Rookie Quarterbacks

In-depth fantasy outlooks for all of the top quarterback prospects entering the 2019 NFL Draft. Outlooks include player analysis, college stats, combine metrics, best team fit, fantasy ceiling and floor analysis, player comparisons projected draft round, projected draft team, highlight videos and full-game film.

Brett Rypien – Boise State University

MWC Offensive Player of the Year Brett Rypien (Ay!). The former Boise State quarterback is entering the draft this year a little low on the draft boards right now. I do think there’s some potential for him to be a very good starting quarterback someday in the National Football League. Rypien is the nephew of Super Bowl XXVl MVP Mark Rypien.

Will Grier – West Virginia University

This guy Will Grier may be one of my favorite prospects in this quarterback class. Grier doesn’t have the wowing stats like Murray or Haskins but he does have some pretty impressive stats. Per Pro Football Focus–he completed 35 of his 80 deep ball attempts for 1,299 yards and 20 touchdowns. 2018 was his best year yet–throwing for 3,864 yards while tossing in 37 touchdowns and only eight interceptions. He showed toughness and hard work to put up those kind of numbers this year. I was very impressed by Grier’s performance in his 2018 campaign.

Jordan Ta’amu – University of Mississippi

Ta’amu was Hawaii’s Division II Offensive Player of the Year as a senior in high school, but did not receive any FBS offers. So he decided to go to the junior college ranks–enrolling at New Mexico Military Institute. He threw for 3,014 passing yards while tossing in eventually winning Southwest Junior College Football Conference Player of the Year at New Mexico Military Institute (3,014 passing yards, 32 touchdowns; 328 rushing yards, seven touchdowns). Ta’amu was not expected to start for the Rebels in his first year on campus, but took over the reins of the offense for the final five games (115-of-173, 66.5 completion percentage, 1,682 yards, 11 touchdowns, four interceptions in 11 games played).

Tyree Jackson – State University of New York at Buffalo

The big frame quarterback prospect has to be one of the rookies I’m most excited to see where he lands in this upcoming draft. He’s 6’7, 249 pounds and ran a 4.59 40 yard dash time at the NFL Combine. That time for a player for his size–is truly amazing.

In 2018, he was named MAC Offensive Player of the Year for the Buffalo Bulls. He started 14 games–passing for 3,131 yards , 28 touchdowns and just 12 interceptions. His completion rating dropped to 55.3%–he only completed 225 of his 407 pass attempts. However, he did score seven times on the ground–displaying his dual threat ability. He checks all the boxes for your ideal QB-size, arm strength, and toughness. He’s tall and sturdy with big hands so he can really zip the ball.

Dwayne Haskins – Ohio State University

This man has the look of a future franchise quarterback. Dwayne Haskins looks like he can come in right away and be a Day 1 starter in the National Football League–no question. He’s got great pocket presence with above average arm strength. He finished the 2018 season with 4,831 passing yards while tossing in 50 touchdowns and just eight interceptions.In 2018–he graded out with a 134.4 passer rating per Pro Football Focus.
