GMs rank DeShaun Watson, Mitch Trubisky as top QBs in 2017 NFL Draft

DeShone Kizer got no votes.

The University of North Carolina held its Pro Day on Tuesday, and with its conclusion, Mitchell Trubisky and DeShaun Watson have wrapped up their open performances. Moving forward, they will conduct private workouts and official visits throughout the next month. Notre Dame holds its Pro Day on Thursday, which means DeShone Kizer will be on display, and then head off for his private workouts and official visits.

With two of the three notable Pro Days complete, NFL Network analyst Charley Casserly decided to conduct a survey of NFL general managers. He spoke with 22 GMs and asked them who their top QB was. Watson and Trubisky topped the list, with nine and eight votes, respectively. Here’s the full list of votes.

DeShaun Watson: 9 votes
Mitchell Trubisky: 8 votes
Patrick Mahomes: 2 votes
Undecided: 3 votes

Notably absent is DeShone Kizer. Also, back in February, one anonymous executive said that Davis Webb was the QB he wanted to build around, and thinks he could end up the best QB in this year’s class. And of course, I would not be surprised if one of the GMs did not give a completely honest answer.

Mike Mayock revealed his updated top five position rankings, and he made no changes to the QB position. I say this because his top QB is Kizer, followed by Watson, Trubisky, Mahomes, and Webb. He also does not think any of the QBs is worth a top ten pick, and we don’t know what any of these anonymous GMs think in that regard.
