Five quarterbacks heard their names called in Round 1 of the 2021 NFL Draft. But there's still plenty of talented signal-callers available as we approach Day 2. Florida Gators quarterback Kyle Trask is arguably the headliner of those tier-two quarterbacks, and it's safe to assume he'll hear his name called sometime on Friday night.

With plenty of QB-needy teams set to pick on Day 2, here are the three most likely destinations for the Florida signal-caller in the NFL Draft.

Kyle Trask Rumors Day 2

3. New Orleans Saints (No. 60)

The New Orleans Saints have been rumored to be interested in Trask throughout the pre-draft process. Some thought they could even take him at No. 28. Even though Jameis Winston and Taysom Hill are on the roster, you have to think Sean Payton would have a hard time passing on Trask if he fell into his lap at No. 60 overall.

2. Washington Football Team (No. 74)

The Washington Football Team can make some noise with Ryan Fitzpatrick at the helm this season. But there's somewhat of a ceiling on how far FitzMagic can take the organization, and at 38 years old he's clearly not the QB of the future. Spending the No. 51 overall pick on developmental prospect like Trask would make a ton of sense, and it's really hard to see Washington passing on him if he's still there at No. 74.

1. Pittsburgh Steelers (No. 55)

The Pittsburgh Steelers opted to draft a James Conner replacement before securing Ben Roethlisberger's heir apparent. It's hard to imagine Pittsburgh coming out of Day 2 without a young QB. The big-bodied Trask has actually drawn a fair amount of comparisons to Roethlisberger throughout the pre-draft process, so he could help this team transition into the post Big Ben era in 2022. He'd be a great pick at No. 55, though Pittsburgh would have to spend the rest of the draft addressing a worrying offensive line.
