    Interesting similarities between the two but I think Dylan has more pressure to become successful than Brett did coming through college. He's at a better program and he has his uncle's shadow. But hey, wouldn't mind seeing him flourish.

    He's only 5"11 which isn't the end all to have a successful career-- especially a successful college career as opposed to NFL. Most successful QBs are at least 6"2.

    6'0 to 6'1. Listed at 6'0 at the Saints homepage.
    Flutie was 5'10.

    But those are the exception of the norm. Smaller QBs can't see very well through the OL, their passes are batted easilier, but the most important thing, they usually have smaller hands, so their grip of the ball is worse...

    He hasnt played a lick of college and he is a QB, lets see how he does in college before we make comparisons. Hopefully he isnt as much as a tool as his uncle.

    I am sure he will grow another inch or two while in college because he is still only like 18 or 19 right now? Men supposedly grow until 21.
