Future Fantasy Quarterbacks come in many shapes and sizes, therefore lets get right into it with Videos too. Here’s the current rankings providing the most potential long term value to an NFL team.
NFL Draft Rankings: QB
At 6-2 and 222 lbs, the QB has the size and attributes to have a good chance as any, and rightly being the potential #1 drafted QB this year. Here is Voch’s take on him:
Mitch is the Top QB, as said based on his overall decision making, accuracy, and ability to learn and grow likely in other NFL systems.
2. Patrick Mahomes II
Mahomes has a very strong arm to begin with. Been compared to Matt Stafford. He keeps plays alive and throws well outside the pocket even deep outside of the pocket.
Patrick is a Firery leader as he directs players, as you gotta love that. Also he steps up into his throws which you have to love also, and lastly great running with awareness, bring him into the top half based on that ability, of the first round.
3. DeShone Kizer
Kizer has a long wind up in his throwing motion of which coaches will try and get him out of. He has a strong arm and nice running ability, along with good pocket presence. Here he is getting evaluated:
I don’t honestly see why is as highly ranked as he is. He showed inaccurate throws, although he has a good touch on deep throws
4. DeShawn Watson
With Watson there is some striking football and athletic characteristics along with experience winning games that is valuable. He throws slant and wheel routes well, and has improved on deep route and footwork displayed at combine and pro days. However, nothing stands out to me.
He can of course improve, but there are too many inconsistencies on film to consider him a for sure 1st rounder in my opinion here.
5. Davis Webb
Here are my initial thoughts on Webb: He had a lot of quick spread plays, witch led to good red zone production for him. He was able to look at both sides of the field in making reads and he was a good play action and screen thrower.
This was a guy that initially I did not realize how big he is. He has a great size to play at the next level and if his decision making improves at the next level he could be one of those sleepers everyone wishes they would have drafted.
6. Brad Kayya
In this report on Kayya, out of the University of Miami, he did not stand out in the combine at all, but in his film he showed accurate intermediate to deep routes, scans the field for checkdowns, and has NFL caliber awareness as he resets for a balanced throw after a scramble, a trait some of the QB’s rated above him here lack.
This is all basically displayed here:
On the negative side with Brad, he has problems displayed with mechanics, as he throws off balance at times, and he cannot really run like the others can at all.
7. Trevor Knight
Trevor Knight has superior athletic ability compared to the others of this draft class for the QB position. It showed up all through the combine. He is a good runner speed at the position. Although he has wild passes, partly due to inexperience, he shows promise as a deep ball thrower and throws good slant routes, with ability to improvise and check down when needed.
Her is on display with all of those notes of mine.
Knight also shows some poise in the pocket, which I like as well for a mid to late round pick up at QB.
8. Josh Dobbs
Dobbs can easily get away from a rush, as he also shows good athletic ability, which is a big reason why I put him up this high compared to others. As seen in this film vs Auburn, inconsistencies are a weakness.
Dobbs is like by Peyton Manning, however, he needs to learn a lot form Peyton when it comes to making reads, as throwing better passes away from traffic, leading to interceptions and missed open receivers. He does posses a strong arm and good running skills as his 3-5 step drop release is good.
9. Nathan Peterman
This will be the the last QB sure to be drafted. Anyone else I am not so sure about, as Peterman showed no real outstanding skills that I notice, other than a strong arm.
As with so many other QB’s coming out of drafts you never know. What you can see is that the mistakes are kept to a minimum and the associated risks needed just need to be accurate to make it at the next level.
