UCLA‘s Dorian Thompson-Robinson has left a significant void as both a leader and playmaker for the Bruins. With his continuous improvement throughout his college career and recent work with quarterback guru Jordan Palmer on his mechanics, the big question now is where DTR will land in the NFL Draft.
Despite his undeniable talent, the draft media currently projects DTR as a Day 3 pick, largely due to inconsistency issues during his time at UCLA. Additionally, this year’s draft features a deep quarterback class, which could impact DTR’s draft position. He tested very well at the NFL Combine and Shrine Bowl as well as having a solid pro day in the rain a few weeks ago.
A favorable landing spot for DTR would be a team where he can learn from a starting quarterback with a similar play style. This would allow DTR to develop his skills while gaining valuable experience from established players like Jalen Hurts, Lamar Jackson, or Josh Allen. He’s got a great arm, he just needs some work on his base and accuracy.
