Jacoby Brissett (6-foot-3, 235 pounds) — North Carolina State

This is my sleeper pick in the draft. Brissett is not well-known, but people will know his name soon.

Brissett has the NFL-body type with incredible athleticism. He can throw from the pocket, or he can move the pocket and run the ball.

One of Brissett’s best attributes is his ability to scramble. He can keep the play alive and throw on the run when he finds the open man.

Brissett started out his career at Florida, but then transferred to North Carolina State, so he had to sit out the 2013 season. He became the starter in 2014 and has played well since.

Brissett enjoys playing in big games. Even though his Wolfpack teams were outmanned, he nearly helped them in upset bids against Florida State in 2014 and Clemson in 2015.

Against the top-rated team in the country, he went 24-of-41 for 254 and three touchdowns while staying in the pocket in the face of a massive pass rush.

For the season, Brissett threw for 2,448 yards and 19 touchdowns, and only four interceptions. For his career, he has 5,509 yards and 45 touchdowns to go against 13 interceptions.

Since he is not as well-known as the other top quarterbacks, Brissett will need to use the offseason camps and All Star games (like the Senior Bowl) to bring attention upon himself. If he does well there, and does well in the NFL Combine in Indianapolis, he will be one of the top quarterbacks chosen in the draft.
