Draft Projection: Mid-Third Rounder (According to NFL.com)
Trask, a quarterback out of Manvel, Texas, was not a high recruit out of high school. When he
eventually chose to go to the Florida Gators, he became a redshirt freshman right away. He didn’t start actually
playing until his Junior year, after the starting quarterback went down. He helped the team
win eight of his 10 starts, completing 66.9 percent of his passes, throwing for 2,941 yards and 25 touchdowns
against seven interceptions. He garnered Heisman Trophy and Davey O’Brien Award finalist honors as
well as second-team All-SEC honors.

Trask is a tall quarterback with a strong arm and deadly accurate throwing the deep ball. He also
not just a pocket passer. He moves in the pocket and can throw on the run. This skill gives Trask an upper
hand on his stock value because being a versatile quarterback can make it easier to place you in
different NFL systems. Some of Trask’s weakness are that he bounces around in pocket too much, which can
lead to sacks in the NFL. Another big weakness of Trask’s is that he leads some of his receivers into
coverage where they can easily collide with defenders and cause injury or a turnover.
Trask has graded by many as a suitable backup but not a starter yet. If you’re the Eagles looking for a
quarterback in the draft even as a project, Trask would be a perfect fit. The main reason for it being a
smart pick that this past off-season the Philadelphia Eagles hired Brian Johnson as their quarterback
coach, and he was the former Florida Gators offense coordinator.
