LUKE FALK, Washington State (6-foot-3, 211 pounds)
Projected Round: 3-4
Accuracy has been an issue for Newton in the past and Carolina may elect to find a reserve who can fit the ball into tight coverage. If so, then Luke Falk from Washington State is an excellent choice. Falk doesn’t provide the dynamic playmaking capabilities of Newton but neither does Anderson and he has thrived in the backup role for years.
"Falk completed 67 percent of his passes in 2017 for 3,593 yards with 30 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. Some team sources are intrigued with Falk as they like his pocket-passing potential and accuracy. In speaking with scouts, they say that Falk has an above-average arm. While his accuracy is his best strength, he does have issues seeing coverage and will throw into it. The same sources also label Falk as a thin-framed player who will need to add weight for the NFL. Additionally, Falk lacks escapability and mobility, but sources compared him to Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins."
