Two things are true regarding Justin Herbert and the NFL Draft: he will be one of the first three quarterbacks to be selected and nobody really has a clue which team is going to draft him.
The Bengals are going to take Joe Burrow with the first-overall pick, but after that, where Tua Tagovailoa and Herbert are going to land is somewhat of a toss-up. The Dolphins at No. 5 need a quarterback and so do the Chargers at No. 6. However, Miami may pull a Miami with reports suggesting it could move up in the draft to take an offensive tackle.
The Giants have also been keeping a close eye on Herbert holding the No. 4 overall pick, so, as per usual, there are a lot of moving parts heading into the draft.
Herbert did reveal on ‘The Pat McAfee Show’ on Wednesday which two teams have been in contact with him the most. Unsurprisingly, Miami and Los Angeles are those two teams.
Each and every year the NFL Draft has the aspect of ‘the unknown,’ but this year’s draft is turning into a complete toss-up when it comes to the Top 10 picks or so. Add that to the fact that the draft is taking place virtually and general managers around the league don’t seem to have a clue how to use the technology, it should be quite the spectacle.
The 6-foot-6 quarterback enters the draft fresh off of a senior season in which he threw for 3,471 yards, 32 touchdowns, and just six interceptions.
