Report: Washington won’t have anyone at Trey Lance’s Pro Day

The Washington Football Team had people on hand for former North Dakota State quarterback Trey Lance‘s first Pro Day and it appears that was enough of a look at him.

John Keim of ESPN.com reportz that the team will not be represented at Lance’s second Pro Day workout on Monday. Albert Breer of SI.com reported the same and adds that the Bears and the Panthers are expected to sit the session out as well.

Lance only played one game in 2020 and spent one season as a college starter, so there’s much less of a book on him than there is on other quarterbacks. Washington General Manager Martin Mayhew discussed his feelings about quarterbacks with small sample sizes in a press conference last week.

“Anytime you see guys with limited time on the job, that is a concern for me with the quarterback position,” Mayhew said, via Nicki Jhabvala of the Washington Post.

Other things could minimize that concern once it comes time to make a selection, but it will likely take a big move up the draft board for Washington to get Lance and little Mayhew said last week suggests that is in the cards.

  1. They’ve already visited with him. This is an additional session that he agreed to.

    Not every team will be there. Nothing to see here.

    Good – Offensive line at @ 19 has to be the move!

    How is it good not to be prepared? No one says that if you go scout him you have to take him but when your team is in desperate need of a franchise qb then you should be turning over every stone and making sure you haven’t missed anything, you never know if he(or someone else) drops to you and the last thing you should want to be is I’ll prepared.

  3. Sounds good…WFT needs are OL and some more OL. Keep Danny out of the selecting,

  5. I actually didn’t think Washington would make a move for Lance until now. First, Mayhew conspicuously states the team has no interest in a quarterback with a limited playing time and now this obvious smokescreen.. Lombardi is right — Washington loves Lance. Look for Carolina to trade their pick to Marty and Rivera and WFT to draft Lance.

  6. They’ve already done their research on Lance. One more pro day isn’t going to move the needle much one way or the other. Besides if they are really interested, why telegraph that? In that case they’ll lay back and hope other teams don’t grab him.
