4. Bryce Petty, Baylor
Petty is the latest Baylor quarterback to put his name in the draft, the first since Robert Griffin III did so in 2012 and wound up being the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year.
At 6-foot-3 and 230 pounds, Petty has NFL size. The past two seasons in Waco, he’s accounted for more than 8,000 passing yards, 61 touchdowns compared to 10 interceptions, plus a steady completion percentage of about 63 percent.
Petty has flashed excellent arm strength, solid accuracy with his throws, but also has a track record of injuries, subpar pocket awareness, and the inevitable question about how a spread-offense quarterback will translate to the NFL.
