Former NFL scout thinks Stetson Bennett is a ‘legit pro prospect’

·1 min read

Former NFL scout Jim Nagy thinks that Stetson Bennett is a legitimate NFL draft prospect. Nagy is the executive director of the Reese’s Senior Bowl, which is the most important scrimmage ahead of the NFL draft.

Nagy and the Senior Bowl named Bennett as the player of the week thanks to his massive performance against Oregon.

Stetson Bennett threw for 368 passing yards, two passing touchdowns, and completed 25 of his 31 pass attempts. Bennett additionally had eight rushing yards and scored a nifty rushing touchdown. The senior quarterback helped Georgia score touchdowns on seven straight drives to open the game.

Bennett and the Dawgs converted third downs with ease against Oregon en route to a 49-3 win. Bennett, who does not get much respect as a NFL draft prospect, continues to prove the doubters wrong.

Jim Nagy highlighted one of Bennett’s best throws as a reason why NFL teams should be taking a look at him. Bennett finished Week 1 with the second-highest QBR (97.3) in the country. Bennett is the only player with a top-five QBR to have faced a Power Five opponent.
