Round Four: Zach Mettenberger, QB, LSU
OK. So I didn’t take a QB until the fourth round. There are plenty of developmental options in the mid to late rounds, and Mettenberger has all the physical tools to be successful at the next level. Mettenberger wouldn’t be asked to start right away, giving him time to learn the pro game. He is the prototypical quarterback prospect and has a cannon for an arm. He stands tall in the pocket and has a very good understanding of the route tree.

Round Four: Bryan Stork, C, Florida State
With Meester retiring last year, center is an obvious need. Stork is a large-bodied prospect that is suited for a zone blocking scheme. He is an effective positional blocker that takes sound angles to improve leverage. He gets into his pass sets quickly after snapping the ball and maintains active hands to keep the defender at bay after delivering his initial punch. He was named the Rimington Award Winner last year, which is given to the nation’s top center. He also has position versatility with the ability to play guard as well.
