About Ryan Finley
Ryan Finley isn’t the type of player that jumps out based on a cannon arm or incredible running ability, but he’s one of the smartest quarterbacks in the 2019 draft. While he might not be the dynamic, franchise-direction changing quarterback that some teams may want or need, he is seen as the most NFL ready quarterback in the draft. This is because he makes good decisions, rarely turns the ball over and is largely risk averse with his throws. A team that’s looking for consistent production and someone who can manage a game may spring for Finley early, with hopes he can develop into the dynamic leader some scouts may think is above his ceiling.
