Carson Wentz perhaps could become the King of Fling

The Anointed One. The Heir, make that Air, to the Throne.

Also known as Carson Wentz.

The No. 2 overall NFL draft pick this year made his preseason quarterback debut for the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday night and gave an intriguing glimpse into what could be a rose-colored future.

Playing with backup receivers who couldn’t get any separation even with a crowbar and an OL that couldn’t block a hat, Wentz — who has prime size and arm strength — exhibited poise and pocket presence in the face of a blitz.

His stat line won’t sear retinas — 12 of 24 for 89 yards and one pick, 15 rushing yards — but his ability to move at his size, throw on the run and fit footballs into tight windows perhaps was a foreshadowing of The Golden Arm Messiah.

Because the kid looks like The Quarterback.
