Surprise, surprise — Trey Lance goes ahead of Justin Fields for the first time in the offseason mock draft circuit.
The 2021 NFL Draft doesn’t appear to be overly deep at quarterback, at least not until guys emerge from this class, but there are three likely top 10 picks and Trey Lance is one of them.
The redshirt sophomore out of North Dakota State has all of the physical tools to translate to the next level quickly, and his unreal production last season with NDSU (42 total TDs, 0 interceptions) has everyone buzzing.
A first-round talent as a former receiver, Kendrick would bring some CB1 type athleticism and ball skills to a youthful Panthers defense.
As a former receiver, Kendrick is raw in many ways, but the Panthers are all about speed and toughness and he showed a lot of fortitude coming back from mistakes with the Tigers in 2019. The sky is the limit for him.
