Matt Corral, QB, Ole Misss

Matt Corral is a tantalizing NFL Draft prospect, to say the least. He has many plays that make you bat your eyes in amazement and then a bunch of other plays that leave you scratching your head. He is also in one of the most pass-happy offenses, so his numbers are a bit inflated.

The redshirt sophomore has appeared in games throughout his three-year career at Ole Miss but it wasn’t until this season that he became the full-time starter for the Rebels. Corral has the arm strength and accuracy that will make NFL scouts salivate. He has thrown for 2,995 yards and 27 touchdowns while completing 71% of his throws.

Corral is also able to operate in the pocket and escape when need be. He is second on the team in rushing yards with 470 yards and four rushing touchdowns.

The biggest question mark for Corral is his decision-making. Corral has thrown 14 interceptions this season, including a six-interception performance against Arkansas, and a five-interception game against LSU.

If Corral wants to make the NFL, he has to limit the turnovers. This will be an uphill battle against one of the top-ranked secondaries in the NCAA. Corral will also be without his top two receiving options in Elijah Moore and Kenny Yeboah due to them opting out of the Outback Bowl to prepare for the 2021 NFL Draft.
