Senior Bowl Quarterback Game Performance Rankings

Within the Senior Bowl this year, we saw many quarterbacks see playing time and have the chance to display their talents. As always, some stood out more than others but this was an opportunity to make more of a name for themselves. The National team beat the American team in the Reese’s Senior Bowl this year and after watching it, many came away with rankings of the players. Below are the rankings I have of the quarterbacks based off their game performance in the Senior Bowl.

#6 – Carson Strong (Nevada)

Carson Strong was lost in the shadow of a strong day by the National team and had a somewhat rough day. Strong threw for 67 yards on eleven attempts for a 6.1 yard per attempt average and completed six of his eleven attempts for a 54.5% completion percentage. He did not throw a touchdown on the day and had no yards to show for himself on the ground. Strong was responsible for one fumble that was luckily recovered to stay with his team and he also threw one interception. 

#5 – Malik Willis (Liberty)

In Malik Willis’s limited playtime, not much went well for him from the air, but he did shine when it came to rushing as a quarterback. Willis threw for only 11 yards and completed 50 percent of his passes, as he went two for four on attemptes with only a 2.8 yard average per pass attempt. Willis did lead his team in rushing yards which was 54 yards on four carries and a 13.5 yard average on the ground. He had his longest run go for 27 yards in impressive fashion.  

#4 – Bailey Zappe (Western Kentucky)

In some ways Bailey Zappe had a solid day, but it was mitigated by some other factors. Zappe lead the American team in passing yards, throwing for 103 yards on eight of thirteen attempts, which translates to a solid 7.9 yards per attempt. His completion percentage ended at 61.5 percent and Zappe did not help himself with any rushing yards or attempts. Zappe additionally threw one interception on the day.
