Trey Lance- QB - North Dakota State
Welcome to the rookie profile for Trey Lance. Lance is maybe the most ‘boom or bust’ player at the position in this class. Limited tape is a concern, but the raw talent is there to be seen. Big arm combined with ability to run when the opportunity presents itself.

It’s hard to really have a strong comment about Lance’s college career, as it was so short. However, he was able to show great talent during the 2019 season. Dominating his opposition in that season in the majority of games.
Lance has a great athletic profile for a dual-threat QB, with good height and frame. Has a quick throwing motion, and arm strength to get the ball out of his hands quickly. Has good deep accuracy, able to get the ball to his receivers so they don’t need to break their run. Equally accurate on shorter passes, he is able to easily change his throwing motion to put different speed, touch and placement on passes.
When he starts moving on the ground, he is still able to be accurate and keeps his eyes downfield. With his frame, not scared to stand in the pocket and face pressure, breaking weak sack attempts.
Struggles to get through his reads at times, before he decides to tuck and run. Meaning he misses out on some positive plays on a secondary read. Doesn’t slide when running the ball, which could be an issue for his long-term fantasy outlook as the hits he will take in the NFL will be bigger.
Then there is the lack of playing time, hasn’t played that many games in his career.
Pre Draft Analysis
Expected Draft Capital:
Round 1 or 2.
Raw talent, so may need some time to develop on the sidelines. A team with an aging veteran would be great for him to land on, so he could get on the field soon. So a team like Atlanta could select him, and allow him to develop behind Matt Ryan
Equally, a team like Denver could give him the opportunity to compete and get out on the field to learn with playmakers surrounding him
