Kyle Trask

The New Orleans Saints have the No. 28 pick in the upcoming NFL Draft.

After having Heisman consideration, Kyle Trask may have played himself into being a late first-round pick after several poor performances to end the season. Trask’s Gators were one of the most dynamic teams in college football.

Throwing for 43 touchdowns and 8 interceptions, Trask looked phenomenal in his third collegiate seasons. Trask has three interceptions in his first nine games than five in his last three including a three-interception game against Oklahoma.

At 6-foot-5, Trask can see over lines and has excellent arm strength. Having just 50 yards on 64 carries, Trask is not a rusher, but with Kamara and Thomas as his weapons, he wouldn’t need to be.

With a solid future ahead of him, bringing in Trask and surrounding him with other veteran quarterbacks may be ideal for both his development and the Saints’ chances of making yet another postseason berth.

Either way, Trask proved he can throw the rock at a high level and could land with the Saints late in the first round.
