Top 2021 QB Prospects (Pre-Season)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Teddy Bridgewater's short contract length means the Panthers will probably look to upgrade the QB position in the future.  With 2 years left on his contract after the 2020 season and a potential out after 2021 it would be wise to get an insurance policy in the system or at the very least, an upgrade at QB2.  I'm going to post this early to see how this changes after next year plays out.  So, here are the QBs currently being talked about as 1st rounders:

1. Trevor Lawrence, Clemson: Top QB prospect since his dismantling of Alabama in the Natty.  Hard not to like what he brings to the table either.  Talent around him makes his evaluation harder to feel truly comfortable with.  Here's a couple tape breakdowns from last year...

2. Justin Fields, Ohio State:  Fields currently looks like the only one who can dislodge Lawrence from the top spot.  Another prospect that is hard not to like but also another prospect that is a little harder to feel truly comfortable with your projection because of the scheme/talent around him.  Here's some info on him...

3. Trey Lance, North Dakota State:  There will be questions about competition (first game against Oregon will be important) and he does have 2 years of eligibility left so he could easily go back, especially with the 2 QBs ahead of him.  Though, I've also seen him rated above Fields by a couple analysts already too because they are such similar players and he is faster and has a stronger arm.

4. Jamie Newman, Georgia:  I watch a good bit of him last year thinking he might come out but came away more impressed by his receivers (have another thread on him on this board).  Still he has 1st round buzz because he is a duel threat who can push the ball down field, can buy time, has good size/arm and doesn't freak out with pressure.  He's got another year to get more reps against a step up in competition to improve his stock.

5. Brock Purdy, Iowa State:  He has athleticism and a high football IQ that gives him a shot at Round 1 but he has poor arm strength and his consistency will need to improve.  Could see teams taking a pause because of his height as well.

I have seen Brock Purdy from Iowa State and Tanner Morgan from Minnesota tossed around as possible first rounders next year as well.

I was going to start a thread in the main forum about this 2021 QB class.  I'm wondering if the could be an ultra-rare 5 QBs or the rarest of rare 6 QBs taken in the 1st round?

One draft site has 9 QBs slated (by rank) to be taken in the first 3 rounds.  That is NUTS!  We know there is always someone that has a bust-out final season that rockets up the charts and another one or two that impress in the offseason workouts which drives up their stock.

The 2020 QB class was overall weak.  In the preseason (like now) it was the Herbert and Tua show.  That was about it.  As we know Burrow broke-out and Love (who was initially a 3rd round prospect) crept into the back of round 1.  So in a seemingly weak QB class, four QBs went in round 1, could 5 or 6 go in this next draft where the QB class is loaded?
