10. Shane Buechele – SMU

Southern Methodist’s Shane Buechele is tenth on my list.  Buechele began his collegiate career at the University of Texas before transferring to SMU.  As we can see in the clip below, there are flashes of really solid play from Buechele.  The placement of this ball, on the back shoulder of the receiver, is a typical throw from quarterbacks on Sunday.

On the play below, Buechele displays a good ability to throw with anticipation and, once again, places the ball perfectly. The fact that he can put the ball right on the money so quickly out of his stance is what amazes me.

However, I would like to see Buechele improve.  Last season, he ended the year with a 62.7% completion rate.  By comparison, Trevor Lawrence, who many believe had a down year in 2019, ended with a 65.8% completion rate.

Additionally, Buechele threw ten interceptions in the American Athletic Conference in 2019, a number that I’d like to see considerably lower.  When it comes down to it, I’d ultimately like to see Shane Buechele display a more consistent level of play as we approach the 2021 NFL Draft process.
