Trey Lance turns 21 today. He was only a 20-year-old when San Francisco drafted him No. 3 overall. Who was the last quarterback selected No. 1 overall who was even younger than Lance?
Alex Smith, picked by San Francisco in 2005. Smith’s birthday, oddly, is almost the same as Lance’s – he turned 37 on Friday. Michael Vick (No. 1 in 2001) and Sam Darnold (No. 3 in 2018) were both slightly younger than the San Francisco pair when drafted – both have June birthday. Tommy Maddox was a 20-year-old first-round pick by the Broncos in 1992, and with a September birthday.
