North Dakota State quarterback prospect Trey Lance participated in his school’s Pro Day Friday. He will go through a workout for NFL teams, with numerous top ten draft picks represented in Fargo. We’ll update this with more results as the workout wraps up. You can watch it live on NFL Network, or live stream it here.

We only got to see Lance play a single game in 2020 against Central Arkansas after three other fall games were canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. His last (and only) full season was back in 2019, where he played 16 games for the Bison and helped them reel in the FSC championship.

Lance is an intriguing prospect who boasts big-time upside at the quarterback position, but there are some questions left that he may be able to help answer during his Pro Day. In his sophomore season, Lance posted 2,786 passing yards and 28 TDs without throwing a single interception. He was the ultimate dual-threat quarterback, adding 1,150 yards and 14 TDs on the ground to lead the team 16-0. He is a prime athlete, and it’s difficult not to be reminded of Lamar Jackson when you watch him play considering his speed and ability to force missed tackles.

The downside? Lance has experience than is ideal for an immediate starter. He spent just one season in the role of a starter, and in that season, averaging just under 18 pass attempts per game. It feels like the sky is the limit for Lance, but it also remains to be seen where the floor sits for him as a prospect.

Lance rolled in as the No. 11 overall draft prospect on Daniel Jeremiah’s latest top-50 rankings as the QB3 behind Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence and BYU’s Zach Wilson.
