In my college career I lost to Randy Moss, Terrell Owens, Chad Pennington, and Dexter Coakley. All at the I-AA level.

Too bad the SoCon is dying. Birthplace of the ACC and SEC.

It is much easier to make the transition from 1-AA to the NFl at running back or linemen or even receiver versus quarterback.  Unless you are using Chad Pennington as proof of successful transition in the NFL.

I was just remembering some of the talent I shared the field with in I-AA in the SoCon.

I said currently playing not just this year. A guy could have come in the league a decade ago and still be playing so that would be current. There are always exceptions to the rule and there are guys from division III who have played in the NFL.  I just asked who was current and there is one- Flacco.  That does suggest that there are quarterback exceptions who are talented enough to make the transition.  It still doesn't mean Edwards would be one of them.

And I believe it's well known that my patience for AE is thin because we traded up for his ass.

While Jacksonville will come to ASU today to audition him as a return man only, he said the Panthers, Colts and Dolphins all want to come here to see him throw and run routes. Along with the Panthers, representatives from Kansas City, Buffalo, Washington, Detroit, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Jacksonville, Philadelphia and Cleveland were on hand for Tuesday’s workout.

There, he'll work as both a passer and a receiver.
"The Panthers have been showing a good amount of interest, more than any team," Edwards wrote on the website. 
He said New England and Jacksonville have also asked for workouts, along with Indianapolis.

Just to reiterate that he wasn't "just worked out at receiver".

 

Either way, the argument can go back and forth until infinity because we will never know. He's three years into being converted into a WR and he's never going to be converted back. Neither side can prove their point beyond a shadow of a doubt because there's just no way to do so. There are those who believe he could have been successful as an NFL QB, and I'm one of them. There are those who will flat out say that he couldn't, like P55, and no argument will sway them.

There have been guys from division III who have played in the NFL as well. We can do a history of any division and find outliers but it doesn't prove that Edwards had the skills to play in the NFl. My question was whether there were any current quarterbacks who came from division 1-AA.  And Kraq was right- Flacco came from Delaware.  I am not sure how that quickly devolved into a discussion about what QBs played in I-AA as if I said that there has never been a quarterback from division I-AA or even division II who played quarterback in the league.  Still  guys like Warner and Delhomme weren't good enough to play in the NFL from division I-AA out of the chute.  They had to go to NFl Europe to hone their skills before being given a chance to play.  With that not being around anymore it is even harder to show what you can do without development.

I also want to point out that he wasn't "only worked out at receiver" as P55 claimed. Multiple teams worked him out at only QB, including the Pats and Eagles.

I meant only as a quarterback not as both which is what they did.  Cmon now no one was ever going to draft him at quarterback.  They might have been looking at an undrafted free agent status but most folks felt that if he were drafted it would be as a receiver not a quarterback.

 

You guys are over the top.

Any suggestion he could play quarterback??  Undersized,injury prone, innaccurate???  LOL
