In this year's NFL Draft, the league saw three quarterbacks taken in the first round, two of those being Kyler Murray and Dwayne Haskins. Both are considered to be solid starting quarterbacks in the league, while Daniel Jones is a big question mark in New York.
As every fan knows, once one draft is over, it's onto the next one. There is plenty of quarterback talent in the NCAA, and fans will be watching plenty of college games in order to scout the next generation of NFL quarterbacks.
Here are four collegiate signal callers that project as solid NFL starters at some point in the future.
1. Trevor Lawrence
Football fans are gushing over the Clemson Tigers quarterback, and for good reason. After taking over the reins from Kelly Bryant, Lawrence completed over 65% of his passes for 3,280 yards, 30 touchdowns, and just 4 picks in 15 games. After his 347-yard, 3 touchdown performance CFP National Championship Game, many are calling him an undisputed first overall pick whenever he declares for the NFL Draft. Lawrence has been called a "super elite" prospect, and you best believe QB-needy teams will be trading up for him.
2. Tua Tagovailoa
Tua Tagovailoa is a darling of fans and scouts alike. After stepping up in relief of Jalen Hurts in the 2018 CFP Championship, the southpaw quarterback staged an impressive comeback to defeat Georgia in overtime. Tagovailoa proved he was the real deal this past season, throwing for 3,966 yards and 42 touchdowns on a 69% completion rate. The Tagovailoa hype train will only continue this upcoming season, as NFL teams like the Miami Dolphins are already linked to the Alabama quarterback.
3. Justin Herbert
Oregon's Justin Herbert was originally slated to be the top quarterback in the 2019 class. Despite the big money contract that loomed, Herbert decided to return to school for his senior season. Herbert stands at 6-foot-6, and can throw the ball with laser-like speed and unreal precision (especially in tight windows). Compared to Andrew Luck and Carson Wentz, Herbert can be the answer for a franchise in need for a quarterback of the future. He'll be a top-ten draft pick come next April.
4. Jake Fromm
While Tagovailoa and Herbert are the sexy names in the 2020 class, you can't forget about Georgia's Jake Fromm. He replaced an injured Jacob Eason in his freshman season, and held off five-star recruit Justin Fields this past year. While he hasn't exceeded more than 3,000 passing yards in his first two seasons at Georgia, that can be related to the program's run-heavy offense. Despite the hype surrounding the Alabama and Oregon signal callers, Fromm is arguably the most pro-ready quarterback, and can build up his draft stock in his junior season.
