1/11/22: Pickett caught fire in 2021, ripping up opponents on a weekly basis and leading Pittsburgh to impressive wins over Clemson, Tennessee and its first ACC Championship. Pickett is an accurate rhythm passer in the short to intermediate part of the field while also having excellent deep-ball accuracy. On top of his arm talent, Pickett is a willing and tough runner. He really helped his draft grade by returning for his senior year.

Pickett completed 67 percent of his passes in 2021 for 4,319 yards, 42 touchdowns and seven interceptions. He had five rushing touchdowns as well. While Pickett generally makes good decisions, there are 2-3 passes per game where Pickett makes poor choices and looks the part of a gun slinger. That issue could be worked on as a pro. Sources say Pickett has small hands, which is why he wears gloves.

While Pickett is not a freak athlete with running ability, like a Lamar Jackson or Cam Newton, Pickett has some functional mobility and toughness as a runner, similar to Joe Burrow. Pickett does not have a cannon for an arm, like a Josh Allen or Matthew Stafford, but he has a capable arm that can make all the throws, similar to Derek Carr. What Pickett has that really stands out is excellent accuracy. He also throws a very catchable ball, processes information quickly, makes good decisions, and is an aggressive passer who challenges defenses at all levels. Some team sources say they would have liked to see Pickett show more anticipation, instincts, and natural feel as a passer.

Sources like the intangibles with Pickett as he is a leader, a hard worker, a good teammate and a competitor. Thus, Pickett has the skill set to be a starter in the NFL. Team sources believe he will be the first quarterback drafted in the 2022 NFL Draft. He could end up being a high first-round pick and go No. 1 overall.

6/24/21: Pickett has been an efficient game manager for Pittsburgh the past two seasons. In 2021, he needs to increase his playmaking and point producing while cutting down on interceptions.

2. North Carolina image Sam Howell*, QB, North Carolina
Height: 6-0. Weight: 220.
Projected 40 Time: 4.9.
Projected Round (2022): 1-3.
View Ranking History

1/11/22: Howell had a mixed final season for North Carolina, but he had lost a lot of his supporting cast to the 2021 NFL Draft. As a junior, Howell completed 63 percent of his passes for 3,056 yards, 24 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

For the NFL, Howell is a poor man's Baker Mayfield. Some team sources from around the league feel Howell belongs on Day 2 of the 2022 NFL Draft, but with the way teams reach on quarterbacks, Howell has a shot at going in Round 1. Howell is a natural passer who some evaluators think could be a quality starter in the NFL.

6/24/21: Howell is a very interesting player. Some NFL advance scouts have him as a third-day prospect in his initial projection, but NFL Network analyst Daniel Jeremiah said Howell reminds him of Baker Mayfield, the No. 1-overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. Thus, Howell could be a bit of a love/hate prospect at this point.

Howell took advantage of his excellent supporting cast in 2020 to light up the scoreboard for the Tar Heels. The sophomore completed 68 percent of his passes for 3,586 yards and seven interceptions. Howell also put together a tremendous 2019 season, throwing 38 touchdowns and only seven interceptions while completing 61 percent of his passes for 3,641 yards. As a passer, Howell has some accuracy and skill, but he has some raw limitations. He will need to stay productive because he is not a big quarterback and size is a consideration for the next level.

3. Liberty image Malik Willis*, QB, Liberty
Height: 6-0. Weight: 218.
Projected 40 Time: 4.5.
Projected Round (2022): 1-3.
View Ranking History

1/11/22: In 2021, Willis completed 61 percent of his passes for 2,857 yards, 27 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. He also had 13 rushing touchdowns and 878 yards on the ground. Willis was doing a good job of avoiding turnovers until mid-October when he had three interceptions per game in back-to-back weeks. He has a good skill set, and that could cause him to rise in the leadup to the 2022 NFL Draft because he should impress in pre-draft workouts.

For the NFL, Willis has a good skill set and talent to work with. His dangerous mobility makes him a threat to make plays off schedule, plus he is hard to sack. He really helps his offensive line with his escapability and is a tough runner. Willis also has a strong arm capable of firing the ball downfield. He also can throw a good deep ball with impressive strength, touch and placement. Team sources say Willis has issues with his height and gets blinded sometimes by the line. They feel Willis is a second-day prospect but could have a team fall in love with his arm and mobility and take him in the first round.

As a passer, Willis needs development with his mechanics. He throws flat footed at times, and his footwork can lead to inconsistency with placement. For his football development, it would make sense to go back to school and get better, but considering the 2022 NFL Draft is weak at quarterback, it could make sense for Willis to come out.

6/24/21: Willis started out his career at Auburn before transferring to Liberty. He broke out in 2020, completing 64 percent of his passes for 2,260 yards, 20 touchdowns and six interceptions. He also ran for 14 touchdowns with 944 yards on the ground. While Willis (6-1, 215) does not have great size, he has a very good skill with arm and running talent.

Height: 6-1. Weight: 198.
Projected 40 Time: 4.75.
Projected Round (2022): 1-3.
View Ranking History

1/11/22: In 2021, Corral completed 68 percent of his passes for 3,349 yards, 20 touchdowns and five interceptions. He had 11 rushing touchdowns and 597 yards on the ground as well. Corral took the risk of playing in Ole Miss' bowl game and suffered a foot injury. Fortunately for Corral, X-rays were negative for a break.

Corral was an accurate passer in 2021, showing off a strong arm, developed field vision, mobility, and toughness as a runner. He did a better job of managing the game in 2021 than in previous seasons, plus showed improved decision-making and ball security. Corral has makeup concerns however, and Corral himself has said he had maturity issues early in his college career, but now is focused and putting in 12-hour days. Some team sources are not high on Corral and feel he is comparable to Case Keenum or Taylor Heinicke.

6/24/21: Corral showed good development under Lane Kiffin in 2020, starting to realize the potential that made him a top recruit. On the year, Corral completed 71 percent of his passes for 3,337 yards, 29 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. The sophomore also ran for 506 yards and four rushing touchdowns. Corral threw interceptions in bunches last season, and cutting down on turnovers will be a point of improvement in 2021. Still, he showed big strides from his 2019 season for Corral, in which he completed 59 percent of his passes for 1,362 yards, six touchdowns and three interceptions. Corral has a really good skill set with arm talent, dangerous running ability, and upside.

1/11/22: Strong completed 70 percent of his passes in 2021 for 4,186 yards, 36 touchdowns and eight interceptions. In speaking to two NFL scouting directors, they each said Strong was a legit early-round prospect, but they did not have him graded as a high first-rounder. They had him on Day 2 of the 2022 NFL Draft. Strong played injured in 2021.

6/24/21: Strong has quality size to him and some arm talent that he put on display over the past two seasons. In 2020, he completed 70 percent of his passes for 2,858 yards, 27 touchdowns and four interceptions. That was a big improvement from 2019, when he completed 63.4 percent of his passes for 2,335 yards, 11 touchdowns and seven interceptions. Strong could be a mid-round prospect who has backup potential for the NFL.

View Ranking History

1/11/22: Ridder led the Bearcats to blowouts over Miami of Ohio and Murray State before having some ugly moments in a back-and-forth game against Indiana. Ridder came back to play well overall in leading Cincinnati to a road win over Notre Dame, but he struggled against and almost gave the game away to a bad Navy team. He also struggled against Alabama. In 2021, Ridder completed 65 percent of his passes for 3,334 yards, 30 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Some team sources like Ridder more than other prospects who will probably go ahead of him, but he is getting a lot of backup grades from evaluators.

6/24/21: Ridder made strides as a passer from his sophomore to junior year while showing improvement in ball security and decision making. He has a quality skill set with some athleticism to move around and not be a statue in the pocket. Some scouts had him as a potential mid-rounder or day-three pick for the 2021 NFL Draft before Ridder decided to go back to the Bearcats. He could rise with a strong senior year.

1/11/22: Purdy helped Iowa State avoid a big upset with a narrow win over Northern Iowa in Week 1, but he struggled against Iowa and was benched in the fourth quarter. Purdy returned to start against UNLV and led a blowout, but he did not impress in the loss to Baylor prior to playing well versus the two Kansas schools. Purdy looks like a third-day pick and backup-caliber player.

6/24/21: Purdy had an ugly start to the 2020 season with a bad game against La.-Lafayette. He missed some deep balls, threw an interception, took a bad sack, and struggled with pressure. His performance against TCU was better, but he struggled against Baylor, throwing three interceptions. Beating Oklahoma in the Big XII Championship could have provided a nice boost for Purdy, but he struggled versus the Sooners, tossing three bad interceptions. He looks like a potential backup in the NFL.

In 2019, Purdy put together a big stat line. He does not have typical NFL size, so he will need to dominate the Big XII and show arm talent as a senior.

"No, he's not a high pick for sure," said one director of college scouting. "He's an excellent decision-maker with accuracy to facilitate everything well, but more of a dink-and-dunk type rather than a big-time playmaker. He does not have an elite trait, is stumpy looking, and doesn't make many off-schedule plays. He can't escape blitz pressure. He's not even fully a mid-rounder yet, but the quarterback position always gets overinflated."

Another area scout was a bit higher on Purdy, "I don't see him as a first-rounder, but I liked the kid when I was watching [Iowa State's] games. He showed anticipation, accuracy and poise. I think he's more of a Day 2 guy."

1/11/22: Glass is a big quarterback with running ability. There was some buzz about him in the scouting community coming into the 2021 season, but Glass did not dominate enough to rise. He'd played well against in all his games this season until a four-interception outing in the loss to Grambling, but Glass ended the year in superb fashion with 19 touchdowns and zero interceptions over his final four outings.

In 2021, Glass completed 63 percent of his passes for 3,568 yards, 36 touchdowns and seven interceptions. He completed 56 percent of his passes in 2020 for 2,421 yards, 20 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

He missed the game against Arkansas with an injury, and Georgia's coaching staff stuck with Stetson Bennett as the starting quarterback after that.

6/24/21: Daniels started out his collegiate career at USC before losing the quarterback job to Kedon Slovis. That prompted Daniels to transfer to Georgia. There are some in the media who have projected him to be a high pick, but multiple team advance scouts had him projected to Day 3 in their initial evaluation.

1/11/22: King was under relentless pass rush from Alabama in Week 1 and did not impress. A week later, Miami barely beat Appalachian State. King then had some struggles in the loss to Michigan State. King was out with a shoulder injury after that and didn't play again in 2021.

6/24/21: King had some moments for the Hurricanes in 2020, but multiple team sources project him as a late-rounder despite some media hype. King is small, but he is a competitor and leader. King started out his collegiate career at Houston before transferring to Miami. He has real speed and running ability, so switching positions to running back or wide receiver could be a consideration for the NFL.

1/11/22: Morgan looks like a third-string backup competitor for the NFL.

6/24/21: Morgan had a tough 2020 opener against Michigan, throwing for 197 yards, one touchdown and an interception. He was sacked five times by the Wolverines. Morgan was better, but not impressive, in the following games. He looks like a potential backup quarterback in the NFL.

Morgan threw the ball well for Minnesota in 2019, using a talented set of receivers to move the ball consistently. Overall, he was pretty accurate and made good decisions, but given his skill set, he may only top out as having backup potential for the NFL.

He also notched four rushing touchdowns and 240 ground yards. Crum broke out for Kent State in 2019, completing just under 70 percent of his passes for 2,622 yards with 20 touchdowns and only two interceptions. His performance earned him a spot on NFL teams' 2020 preseason watch list. Crum needs to add weight and fill out his frame for the next level.

1/11/22: Hatcher and Arkansas State blew out Central Arkansas in Week 1 and lost a close game to Memphis in Week 2. Hatcher had an opportunity to impress against Washington, but he struggled.

6/24/21: Hatcher threw for over 2,000 yards in 2020, notching a nearly 10-to-1 touchdown-to-interception ratio. Arkansas State utilized a quarterback rotation, so Hatcher split reps with Logan Bonner. Hatcher did enough as a redshirt freshman in 2019 to make NFL teams' 2020 preseason watch list. Given his undersized stature and level of competition, Hatcher is going to have to be a dominant performer to end up rising.

1/11/22: Lewis played well for La.-Lafayette, leading them to a conference title, but he faces limitations for the NFL.

6/24/21: Lewis was a dual-threat quarterback over the past few seasons for the Ragin' Cajuns. Lewis needs to show improvement as a pocket passer in 2021 to rise.
