In Sports Illustrated’s pre-draft scouting report, Carson Wentz was praised for his ability to run a complex offense at North Dakota State, and for his arm strength and quick release while under center. But there was one unknown about the eventual Eagles draft pick: can he escape from a locked bathroom?

It turns out the answer is yes, but he requires quite a bit of help.

The No. 2 pick was getting some gas in New Jersey when he used the washroom and discovered he was locked inside.

Like any good quarterback, Wentz was quick to thank Jesus and his supporting cast after his victory over the malfunctioning locks. Reports state the Eagles have signed “the other guy with the leg kick” to a three-year deal.
