Kyle Trask declares for 2021 NFL Draft

The 2021 draft will feature a deep quarterback class. Kyle Trask is the latest name to add into the mix.

Florida Gators quarterback Kyle Trask wrapped up his 2020 season on Wednesday with a 55-20 loss to the Oklahoma Sooners in the Cotton Bowl. It was also the final game of his college career. On Thursday, Trask posted a video to Twitter announcing he is turning pro and entering the 2021 NFL Draft.

Trask put together an impressive final season in Gainesville, completing 68.9 percent of his passes for 4,283 yards with 43 touchdowns and 8 interceptions. He is a finalist for the Heisman Trophy, and while he is a longshot behind DeVonta Smith, Mac Jones, and Trevor Lawrence, it still speaks to the kind of season he put together.

Trask had put together a solid redshirt junior season, throwing for 2,941 yards with 25 touchdowns and 7 interceptions. However, his senior year has propelled him into the conversation of potentially being a mid-to-late first round pick. Trevor Lawrence is all but certain to go No. 1, but it’s somewhat wide open after that. The first round class could include Trask, Justin Fields, Zach Wilson, and Mac Jones.
