9. Brock Purdy – Iowa State

2021 nfl draft quarterbacks
(Kim Klement/USA Today)

Iowa State’s Brock Purdy comes in at nine on the list.  The 2019 Davey O’Brien Award semifinalist is entering his junior season for the Cycles.  Purdy showed good improvement from his freshman season in 2018 to last season.  If he’s able to improve further, we could be talking a lot about Brock Purdy next April.

In the clip below, Purdy throws with anticipation and hits the receiver out of his break along the sideline.  I would like to see the ball come out a bit quicker, but it’s still a very solid effort.

Brock Purdy displays next level abilities as a runner, too. Below, Purdy shows a nice wherewithal to make quick reads and get upfield quickly through narrow running lanes.  Once he’s upfield, Purdy is able to remain upright through contact as he narrowly gets for the touchdown.

I have Brock Purdy listed as ninth on this list, but I do believe that he has the abilities and intangibles to become a starting quarterback at the next level.  If he can put together another high caliber season, and shore up inconsistencies, we could be looking at a second to third round grade on him when all is said and done.
