Trey Lance is making his case for the first pick in the 2021 NFL Draft

Trey Lance was a relative unknown last year but the hype train for the North Dakota State quarterback appears to be gathering steam going into the 2020 season and it is not too much of a stretch to believe he could be in the mix to be the number one overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Lance caught the eye with a freshman season that saw him lead the Bison to the FCS National Championship by throwing 28 touchdowns and no interceptions while adding another 14 on the ground.

The disparity in the level of competition between the programs Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence and Ohio State’s Justin Fields face on a weekly basis and those Lance as a possible number one  pick. comes up against in the FCS will lead some to question his status

However, the Bison have recent history of producing a top-five pick at the position, Carson Wentz going second overall in 2016 to the Philadelphia Eagles in a selection few would now question.

Is Lance of the same caliber as Wentz? And does he deserve to be in the conversation to be selected first overall? We answer those questions and look at his strengths and weaknesses in our scouting report.
