For those of you who don’t know, Trey Lance is a major prospect. He’s probably the most hyped FCS player in the history of college football.

The hype surrounding him puts Carson Wentz’s hype coming out of NDSU to shame. It’s not even close. There are people who think Lance might actually push Lawrence as the first overall pick.

I don’t buy that at all, but I do think Lance is going to be a damn good quarterback in the NFL. He can make some incredibly impressive throws, is big, mobile and he’s a proven winner.

You want a guy like Lance in the locker room. That much is for sure. Overall, I’d say he’s the third best QB prospect behind Trevor Lawrence and Justin Fields.

We’ll see where he goes in the draft, but I’ll be shocked if he’s not in the top-10.
