Duke backup point guard Greg Paulus is getting consideration as an NFL quarterback.
Before you laugh, consider his legitimately impressive track track record.
— Paulus was the top-ranked high school quarterback in the country as a senior in 2004 and was recruited by top programs.
— He can take a big hit without getting injured.
— He reminds you a lot of Peyton Manning. (In that they both have fetus faces.)
— Many of the top quarterbacks in the NFL are, like Paulus, quite easy to loathe.
So there you have it. He’s got many NFL attributes. If he can just get by the fact that he has likely been forever tainted by an athletic program that is the antithesis of toughness, that he is undersized for a quarterback on any level, and that he hasn’t played football in five years, I’m pretty sure Greg Paulus is our next NFL superstar quarterback.
(Hey, at least he never played for Duke’s football team. I doubt they’ve ever put anyone in the NFL. In fact, I don’t even think they’ve had anyone play Division I football.)
