Detroit Holmes GM Brad Holmes hopes to get a closer look for the first time at 3 of the best prospective QBs at the draft this year as the practice at the Senior Bowl begins this Tuesday.

Brad Holmes opined that they were each different and offered varied capabilities and substances. He said that the coolest thing about the 3 QBs is that they were up against multiple adversities and overcame them.  

The potential picks for the first round are North Carolina’s Sam Howell, Liberty’s Malik Willis, and record-setter QB Bailey Zappe, of Western Kentucky. The latter is a projected pick for the mid-round.

Sam Howell was secured among the possible top-ten pick at the start of this season. But it has been an erratic year for him as top-skill compatriots shifted to the National Football League.

The most agile of the quarterbacks in the ongoing draft is Malik Willis. But he has been up against lesser opponents at Liberty plus has been inconsistent will interceptions.

Bailey Zappe has set records in single-season for passing touchdowns (62) and yards (5.98). but he has played just FBS season after transferring from Houston Baptist.

On the National Team, the quarterbacks are Kenny Pickett of Pitt, Desmond Ridder of Cincinnati, and Carson Strong of Nevada. The only highest QB prospect not in this week’s Mobile is the University of Mississippi’s Matt Corral.

Brad Holmes Commended The Crop That Was Down Here

Brad Holmes said of the quarterback trio in a brief interaction with Detroit media.  He said that the crop that was down here was great on the American roster. He gave credit to Jim Nagy, the executive director of the Senior Bowl for getting them to the game. He said that they were all very different and brought in different abilities.

Holmes intriguingly disagreed when probed if he considered the QBs underrated this year. he said that each of the 32 teams is on the lookout for something dissimilar and has various ways of evaluating each of the positions. He said that this week should be big for all the quarterbacks in the game.

The American Team’s first practice is scheduled at 3 p.m. on Tuesday.
