BBSS: 2024 NFL Draft Eligible QBs and Their Draftscores



Last year we looked at how we might identify the next Brock Purdy, and with him playing in the upcoming Super Bowl, let's see how this draft class fares in regards to this metric.

Methodology

Using the consensus draft rankings over at NFLMockDraftDatabase.com and the situational passing stats from CFBStats.com to get my draftable QB metric to see which QBs available late had college production that correlates to success in the NFL.

Last year our by the stats approach was more down on the prospects of Anthony Richardson than the consensus mock draft community, this year that award goes to Drake Maye.

Players that have seemingly good odds to work out at the next level include Caleb Williams, Jayden Daniels, JJ McCarthy, Bo Nix (if we ignore his stint at Auburn), Michael Penix, and Spencer Rattler.

Players who could provide a Brock Purdy like value later in the draft are Jordan Travis, Sam Hartman, or Devin Leary.

Players who might be good to target in undrafted free agency include Carter Bradley (of the Gus Bradley Bradleys), Tanner Mordecai, Layne Hatcher, Ben Bryant, and Frank Harris.
