North Dakota State
Trey Lance threw for two touchdowns, ran for two more and three-time FCS defending champion North Dakota State rallied with a 21-point fourth quarter to beat Central Arkansas 39-28 on Saturday. The Bison's lone fall game was a de facto audition for Lance, judged to be a potential first-round pick if the redshirt sophomore declares for the NFL Draft. As last season's Walter Payton Award winner, he threw for 28 touchdowns with no interceptions in 287 attempts but that run ended Saturday when he was picked by Nick Nakawaasah in the third quarter, which led to Breylin Smith's TD toss to Lujuan Winningham and a 20-18 Bears lead. In the fourth quarter, Lance ran for a score and, after Smith and Winningham connected for another TD, threw to Hunter Luepke for a 32-28 lead. North Dakota State/AP College Football
Other Considerations If Available:
USC IOL Alijah Vera-Tucker or Texas OT Samuel Cosmi or Rondale Moore or Rashod Bateman
The Washington Football Team found their way into the playoffs in 2020, and they will need to improve on offense if they want to improve their chances of returning to the playoffs in 2021. The Football Team needs a QB, and Alex Smith might be the answer for another season, but drafting a QB in 2021 or grabbing one via free agency might be the better way to go. They can also use help on their offensive line and at WR. If a player like NDSU QB Trey Lance or Alabama QB Mac Jones is available in this spot, they might jump on the opportunity; if not, they have options at WR and the potential to get an OT with a first round one grade.
