The 2018 NFL Draft features a crop of top quarterback talent. There's the potential for three or four quarterbacks to go in the top-10.

Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, Baker Mayfield, and Josh Allen have all been mentioned as potential top picks in the upcoming draft. Lamar Jackson and Mason Rudolph are also among the top quarterbacks in the class.

However, there's one QB that thinks he's being disrespected.

Former Michigan quarterback John O'Korn sayd he's the most NFL-ready quarterback in the 2018 draft class.

Here's what he had to say, via the Detroit News.

"Honestly, I think I’m the most NFL-ready quarterback in this draft just as far as terminology, and knowing what to do on a day-to-day basis, game-planning. I was part of the game-plan meetings with coach Harbaugh, coach (Pep) Hamilton, the whole staff, coach (Tim) Drevno, all last fall, so just on a day-to-day basis what it takes to be an NFL quarterback, I think I would choose myself over any other guy in this draft in that regard."

There's no doubt Michigan employs some of the best coaches in the country. However, it's a bold statement coming from O'Korn - a quarterback who struggled to earn the starting role on his own team.

O'Korn played in nine games for the Wolverines in 2017. He racked up 973 yards and completed 53.5-percent of his passes. The former Houston Cougars starting quarterback was benched in favor of Brandon Peters.

Will O'Korn get drafted?
