Trey Lance (North Dakota State)


  • 6-foot-3
  • 224 pounds

2019 Stats:

  • 66.9 completion percentage, 2,786 yards
  • 28 touchdowns, 0 interceptions
  • 169 carries, 1,100 yards, 14 touchdowns

Viewed by some as the third or fourth-best quarterback prospect heading into the 2021 NFL Draft, Trey Lance is someone who will likely be connected to the Vikings a bunch during the next few months.

Not only did he play his college ball at a school that is less than 300 miles away from U.S. Bank Stadium, but Lance is also from the state of Minnesota. He fits the mold of the modern pro quarterback and sitting him for a season or two behind Cousins could be a tremendous help for him during his adjustment to the speed of the NFL.

Kyle Trask (Florida)


  • 6-foot-5
  • 239 pounds

2020 Stats:

  • 69.7 completion percentage, 4,125 yards
  • 43 touchdowns, 5 interceptions
  • 61 carries, 50 yards, 3 touchdowns

The nation’s current leader in passing yards and touchdowns, Kyle Trask is having himself a monster season for Florida.

As good as he has been this season, Trask could still use some time on the sidelines to improve his mechanics before he takes the field as a starter in the NFL. He isn’t a quarterback who is going to wow anyone with his athleticism, but his abilities to make quick decisions and not stare down his receivers are things that should help him succeed at the pro level.
