marino and Aaron Rodgers aren’t on the list as well.
