Notable Headlines

Travis was a 3-star recruit coming out of high school, opting for Louisville. In his 2018 season, he struggled to get out on the field, which led him to transfer to Florida State. After getting mixed usage, he took the starting job ultimately in 2022, where he threw for 3,214 yards with 24 TDs and just 5 INTs. His 2023 season was ended with a fractured fibula, but he still managed to get 2,756 yards for 20 TDs and 2 INTs.

Has scored 7 TDs on the ground in each of his last four seasons, and that is where his dual-threat ability really shines through.

Scouting Report

Positives

Good dual-threat, which enables him the ability to keep the play going if it breaks down. Strong runner, and can use his size well to make defenders miss. Has the ability to find the endzone too if the edge defenders aren’t disciplined enough. Has good footwork, which can help him get the ball out quickly. It also helps him make deeper throws effectively, as although he has good arm talent, it isn’t elite. Can make good, quick decisions on defensive coverages, and can make the secondary move to open space up.

Negatives

Can struggle to get his feet right, with can lead to inaccurate ball placement. Can also sometimes get ‘stuck’ by an effective pass rush, and at times forces a throw that isn’t on (or gets sacked). Travis can also struggle to see receivers that are ‘NFL-free’ and can wait too long for his receivers to get more separation from defenders.

Pre Draft Analysis

Expected Draft Capital- 4th Round

Ideal Landing Spot

With his running ability, a scheme that allows their QB to run free and RPO/ quick read offenses would be best. Would be a decent fit for a team like the Eagles, or Arizona, as he plays a similar style to Hurts/ Murray.
