The 2018 NFL Draft features a vast number of quality quarterbacks. Where does Washington State Cougars standout Luke Falk fit in?
The 2018 NFL Draft features four quarterbacks who are viewed as first-round locks: Josh Allen, Sam Darnold, Baker Mayfield, and Josh Rosen. There are two other quarterbacks who could be Round 1 selections in Lamar Jackson and Mason Rudolph.
Due to the undeniable measure of uncertainty surrounding all six quarterbacks, however, general managers are inevitably evaluating their options further down the board.
Earlier this week, With the First Pick profiled a sleeper who’s garnering significant hype: Richmond Spiders quarterback Kyle Lauletta. Lauletta stood out at the Senior Bowl and has since become one of the more coveted Day 2 prospects in this class.
Joining Lauletta in that regard is a power conference quarterback who’s fighting to shed the reputation of a system quarterback: Luke Falk.
Falk was the star quarterback for the Washington State Cougars, which ran an air raid offense. It’s a solid system at the collegiate level, but neither it nor the field generals who run it translate especially well to the NFL.
The question is: What are the strengths and weaknesses that could make or break Luke Falk in the 2018 NFL Draft and at the professional level?
