Joe Burrow is quite possibly the best QB prospect I’ve seen in all the years I’ve followed the draft. His accuracy and decision-making were outstanding for LSU last season. Tua Tagovailoa from Alabama has a lot of upside, but didn’t always look very good against tougher competition and on top of that, you have to worry about his health. Justin Herbert from Oregon displayed some really impressive talent at times, but looked like just a guy at others. Jacob Eason from Washington has a big arm and a high ceiling, but needs to improve his accuracy. Utah State’s Jordan Love has all the physical tools, but makes poor decisions. We always knew Jalen Hurts was a great athlete from both his time at Alabama and his latest stop at Oklahoma, but watching him on tape, his ability to make reads left something to be desired. He was impressive throwing the ball at the combine, but didn’t have to make any reads there. He’s clearly got the physical tools, does he have the mental ones? Jake Fromm from Georgia earns a 4th-round grade as he’s plenty accurate and has the mental aspect of the position pretty well down pat, but doesn’t have a big arm or very much speed. Anthony Gordon and Cole McDonald from Washington State and Hawaii, respectively, are interesting late-round options.
