Texas QB Quinn Ewers is being projected as a surefire first-round NFL draft pick,k but he’s still only a college freshman and has a lot to learn.
During Saturday’s Texas-Iowa State game, Ewers made a bizarre mistake that almost cost his team.
While trying to throw the ball away toward a receiver during a broken play, unfortunately, Ewers didn’t notice that his teammate was behind him.
Quinn Ewers just tried to throw the ball away…backwards. Loss of 36 yards. I’ve never seen that before from a QB. 4th and 56.
