2021 QB Draft Rankings: Week 4



#1)Sam Ehlinger – Texas

  • Previous Rank: #4
  • Trend: +3

Aside from Texas-Texas Tech being an early contender for game of the year, Ehlinger was asked to throw the ball forty times in a comeback win to keep the Longhorns from getting upset. In addition to 262 yards over the air, Ehlinger racked up 5 TDs. This week really showed what Ehlinger can do against adversity, as his command of the Texas passing attack is among the best in the nation. I will say the one aspect of Ehlinger’s game that was a negative for this week was the fact some of his throws were saved by his receivers.

#2) Justin Fields – Ohio State (Bye)

#3) Kyle Trask – Florida

  • Previous Rank: #6
  • Trend: +3

Trask starts his football season in dominating fashion as he slings the ball for 416 yards and six, SIX touchdowns. There was almost nothing bad about Trask’s game against Ole Miss as he showed his improved vision and great accuracy. One very promising takeaway from this game is Trask’s ability to stay composed when the pocket is being pressured.

#4) Kenny Pickett – Pitt

  • Previous Rank: #1
  • Trend: -3

Pickett’s game against Louisville was decent, but with Trask and Ehlinger torching the field with their arms, Pickett’s game is simply not good enough. He did show good pocket maneuverability, as well as his underrated playmaking ability when he breaks the pocket, but for the most part the game was pedestrian: what you’d expect.

#5) Trevor Lawrence – Clemson (Bye)

#6) Charlie Brewer – Baylor

  • Previous Rank: #9
  • Trend: +3

Brewer did not do much in his game. He finished with 15 completions on 23 attempts for 142 passing yards and 1 TD. He was taken out early in the game because of the Baylor lead, but what he did show is what you would expect from him, keeping him in the relatively same spot.

#7) KJ Costello – Mississippi State

  • Previous Rank: #15
  • Trend: +8

Costello absolutely dominated this week with over 600 yards from the air and 5 TDs while leading Mississippi State to a shocking upset over defending champions LSU. Costello is looking like what he was during last season’s preseason that let me place him as my #1 QB from 2019 before he got hurt. It is possible he can get even better, and that prospect should excite everyone.

#8) Tanner Morgan – Minnesota (Bye)

#9) Shane Buechele – SMU

  • Previous Rank: #7
  • Trend: -2

Buechele was taken out early because of SMU’s lead, but managed to put up two TDs before he headed to the bench. While Buechele is a favorite of mine, he simply did not do enough to warrant looking for any level of improvement.

#10) Ian Book – Notre Dame (Bye)

#11) Brock Purdy – Iowa State

  • Previous Rank: #12
  • Trend: +1

#12) D’eriq King – Miami U

  • Previous Rank: #14
  • Trend: +2

#13) Skylar Thompson – Kansas State

  • Previous Rank: #15
  • Trend: +2

#14) Zach Wilson – BYU

  • Previous Rank: #33
  • Trend: +19

#15) Kellen Mond – Texas A&M
