  1. Justin Herbert, QB, Oregon
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 225.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.72.
    Projected Round (2019): 1.

    10/18/18: On the year, Herbert has completed 63 percent of his passes for 1,613 yards with 17 touchdowns and five interceptions.

    Against Stanford, Herbert really played an impressive game. He showed a dynamic skill set and looked like an NFL starting quarterback. With his big arm andathleticism, Herbert had his way with a tough defense. As a passer, he threw some lasers into tight windows to beat good coverage. Herbert showed impressiveanticipation to throw passes before his receivers made their breaks and to lead them open with good ball placement. Herbert was a very accurate passer who onlyhad three incompletions heading into overtime. He played well enough to lead his team to a victory, but his teammates' fumbles were back-breakers.

    There are definitely some things that Herbert needs to work on for the NFL. First of all, he has to move his eyes more and get more adept at working throughhis progressions. He can lock on to primary targets or sides of the field. Herbert does show the ability to move his eyes and scan through targets, but he needsto do it more consistently. Herbert also has to speed up his clock as he can take some sacks from holding onto the ball far too long. Those issues can beimproved as he gains experience, but his skill set is something that can't be coached. The Stanford tape could help Herbert to be a high first-round pick.

    8/28/18: Sources who have already completed advance work on the 2019 NFL Draft's class say Herbert has big-time potential. He only played in eight games during 2017,but completed 67 percent of his passes for 1,750 yards with 13 touchdowns and three interceptions. The sophomore also ran for five touchdowns. As a freshman,Herbert completed 64 percent of his passes for 1,936 yards with 19 touchdowns and four interceptions.

    Herbert displays good size and a strong arm with the ability to loft in touch passes. He can drop in passes with nice ball placement that leads his receivers,and he beats quality coverage with the location of his passes. With his height and size, Herbert can comfortably stand tall in the pocket and demonstrate thepatience to let routes develop. Along with his arm talent, Herbert is a quality athlete who has the ability to pick up yards on the ground.

    For the NFL, Herbert needs to improve his field vision and working through his progressions. His college offense often has him throwing to his first target oronly focusing on one side of the field. Still, there is no doubt that Herbert has the skill set to start on Sundays and possesses plenty of upside to develop.






  2. Drew Lock, QB, Missouri
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 226.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.85.
    Projected Round (2019): 1-2.

    10/18/18: Lock has completed 59 percent of his passes in 2018 for 1,629 yards with 12 touchdowns and six interceptions. He played well and fought hard against Georgia,but he was plagued by dropped passes. Lock then had a disappointing performance against Alabama, committing three turnovers.

    Scouts who were through Missouri's fall camp label Lock's arm as legit. He has a rifle and is a good athlete. They say that he can really spin it and is ableto make every throw required in the NFL. Some sources have taken a liking to Lock while others are somewhat skeptical. Sources believe his skill set andathleticism are similar to Jay Cutler but offset with a nerdy/quiet personality that is similar to Eli Manning. Lock is a quiet guy and not a vocal rah-rahleader who takes over the room. He does not like to be the center of attention and is a little nerdy. Some general managers and coaches want their quarterbackto be a commanding personality to lead the team, and Lock does not fit that type of player.

    8/28/18: According to NFL teams' preseason data provided by team sources, Lock checks in at 6-foot-3, 226 pounds. He has 33.63-inch arms, and a wingspan of 77.5 inches.He is said to run the 40 in 4.85 seconds. Sources say Lock is known to be a quiet player who is not a vocal leader. His lack of leadership skills could hurt himwith some team evaluators who want their quarterback to have a presence as a team leader.

    Lock set the SEC single regular-season record for touchdown passes in 2017 with 43. He went on a tear in the last half of the year to lead Missouri to sixstraight wins after a 1-5 start. Lock completed 58 percent of his passes in 2017 for 3,964 yards with 44 touchdowns and 13 interceptions.

    Lock is a gunslinger-style quarterback who has a big arm with the ability to throw any pass. However, he needs to improve his accuracy, field vision, and thespeed at which he works through progressions. Lock can be prone to overthrows, plus can put too much heat on some passes. Lock has good size and can fit thepass into tight windows. He throws the ball well downfield and shows some timing and anticipation. Lock does have the propensity to force throws to coveredwideouts, occasionally trusting his arm too much to beat tight coverage. He also has some mobility. Lock could stand to make improvements before going to theNFL, thus he was wise to return to Missouri before turning pro.


  3. Ryan Finley, QB, N.C. State
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 208.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.80.
    Projected Round (2019): 1-2.

    10/18/18: In 2018, Finley has completed 70 percent of his passes for 1,621 yards with 10 touchdowns and three interceptions. He has been an accurate game-manager whodoes a good job of protecting the football and leading an efficient passing offense.

    8/28/18: Scouts who did advance work for the 2019 NFL Draft were impressed with what they saw from Finley. They think he has the talent to play at the next level andliked the tape he produced from his junior year. If Finley can build on his 2017 season, he has the upside to rise in the leadup to the 2019 NFL Draft due tothe quarterback-hungry nature of the league. According to NFL teams' preseason data provided by team sources, Finley checks in at 6-foot-3, 208 pounds. He has33.5-inch arms, 9.38-inch hands, and a wingspan of 77.5 inches as well.

    Finley was a good game-manager for the Wolfpack in 2017, completing 65 percent of his passes for 3,518 yards with 17 touchdowns and six interceptions. He madegood decisions and protected the football well. In 2016, Finley completed 60 percent of his passes for 3,055 yards with 18 touchdowns and eight interceptions.

    There is a lot to like about Finley translating to the NFL. The most important trait for any quarterback is accuracy, which Finley has. Consistently, hedemonstrates good ball placement to complete passes and keep the ball away from the defense. Finley makes good decisions and shows impressive ball security. Heis adept at avoiding interceptions and rarely makes mistakes from being overly aggressive. Finley improved his deep ball passing as a junior and made somebeautiful throws downfield. There are a few things that Finley could stand to improve as a senior. Field vision is an issue for the next level, as Finley canlock onto his primary read. He needs to move his eyes and work through progressions. Starring down his primary receiver will lead to interceptions.




  4. Clayton Thorson, QB, Northwestern
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 227.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.75.
    Projected Round (2019): 1-3.

    10/18/18: In 2018, Thorson has completed 63 percent of his passes for 1,755 yards with nine touchdowns and seven interceptions. He has had a solid start to the year forthe most part. In the early going, Thorson did not look 100 percent yet as a runner, but he showed some improved ball placement and mechanics. Thorson playedwell against Michigan and then dominated Michigan State. Thorson's accuracy has been excellent. He made some particularly beautiful throws to lead Northwesternto the road win over the Spartans. Following that start, Thorson led a last-minute comeback to beat Nebraska in overtime.

    8/28/18: According to NFL teams' preseason data provided by team sources, Thorson checks in at 6-foot-4, 227 pounds. He also has 31.5-inch arms, 9.75-inch hands, and awingspan of 76.5 inches. He is said to run the 40 in 4.75 seconds as well.

    In 2017, Thorson completed 60 percent of his passes for 2,844 yards with 15 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. He picked up eight rushing touchdowns as well.Thorson suffered a torn ACL in Northwestern's bowl game after making a catch on a halfback throwback. His numbers in 2017 were held back by a terrible offensiveline, awful wide receivers and zero play-makers at his disposal. Thorson completed 59 percent of his passes in 2016 for 3,182 yards with 22 touchdowns and nineinterceptions.

    WalterFootball.com first reported last season that Thorson would return for his senior year. I had heard early in the fall of 2017 that Thorson would go backunless he graded out as a first-rounder by the NFL Draft Advisory. Scouts who were through Northwestern told me that they were impressed with what they saw fromThorson on tape and in practice. Thorson has shown that he has pro potential in terms of his skill set. He can throw the deep out with a fastball that can befit into tight windows. Thorson also has a quick delivery, but is a bit too mechanical. Scouts say that he has a strong arm, is smart and athletic, and improvesyear over year.

    In speaking with a general manager who watched tape of Thorson early last November, they graded Thorson as a late second-/early third-rounder. They thought hewas a decent athlete, but was bit mechanical as a thrower and doesn't go downfield enough. Thorson wasn't without some lowlights on tape. However, a lot ofThorson's mistakes came from trying to do too much with his lackluster supporting cast was terrible; if he didn't make a play for Northwestern, nobody elsewould. His performance in the fourth quarter against Wisconsin was extremely impressive, although one of those trying-too-hard mistakes led to the comebackeffort falling short.

    Early in fall 2017, some scouts said that they anticipated giving Thorson a second-round grade, unless he fell off with his play. At the same time, they thoughthe could rise in the leadup to the 2018 NFL Draft. The reason for that is he a good leader who gets along well with all of his teammates. While Thorson is adevout Christian, he knows how to be one of the guys and get along with the different groups in the locker room. They think that evaluators could fall in lovewith Thorson during the interview process.


  5. Daniel Jones*, QB, Duke
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 215.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.85.
    Projected Round (2019): 1-3.

    10/18/18: Jones has completed 70 percent of his passes in 2018 for 615 yards with five touchdowns and one interception. Scouts say that Jones has a good skill set, andthey feel that he is getting good preparation for the NFL. They also believe that Jones is likely to return to school for 2019. He missed two games this seasonwith a collarbone injury.

    8/28/18: Jones has earned some compliments from scouting sources. They think that the redshirt junior has some physical talent and also is getting great coachingdevelopment from David Cutcliffe. In 2017, Jones completed 56 percent of his passes for 2,439 yards with 12 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. As a freshman, hemade 63 percent of his passes for 2,836 yards with 16 touchdowns and nine interceptions. Jones has good height and a nice skill set. He could be a quarterbackwho continues to rise over 2018 and 2019.


  6. Jarrett Stidham*, QB, Auburn
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 210.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.65.
    Projected Round (2019): 2-3.

    10/18/18: Stidham has completed 61 percent of his passes in 2018 for 1,499 yards with seven touchdowns and four interceptions. Team sources have been disappointed withStidham's play, which has included underwhelming games against the likes of Mississippi State, LSU and Tennessee. Stidham should return to Auburn next year toimprove before going pro.

    8/28/18: According to NFL teams' preseason data provided by team sources, Stidham checks in at 6-foot-2, 210 pounds. He also has 32-inch arms, 9.5-inch hands, and awingspan of 75.88 inches. He is said to run the 40 in 4.65 seconds.

    Stidham completed 67 percent of his passes in 2017 for 3,158 yards with 18 touchdowns and six interceptions. Early in the season, Stidham had some struggles,but he steadily improved and threw more accurately while showing more comfort in the pocket. Stidham came through with some efficient games to knock off bothundefeated Georgia and Alabama. He made real strides during the 2017 season.

    "It's the tale of two tapes," said one scout. "I think he could end up being worthy of a [first-round pick]. He wasn't playing with top bona fide receiverseither [in 2017]. [The Tigers] say he is going to have more command of the offense this year. He has that side-arm release, but he's a good player. He's apretty good athlete, and he has some speed now. There are things for him to work on, but I believe he's worthy of a first-round projection entering the season."

    Another NFC scout who was at spring games and who attended spring practices was even higher on Stidham's pro potential. They were very effusive in their praisefor Stidham and think he could end up being a high first-round pick. Here is how they summarized Stidham:

    "Okay size; growth potential; high football IQ; good, but not great, arm with good mechanics and ability to change arm slot; better touch than power thrower;quick release to beat the rush. He improved his eyes versus pressure over the last nine games [of 2017]. He has a good mental clock; very mobile [with]excellent speed for a quarterback; [a] legitimate threat on the ground - he beat Alabama because he continually broke contain on crucial third downs. Plus. he'sgot an incredible story of perseverance that defines his mettle as a person. The kid is a legit winner. Those are all the types of positives that will make himgrow quickly on general managers and directors as season wears on if he continues his ascent. He's built mentally and skill-set wise for the pro landscape andhas the makeup and goods to run a franchise."

    "Not as physically gifted as Herbert in Oregon, but [Stidham] can throw a good ball. He has very good mobility to execute flexible scheme design, and hisfootball IQ is as good as it gets. He's a pro already in that regard and it was pretty easy to see. Guys like him acclimate quickly and win locker rooms notjust with approach but he has a good skill set to back it up as a player also."

    As a freshman at Baylor, Stidham flashed by completing 69 percent of his passes for 1,265 yards with 12 touchdowns and two interceptions. His freshman seasonwas ended early because of injury, but he flashed serious ability with arm strength, athleticism and accuracy. After the scandal that claimed the job of ArtBriles, Stidham eventually landed at Auburn after attending community college for a year.






  7. Will Grier*, QB, West Virginia
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 221.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.80.
    Projected Round (2019): 2-4.

    10/18/18: In 2018, Grier has completed 71 percent of his passes for 1,919 yards with 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions. Multiple team sources who have seen Grier inperson say he has just average arm strength and when he can't set his feet, he has a hard time driving the ball.

    8/28/18: According to NFL teams' preseason data provided by team sources, Grier checks in at 6-foot-2, 221 pounds. He has 30.88-inch arms, 9.48-inch hands, and awingspan of 74.5 inches. He is said to run the 40 in 4.80 seconds.

    Grier played well overall for West Virginia in 2017. He has a quality arm and can throw the ball with accuracy, but needs to improve his field vision anddecision-making for the NFL. Grier was only in his first full season as a starter in 2017, so he was wise return to West Virginia for 2018 to improve beforegoing pro. For 2017, Grier completed 64 percent of his passes for 3,490 yards with 34 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. He also had to have surgery after afinger injury sustained versus Texas. That caused him to miss the final two games of the year, against Oklahoma and Utah.

    In 2015 playing for Florida, Grier completed 66 percent of his passes for 1,204 yards with 10 touchdowns and three interceptions. He was impressive for theGators before testing positive for steroids. That led to him transferring to West Virginia. Sources say that Grier and his family can be high-maintenancepersonalities who some teams are going to shy away from.


  8. Dwayne Haskins*, QB, Ohio State
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 220.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.78.
    Projected Round (2019): 2-3.

    10/18/18: Haskins has a quality arm and flashes the ability to be a good distributor of the football. In 2018, he has completed 72 percent of his passes for 2,331 yardswith 28 touchdowns and four interceptions. Haskins struggled as a pocket passer against Penn State. As a sophomore, he competed 70 percent of his passes for 565yards with four touchdowns and an interception.


  9. Nate Stanley*, QB, Iowa
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 242.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.88.
    Projected Round (2019): 2-4.

    10/18/18: Stanley has completed 62 percent of his passes in 2018 for 1,473 yards with 15 touchdowns and five interceptions. He has good size and experience in apro-style system. As a sophomore in 2017, Stanley completed 56 percent of his passes for 2,437 yards with 26 touchdowns and six interceptions.




  10. Jacob Eason*, QB, Washington
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 235.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.80.
    Projected Round (2019): 2-4.

    10/18/18: Eason is sitting out this season after transferring out of Georgia.

    8/28/18: Eason was injured in the 2017 season opener for Georgia, and Jake Fromm remained the starter for the rest of the season. The Bulldogs didn't want to changetheir winning formula once Eason was healthy, keeping Eason as the backup. After the season, Eason transferred to Washington, and he will have to sit out the2018 season due to NCAA transfer rules. Thus, Eason is more likely to be a prospect for the 2020 or 2021 NFL Draft.

    I know some scouts who are high Eason, so he definitely would get serious consideration if he entered the 2019 NFL Draft, for which he will be eligible. Easonhas excellent size and a quality arm with pocket-passing potential. He also got good experience working in an offense under a respected coordinator with JimChaney that correlates more to the NFL than the vast majority of college offenses being used. Kirby Smart said one of the sad parts about Eason leaving Georgiawas that his growth under Chaney wasn't seen nationally. Eason completed 55 percent of his passes in 2016 for 2,430 yards with 16 touchdowns and eightinterceptions.


  11. Shea Patterson*, QB, Michigan
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 203.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.70.
    Projected Round (2019): 3-4.

    10/18/18: Patterson has connected on 69 percent of his passes in 2018 for 1,311 yards with 10 touchdowns and three interceptions. He has occasionally struggled withaccuracy and throwing from the pocket.

    In the season opener, Patterson had trouble moving the ball against Notre Dame and was indecisive for a lot of the game. Against the Fighting Irish, hecompleted 20-of-30 passes for 227 yards with an interception, plus lost a critical fumble thanks to poor ball security. He showed a bad habit to retreat andbackpedal in the pocket rather than get the ball out. He felt the rush when it wasn't there at times and held the ball too long when the pocket was collapsing.The outing against the Fighting Irish is not a tape that makes Patterson look like a first-round pick.

    8/28/18: Patterson transferred to Michigan after last season, and his game could really improve under Jim Harbaugh. In a tumultuous 2017 for Ole Miss, Pattersoncompleted 64 percent of his passes for 2,259 yards with 17 touchdowns and nine interceptions before a season-ending knee injury. Scouting sources have told methat they think Patterson could be a stronger version of Johnny Manziel without all the off-the-field problems. Patterson (6-2, 203) completed 55 percent of hispasses for 880 yards with six touchdowns and three interceptions in his three games of 2016. He has a good skill set and the talent around him to produce wellin 2018.


  12. Brian Lewerke*, QB, Michigan State
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 212.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.80.
    Projected Round (2019): 3-5.

    10/18/18: Lewerke has completed 60 percent of his passes this season for 1,587 yards with eight touchdowns and seven interceptions.

    8/28/18: One team source who has done advance work on the 2019 NFL Draft said they like the stature, field vision, processing speed, and how the ball comes out of thehand of Lewerke, Oregon's Justin Herbert, Auburn's Jarrett Stidham and Iowa State's Kyle Kempt. Of course, those prospects could rise and fall over the courseof the 2018 season, but they have nice starts with impressing some evaluators.

    In 2017, Lewerke completed 59 percent of his passes for 2,580 yards with 17 touchdowns and seven interceptions. He needs to improve his accuracy in 2018.




  13. Kyle Kempt, QB, Iowa State
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 210.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.84.
    Projected Round (2019): 3-5.

    10/18/18: Iowa State had its Week 1 game against South Dakota State canceled. Kempt was 15-of-21 for 126 yards in a low-scoring loss to Iowa and has missed the last fivegames with an injury.

    8/28/18: One team source who has done advance work on the 2019 NFL Draft said they like the stature, field vision, processing speed, and how the ball comes out of thehands of Kempt, Oregon's Justin Herbert, Auburn's Jarrett Stidham and Michigan State's Brian Lewerke. Of course, those prospects could rise and fall over thecourse of the 2018 season, but they have nice starts with impressing some evaluators.

    In 2017, Kempt completed 67 percent of his passes for 1,473 yards with 13 touchdowns and three interceptions over eight games of playing time. Kempt couldproduce a huge 2018 season playing in a weak defensive conference.


  14. Deondre Francois*, QB, Florida State
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 205.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.68.
    Projected Round (2019): 3-5.

    10/18/18: This season, Francois has completed 61 percent of his passes for 1,506 yards with 11 touchdowns and six interceptions.

    8/28/18: Francois battled hard against Alabama in the 2017 season opener, completing 19-of-33 passes for 210 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. In thatcontest unfortunately, Francois suffered a season-ending patellar-tendon injury, which required surgery. Francois has an early-round skill set, but he needs tostay healthy and develop as a pocket passer.

    Francois showed a powerful arm and an athletic skill set in his debut for Florida State in 2016. The redshirt freshman completed 59 percent of his passes for3,350 yards with 20 touchdowns and seven interceptions. It will be interesting to see if Francois can improve his accuracy and pocket passing as he gainsexperience. He has a lot of upside and could break out in 2018.


  15. Easton Stick, QB, North Dakota State
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 221.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.75.
    Projected Round (2019): 4-6.

    10/18/18: So far this season, Stick has completed 56 percent of his passes for 974 yards with 10 touchdowns and an interception.

    8/28/18: Stick has generated some media buzz after three nice seasons at North Dakota State. The senior has a quality arm and also has mobility. Last season, Stickcompleted 62 percent of his passes for 2,466 yards with 28 touchdowns and eight interceptions. He also ran for 663 yards with 12 scores. Stick completed 59percent of his passes the year before for 2,331 yards with 19 touchdowns and nine interceptions. He ran for seven scores and 685 yards as well that season. OnNFL team's preseason watch lists, Stick was not listed in the group of players with first- through fourth-round projections. However, a lot can and will changeover the fall and leadup to the 2019 NFL Draft. Thus, it is entirely possible that Stick rises to be an early-rounder.


  16. Nick Fitzgerald, QB, Mississippi State
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 230.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.74.
    Projected Round (2019): 5-7.

    10/18/18: In 2018, Fitzgerald has completed 49 percent of his passes for 709 yards with four touchdowns and three interceptions. He has racked up seven rushingtouchdowns on the year and put up 195 yards on the ground against Auburn. Fitzgerald struggled with his accuracy in the losses to Kentucky and Florida. He isnot good enough as a pocket passer to be an early-round prospect for the 2019 NFL Draft.

    Fitzgerald has really struggled as a passer this season. He has been very inaccurate and routinely missed open receivers with wild throws. He has showed a skillset with size, running ability, and an arm, but his passing limitations make him a developmental backup at best in the NFL.

    8/28/18: In 2017, Fitzgerald completed 55 percent of his passes for 1,782 yards with 15 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. He totaled 14 rushing touchdowns as well. Anankle injury in the Egg Bowl ended his season early, but sources had told me much earlier that Fitzgerald was going to return for his senior year.

    Some team sources like Fitzgerald and feel he has potential, while others aren't excited about him. In his first year as the starter after Dak Prescott moved tothe NFL, Fitzgerald completed 54 percent of his passes for 2,423 yards with 21 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He also ran for 16 touchdowns. Fitzgerald haspro size and will need to develop his accuracy and pocket passing.


  17. Jake Bentley*, QB, South Carolina
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 220.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.74.
    Projected Round (2019): 6-FA.

    10/18/18: Bentley has completed 61 percent of his passes in 2018 for 1,151 yards with 10 touchdowns and seven interceptions. He struggled against Georgia and Kentucky.

    8/28/18: Bentley is a gritty quarterback who led South Carolina to a 9-4 season in 2017. He completed 62 percent of his passes for 2,555 yards with 16 touchdowns and 11interceptions. He also ran for six touchdowns. Bentley needs to develop his pocket-passing skills, but last year, he also was without top play-maker DeeboSamuel, who missed almost the entire season.


  18. Kelly Bryant*, QB, Clemson
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 220.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.70.
    Projected Round (2019): 6-FA.

    10/18/18: Bryant completed 67 percent of his passes in 2018 for 461 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. After being beaten out by Trevor Lawrence for thestarting job, Bryant decided to transfer from Clemson.

    8/28/18: Early in the 2017 season, Bryant flashed some potential for Clemson, but then he struggled as a pocket passer for a lot of the year. He completed 67 percent ofhis passes on the season for 2,678 yards with 13 touchdowns and six interceptions. He did a lot of damage with his legs, running for 665 yards and 11 scores onthe ground. Perhaps Bryant can improve with more experience, but entering this season, scouts who had done advance work on the 2019 prospects thought he wasmore of a late-rounder.


  19. Justice Hansen, QB, Arkansas State
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 218.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.81.
    Projected Round (2019): 6-FA.

    10/18/18: So far in 2018, Hansen has completed 64 percent of his passes for 1,538 yards with 11 touchdowns and five interceptions. Predictably, he struggled againstAlabama.

    8/28/18: Team sources tell me that they feel that Hansen has a loose arm and plays in a system that produces big numbers via easy completions. They have Hansen gradedlate entering the 2018 season. In 2017, he completed 64 percent of his passes for 3,630 yards with 34 touchdowns and 15 interceptions.


  20. Jake Browning, QB, Washington
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 205.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.73.
    Projected Round (2019): 6-FA.

    10/18/18: Browning struggled against Auburn and Utah this season. He has completed 66 percent of his passes in 2018 for 1,751 yards with 10 touchdowns and sixinterceptions.

    8/28/18: Browning completed 69 percent of his passes in 2017 for 2,544 yards with 18 touchdowns and five interceptions. He is a good college quarterback, but he doesn'thave a pro skill set. In 2016, Browning turned in a strong sophomore season to help push Washington into the college football playoff. He completed 62 percentof his passes on the year for 3,430 yards with 43 touchdowns and nine interceptions. As a freshman in 2015, he completed 63 percent of his passes for 2,995yards with 16 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Browning had shoulder surgery after the 2016 season.


  21. Trace McSorley, QB, Penn State
    Height: 6-0. Weight: 195.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.82.
    Projected Round (2019): 7-FA.

    10/18/18: On the year, McSorley has completed 54 percent of his passes for 1,241 yards with 11 touchdowns and two interceptions. He has six rushing touchdowns.

    8/28/18: McSorley can dangerously burn defenses downfield as an aggressive quarterback who throws vertically. Over the past two seasons, he benefited from SaquonBarkley leading the offense, but McSorley also made a ton of clutch throws to help Penn State win a lot of games. In 2017, he completed 65 percent of his passesfor 3,228 yards with 26 touchdowns and eight interceptions. He completed 58 percent of his passes for 3,614 yards with 29 touchdowns and eight interceptions in2016.




  22. Brett Rypien, QB, Boise State
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 200.

    Projected Round (2019): 7-FA.

    10/18/18: Rypien has completed 67 percent passes in 2018 for 1,858 yards with 14 touchdowns and five interceptions.

    8/28/18: In 2017, Rypien completed 63 percent of his passes for 2,877 yards with 16 touchdowns and six interceptions. He has more of a backup's skill set for the NFL.In 2016, Rypien completed 62 percent of his passes for 3,646 yards with 24 touchdowns and eight interceptions. He completed 64 precent of his passes for 3,353yards with 20 touchdowns and eight interceptions as a freshman.


  23. Tanner Mangum, QB, BYU
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 215.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.74.
    Projected Round (2019): FA.

    10/18/18: This year, Mangum has completed 62 percent of his passes for 1,042 yards with five touchdowns and three interceptions. He has been benched by BYU.

    8/28/18: Mangum completed 57 percent of his passes in 2017 for 1,540 yards with eight touchdowns and nine interceptions. He also had some impressive moments during hisfreshman year in 2015 when he came on in relief of Taysom Hill. That season, Mangum completed 60 percent of his passes for 3,377 yards with 23 touchdowns and 10interceptions. He was the backup to Hill again in 2016, going 22-of-33 - 67 percent - for 241 yards with three touchdowns and an interception in limited action.


  24. Brad Mayes, QB, Lehigh
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 220.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.75.
    Projected Round (2019): FA.

    10/18/18: This season, Mayes has completed 56 percent of his passes for 1,058 yards with five touchdowns and nine interceptions.

    8/28/18: Mayes is an under-the-radar prospect, but some team sources have told me that he has a live arm and can really spin it. As a junior, he lit up the PatriotLeague, completing 64 percent of his passes for 3,886 yards with 31 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Mayes is a sleeper prospect to watch in 2018.
