Bill Parcells’ QB Rules: Breaking down late round QBs in the 2019 NFL Draft

Last week we evaluated some of the top QBs in the 2019 NFL Draft using Bill Parcells’ QB rules. Today, we’re going to evaluate some of the most popular late round QBs.

The six QBs we evaluated last week were Dwayne Haskins, Kyler Murray, Daniel Jones, Drew Lock, Will Grier and Ryan Finley. Of those six, only one QB checked all seven boxes of Parcells’ criteria. That QB was Ryan Finley. To get a full breakdown of the NFL Draft’s top QBs, follow the link here.

Now we’re going to take a look seven more QBs who are likely to be drafted. Can any of them match Ryan Finley and check all seven boxes?

Before we get started with the evaluations of the late round QBs, let’s review the seven criteria QBs must meet in order to be draftable, according to Bill Parcells.

  1. Be a three-year starter
  2. Be a senior in college
  3. Graduate from college
  4. Start 30 games
  5. Win 23 games
  6. Post a 2:1 TD-to-INT ratio
  7. Compete at least 60% of passes thrown

Now that you’ve had a quick refresher, let’s take a look at how the late round QBs stack up. Keep in mind, when I say late round QBs, I mean QBs who’ll likely go between round three and seven.

Criteria met: 5/7

 

Kyle Shurmur – Vanderbilt

  • Three year starter? – Yes (Three+ years)
  • Senior in college? – Yes
  • Did he graduate? – Yes
  • 30 starts? – Yes (43)
  • Did he win 23 games? – No (19)
  • 2:1 TD-to-INT ratio? – Yes (64:29)
  • 60% completions? – No (57.1%)

Criteria met: 5/7

 

Among these seven late round QBs, only one was able to meet all seven criteria. That QB was Boise State’s Brett Rypien. Rypien joins Ryan Finley as one of two QBs in this draft class who check all the boxes. Rypien is pretty much a lock to be drafted, but I’m not sure I’d be drafting him to be a starting NFL QB, at least not right away.

If I have the choice to draft a QB in this draft class, I’m probably not taking either Ryan Finley or Brett Rypien. However, as I stated in the evaluations of the top QBs, who am I to argue with a Hall of Fame coach and talent evaluator?
