Kyle Trask, University of Florida

When you think about University of Florida quarterback Kyle Trask, you need to look past the underwhelming performance he put up in his 2020 bowl game against Texas A&M. The rest of the season, Trask proved that with the right coaching, he can be an NFL star.

Trask has slowly gotten better over the course of three years in Florida. During his freshman year, he didn’t play but three games the entire season. However, in those three games, he threw for 162 yards and a touchdown with zero interceptions.

That gave Florida enough they needed to put him as their starter during his Sophomore year. In his first year as a starter, he barely missed 3,000 passing yards and 25 touchdowns. He has a 67 percent completion percentage and a 156 passer rating.

All of those went up this year. He threw for 4,283 yards and 43 touchdowns. Honestly, Trask reminds me a lot of who Brees was as a first-year pro. Under the guidance of Sean Payton and their developmental crew, Trask could have a great NFL career.

He has also dropped enough on draft boards to make him available at the Saints draft slot at the end of the first round.
