Anthony Richardson Receiving Massive Praise From Offensive Line

Wednesday, July 10, 6:47 PM

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Anthony Richardson has received massive praise from his four-time All-Pro guard, Quenton Nelson. According to Kevin Patra of NFL.com, the Notre Dame product described his quarterback as an "absolute freak." "He can launch the ball and be accurate with it, too. The plays that he can make, some of the ones you've seen, the flashes of it. It's like, oh my goodness, this guy is special," Nelson added. The 22-year-old quarterback showed those flashes in the limited four-game stint he had in his rookie season before suffering a season-ending shoulder injury. This is great praise from a proven veteran who has played with other highly regarded prospects such as Andrew Luck and Carson Wentz. Richardson threw for 577 yards with three passing scores and added 136 yards on the ground with four rushing scores. The former number three overall selection in the 2023 NFL Draft will be one of the first quarterbacks taken off the board in most leagues this summer, as he possesses elite passing and rushing upside.

J.J. McCarthy Receiving High Praise From Teammates

Wednesday, July 3, 6:55 PM

Minnesota Vikings quarterback J.J. McCarthy was recently praised by fellow teammate Blake Cashman. Cashman, a linebacker, recently joined Minnesota this offseason and has been around several young quarterbacks. He began his career in the Big Apple with Zach Wilson and played with former second-overall pick C.J. Stroud last season. The 28-year-old defender said on the Jim Rome Show that McCarthy "Is 21 years old, but a great young man. He's a leader and he's eager to learn." This is great to see McCarthy's leadership translate quite well and quickly to the NFL as he led the Michigan Wolverines to two consecutive playoff appearances, including a national championship this past season. Cashman further expressed how well the young quarterback has thrown the ball in minicamps. Even though the 21-year-old is reportedly not starting in Week 1, according to Alec Lewis of the Athletic, it is great to see his veteran teammates express their excitement and support for him. McCarthy was a popular first-round selection in rookie drafts this past spring and remains a coveted asset in dynasty leagues.
