Even though several analysts expected Colorado star Shedeur Sanders to declare for the upcoming NFL Draft, the talented quarterback decided to stay and play under his father, Deion, for another year.

Coach Prime claimed that his son was having a great time and learning a lot in Boulder, so there was no reason to rush things.

Also, perhaps staying in college for another year would help him elevate his draft stock and become the No. 1 pick in 2025.

With that in mind, the dual-threat gunslinger stated that he doesn’t think any quarterback from this class was better than him anyway (via ProFootballTalk):

“I’m biased, but I don’t see a quarterback that’s better than me,” Sanders told SI.com. “I don’t see a quarterback that went through as much adversity as me, that had four [offensive coordinators] in four years.”

Not many analysts would agree, though, as USC’s Caleb Williams and UNC’s Drake Maye would’ve still been drafted ahead of him.

Then again, Sanders does have a valid point about his ability to overcome the tough spot he’s been put in regarding his coaching staff, and he’s been able to produce regardless of who’s calling the shots or designing the plays for the offense.

Also, it’s a fact that he played through injury for a big stretch of the season.

Last year, he threw for 3,230 yards with 27 touchdowns against just three interceptions.

Needless to say, he does carry a big weight for being the son of one of the greatest athletes in the history of the game, but he continues to make a name for himself and prove that he’s his own man.

Now, he’ll have another full season to put his money where his mouth is.
