You'll never know for sure. Look how many top 10 QBs have flamed out. The Packers didn't know when they took Rogers and he turned out good. I wonder how much of it for Rogers was related to the fact that he wasn't thrown into the fire right away -- that he had three years to mature, learn how to study, and watch another great QB.
For all we know the Joey Harringtons, Akili Smiths, Alex Smiths, etc, etc, all might have turned out like Rogers had they been able to sit for three years and watch a great QB every day and been nurtured by a QB friendly coaching staff.
