The 2021 NFL Draft battle for QB1 looks to be a three-man race early on

Joe Burrow, Tua Tagovailoa, Justin Herbert, and Jordan Love headlined a talented quarterback class in last year’s class. As we are approaching the start of the new college football season, the battle for the top quarterback in the 2021 NFL Draft class appears to be a three-man race.

Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence, Ohio State’s Justin Fields, and FCS star redshirt sophomore Trey Lance headline a fun class of gunslingers, but the distance between the top three and the rest of the field is a steep chasm. While players like Florida’s Kyle Trask, Cincinnati’s Desmond Ridder, or Georgia transfer Jamie Newman could make a run as a tier-two talent, but these top-three stand out among the rest.

Who will be the first quarterback off the board in the 2021 NFL Draft? Right now it looks like it is the “Tank for Trevor” campaign, but Fields and Lance could give him a run for his money. Hopefully we get a full season of football to watch all three of these guys put on a show this year.

Here we will take a look at the top-three guys in depth in Lawrence, Fields, and Lance as they look to battle it out in 2020 for the crown of QB1.
