Number Three: Trey Lance
One of the most intriguing options at the quarterback position in the 2021 NFL Draft is North Dakota State signal-caller Trey Lance. Lance, who has only played two full seasons with the Bison, could wind up being a first-round pick just based solely on pure potential.
Lance did a great job of taking advantage of every opportunity he was given, which could help him in the draft this season as there are a large variety of needy teams for a quarterback.
One of those needy teams is the New Orleans Saints. The Saints and Trey Lance seem like a match made in heaven and the lack of recent film (due to their season being canceled because of COVID-19) could allow him to fall to pick number 28.
Several teams could be interested in trading up ahead of the Saints to draft Trey Lance, so the Saints need to be aggressive to get their guy this year.
Lance, in two full seasons at North Dakota State, completed a solid 67 percent of his passes for 2,798 yards and a touchdown to interception ratio of 28 to 0.
Trey Lance is one of very few players who can say they never threw an interception in college and he could be rewarded with a lucrative NFL contract very soon. One thing Lance offers any NFL team is mobility.
Lance has a ton of mobility in the pocket and can scramble to make athletic throws as well as running with the ball to pick up a first down. If Trey Lance is within trading distance for the New Orleans Saints, they should go after the dual-threat signal-caller.
