2020 NFL Draft: Quarterback Prospects

What to Watch

So this post will serve as the initial list of Quarterback prospects that I will be watching for the 2020 NFL Draft. Upon initial viewings, this class looks substantially better than its 2019 counterpart. While the Senior class may be lower on top end guys, the Junior class looks tremendous.

The players listed below are posted in no particular order. They are broken down by class. As posted in yesterday’s DFD State of the Union, I will only initially be watching 300 total prospects in the fall. These are the 25 QBs I am watching during the 2019 season.

Steven Montez Colorado Sr 6’4 225
Brian Lewerke Michigan State Sr 6’3 212
Shea Patterson Michigan Sr 6’1 193

If another quarterback jumps out to me in the lead up to the 2019 season (or during), I will replace one on this list. I have an initial production score for each player on this list. As I watch the tape, on each this summer (or fall), the initial rankings will come together.

Throughout the next few weeks, I will be posting each position’s initial rankings.
