2021 NFL Draft Quarterback Rankings

  • What system are they in, and if in a spread does he have to read defenses, work through progressions, make adjustments at the line of scrimmage?
  • Overall build. 6′-2″+, 215lbs.+ are good starting points, but not absolute.
  • Hand size.  If the QB has a small build it is paramount that they have big hands like Russel Wilson. This one has a strong amount of data behind it. If you lack height as a QB, you need big hands.
  • Release point for smaller QB’s. Philip Rivers has a poor release point, but he is tall. Drew Brees is short, but has a perfect release point, needed as he is not tall.
  • Number of starts.
  • Accuracy… this is often different at short, medium, and long passes.
  • Decision making… often linked to number of interceptions, but not always.
  • Can he make all the NFL throws like deep outs?
  • Leadership and maturity.
  • Level of competition and winning big games.
  • Pocket presence, and footwork in the process. Not panicking and escaping to run too often, but ability to be a threat in read-option is a bonus.
  • Wind-up. Called many things, this needs to be efficient and compact. Long, loopy wind-ups for college QB’s get instantly exposed in the NFL.
