The University of Cincinnati hasn’t had a quarterback selected in the NFL Draft since Tony Pike was chosen in the sixth round of the 2010 NFL Draft. Desmond Ridder, the team’s current quarterback, seems to be in a prime position to change that. After a pair of eleven win season the past two years, another solid performance could propel Desmond Ridder into the 2021 NFL Draft discussion.

Ridder is coming off of an injury to his throwing shoulder, which appeared to impact his play the second half of the 2019 season. Ben Bryant, the backup quarterback for the Bearcats, stepped in to take over for Ridder at Memphis. Justin Williams of The Athletic reports that Bryant could challenge Ridder for the starting position. However, he also reports that he believes that Ridder will win the position, as do I.

Assuming that we see college football in 2020, despite the Coronavirus pandemic, then I firmly believe that Desmond Ridder could propel himself into the discussion as a day two NFL Draft pick in 2020.
