Every team is looking for the next Tom Brady. I’ll give you a hint, there’s no second Tom Brady in this draft… but there may be a first someone else 🙂
We’ve taken a look in another article at QB’s I rate the highest due to their ability to take care of the ball around the field. However, that listing was only covering my top 7 of the most interesting prospects in the draft. I order them based on a draft grade system I’ve put together called the ‘U Rating’.
The U Rating puts a number on how the QB takes care of the ball. There is a direct co-relation between the U Rating and the completion percentage. Statistics that are often mentioned for QB’s during draft like height, weight, arm strength, hand size, don’t really play a big role here… or any role really. These are a nice to have after the player you choose to lead your team already meets the other criteria.
What matters? Their college performance… what they do on the field is calculated into rating below:
The U Rating is not a death sentence, nor is it a gold medal. A player can greatly exceed their college performance by working hard OR can give up once they believe that they ‘made it’ – there’s no predictor for laziness.
So how did the rest of the 2020 QB class do?
