Sept 27, 2016 – Since 1991, there have been 6 instances where quarterbacks were drafted #1 and #2:
- 1993: #1 – Drew Bledsoe, New England Patriots & #2 – Rick Mirer, Seattle Seahawks
- 1998: #1 – Peyton Manning, Indianapolis Colts & #2 – Ryan Leaf, San Diego Chargers
- 1999: #1 – Tim Couch, Cleveland Browns & #2 – Donovan McNabb, Philadelphia Eagles
- 2012: #1 – Andrew Luck, Indianapolis Colts & #2 Robert Griffin III, Washington Redskins
- 2015: #1 – Jameis Winston, Tampa Bay Buccaneers & #2 – Marcus Mariota, Tennessee Titans
- 2016: #1 – Jared Goff, Los Angeles Rams & #2 – Carson Wentz, Philadelphia Eagles
The jury is still out on Marcus Mariota, but in all instances except one, the quarterback drafted #2 has been a bust. That exception was in 1999, when the Philadelphia Eagles drafted Donovan McNabb.
So far, it’s looking like the Eagles have succeeded again, with Carson Wentz leading the way to a 3-0 record and fans have made his jersey the #1 seller in the NFL.
If you’re a believer, grab your Carson Wentz gear now to show your support!
