  Draft Scout by Conference

  03/09/23 - QB Kyle McCordJr/2025, Ohio State

  Making the playoff begins with the quarterback. Ohio State has six, including Oregon State transfer Tristan Gebbia, incoming freshman Lincoln Kienholz and preferred walk-ons Mason Maggs and Chad Ray. But the real drama is between McCord and Brown. Is either a future NFL draft pick? Do they have to be? Five quarterbacks who led their schools to the CFP failed to get drafted: Kelly Bryant (Clemson), Jake Browning (Washington), J.T. Barrett (Ohio State), Jake Coker (Alabama) and Blake Sims (Alabama). So it can happen, but not recently. Bryant (2020) was the last to get passed over on draft day. There is a chance Georgia quarterback Stetson Bennett and TCU quarterback Max Duggan go undrafted next month, but most draftniks think they will get picked in the mid-to-lower rounds.

What about McCord and Brown? We just don't know. In McCord's case, we have seen so little of him. In Brown's case, we have seen even less. I still don't understand why Ohio State coach Ryan Day barely played McCord last season, especially in games that had been decided midway through the third quarter. The second-year quarterback attempted just 20 passes, completing 16 for 190 yards and a touchdown. He actually saw more playing time as a freshman, completing 25 of 38 attempts for 416 yards and two TDs. McCord, who came to Columbus as a five-star recruit, has not had much opportunity to shine. Is he a star? A meteor? A black hole? Who knows? What can be said with confidence is McCord/Brown will be challenged to match Stroud's performance as a poised passer who finds receivers better than any quarterback in Ohio State history. - Columbus Dispatch
