DTR was a 2x All Pac-12 pick for the Bruins. NFL teams are intrigued by his ability to move the pocket and versatility as a runner. He ran 4.56 at the Combine.
The UCLA star is seen as a day 3 selection in the NFL draft, his upside is there, and a team will take him in day 2 or 3 because of that. The Saints value the Relative athletic score chart when it comes to drafting and signing players. DTR is interesting because he is a great athlete and runner but didn’t test well. For comparison, Florida QB Anthony Richardson tested a perfect 10.00 on the RAS.
Dorian Thompson-Robinson is a QB prospect in the 2023 draft class. He scored a 7.71 #RAS out of a possible 10.00. This ranked 210 out of 911 QB from 1987 to 2023. https://t.co/saO4DQePfV pic.twitter.com/CPg5CZr8ZY— Kent Lee Platte (@MathBomb) April 12, 2023
DTR could be a project player for the Saints on Day 3 of the draft. He is great in the pocket and great on the move and escaping pressure. His game is raw so sitting and learning behind Derek Carr and even Taysom Hill could benefit him in his career. A big name to watch for the Saints.
