    The more I look into Jimmy the more I like what I see. Found this recently on ESPN:

    Here is why the FCS star has a great chance to succeed in the NFL:

    1. Non-FBS QBs drafted early have productive careers
    In the Common Draft Era, there have been 19 quarterbacks taken out of non-FBS schools in the first three rounds...

    • Average career length: 9.6 seasons
    • 7 have started the Super Bowl (4 of them won: Terry Bradshaw, Phil Simms, Doug Williams and Joe Flacco)
    • 13 started a playoff game (9 of them won at least 1)
    • 3 won the league MVP (Bradshaw, Ken Anderson, Steve McNair)
    • 9 have made the Pro Bowl at least once
    • 12 have made at least 75 regular season starts
    • 3 are still in the league: Flacco, Tarvaris Jackson and Josh McCown
