With the 2021 college football season fast approaching the race is on to find the next Joe Burrow. The next Zach Wilson. The next “quarterback riser” to come from virtually nowhere and shock the football world as they rise to the top of the draft board.

Allow me to nominate Boston College quarterback Phil Jurkovec.

The Notre Dame transfer took over as the starting quarterback for the Eagles and flashed some NFL traits in his first year as a starter. In ten games Jurkovec completed 61% of his passes for 2,558 yards and 17 touchdowns against just five interceptions, but beyond the numbers are the traits he showed on film. We’ll dive into those in this video examining plays against Pittsburgh and Clemson:

Now, it might not be time to go “all in” on Jurkovec as that QB riser, especially with other talented quarterbacks in this class such as Malik Willis, Carson Strong and more. But on that betting board it might be wise to at least put a chip or two on that maroon “5” on the board. Jurkovec’s pocket management and competitive toughness are two traits that will serve him well next year…and beyond.
