He stands 6 feet, 6 inches tall and weighs a sturdy 237 pounds. He has the ability to make any throw. He may well one day be a great NFL quarterback, which has been the expectation around him for years now, but Oregon needs Justin Herbert to be a great college quarterback first.
Herbert entered last season as a dark-horse Heisman Trophy candidate. By season’s end, he was not even voted honorable mention All-Pac-12.
Yet, he was still projected as a first-round NFL draft pick because of his natural gifts, and it would have made a ton of sense for Herbert to go ahead and cash in.
But he decided to stay at Oregon, which shows that Herbert is not satisfied with his college career and wants to win big in his hometown of Eugene more than he wants the quick payday.Advertisement
