Round Five

Bo Wallace – Quarterback – Ole Miss


Bo Wallace has the size and wits of an NFL quarterback and has improved greatly since last year. He doesn’t carry an elite arm, but he does have the ability to fit the ball into tight windows and does a great job at anticipating where his receivers are going to be. When given time, Wallace has been known to pick apart lesser defenses.

Wallace isn’t the best athlete out there, but he isn’t afraid to tuck the ball and pick up a few yards either.


Wallace has a propensity for staring down receivers which has led to his high interception totals in the past. He will likely stay as a mid-round prospect at best due to his average arm strength.

Ole Miss’ offensive scheme isn’t very complex and it remains to be seen how Wallace would fare in a true NFL system. He completes plenty of short passes and/or screens which boosts his numbers.

Why He Fits:

The Lions have not drafted a quarterback since Matthew Stafford in 2009. Their current backup QB situation is a dumpster fire to put it lightly. They could really use a QB that they can develop through the draft.
