Green Bay Packers wide receiver Trevor Davis was reportedly arrested at the Los Angeles International Airport Sunday after jokingly telling an attendant at the Hawaiian Airlines ticket counter he had smuggled in a bomb while being asked security questions, according to Stella Chan of CNN.
Chan spoke with LAX Police public information officer Robert Pedregon, who stated that Davis “was at the Hawaiian Airlines counter with a female companion Sunday morning answering a series of typical questions asked of all travelers.”
Fortunately, to get a better sense of what the league actually thought about quarterbacks, there’s Bob McGinn. The legendary Packers beat writer took an annual poll of anonymous evaluators before the draft during his time with the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, and asked them to rank the quarterbacks from each year’s draft class. McGinn then scored each of those ballots with five points for the top-ranked quarterback, four for the second-ranked quarterback and onward.
I was able to find polls going back to the 2005 draft, which was a fateful session for the team McGinn covered. Let’s run through the top five from those polls to see just how difficult it is to project quarterbacks.
This comes after Ralph Vacchiano of SNY cited a team source who said it was “highly unlikely” the Giants would move the wide receiver.
The mere idea of trading Beckham would have turned plenty of heads not long ago. However, the talented receiver played just four games last season because of an ankle injury. What’s more, Vacchiano suggested the Giants are “near their breaking point with Beckham and these nuisance controversies” after he was shown in a video with a suspicious cigarette.
Team president John Mara even said “I wouldn’t say anyone’s untouchable” when asked whether the team could move Beckham this offseason at the league’s owners’ meetings, per Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News.
