2. Kyle Trask, Florida
Kyle Trask’s ascent to being picked by an NFL franchise is nothing short of remarkable.
Until he was a replacement starter in 2019 for the Florida Gators, he wasn’t the starting quarterback even on his high school team. How he made it this far is pretty astounding, but entering the 2020 season as the unquestioned starter for the Gators, Trask took advantage.
He had a plethora of weapons at his disposal with Kyle Pitts, Kadarius Toney, and a number of other big-time playmakers, and Trask threw 43 touchdowns compared to just eight interceptions.
Many were hyping up Trask as a potential first-round sleeper until his lack of mobility outside of the pocket really caught up with him down the stretch of the 2020 season.
Trask is under the 10th percentile at quarterback with his 5.08 in the 40-yard dash, but somewhat surprisingly, his athleticism holds up as pretty above average besides that. He posted solid numbers in the vertical jump (31.5 inches), broad jump (113 inches), and three-cone drill (7.08 seconds).
Is there more than meets the eye with Trask?
He doesn’t have the strongest arm or dynamic speed out of the pocket. He is very competitive and you can’t ignore his production in 2020, but ultimately, it would be odd to see him go in the second round.
The fourth round would be a sweet spot for Trask, but there’s a lot of noise about him possibly going as high as the second round.
That would not be the best value for the Denver Broncos, but again, you never know what teams are going to be thinking at the quarterback position.
