To most people, the prototype of what they would think a franchise QB to look like would be a 6’4 230 pound guy, with a strong, accurate arm, and mobile enough to avoid the pass rush. However, all franchise QBs are not built the same or created on a video game. Behind players like Russell Wilson and Drew Brees, the league is learning you don’t have to be built like a linebacker to play the quarterback position. With that said, this year will test the limits of what people feel the physical size of a QB can be.


I would be remised if I the 1st player I mention wasn’t Kyler Murray of Oklahoma. Murray is a super-talented, Heisman Trophy award winning, stud of an athlete that was also chosen in the 1st round of the MLB draft last June. I legitimately say this, that if Murray was 4-5 inches taller and 15 pounds bigger, he’d be the consensus #1 pick in the draft, he may go #1 anyway. However, in the history of the league, no successful NFL QB has ever been under 5’11 (Russell Wilson). At 5’10, can Murray be the 1st?

Regarding the other top QBs in the draft, Dwayne Haskins of Ohio State is considered by most the #1 guy, but he is not considered a sure thing. Drew Lock of Missouri has the best combination of size, arm talent and athleticism, but his decision making is highly questionable. Daniel Jones of Duke is someone with good size and talent, but when you watch him, there is just something missing. However, he does appear to be the type that teams like to take late 1st or early 2nd to mold into their starter in 1-2 years.

One other QB I would like to mention is Will Grier of West Virginia. Since the end of the season, his stock has seemingly dropped from bottom 1st round to a 3rd or 4th round. Some of the knocks include only being 6’1 and average arm strength. Some of the things he does do well is being coachable, hardly ever turning the ball over, and most importantly, doing whatever it takes to win. If he falls to the 3rd or 4th round, I think someone is going to get a big-time steal. Has a little Russell Wilson in him.
