Best Remaining NFL Draft Prospects For Fantasy


Go To: QB | RB | WR | TE


Best Available QBs

Kyle Trask, Florida

Age: 23

Height/Weight: 6-foot-5, 236 pounds

Trask could be the next signal-caller off the board in Day 2. The 2020 Heisman Trophy finalist has a draft position over/under of 64.5 at DraftKings, which would put him at the end of the second round.

He started all 12 games for the Gators last season and completed 68.9% of his passes for 4,283 yards, a whopping 43 touchdowns and eight interceptions. His stock was helped by the likes of two first-rounders at his disposal: Tight end Kyle Pitts and wideout Kadarius Toney.

Davis Mills, Stanford  

Age: 22

Height/Weight: 6-foot-4, 217 pounds

Comments: Mills also has a draft position over/under of 64.5, meaning sportsbooks project him to go at a similar time as Trask. Mills is an intriguing prospect and appeared in just five games in the 2020 COVID-19 shortened season, completing 66.2% of his passes for 1,508 yards, seven touchdowns and three interceptions.

Kellen Mond, Texas A&M

Age: 21

Height/Weight: 6-foot-3, 211 pounds

Mond has a draft position over/under of 80.5, which means he could hear his name called either late on Day 2 or early on Day 3. He appeared in 10 games during his senior year for the Aggies and completed 63.3% of his passes for 19 touchdowns and three interceptions. He led Texas A&M to a victory in the Orange Bowl over UNC and finished No. 5 in the Associated Press’ poll.

Jamie Newman, Georgia

Age: 23

Height/Weight: 6-foot-3, 234 pounds
