PROSPECT SUMMARY - IAN BOOK
Ian Book leaves the Notre Dame program as one of the most accomplished quarterbacks in school history. He’s the school’s winningest quarterback and is second on the all-time passing list for both yardage and touchdowns. Book’s NFL resume isn’t quite as impressive; as he’s an undersized passer who has thrived on extending plays outside of structure and relied on some dynamic skill players to win 50/50 footballs for him down the field. Trying to forecast Book into an NFL offense is a challenge; as he’s not shown the ability to consistently win and thrive within the structure of an offense. Because of this, he may get a look as a backup quarterback, where his unpredictability can be harnessed in small sample sizes to help keep the opposition guessing. Book’s best case NFL draft forecast feels similar to that of Trace McSorely out of Penn State a few years back; McSorley was a late-round pick and has been serving as QB3 for the Baltimore Ravens.
