Goff exuded confidence in a recent interview with MMQB's Peter King.
"I think my accuracy is as good as it gets at this level," Goff told King. "I think my pocket presence and my ability to extend plays speak for themselves. I'm confident I'll be the best quarterback in the draft."
Some might feel Goff is getting a little too confident based on that quote, but keep in mind -- it's not uncommon for prospects to talk a big game this time of year (Teddy Bridgewatermade a similar comment when he was a prospect a couple years ago). NFL teams could be turned off by arrogance in prospects, but they certainly want to see confidence from players they're evaluating.
And Goff is very highly regarded after a highly productive three seasons as Cal's starter. NFL Media draft expert Mike Mayock ranks Goff as his No. 2 QB in the draft behind Wentz. Mayock tweeted last week after the release of his rankings that he considers Goff the most polished QB in the draft, but favors Wentz's long-term potential.
"I'm not worried about it," Goff said. "I'm excited about it. Whatever team I go to, I'll be excited to go. I want to be the future of a franchise. I think I can be a guy who can make an impact right away."
At least one NFL GM doesn't think Goff -- or any other QB in the 2016 draft -- will be ready to start from Day 1. If Goff goes as early in the draft as projections are calling for, he'll likely be thrown into the fire quickly, and then his confidence will truly be put to the test.
