3 Most Likely Teams to Pick Kyle Trask in 2021 NFL Draft
By Max Staley
Kyle Trask is coming off of the most prolific season of his career. The Florida Gators quarterback recorded 4,283 passing yards with 43 touchdowns to 8 interceptions across 12 appearances in 2020. He finished fourth in Heisman voting.
Likely setting his sights on the NFL, here are three of the most likely landing spots for Trask in the 2021 NFL Draft.
3. Miami Dolphins (No. 36)
The Dolphins have Tua Tagovailoa as their QB of the future, but there have been some worrying reports about his standing in the locker room. Picking a guy like Trask in the second round would be a good way for Miami to hedge its bets. Trask could come in right away and be a solid backup option in case Ryan Fitzpatrick bolts in free agency, and it'd be nice to have another developmental QB if Tua's struggles continue. Plus the Dolphins have a ton of draft capital, including two first-round picks, so they can afford to spend one on another QB.
2. Carolina Panthers (No. 39)
Teddy Bridgewater was fine in 2020, but he didn't do enough to secure the job going forward. Trask would be a nice fit with the Carolina Panthers, as he's at his best when getting the ball out quickly, and this offense is loaded with legit playmakers who excel after the catch. And if he hits, getting a viable starting QB on a second-round contract would allow the Panthers to load up the rest of the roster with big-money deals until Trask's rookie contract expires. That's a real recipe for success in today's NFL.
1. Denver Broncos (No. 40)
Similarly, Trask would also be a solid fit on this developing Denver Broncos offense. The skill-position group is filled with some of the best young talent in the league, featuring studs like Courtland Sutton (25), Jerry Jeudy (21) and Noah Fant (23), just to name a few. The 22-year-old Trask could grow alongside this insane collection of talent. Plus, he's a 6-foot-5 pocket passer, and John Elway has always had a tough time passing up on those guys.
