Evaluating quarterbacks for the NFL Draft

With over four months to go before the NFL Draft mercifully arrives on April 27th, we’re going to be hearing a ton about this draft class, particularly the quarterbacks. It’s fun now, and the Senior Bowl, combine and individual workouts will be interesting, but at some point we’ll reach information overload.

Perhaps at some point in the process we’ll be able to get beyond the DeShaun Watson hype that is naturally building following his epic performance against Alabama in the National Championship game. Watson is a fantastic prospect, and along with Mitch Trubisky, DeShone Kizer and Patrick Mahomes he leads an interesting if not overwhelming quarterback class for 2017.

The key is separating his college heroics from traits that will lead him to succeed or fail in the NFL. He certainly has the intangibles and was a great college QB, but we all know that’s nowhere near enough. Let’s see how this plays out.
