Notre Dame QB DeShone Kizer Declares For NFL Draft

Notre Dame Fighting Irish QB DeShone Kizer is just a redshirt sophomore, but he's decided to take his talents to the NFL. Kizer announced his decision to turn pro on Monday.

Kizer is a potential first round pick and might go early in the first. It's a down QB class and Kizer is among the best prospects this year. He's still raw, but has the tools NFL teams look for in a QB. Chat Sports' most recent mock draft had him going No. 4 overall to the Chicago Bears. 

In the past two years, Kizer has completed 60.7 percent of his passes for 5,805 yards, 47 TDs and 19 INTs. He improved his TD-INT ratio this year, but his completion percentage dropped. He also has some mobility, picking up 997 yards and 18 TDs the last two years. 

With Malik Zaire likely transferring, the decision for Kizer to turn pro leaves Notre Dame thin at QB. Brandon Wimbush was a highly touted recruit, but has little experience. There's a lack of depth behind him as well.
