A dumb list of “NFL youngsters” with Hall of Fame potential

Wentz over Mariota?

NFL: Tennessee Titans-Minicamp Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

Adam Schein put out a list of “NFL youngsters” that have Hall of Fame potential. There are 9 guys on the list including 2 quarterbacks- Jameis Winston and Carson Wentz. Now see you why the title calls the list stupid. Schein did list Marcus Mariota in his “toughest omissions” section.

The debate between Mariota and Winston is going to be ongoing until one of them leads their team to a Super Bowl. I don’t think anyone in their right mind would take Winston over Mariota at this point, but there are a lot of people out there not in their right mind....but to include Wentz on the list and leave Marcus off is just ridiculous.

I have no bones with the rest of the list. The last 2 guys on the list, Amari Cooper and Landon Collins, are obviously studs from Alabama. Remember that time the Titans needed a safety and could have taken Collins but instead traded down to take Dorial Green-Beckham? I would kill Ruston Webster for that, but I loved it at the time...
