NFL.com: NC State’s Ryan Finley the #5 QB to Watch in 2018

NFL.com analyst Lance Zierlein broke down the Top-11 quarterbacks to watch in college football in 2018, and NC State’s Ryan Finley ranked #5.

5. Ryan Finley, N.C. State

Tall but thin prospect who wins with intelligence over arm talent. Entering his third season as the signal-caller for the Wolfpack, Finley has proven his ability to throw with good ball placement in tight quarters. He does a good job of recognizing lingering coverage underneath and is able to throw his receivers away from the coverage. He also plays with good poise in the face of the blitz. Finley is below average in his release quickness, and his velocity could be a concern at the next level. There are plenty of quarterbacks who succeed with accuracy and intelligence, but pro teams will need to see more consistent production from Finley as a passer this season. (NFL)
