Houston Texans QB radar, 1st place:
Matt Corral is as of right now the best quarterback this draft class has to offer, with a slight lead over Desmond Ridder. Corral continues to show up in big moments with his legs and his arm.
There is so much to like about Corral starting with the fact that he plays in a pro-style system at Ole Miss making the eventual transition to the NFL slightly easier for Corral. With his ability to run keeping the defense honest Corral can be an extremely successful quarterback at the next level in the right situation.
While throwing for 231 yards on 21-38 passing and 2 touchdowns and one interception, Corral also rushed for 195 yards on 30 carries. The most impressive part of that is being able to time and time again answer the bell with Tennessee not going away quietly. This game went back and forth from start to finish.
Needless to say, Corral continued to impress against the Volunteers after a solid game against Arkansas. Corral needs to continue this high level of play he’s had over the past two games.
Not only will he solidify his position in the top 5 looks for NFL scouts to start taking notice. The talent is obvious, the dual-threat ability is there Corral just needs to gain consistency in his game and his stock will skyrocket.
Pro comparison: Matthew Stafford.
After a crazy week in college football, here are the changes to the list from last week.
- Malik Willis falls from number three to number four. This is based purely on not taking care of the football in two consecutive games.
- Sam Howell stays at number five. Another shaky performance in a year where that’s become normal for Howell. That’s not good.
- Carson jumped from 4 to 3 after a solid performance against Hawaii.
- Desmond Ridder stays at number two following another solid performance in week 7.
- Matt Corral stayed at number one and rightfully so as right now he’s the best QB in this draft class.
Be sure to check back next week to see how the top 5 shakes out following week eighth of college football.
