The folks at PointsBet.com have installed Stanford quarterback Davis Mills as the favorite, at -125. Next comes Texas A&M quarterback Kellen Mond at +150 and Florida quarterback Kyle Trask at +175.

The long shot of the bunch is Wake Forest quarterback Jamie Newman, at +3300.

Davis is also -110 to be taken in round two.

On Thursday night, six quarterbacks exited the board in 15 picks. Seventeen picks have been made without another one being selected.

  1. Look for the Eagles to take Kyle Trask at 37. They hired his QB coach from college for a reason.

  2. Asa Vikings fan, if they cannot get Mond( they won’t) I’d love to have Newman, he’s legit and flying under the radar.

  3. A lot of great QB’s were drafted after the first round. I don’t see why this year would be any different. The later the guy gets drafted, the fewer opportunities to play. Guys like Kurt Warner and Tom Brady only got their opportunities after the starter got injured, and they were forced onto the field. The smaller the investment the team has in you, the fewer opportunities. If you’re a high first rounder, you sometimes get a few years to show what you have. The later drafted guys might get a quarter or two. Brady White from Memphis looks like a good QB. He might get signed as a free agent, but might ever get on the field. Kurt Warner bounced around and eventually was working in a grocery store when the Rams called him. Only after Trent Green got hurt, did Warner get his chance. If Green didn’t go down, there’s a good chance Warner would have been back stocking shelves in a couple months.
