North Carolina (rSO), QB

The last time a highly-touted, number 10-wearing QB came out of North Carolina, well, it didn’t work so great (for Mitch). Could this time be different? There is so much need at the quarterback position this year, a handful of them are coming at a premium, which translates to high draft picks. It is no different for Drake Maye, who undoubtedly will be one of the top three QBs taken, and he should be starting day one in the NFL this upcoming season. His 2022 numbers made you pay attention: 4,321 passing yards, 38 passing TDs, 7 INTs with 698 rushing yards and 7 rushing TDs. His 2023 numbers dipped with 3,608 passing yards, 24 TDs, 9 INTs with 449 rushing yards and 9 rushing TDs. Which quarterback will you get? Doesn’t matter. He will be drafted high and inserted early into a starting NFL offense.

Pluses:

• Size & Frame
• Leadership
• Mobility
• High-Level Arm Strength & Talent
• Accuracy

Concerns:

• Decision Making
• Footwork
• Forces Throws
• Pressure Escapability
