3 reasons why the New Orleans Saints should draft Carter Stanley
Number Three: He Adjusts Well To Coaching
Carter Stanley started 21 games his first three years in college, completing a mere 58.7 percent of his passes for 2,371 passing yards and a touchdown to interception ratio of 13 touchdowns to 14 interceptions.
Following his Junior year, Les Miles was hired to take over as head coach at Kansas and he turned Carter Stanley into one of the most improved quarterbacks in the NCAA last year.
Following the hiring of Miles, Stanley only had one year left to prove his abilities and he took full advantage of it.
Stanley started all 12 games his senior year, completing nearly 61 percent of his passes for 2,664 yards passing.
Stanley also tossed 24 touchdowns to just eleven interceptions, showing drastic year-over-year improvements. Stanley also became the fifth-ever Jayhawks signal-caller to throw for over 5,000 career yards, notching just 35 over 5,000.
Stanley proved that he can succeed with the right coach helping him along the way. If the Saints drafted him, he would get the luxury of learning under future Hall of Famer Drew Brees and one of the best coaches in the entire NFL in Sean Payton.
The Saints need to draft a late-round quarterback this year, why not take a chance on Carter Stanley.
