Pro comparison: Ben Roethlisberger mixed with Andrew Luck. I struggled here because I wanted to compare Winston strictly to Andrew Luck but my heart wouldn’t let me do it. Winston compares best to Roethlisberger because of his big body frame accompanied with his off the field issues but compares to Luck with his enormous football knowledge and leadership. Winston will also be a first round pick much like the former and latter mentioned above. Winston is a franchise QB with traits that translate into one day being a HOF’er.
