Trent Dilfer speaks about Elite 11 QBs at The Opening

SB Nation Recruiting

The Elite 11 head coach didn't mince words when discussing the strengths and weaknesses of this crop of quarterbacks.

Trent Dilfer sat down during The Opening to discuss the progress of his quarterbacks in Beaverton, Ore. Dilfer is the head coach of the Elite 11 quarterbacks, and the Elite 11 finals took place during The Opening. Despite the enormous collection of talent at the quarterback position, Dilfer was disappointed in many of the quarterbacks for making the same mistakes too many times.

Sean White (uncommitted), David Blough (Purdue commit), Luke Rubenzer (Cal), Kyle Allen (Texas A&M), Jacob Park (Georgia), David Cornwell (Alabama), and Jerrod Heard (Texas) drew compliments for their solid play, but he was disappointed in the others. He made sure to note that he's disappointed because he knows they can do better, and that if they weren't good enough, those mistakes wouldn't be an issue.
