Explanation of Player Grading System

The Breakdown

Devlin was one of the top ranked quarterbacks coming out of high school and landed at Penn State. For various reasons, Devlin never really got a shot to be “the” guy at Penn State and decided to transfer to Delaware. He has the physical tools and intangibles you look for in a quarterback, but is he polished enough to make the jump to the NFL? Devlin is looking to follow a similar path to Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, who began his career at Pitt and transferred to Delaware when he was told that he wouldn’t have a legit shot to play until his senior season.
