Max Duggan 2023 NFL Draft Profile

What a year it’s been for Max Duggan. Heading into the 2022-23 college football season, we didn’t even know if he would be the starter. After it’s all over, TCU went to the National Title game and Duggan is very much in the draftable quarterback mix. With the 2023 NFL Draft on the horizon, let’s review the draft profile for Max Duggan!

For starters, sometimes it’s just about the intangibles at the quarterback position. With Duggan, he’s got that dawg in him. We saw this guy put his body on the line over and over again to lift TCU past a place where they normally belong. That stuff just matters.

The mobility is much better than he may otherwise get credit for. He’s got real boot, scoot, and boogie to him. How about a 4.52 40 time? That is LEGIT! Obviously, a 40 time isn’t a super big indicator for quarterback success. The point here is that Duggan is a really underrated athlete and showed often his ability to not only evade the rush, but also pick up positive yardage with his legs. 28 career rushing touchdowns is no small number.

Life was also really easy for Duggan this past year. Garrett Riley was his play caller who has since departed for the Clemson job. Duggan was really comfortable in that RPO system and flourished. The red flags here are pretty obvious in my eyes. I can’t ignore what I saw at the Senior Bowl. There were some serious accuracy issues just throwing balls on air. I’m not sure Duggan is actually that talented. What if Riley elevated Duggan beyond a level that he really belongs? That if is scary.

The pure arm Strength isn’t good. Isn’t good at all. Not saying he can’t make throws down the field but we’re bordering on a level to where I’m not sure this is NFL caliber. Call it the Ryan Finley disease. Sorry but it happens.

I have a 6th round grade on Max Duggan. If you’re taking a flier on someone to be the next Gardner Minshew late in the draft, Duggan makes a lot of sense to be that target. I wouldn’t go any higher and the bump to 6th round status has everything to do with the plus mobility.
