There is anything but a consensus about the best quarterback prospect in the 2017 NFL Draft, but based on the results of Charley Casserly's survey, it could be a two-horse race.
The NFL Network analyst and former NFL GM polled personnel from 22 NFL clubs on the subject, and a vast majority selected either Clemson's Deshaun Watson (nine votes), or North Carolina's Mitchell Trubisky (eight votes). Two favored Texas Tech's Patrick Mahomes, while three more were undecided. Conspicuously absent from the results: Notre Dame QB DeShone Kizer.
"My feeling, when I watch the tape, Trubisky is the most consistent quarterback of all these guys in accuracy and decision-making, but he also has some inconsistencies," Casserly said Tuesday on Path To The Draft. "(He's) excellent outside the pocket, moving around and keeping his eyes downfield. Leadership, that's going to be the big question on him, and (that he has) only 13 starts in his college career."
