Round 7 - Max Duggan

1) Caleb Williams | 6'1 | 220 | QB | USC

2) Drake Maye | 6'4 | 225 | QB | North Carolina

9/2 - South Carolina - Maye had a solid game as a whole. Up until late in the 3rd quarter, he made good decisions with his throws, showing good accuracy. He threw 2 INTs, one of which he threw off of his back leg whilst taking pressure. The other, bounced off of his WR's hands, not his fault. 

3) Quinn  Ewers | 6'2 | 204 | QB | Texas

9/9 - Alabama - Ewers had an impressive outing, pulling off the upset win at 'Bama. He displayed tremendous poise, placed the ball nicely on several throws, whilst not turning it over. He had great pocket presence, didn't take a single sack. He looked every bit of a 1st-round talent today.  

4) J.J. McCarthy | 6'3 | 200 | QB | Michigan

5) Shedeur Sanders | 6'2 | 215 | QB | Colorado

6) Michael Penix | 6'3 | 214 | QB | Washington

7) Bo Nix | 6'3 | 214 | QB | Oregon

9/9 - Texas Tech - Nix really impressed in this matchup. He went 32/44 for 359 yards, 2 TDs. While he did get away with an iffy incomplete pass call which looed like an INT in the end zone, he was otherwise very clean. He spread the ball around quite well, took what the defense gave him, letting his playmakers work. His pocket presence was great, as was his footwork and speed to to evade defenders. 

8) Jordan Travis | 6'1 | 212 | QB | Florida State

9/3 - LSU - Travis had a very good game by all accounts. Aside from one very ill-advised throw on an attempted screen pass that got picked off, he was just about as good as he could be against a vaunted defense. He read said defense well and took what they gave him on outlet passes.  He threw a very good deep ball, connecting on a number of deep passes. He used his legs well to avoid pressure, showed very good pocket presence. 

9) Spencer Rattler | 6'1 | 210 | QB | South Carolina

9/2 - North Carolina - Rattler actually had a decent outing, despite being sacked 9 times. While he did hang onto the ball too long a couple of times, he used his eyes well to scan the filed and go through his progressions. His O-line failed him, giving him no pocket to step up and work within. He showed good arm control, using either zip or smooth arc to place the ball. 

9/16 - Georgia - Rattler was great in the first half, as he made great decisions with the ball and threw with pinpoint accuracy. Once Georgia started to dial up the blitz, he rushed a few throws and couldn't connect much. To his credit, there were some bad, costly drops from some of his targets. Overall, he played very well given the environment. 

10) Riley Leonard | 6'4 | 210 | QB | Duke

9/4 - Clemson - Leonard had a solid game overall, with considerations given to the fact that he faced and beat a very good defense. His accuracy was a bit off at times, but he did make some good throws and displayed great pocket presence. He was vicious with his legs, able to get yards in chunks when breaking the pocket. 

11) Michael Pratt | 6'2 | 210 | QB | Tulane

12) KJ Jefferson | 6'3 | 242 | QB | Arkansas

9/16 - BYU - Jefferson had his moments, but he was held in check for the most part, relied too heavily on his legs. A lack of a rushing attack really impacted his game.

13) D.J. Uiagalelei  | 6'4 | 250 | QB | Oregon State

14) Cameron Ward | 6'2 | 223 | QB | Washington State

9/9 - Wisconsin - Ward had a very solid game. He spread the ball around nicely, took what the defense gave him. He also scrambled well, showing his ability to be dangerous breaking the pocket. 

15) Tyler Van Dyke | 6'3 | 220 | QB | Miami

16) Kyle McCord | 6'3 | 222 | QB | Ohio State

9/2 - Indiana - Looked very hit or miss today, making both good and bad throws. He looks like a player who'll need a lot more time to develop. 

9/23 - Notre Dame - Had a very solid game, managed things well and distributed the ball quite well. He showed poise, stepped up in crucial moments.

17) Cameron Rising | 6'2 | 220 | QB | Utah

18) Jaxson Dart | 6'2 | 220 | QB | Ole Miss

19) Devin Leary | 6'1 | 212 | QB | Kentucky

20) Sam Hartman | 6'1 | 208 | QB | Notre Dame

9/9 - North Carolina State - Hartman lead he's team nicely. He overcame adversity early on and was able to land some big strikes. He didn't overwhelm, good or bad, but proved to be a good game manager. 

9/23 - Ohio State - Was solid, not great. He kept his passes short and managed the game well. Given the defense he faced, he couldn't do too much in terms of making impact plays. 

21) Jayden Daniels | 6'3 | 200 | QB | LSU

9/3 - Florida State - Daniels competed well and made some good throws early on, really flashed using his legs as a runner. Aside from his 1 INT, he typically made good choices with the ball. That said, he did face some accuracy issues.

22) Jeff Sims | 6'4 | 220 | QB | Nebraska

8/31 - Minnesota - Had a poor outing throwing 2 INTs, looked like a run first, pass second type of QB all game. He ran well, but was one dimensional.
