Washington Redskins: 5 prospects to draft after Senior Bowl week
By Ian Cummings
No. 1 – QB Kyle Lauletta – Richmond
Guys, I can’t stress this enough.
Kyle Lauletta is the real deal.
He wasn’t the only quarterback who played well today in the Senior Bowl. Josh Allen had a very impressive third quarter. Mike White, whom the Redskins met with earlier in the week, had a beautiful, crisp touchdown pass to start out the day. Others shined. But Lauletta shined the brightest.
All week, Lauletta impressed scouts with his intangibles, fundamentals, and overall grasp of the game, and earlier today in the real contest, he showed that he could implement those traits in live action. In the third and fourth quarters, he extinguished an attempted comeback by the North squad, completing 8 of 12 passes for 198 yards and 3 touchdowns.
He was almost perfect, showing an incredible combination of zing and touch on his tosses. He made all the throws. Slants, outs, fades, go routes. His footwork was superb, and his pocket movement was relaxed and very smooth. He was rather appropriately named MVP of the Senior Bowl, and it’s easy to see why. Lauletta showed that he can play, and maybe now, his name will start to latch on.

Last year, the standout quarterback in the Senior Bowl was Carson Wentz. The year before, it was Dak Prescott. This trend appears to be on the verge of continuing with Kyle Lauletta, and this time, the Washington Redskins need to be the NFC East team on the winning end.
