At NFLPA game, Gustafson forging own identity

(STATS) - The comparisons have come frequently for two seasons - two quarterbacks who share a similar strapping build and played in higher-profile FCS programs.

The talk was heightened at the beginning of the 2015 season when Brady Gustafson and Montana beat Carson Wentz and North Dakota State.

"When you draw a comparison to somebody like that, you're just honored," Gustafson said. "To see his progression, especially for an FCS guy, it's nothing from humbling."
