One of the clearest differences between NFL fans and football fans is during the Draft hype. Each year, experts praise a dumb quarterback whose archetype fits their formula for franchise savior, and NFL fans soak up this assessment so often and blindly that they genuinely believe Drake Maye is a better candidate than Caleb Williams.
The quarterback from North Carolina has no Heisman, never won 10 games, and only has one win against a top-25 team. The questionable win came against this year’s 6-7 Miami team before being forgotten every year. While Maye only served as the Tar Heels‘ starter for two years, he couldn’t beat a run-down Clemson program or an underperforming Georgia Tech school.
