This edition of NFL Draft Target Practice focuses on quarterback prospects who could be selected after the first round. With starting quarterback Blake Bortles locked into a three-year deal, the Jaguars may look to draft his long-term backup/potential successor in April.
Here are four quarterback prospects to keep an eye on during draft season:
Height/Weight: 6-2, 201 lbs.
Career Stats: 10,523 passing yards, 93 passing touchdowns and 25 interceptions with a 65.1 completion percentage, four rushing touchdowns
Thoughts: Woodside is going to be a polarizing prospect for a lot of folks. His tape offers a lot of strong qualities but also highlights some issues.
Is he undersized? Yes. Could his deep-ball accuracy be better? Yes. Could he have played for a better program? Sure.
Those are the only holes I see in Woodside's game. He is very consistent with short and intermediate passes, he hits receivers in the hands and sets his playmakers up for yards after the catch. He has very good feet in the pocket and can extend plays with his legs.
To me, Woodside is a smaller, less-polished Derek Carr. I think he is a quarterback who could develop in Nathaniel Hackett's offense and - at worst - be a long-term backup. He is likely to be taken in the fourth or fifth round.
Height/Weight: 6-4, 210 lbs.
Career Stats: 7,955 passing yards, 70 passing touchdowns and 19 interceptions with a 63.1 completion percentage, 10 rushing touchdowns
Thoughts: If you want to have some fun, click on the video below. Ferguson has a Dak Prescott-like quality to his play.
He is nowhere near as muscular (or as athletic) as Prescott, who outweighs him by roughly 25 pounds, but they both share a similar playground football style, which is pretty impressive for men of their size. His ability to make throws on the run is appealing and I think he is one of the tougher quarterbacks in the class.
Ferguson was only a two-year starter at Memphis and had a very special weapon in wide receiver Anthony Miller, who made the quarterback look very good. Ferguson has some rough edges but I think he is definitely a high-upside project at the NFL level.
Similar to Woodside, I expect Ferguson to be selected in the fourth or fifth round.
School: Western Kentucky
Height/Weight: 6-4, 225 lbs.
Career Stats: 11,262 passing yards, 74 passing touchdowns and 31 interceptions with a 61.9 completion percentage, six rushing touchdowns
Thoughts: If you're looking for a logical Chad Henne replacement, White pretty much fits the bill.
He has some accuracy issues in the passing game but can make every throw in the book. He can progress through multiple reads and stands tall in the pocket against pressure, which sometimes leads to sacks.
He fits the look of an NFL quarterback and could eventually become something more than a young backup with the right coaching. He has all the tools.
I expect White to be a Day 3 guy.
Height/Weight: 6-6, 232 lbs.
Career Stats: 8,332 passing yards, 72 passing touchdowns and 31 interceptions with a 60.7 completion percentage
Thoughts: Litton, much like Woodside and Ferguson, will be another polarizing prospect. Most quarterbacks past the top five guys typically are.
Litton is a risk-taker. His decision-making has led to some really poor interceptions. That said, his accuracy isn't as bad as his numbers indicate. He trusts his receivers and will give them opportunities to make plays. He has a confident pocket presence and he likes to take shots downfield.
I expect him to be selected on Day 3 as well.
