The most glaring difference between them is their build. Allen is a tank with mobility, while I fear for SS's safety when he gets tackled at this level, let alone what would happen to him with NFL linebackers tackling him.
Did anyone even read what I wrote in that first post where Josh Allen was mentioned? My point was not to say that SS is the same as Josh Allen in every way. It was simply to illustrate that teams are willing to take chances on mobile QBs with questionable accuracy or decision making, similar to what the Bills did with Allen, what the Niners did with Lance, etc.... It's more common for teams to do that now than it was even 10 years ago. As athletic as SS is, I could see some team taking a chance on him as an UDFA or drafted player if he has a great year. I think he has plenty of arm strength to be an NFL QB in today's game.

Does Sanders get a car and Condo for his NIL contract? He is married with children so I can see him staying at OSU as he probably is getting over $200,000 this year from NIL contracts!

I was curious if he asked to be rated for NFL Draft as there seems to be limited QB in this years draft? He was top rated QB in Big 12 this year so he may risks injury or having a sub par year next year reducing his probability of being drafted in 2023. He has already graduated or will graduate in May is my understanding. I would hate to lose him but with the limited QB in this draft this year he may be surprised of his ranking by draft experts.
No he wasn't.

I know passing stats don't show the full story (especially for a mobile QB), but I wasn't expecting that only Kansas' QB had a worse QB rating! Those 7 picks to 1 TD vs. Baylor really did him in, statwise. Also, he didn't get to play against Missouri State. But still...

On an unrelated note, I appreciate that the OP recognized that Spencer Sanders is plural, and so used a plural verb for agreement ;)

I thought Spencer Sanders was rated first team All Big 12 this year. He may not have had the best Stats but clearly he was the best QB in the Big 12 this year. Now that Illingworth is leaving hopefully Sanders doesn’t test the NFL waters this year.
