With the college football season currently underway which we cover on https://UltrasBet.com/, we will take a look at some of the most exciting prospects for the 2021 NFL Draft:
- Of course, we have to start with Trevor Lawrence. He is a one in a generation type of quarterback and he is being compared to Andrew Luck and Peyton Manning. There is a lot of pressure on this kid but he has proven himself in his first two years in college- 66% completed passes, averaging 3400 passing yards with 33 touchdowns and just 6 interceptions in 2018 and 2019. Even though his stats dropped down a bit in 2019 and he did not have the receiving core of 2018, he was still able to take Clemson to the NCAA Championship game. His most memorable moment was when he destroyed Alabama in 2018. This man’s got it all- early release, deep ball, short routes, pocket passing, outside pocket passing, movement, everything.
- Justin Fields- The second-best quarterback in college. He did not play a whole lot in 2018 because he was a backup to Dwayne Haskins but in 2019, he impressed everybody. He went on to throw for 3273 yards, 41 touchdowns, and just 3 interceptions. Now, I know that Ohio State QBs will always have a higher draft stock because of the way the team plays on offense, but this kid does not seem a bust like his predecessors- Haskins, Cardale Jones, and J.T. Barrett. He is very agile and he can move well enough in the pocket to avoid sacks and extend plays. His passing was exceptional in 2019 and if he continues like this in 2020, there is a chance he might be a top 3 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
- Penei Sewell- The Oregon offensive tackle has been tremendous over the past two seasons. He is very big and at the same time, mobile. Sewell has given up just one sack in his 20 games that he played for Oregon. He does not seem to be intimated easily and his game is on an NFL-level. He does not make any penalties and plays a very disciplined game. I see him as the second pick of the draft, being taken by a GM who does not like to take risks.
- Patrick Surtain II- Surtain is a true cornerback. He can play man-to-man, zone- whatever you ask of him. He is a shutdown corner who will most probably be the best defensive prospect when the 2021 NFL Draft comes. He is a very intelligent player who easily predicts routes and can prevent big plays. His coverage is on another level if we compare it to the other players in the NCAA. I love his instincts and I do not see many holes in his game.
- Ja’Marr Chase- Now, I know it is too early to predict on wide receivers as I’m sure that more names will pop up throughout the season but Chase set all sorts of records for LSU last year. He was the SEC leader in yards received(1780) and touchdowns scored(20). He benefited a lot from Joe Burrow’s outstanding passes and it will be interesting to see him play without him. He is explosive and he runes routes like a pro. Definitely, a top 10 prospect who, in my opinion, can prove himself to be the best wide received in NCAA this season.
