Trey Lance Scouting Report | 2021 NFL Draft Prospect | NDSU Quarterback

Trey Lance Train
All Aboard the Trey Lance Train!!! Ryan Fernandez of NFL Draft Diamonds breaks down Lance in this scouting report. Check it out.
  • Trey Lance 
  • School: North Dakota State University 
  • Position: Quarterback
  • Height: 6’4 
  • Weight: 227

2019 Statistics: 66.9% Completion Percentage, 2786 Yards, 28 Touchdowns, 0 Interception

When looking at Trey Lance you first notice his size and it will remind you a lot of Cam Newton. They both run the ball going downhill with a great amount of force. His physical stature is admirable, while he weighs in at 227 pounds and stands at 6’4. Being at that size is extremely helpful while he stands in the pocket to deliver throws.

Lance consistently stands tall and poised in the pocket even when the pressure is coming which is a positive and could be because of his size. On top of Lance being pressured he has a good sense of pocket awareness to flea out of trouble when needed which results in his talented running abilities taking over. Trey Lance isn’t a turnover machine. He likes to play it safe, meaning he won’t force a throw as much as he will hit his running back in the flats or his check down/hot route.

He could be successful at the next level if he has an above-average offensive line and a reliable back that he could count on. A struggle that concerns me is Trey isn’t very accurate as a passer and I don’t know how that will play out at the next level. Even when the receiver is wide open Lance does not seem to consistently place the ball where it needs to be. Those tight throws in closing windows is another concern that I don’t think he will be able to do well consistently.

His passing ability reminds me of his old counterpart Carson Wentz this season as he too has had issues with his accuracy. I could see Trey landing with the Minnesota Vikings where he could back up Kirk Cousins and learn & develop as a passer.

I could also see him having success with the Carolina Panthers where he can learn from a guy like Teddy Bridgewater with a team that could be built for a guy like himself.
