2021 NFL QB Draft Rankings


Everyone knows the slam dunk #1 Quarterback in the 2021 draft is Clemson’s signal caller

Trevor Lawrence. The best part about the draft process is seeing how each person views the

top guys at each position, and that could not be truer for Quarterback #2 in this class. Zach

Wilson, Justin Fields, and Trey Lance are all battling to the second Quarterback taken. I am

going to dive into the rankings for the 2021 class breaking down some of the top guys in the

class, along with my favorite late round guys!

1. Trevor Lawrence – Clemson

2. Zach Wilson – BYU

3. Justin Fields – Ohio State

4. Trey Lance – North Dakota State

5. Mac Jones - Alabama

6. Davis Mills – Stanford

7. Kellen Mond – Texas A&M

8. Jamie Newman – Wake Forest

9. Kyle Trask – Florida

10. Sam Ehlinger – Texas

11. Ian Book – Notre Dame

12. Feleipe Franks – Arkansas

13. K.J. Costello – Mississippi State

14. Shane Buechele – SMU

15. Peyton Ramsey – Northwestern


1. Trevor Lawrence – Clemson – 6’6 213 Junior


Lawrence is a can't miss prospect. He checks all the boxes teams look for in a franchise

Quarterback with his Arm strength, athleticism, and his high football IQ. The Clemson

signal caller can extend plays with his feet and make off – script plays that will give

defenses fits. If you were to nitpick his game work through progressions is something

that that needs to be fine-tuned.


PREDICTION – FIRST OVERALL PICK


2. Zach Wilson – BYU – 6’3 209 Junior



Wilson is an elite Quarterback prospect. Wilson can make plays off script, extending plays

with his big-time athletic ability. The BYU signal caller has the ability to throw the ball with

excellent timing and anticipation. Wilson has the one of the most important traits you need

in a Quarterback, he has the moxie and the toughness to make big time plays when the game matters most. Teams will be lining up to get the services of Wilson in the NFL.


PREDICTION – TOP THREE PICK


3. Justin Fields – Ohio State – 6’3 227 Junior


Fields is the type of Quarterback that the NFL is transferring to. Big time arm talent with the

athleticism to change the game with his legs. One of his best attributes is his deep ball, as

was shown in the College Football semifinal game vs Clemson. His accuracy and decisiveness top notch in this class. Fields is best suited for a system that takes advantage of the middle of the field, also his athletic skill set with flourish in a scheme that utilizes play – action.


PREDICTION – TOP FIVE PICK


4. Trey Lance – North Dakota State – 6’4 227 RS Sophomore


Trey Lance is one of the more polarizing players in the 2021 draft class. Lance plays the

position with good athleticism and footwork in the pocket. Touch on his throws and deep

throw accuracy is what scouts love about the Bison Quarterback. The redshirt sophomore

only attempted 288 passes during his time at North Dakota State. Look, Lance is what every

team is looking for athletic Quarterback that can beat you with his arms and legs.


PREDICTION – TOP TEN PICK


5. Mac Jones – Alabama – 6’3 214 Junior


Jones took over the Crimson Tide offense and guided it to the number five scoring offense

and a National Championship. Throwing with anticipation & the ability to go threw his

progression quickly is something that Jones excels at. The area he struggles is when the play breaks down, he does not have the skill set to make a off script play. Jones will need to go to a system that fits his traits, west coast system with quick rhythm – based throws.


PREDICTION – TOP TWELVE PICK


LATE ROUND GUYS


6. Davis Mills – Stanford – 6’4 225 RS Junior

Mills an old – school type prototypical drop back passer, big with a strong arm. The

Stanford signal caller shows good velocity and timing on his throws, especially on short to

intermediate rang throws. The problem that Mills has is his ability to avoid the rush and

scramble to make a play. I like Mills going forward, going to a team that uses play – action

and RPOs to showcase his best attributes.


PREDICTION – 4th – 5th ROUND



10. Sam Ehlinger – Texas 6’1 222 Senior

Ehlinger is not going to one of the Quarterbacks whose going change the fortunes of a NFL

team, but he is a guy I want on my roster every single day. Ehlinger is an ultra – competitive

players who plays with a ton of energy and fire every single snap. His toughness and passion

are contagious to his teammates. His inconsistency with his throwing accuracy and lack of

arm strength is the reason teams will not have him high on their board.


PREDICTION – 5th TO 6th ROUND
