4 College QBs Who Could Be Drafted In The First Round Of The 2019 NFL Draft

The 2019 NFL Draft will have some solid talent from the quarterback position and after five quarterbacks were selected in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft, how many will be drafted in round one this upcoming year? Will Shea Patterson live up to the hype in his first year with the Michigan Wolverines? Can Drew Lock carry Missouri's offense enough to prove to NFL scouts that he deserves to be a top pick? Here are four quarterbacks who could be selected in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft.

1) Justin Herbert, QB, Oregon

Herbert was the first true freshman QB to start for Oregon since 1983 will be a junior this upcoming season. He has the size, arm talent, and athleticism to be a quarterback selected in the first round of the NFL Draft. He is sneaky fast with his legs and is accurate passing the football on the run. He could stay at Oregon for his senior, but if he has a great year look for him to declare for the NFL Draft.

2) Drew Lock, QB, Missouri

Drew Lock is considered the best pro-prospect quarterback in college football after a terrific junior season in which he threw for 3,964 yards with 44 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. Some thought he would've been a first-round pick if he entered the 2018 draft, and his big-time arm and leadership are why he will likely be a top 10 draft pick in 2019.

3) Shea Patterson, QB, Michigan

Patterson is eligible this year and that's huge for his draft stock. He could be higher than this if he shows the dual-threat ability and accuracy that made him a coveted recruit. Jim Harbaugh should be great for his development, but he needs to improve his consistency. 

4) Jarrett Stidham, QB, Auburn

Stidham has upside thanks to his arm talent and athleticism, but he has to be better in key games. He'll be asked to do more this year and if he thrives, he could be in the mix for the Heisman and #1 overall pick.
