Ryan Nassib's sleeper status
He could be good early, but not for the reasons some think
Gruden's QB Camp: Ryan Nassib
For the Jon Gruden QB Camp series, we wanted Insiders to see a little more. So we dispatched ESPN.com NFC South blogger Pat Yasinskas to Tampa, Fla., to sit in with the coach and squeeze out a little more insight. This is the result.
I think Ryan Nassib might be the sleeper of this draft. That sounds easy to say because -- let's face it -- in a class in which we're sitting here debating whether a single quarterback is worth a first-round pick, if you say any guy can be a good NFL starter, you're basically calling him a sleeper. But for Nassib, the reasons are a little bit different, and I think they apply to this class in the same way they apply to a class like 2011, where you felt there were some can't-miss prospects at the top. That's because with Nassib, some things that you might consider flaws don't appear that way when you take a closer look.
