The Las Vegas Raiders will probably soon begin working on next year’s crop of quarterbacks after missing out on the best players in this year’s draft class. Although the obvious top prospects haven’t fully surfaced yet, certain quarterbacks are thought to be first-round selections.

Quinn Ewers, a quarterback from Texas, is projected to be selected in the first round, depending on how his 2024 campaign plays out. The Raiders should keep a close eye on him. According to USA TODAY’s 2025 mock draft by Michael Middlehurst-Schwartz, Las Vegas is expected to choose Ewers with the sixth overall choice.

“Locked out of the running for the top quarterbacks in this year’s draft class, Antonio Pierce and Tom Telesco will have to push through this season with Gardner Minshew II and Aidan O’Connell before evaluating their long-term options next spring,” Middlehurst-Schwartz wrote in an April 28 column. “Ewers still lacks consistency as a decision-maker, but there’s no questioning that his outstanding ability to zip passes into tight windows will help him stand apart from his peers in the pre-draft process.”

Ewers is coming off his best season yet where he threw for 22 touchdowns on a 10-win Texas team. He was very hyped coming out of high school but he’s yet to put up huge numbers in college. A big 2024 season would help his draft stock quite a bit as there’s no questioning his talent.

Ewers has yet to light up the stat sheets despite playing with an abundance of talent at Texas. That’s likely why he decided to stay in college for another season. His decision-making leaves a bit to be desired but he’s still only 21 and is oozing with talent.

CBS Sports’ Chris Trapasso raved about the quarterback’s arm talent in his scouting report.

“Ewers was blessed by the Football Gods — and his parents — with a naturally live arm,” Trapasso wrote in a December 7 column. “He’s capable of really cranking the velocity from any arm angle and lower-body base. He exudes arm talent. That’s not to say he has the world’s strongest arm. However, the way he effortlessly flicks the football and it jumps off his hands on, say, a deep out-breaking route from the far hash, is likely the key attribute that led to his No. 1 recruit status a few years ago and the main reason I’m even writing this piece. Ewers has a higher-end NFL arm. There are a select few human beings on Earth with a genuinely impressive arm by NFL standards. Ewers is one of them.”
