Draft Profile: Bio
Out of The Benjamin School in West Palm Beach, FL, Jordan Travis initially donned his cleats at Louisville as a 3-star prospect. A quick pivot in strategy saw him transition to Florida State's roster in 2019. Under Coach Mike Norvell's system, Travis demonstrated notable pocket poise and vision. In the 2022 slate, he chalked up 3,214 passing yards with a 24:5 TD:INT ratio, while only taking 15 sacks.

His versatility extends beyond the pocket. Since 2020, Travis has racked up 1,506 yards on the ground, while scoring 21 TDs. His 2021 tape is particularly impressive; exhibiting a 64% completion percentage, he accumulated 3,214 yards through the air, fired 24 TDs, and was sacked 25 times. The accolades? He bagged the second-team All-ACC honors, just trailing behind Drake Maye.

With a 6-foot-1 frame, tipping the scales at 212 lbs, Travis's pro-grade attributes are becoming increasingly evident to those in the scouting community. His on-field progression, combined with the ability to keep those sack numbers in check, and his nod from the ACC, have put Travis firmly on the radar for those Sunday match-ups.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Exceptional ability to improvise, creating plays under pressure with composure and vision. Effective even behind an average offensive line.
  • Combines a cool, calm demeanor with athleticism, displaying both passing and running capabilities outside the pocket.
  • Strong running threat, averaging over 5 yards per carry and consistently finding the end zone on foot. Understands when to use his legs effectively.
  • Stands out with elite throwing mechanics from the waist up, ensuring ball security and promoting a quick, compact release.
  • Highly disciplined footwork that aligns with route depths, allowing for weight transfer, square posture, and an explosive delivery.
  • Flashes of arm excellence, altering speeds and trajectories on the move. Able to keep the ball away from defenders and optimize receiver run-after-catch opportunities.
  • Mentally sharp, consistently demonstrating poise and rapid decision-making. Understands defensive coverages and effectively manipulates safety positions.
  • Dynamically versatile outside the pocket, easily shifting momentum to avoid tacklers and confidently choosing between pass and run options.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Inconsistencies in lower-half mechanics lead to accuracy issues, with balls occasionally sailing and missing open targets at crucial times.
  • Arm strength, while serviceable, isn't elite; struggles with velocity in deep third and past tight coverage, potentially hampering offensive range.
  • Despite his agility, can occasionally become cornered, lacking awareness of backside rushers, leading to sacks or forced throws under pressure.
  • At times, displays a tendency to wait for targets to become clearly open before throwing, raising concerns about his anticipation of breaks and coverages.
  • While confidence in arm talent is commendable, he occasionally ventures into overconfidence, making reckless decisions that compromise ball security and game situations.
Scouting Report: Summary
Jordan Travis exhibits traits reminiscent of seasoned NFL players like Colt McCoy and Case Keenum, demonstrating a promising blend of pocket prowess and quick release. His age, although on the higher side for a rookie, underscores a history of perseverance and adaptability, especially under Coach Norvell.

Travis shines with his hyper-elite mobility. His athleticism and decision-making often outshine any concerns about his arm strength, placing him firmly among top-tier quarterbacks in his draft class.

Entering the 2024 NFL Draft, Travis is positioned as an early-round prospect. Currently viewed as a third-round pick, there's potential for ascent, especially if he continues his upward trajectory in skill and decision-making.

Given his unique skill set and the buzz around him, the upcoming season will play a crucial role in solidifying or potentially elevating his stock for the 2024 NFL Draft.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
