Which Young Quarterback Will Be the Next NFL Superstar? 1

Posted on September 27, 2019 by Dean Hybl

In today’s NFL, the most valuable asset for any NFL team is their starting quarterback.  Finding a “franchise” quarterback is often the difference between a successful team and a team floundering with mediocrity.

Over the last three years, 11 quarterbacks have been selected in the first round of the NFL Draft. One interesting bet for New Online Casinos would be which of these young quarterbacks will be the next NFL Superstars and which will eventually be considered as draft misses.

Certainly, the young gun who has made the biggest early impression is Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs.

After playing in just one game as a rookie, Mahomes became the starter in 2018 and responded with an MVP season. His 50 touchdown passes were the most ever for a second year player and tied for the second most in a season all-time. He nearly led the Chiefs to the Super Bowl as they lost in overtime to the New England Patriots in the AFC title game.

He is on pace for another big season with 10 touchdown passes in his first three games of 2019 as the Chiefs are undefeated and looking like a Super Bowl contender.

Their victory last week was over another team with a dynamic young quarterback.

Lamar Jackson was named the Heisman Trophy winner in 2016 and during his rookie season with the Baltimore Ravens in 2018 he dethroned a Super Bowl winning quarterback in Joe Flacco.

      The path to tennis greatness was a unique one for Evonne Goolagong Cawley. The daughter of an itinerant sheep shearer, Goolagong Cawley was the third of eight children in an Australian Aboriginal family. Though Aboriginal people faced significant discrimination during that era, Goolagong Cawley was able to play tennis from a young age due to the generosity and support of numerous people within Australia.

      She emerged on the international tennis stage as a 19-year-old in 1971 as she reached the finals of the Australian Open and then won the French Open and Wimbledon titles. She remains the only person to win the French Open women’s title in her first time playing in the tournament.

      In 1972, she reached the finals of the Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon, but did not claim any of the titles. She also played the U.S. Open for the first time in 1972 and reached the third round.
