It’s never too early for draft talk! We’re going to dive into 2021 NFL Draft rankings. Starting with the quarterbacks, it looks like a VERY good incoming class. There’s already a little bit of surplus in the league and more young studs are coming. Let’s take a look at the way too early quarterback big board for the 2021 NFL Draft.
1: Trevor Lawrence (Clemson)
Trevor Lawrence is arguably the best prospect ever. 6-foot-6, mobile, huge arm, and just ridiculously gifted. He could have played in the NFL as a true Freshman. He’s can’t miss talented. Do I really need to say anything else?
2: Justin Fields (Ohio State)
I don’t like throwing this comparison around but I think this is true. I compared Tua Tagovailoa to Russell Wilson. Well, Justin Fields is the next Deshaun Watson. He’s magic man, el diablo. Fields has eyes in the back of his head like Watson. Special athletically and always makes the right decision with pinpoint accuracy. 41 touchdowns and 3 picks in 2019. Enough said.
3: Jamie Newman (Georgia)
We’re going to find out exactly what Jamie Newman is now. He’s got a much better team around him with Georgia compared to Wake Forest. Newman has good size and mobility for the position. He also has a laser. Now we will find out if he can be accurate enough and carry a team to prominence.
4: Trey Lance (North Dakota State)
I haven’t done my homework on Trey Lance yet. However, 28 touchdowns and 0 interceptions is enough to get my attention. From the highlights I’ve seen, it looks like he has special tools. He will be on my list to watch in 2019. The one thing I’ve noticed is that Lance isn’t really the focal point. The running game is. He only had 287 attempts in 16 games. Is Lance able to carry a team or is it the other way around. I can’t wait to find out.
5: Tanner Morgan (Minnesota)
This is a backup for me. Tanner Morgan has a chance to prove maybe he can be more. I just don’t see the arm talent. The Minnesota product can make throws and be accurate. Just don’t see the special arm to go with it.
6: Mac Jones (Alabama)
The sample size is small but Mac Jones realistically did a nice job for Alabama at the end of the year. 68.8 percent to go along with a TD-INT ratio of 14-3. We’re going to find out if Jones has something. A: can he hold of Bryce Young? B: Can he remain productive over the course of a full season?
7: Kellen Mond (Texas A&M)
I don’t think Kellen Mond has it but he made a smart call coming back to school. He makes the final spot on the watch list. I saw terrible accuracy and poor decision making a year ago. 61.6 percent with a 20-9 TD to INT ratio isn’t close to okay. Athletically, he has it. That’s why he makes the final spot. We will see if he can improve on a mediocre season.
