“Tanking for TREY”? Could Trey Lance be the first overall pick in 2021?

Should NFL teams be Tanking for Trey?

I know there is a Tanking for Trevor, and I am not just putting articles out there on Trey Lance because I am a fan, but one NFL Analyst thinks Trey Lance is neck to neck with Trevor Lawrence.

Yesterday, Mel Kiper Jr. said Trey Lance is a top 15 pick, and now Bucky Brooks is saying he is contending for the 1st overall pick?

Should teams be Tanking for Trey Lance?

NFL Network draft analyst Bucky Brooks told The Athletic’s Bruce Feldman not to be surprised if Lance takes off like Joe Burrow did, competing with Trevor Lawrence for the first overall pick.

“Trey Lance could emerge as a contender for the No. 1 spot due to his combination of athleticism, poise and playmaking ability. He reminds me a lot of Deshaun Watson with his style of play.

He takes good care of the ball. Most important, he wins. With NDSU producing pros at the position, scouts are going to take him seriously as a prospect, and the NFL’s shift towards more athletic playmakers at the position could help him climb the charts. He can carve you up from the pocket or use his legs to create plays on the perimeter.

Lance led the Bison to an undefeated season, and completed 67 percent of his passes.  If he can put up impressive stats, and continue to show his accuracy, he could be a top pick in 2021. The 6030 quarterback does kind of resemble Deshaun Watson, that is a very good comp to him. I think teams are going to fall in love with him. I am going to keep pumping Trey Lance all year because he maybe the next best quarterback to be drafted in the first round since former Bison Carson Wentz.
