This 2013 article compares the stat spiderwebs of big-name QBs and some others who were young QBs at that time. It includes S Bradford, M Sanchez and many others.

You can see that Carson Wentz compares favorably with the successful QBs.

Above average Wonderlic plus at least average height seem to be the most important predictors of success for a QB. There is no better example of that than Tom Brady!

While we don't get the Wonderlic comparison for Wentz, I assume that an academic All-American would not be below average.

Sam Bradford on paper should be a solid NFL QB. I suppose there is no way to predict who will be injury prone, be drafted by a bad organization and be stuck on teams that had extraordinary turnover in offensive coaches. The guy deserves a chance to be with the same half-decent coaching staff for a couple of years! He's had some bad luck.

McNabb had a low Wonderlic if I remember correctly. I think he had a 14. Back then, they publicized those things.

Interesting, thx, so that puts McNabb along with Cam Newton and M Vick. They all had well above average athleticism but below average Wonderlic scores.

Am I reading something wrong at the mockdraftables site?

It lists the most comparable QBs for Wentz.......and that list is not pretty outside of Big Ben....

You're not reading it wrong. The problem is that he really doesn't have many comps. Even Roethlisberger is only really a size comp. Athletically, there aren't too many guys like him.

QB is probably the least useful position for that site because athleticism is only a fraction of the makeup for great QBs.

With that said, what you can see from that chart is that Wentz is a freak.
