2021 NFL Draft Quarterback Class Thoughts
With the NFL Draft just three days away i thought it would be good to dump some of my thoughts on this qb class after 3 months of watching film on them.
Overrated – Mac Jones (Alabama) There is no denying the talent Jones has to throw the football & to make decisions. Let’s just all agree he was throwing passes to all-world receiving talent going up against college defenses & coordinators who were severely outmatched on a weekly basis by Crimson Tide OC Steve Sarkesian. He is not a 1st Rd Pick, more like a late 2nd or 3rd. I actually like Jones’ skill-set. I believe he will last in the league for a while but mostly as a backup player. May prefer to stay in the South if possible (Panthers, Falcons)
Severely overrated – Kyle Trask (Florida) Trask is one if not the most overrated QB’s in this class. Played in an ideal offense at UF. Was surrounded by possibly more talent than even Mac Jones was at Bama. The film tells me that Trask can’t move (although looks to be improved per his Pro Day) & has a below average arm. His accuracy also is not pinpoint. Throws with very good touch & is solid mechanically for the most part but his release can get loopy. I have Trask pegged as a 6th-7th Rd. selection.
Will over-deliver – Trey Lance (North Dakota St.) Watch his film & you will understand. (Multiple Pro Bowls)
Will under-deliver – Trevor Lawrence (Clemson)
Good chance to become a team’s franchise QB – Justin Fields
Biggest bust potential – Zach Wilson (BYU) Come on, he’s stuck on the NY Jets.
Biggest Sleeper – Brady Davis (Illinois St.) Top three arm talent in the entire class (no Joke) He is going to make a name for himself somewhere.
