Stanford senior quarterback Davis Mills won’t use his extra year of eligibility. Instead, Mills announced he’s entering the 2021 NFL draft.

“To everyone who has impacted my time at Stanford – coach [David] Shaw, coach [Tavita] Pritchard, the rest of the coaching staff, strength staff, trainers, and everyone involved within the program – thank you for your belief and investment in me, and for helping to prepare me for the ultimate goal,” Mills wrote.

Mills appeared in 13 games with 11 starts the past two seasons, completing 65.8 percent of his passes for 3,468 yards and 18 touchdowns.

He passed for a school-record 504 yards against Washington State in 2019.

  1. Giving up a Stanford education to be, maybe a late round or a training camp wannabe free agent. I hope my kids would choose to stay in school and get that degree.

    Or do both? I highly doubt he’s not going to get a degree, he’s a senior.

    All NCAA players have been granted an extra year of eligibility.

  3. I didn’t know this player, so I researched him. He was a 5 star recruit. Prototypical size. The surprising part for me was when a major sports company listed him as possibly the 4th QB off the board at the start of the season. The names don’t really start getting juggled until a few weeks before the draft.

    Joe Burrow was listed as a day 3 pick at the start of 2019 college season. Mahomes was listed as the 8th best QB by a major network. It’s a bit early for the experts prognosis.
