Where will Oregon football quarterback Justin Herbert be selected in the upcoming 2020 NFL Draft?
Some mock drafts have Herbert going to either the Miami Dolphins at No. 5 or the Los Angeles Chargers at No. 6. Some have the New England Patriots taking him at No. 23 as the heir to the Tom Brady throne. In two weeks, we will have that answer.
Wherever Herbert ends up, one thing is for sure: Mario Cristobal believes his success at the next level is undeniable.
Cristobal joined host Jordan Kent on the latest Talkin’ Ducks Podcast:
He has it all. There is nothing that he does not have. This guys is a student of the game that plays and works with tremendous passion. A relentless competitor. The intangibles are all there: wants to win; wants to win for his teammates; is not really concerned with personal glories; statistical data, none of that. He just wants to win and he knows to win he has to be a great leader aside from being a great player. — Mario Cristobal
Physically, there’s not a throw that he can’t make. Not only that he can’t make, but that he can do better than everybody else. He’s done some things on the field that I would look over and you know when you have a whistle half way hanging out of your mouth going ‘What? Did that just happen?’ — Mario Cristobal
Herbert’s four-year run at Oregon is nothing short of incredible. From a 4-8 record his freshman year to a Pac-12 Championship and Rose Bowl victory in his last, his legacy of the hometown hero from Eugene will always be remembered.
After his collegiate career ended in green and yellow, Herbert went out and won the MVP of the Reese’s Senior Bowl and once again turned heads at the NFL Combine.
Here is how Herbert measured up at the Combine: 6-foot-6; 236 pounds; 32 7/8 inch wingspan; 10 inch hands; 4.68 40-yard dash; 35.5 inch vertical; 123 inch broad jump; 7.06 second 3-cone drill; and a 4.46 20-yard shuttle run.
Oh, and he also showed off his tremendous cannon for an arm at Oregon’s Pro Day:
