Obviously we cannot put any stock in something like this, but over at HoopsAnalyst Ed Weiland saw an interesting link between the 2009 NBA Draft point guard class and the 1983 NFL Draft quarterback class. That group of quarterbacks included some well known names such as Jim Kelly, Dan Marino and one John Elway.
The potential parallel between Elway forcing his way out of Baltimore and Rubio possibly forcing his way out of Minnesota is intriguing and even though I imagine most readers of this blog double as Elway fans I think you have to be encouraged with which NFL prospect from the 1983 draft Ty Lawson lines up with.
He may have never won a title in the NFL, but I think it would be pretty cool to have the Dan Marino of point guards in Denver for the next ten to 12 seasons. Like I said, draw your conclusions from Weiland’s post at your own risk, but at the very least it is an interesting read.
