Twitter reacts to QB editor Sam Ehlinger
The Indianapolis Colts used their sixth-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft to select quarterback Sam Ehlinger out of Texas.
Despite trading for Carson Wentz this offseason and the quarterback position not being a position of need, the Colts are calling on Ehlinger likely to compete for the replacement role with 2020 fourth-round pick Jacob Eason.
They picked Ehlinger with the pick they received from the New Orleans Saints in the exchange of No. 206 overall.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to Ehlinger’s Colts selection:
Carson Wentz: Well, I’m on a team with no dangerous backup quarterbacks.

Another quarterback from the set: Sam Ehlinger of Texas heading to #Colts at No. 218 in the general classification in the sixth round. One of the smartest and toughest QBs in the project. https://t.co/VfiTJ4iLJT pic.twitter.com/7pgqIIQdn9

Sam Ehlinger is by far the best QB ever won in the 6th round

I like this choice of Sam Ehlinger. I think he has a chance to beat Eason as a substitute.
