Bears in the Pros

Sporting News takes a look back at pre-draft stories for current NFL stars. Today's throwback features every Cal fans' favorite NFL Draft: 2005.

So here we are with the age-old question of when to take a quarterback in the NFL draft. For every can't-miss franchise player who pans out, there are countless first-round busts who are out of the league with signing bonus money still in the bank.

So here we are with Aaron Rodgers, California's mercurial quarterback who was throwing passes at tiny Butte Community College not long ago. Now he's on everyone's radar as one of the top two quarterbacks in the draft. But is he worthy of such a high pick — of potentially the No. 1 overall selection?

"It's a big gamble," one AFC scout said. "He certainly has the tools, bue he's no lock. He's no (Peyton) Manning or (Troy) Akiman. But he's definitely not Ryan Leaf, either."
