New Scouting Reports On Lawrence, Fields & Wilson


Recommended Posts

Honestly I have been totally against drafting a QB but still watched quite a bit of tape on the top QBs. All very talented! I am a big MR supporter. I believe we should just build a defense and running game. After watching tape on Wilson, I feel like we can’t pass him up. I would still want him to sit at least a year but watching him reminds me of Rodgers, R. Wilson, and Mahomes. The game looks easy to him. In his worst game, he still played good!

Wilson’s completion % on balls 20+ yards downfield was far and away the best in recent history.  It was 20% higher than the next closest quarterback.

Any write up for Try Lance?

PROSPECT SUMMARY - TREY LANCE

Trey Lance has aligned in the pistol, the gun, and has shown the ability to run the offense from under center. He plays the position with good athleticism, as evidenced by his ability to get out of the pocket and extend plays with his legs. Even within the pocket, his mobility and footwork seemed to have developed. Because he is a threat to move the chains with his legs, he needs to be accounted for in the zone-read game. As a passer, he seems to be able to generate velocity on his throws, which is critical for playing in the elements. He has also shown some touch and accuracy down the field on his deep throws. He needs to continue to develop the subtle nuances of the position to continue to maximize his natural talent as a passer.

Ideal Role: Eventual NFL starter.

Scheme Fit: A scheme uniquely designed to accentuate his ability as a passer as well as a runner.

Any write up for Try Lance?

Another one from last summer:

 

Background

Currently playing at the FCS Level, Lance wasn’t considered a high recruit coming out of high school in Minnesota, which is part of the reason he’s such an easy player to root for.

Starting all 16 games last season as a redshirt freshman, Lance helped lead NDSU to their typical perfect season, dominating nearly every opponent they faced and winning the National Title to top it all off. Powerful in the designed run game and athletic enough to create off-script, Lance displayed the physical tools of your typical NDSU QB, looking similar at times to names like Brock Jensen, Easton Stick, and Carson Wentz. 

Where Lance was able to differ from those first two, however, was with his pure ability to throw the football. Showing off easy velocity and a beautiful deep ball, his efficient success (0 interceptions thrown all season) was eye-popping, even for an FCS starter. It’s this quality of play that allowed Lance to earn nearly every accolade possible a season ago, putting him squarely on the NFL radar as a result.

Harris went back to the tape and had positive things to say about the NDSU signal-caller, specifically relating to his arm strength.

Positives

 “He throws a beautiful ball,” Harris said. “The ball jumps out of his hands and he demonstrates the ability to accurately throw 5 routes from the far hash. His strong base (also) helps him generate excellent velocity and allows him to fit balls into tight windows.”

Additionally, Harris highlighted Lance’s strong athletic capabilities.

“Trey is a good athlete with very functional upper body strength. He does a terrific job escaping the pocket when necessary. He can extend plays with his legs and needs to be accounted for in the zone-read game.

“(Lance) will be a top-32 pick. You can write that in ink.”

 

 

Negatives

Although the good certainly outweighs the bad with Lance, he isn’t yet a perfect prospect by any means. This specifically revolves around both his ability to take care of his body and his overall accuracy.

“He needs to do a better job protecting himself and (he) takes a lot of clean hits during a game,” Harris voiced after studying the film. “He didn’t slide once in the four games charted and that’s an issue.”

Furthermore, Harris noted that the NDSU passer was “inconsistent on deep balls” and his accuracy would worsen as games went on.  

Reid also shared a few concerns, despite being extremely high on Lance himself.  

“My only fear with (Lance) is that we aren’t going to see the true form with him until he enters the league, because (NDSU) is going to ground and pound. Statistically, he also can’t play better than he played last season.”

 

The high expectations after his miraculous 2019 season seem to be a common worry for Lance, especially given his efficiency numbers didn’t tell the whole story. Crabbs emphasized just that, mentioning: “I watched two games in early May and I thought because he’s so naturally fielded that he kind of played with a looseness to him. So that (no interceptions thing) he had last season seemed like a bit of an anomaly."

Bottom Line

All in all, Lance has things to work on, but the talent, as Harris and the rest of the staff elaborated on, is undeniable. It remains to be seen whether he declares after this upcoming season, but he should be a very high draft pick whenever he does decide to pursue an NFL career.

this board is hilarious....  so many opinions from armchair QBs...  especially from individuals who have literally only watched 1 or 2 games of a prospect...

Honestly no need to get spun out on this.

Just sit back and let the franchise decide what they decide.  We have zero influence

I just find it hilarious how so many people like to throw around all these arguments, acting like they know anything and everything... but hey, you do you

Don't like the Lawrence to Luck comparison. Truthfully think Luck was much better coming out than Lawrence is. Not knocking Lawrence either.

Let's see Fields against an Alabama defense that can be had. I think he can make some plays against them.

I like Wilson, but I saw some report that he's like a spoiled brat. That does turn me off a bit, but not a ton.

Some of these feats are “rare.” In fact, his ability to throw the ball with timing and anticipation is elite. 

I don't follow the prospects much but this regarding Wilson stuck out to me. Having great anticipation and timing can kill defenses. Some QBs look for an open zone or a receiver all by himself and then pulls the trigger. Then there are QBs that can throw into an opening that isn't even there yet. QBs that can anticipate practically carry an offense to an entirely different level. Especially when he can get in sync with his receivers. 

Edited by Norwood all the way!

I’ve only seen Wilson on a highlight reel. He was throwing dimes all over the place, especially on the long balls. That made me question whether we actually have the receivers that can catch those balls. Our receiver seem to drop the simplest balls sometimes much less the kind of passes he was throwing.
