Carson Wentz   #11 QB

Height: 6-5   Weight: 237   Age: 26

Born: 12/30/1992 Raleigh , NC

College: North Dakota State

Experience: 4th season

High School: Century HS [Bismarck, ND]









Draft 2016

Pick No.2

Selected By: Philadelphia Eagles

Round: 1

Pick (Overall): 2 (2)

Pick Analysis: In his first year as a starter for the Bison in 2014, all Wentz did was throw for 3,111 yards and 25 touchdowns, leading the team to its fourth consecutive FCS Championship. What did the Bismarck, N.D. native do for an encore? Just come back from a broken right wrist that sidelined him for two months to lead NDSU in a fifth-straight title game victory. He started seven games in his senior year, completing 62.5 percent of his passes for 1,651 yards and 17 touchdowns (and four interceptions) while also running for six scores. Intelligence and work ethic are no issues for Wentz, who was named to the College Sports Information Directors Association All-American squad for the second-straight year.
