Potential QB Prospects Raiders Should Consider in April

Steven Montez, 6-foot-5, 235 pounds, Colorado

Montez is an intriguing prospect with an impressive frame at 6-foot-5 and 235 pounds despite the fact the Senior Bowl did not do him any favors. The former Colorado signal caller under performed with only three out of eight possible completions and one interception. In spite of that, Montez could be there in the third round for the Raiders and would prove to be an alluring project for Gruden. His biggest strengths are his speed, upper body strength, and the ability to avoid the rush due to said speed. Another highlight is his leadership, as The Draft Network points out:

“Is often credited with having off the charts leadership skills and is exemplary of what coaches want at the position. Not voted as a team-captain (2018) was a surprise to many and will be an area that scouts do lots of digging as to why, but multiple staffs at Colorado speak highly of his character and how he carries out his day-to-day preparation.”

Coming from football pedigree thanks to his father, both college and professional, would also score points for Montez on draft day. Though he is a very raw prospect, he would benefit from being Carr’s backup if the team does not opt to sign a free agent veteran quarterback.
