The first round of the 2021 NFL Draft will be loaded with quarterback selections. Trevor Lawrence, Zach Wilson, Trey Lance, Justin Fields, and Mac Jones are attracting a ton of attention, but other signal callers will get a chance in the later rounds. Florida’s Kyle Trask might not be a top-five prospect at his position, but will get some looks later on on draft day. He led the country with 43 passing touchdowns in 2020 and ranked second in passing yards with 4,283.
Trask has a prototypical NFL body. He stands 6’5” and weighs in at 240 pounds. His size and arm strength allowed him to pick apart college defenses fairly easily on short passes and down the field. Trask doesn’t boast the same athleticism the players ranked ahead of him have, though. His slow feet and methodical processing could hurt him when facing faster, more skilled defenses.

Mock Draft landing spots
CBS Sports’ Josh Edwards projects Trask landing with the Minnesota Vikings in the third round. Bleacher Reports’s Matt Miller thinks Trask could be a good fit for the New England Patriots.
Fantasy impact: Rookie year
There is an abundance of top-notch prospects at quarterback in this draft and quite a few promising, young signal-callers already looking to make find roles at the pinnacle of football. Trask will likely be a second-string option at best, so don’t expect him to return much fantasy value.
Fantasy impact: Career
Trask will never be a dual-threat option, but he’s shown that he can be extremely productive when handed the keys to an offense for pass-centered offense. The Florida product might not be a stud who starts on a week-to-week basis, but can be in the top half of the league among starters.
