3 Sleeper QB's in the 2021 Draft

Everyone is talking about Trevor Lawrence, Zach Wilson and Justin Fields but what about the non the first round QB's who don't get enough attention.

1. Sam Ehlinger, Texas

Ehlinger who has a backyard sandlot style of of play is my favorite non-first round QB. Ehlinger may not be the fastest of players. but he's clearly a very powerful runner, Ehlinger leads Power Five QB's with rushing TD's with 33 TD's. Ehlinger has just average arm strength and average accuracy, but he does have the ability to throw a really good deep ball. Ehlinger is one of the coolest QB's under pressure Ehlinger had 12 TD's under pressure the most of any QB in the college football Per PFF. Ehlinger is a true magician with the football just turn on his tape, I probably had the most fun watching Ehlinger's tape of any draft prospect this year.

2. Davis Mills, Stanford

Mills may not be the most fun player to watch, but Mills does exactly what NFL scouts love he's a quick decision maker and he gets the ball out quick. Most late-round QB's don't have quick decision making, Mills average time to throw on non RPO's is 2.39-seconds that is the fourth fastest in the nation. Mills may not be the physically or athletically gifted but he displays amazing traits to run an NFL offense.

3. Kenny Pickett, Pittsburgh

Pickett is a great athlete and competitive runner, who makes some jaw dropping off-script plays. Pickett shows flashes of being a pinpoint passer and shows flashes of great accuracy. Where Pickett fails he doesn't have good decision making, has a decent amount of drops snaps and takes unnecessary sacks. Pickett has the talent to be a exceptional NFL QB, he has the arm talent and arm accuracy he just needs to put it all together to find success in his NFL career.
