Walter Football has been looking at the 2019 Draft class as a way of gauging the future position of teams in next year’s NFL Power Rankings. The role of Walter Football is to look at every aspect of the NFL and College game in a bid to provide the most up to date information on the state of teams in both of the leading versions of the game of football.
One of the areas affecting the state of any individual team in the NFL and College game the most is the leadership shown by its current quarterback. The “Holy Grail” for teams in the NFL is to find a franchise standard quarterback capable of leading a team to the Playoffs and even further to the Super Bowl. As every draft class moves forward, teams begin to explore the pros and cons of individual players who could push a team forward. One of the top quarterback prospects expected to enter the draft in 2019 is Missouri’s Drew Lock, a player who broke SEC records for the most touchdown passes in a single season with 44.
As the 2018 season moves forward, teams from across the NFL send scouts to each college team to assess potential draft picks for their suitability for the National Football League. The process of preparing for the 2019 Draft has already begun with teams already passing judgment on Lock and his suitability for the dog-eat-dog world of professional football. After the first in a series of scheduled meetings between scouts and teams comes to a close, the stock of Lock seems to be falling as questions are asked about his personality and leadership skills. A franchise quarterback can make all the difference in a team rising up or falling down the NFL Power Rankings in the coming season.
