There is a significant amount of hype surrounding the San Francisco 49ers' $137.5 million quarterback. You can count Fox Sports' Colin Cowherd among those who believes Jimmy Garoppolo will have a bright NFL future.

During a segment on The Herd, Cowherd named Garoppolo among the seven quarterbacks he believes will dominate the NFL for the next decade. The others on the list are Andrew Luck, Carson Wentz, Russell Wilson, Sam Darnold, Aaron Rodgers, and Derek Carr.

Darnold, who is expected to be selected as a top pick in next month's draft, is the only quarterback on the list who has not yet thrown an NFL pass. Rodgers is the most seasoned veteran on the list and is a player Cowherd believes has another six years of NFL play left in him.

"Aaron will not play for 10 years but I imagine six or seven, and he'll win a Super Bowl or two, potentially," he said.

Cowherd's list speculates on which quarterbacks will be the elite NFL names once marquee players like Tom Brady, Drew Brees, and Ben Roethlisberger retire.

"Now this is 10 years, so Brady will be gone, Brees will be gone, Big Ben will be gone," Cowherd said. "These are franchise guys, and I'll call my shot right here. In the next decade, these seven quarterbacks will dominate the league."

Deshaun Watson of the Houston Texans is not on the list, which Cowherd attributes to the quarterback's injury history. Also noticeably absent are young players like Jared Goff of the Los Angeles Rams and Dak Prescott of the Dallas Cowboys.

"Now I didn't put Deshaun Watson in because he's had two ACLs," Cowherd said. "One at Clemson, one in Houston. If he gets another, he's not the same player."

49ers insider believes team may prefer WR Brandon Aiyuk play on fifth-year option

The San Francisco 49ers don't always do things like other NFL teams do. But they are consistent, for the most part. Seemingly every offseason, especially in recent years, a star player has wanted a new contract. From TE George Kittle and LB Fred Warner to WR Deebo Samuel and Edge Nick Bosa, the 49ers have given new contracts, but they have waited until late July-early August (and in Bosa's case—September) to do so, much to the chagrin of those players, who wanted their new deal sooner rather than later. It may not have happened as soon as the players wanted it to, but it has happened. Kittle's contract talks reportedly weren't as smooth as he might have hoped, Samuel famously scrubbed his social media accounts of all things 49ers, and Bosa didn't sign until a few days

Ctrl+Z: 4 key decisions 49ers might "undo" if given the chance

No one is perfect. Each of us makes mistakes. I do for sure. Peruse your way through the many articles I've written for 49ers Webzone and you'll see plenty of mistakes. Whether it's a typo or some prediction I offered that didn't go as I had thought. The San Francisco 49ers are no different. John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan have made their share of mistakes. Fortunately for all of us, they hit on more than they miss. But I wonder if we were able to catch them in a moment of complete transparency if they might admit to wanting to hit the Ctrl+Z and "undo" some moves. I doubt they will admit to such mistakes anytime soon, but fear not—I'm here to do it for them. Yes, I could write on the best decisions
