Daniel Jeremiah: UNC's Drake Maye Comparable to Carson Palmer Ahead of 2024 NFL Draft

There may not be another player who improved their NFL draft stock last season more than North Carolina quarterback Drake Maye.

A relative unknown going into his first year as a starter, the former five-star prospect shone bright in 2022, throwing for 4,321 yards and 38 touchdowns, both top-five marks in FBS. He also rushed for 698 yards.

And now, he's viewed as one of the top signal callers in next year's draft class along with USC's Caleb Williams, the reigning Heisman Trophy winner. NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah sees a bright future for the 20-year-old star, drawing comparisons to former All-Pro Carson Palmer.
