Shedeur Sanders always has plenty of confidence.
Shedeur Sanders has made the decision not to enter the 2024 NFL Draft, but he remains steadfast in his belief that he would have been the premier quarterback selected if he had chosen otherwise.
During an interview with Sports Illustrated’s Brice Butler in Las Vegas ahead of Super Bowl LVIII, the Colorado quarterback, and son of Buffalos head coach Deion Sanders, boldly asserted his status as the top quarterback in college football at present.
“I’m biased, but I don’t see a quarterback that’s better than me,” Sanders confidently stated. “I don’t see a quarterback that faced as much adversity as I have, enduring four different offensive coordinators in four years.”
Sanders highlighted his journey from an HBCU to a Power 5 program, emphasizing the significant pressure he has navigated. “Coming from an HBCU, transitioning to a Power 5 program, facing real pressure – many people underestimate the adversity I’ve overcome, especially being Deion Sanders’ son.”
While USC’s Caleb Williams and North Carolina’s Drake Maye are frequently touted as top prospects in the 2024 draft, with LSU’s Jayden Daniels also garnering attention, Sanders remains resolute in his self-assessment.
Opting to return to Colorado for the 2024 season, Sanders aims to build upon his impressive performance from the previous year. In 11 games, he boasted a completion rate of 69.3%, throwing for 3,230 yards, 27 touchdowns, and a mere three interceptions, solidifying his position as a force to be reckoned with in college football.
