Scouting Report

40 time: 4.72

1st-2nd round

Snapshot: A dynamo at quarterback who crossed the country to play for the Rebels, Corral's tough and energetic style should win over scouts and fans. Taking over the full-time starting role as a redshirt sophomore in 2020, Corral collected 29 passing touchdowns under the guidance of new head coach Lane Kiffin. The production turned to wins in 2021 as Corral led Mississippi to double-digit wins for the first time since 2015.

Corral averaged 8.7 yards per completion in 2021 with 20 touchdowns and five interceptions (down from 14 in 2020) while hitting on 67.9 percent of his pass attempts.

The three-year starter starred in a QB-friendly system generally relying on open targets and wide lanes to throw to and through that tighten significantly at the NFL level.

Strengths: Release motion is tight and whip-like, and the ball jumps out of his hand. Able to rifle passes into tough leverage situations and over the middle of the field. Has a natural feel for pressure and can swiftly slide out of danger. Decisions improved from 2020 to 2021, and he has improved with taking measured risks. Smart runner who won't put himself in unnecessary danger, but he'll fight for needed yardage. Plus athlete who can win as a scrambler. Possesses good instincts and reaction quickness.

Weaknesses: Can get too reliant on his legs to make a play and gets tunnel vision too often. Ball placement and control take a dive when he is under pressure. Still learning how to layer his throws over linebackers and deliver with NFL starter touch. Tendency to pull his release late in the motion leads to random misfires. Not a consistent anticipatory passer.

Pro comparison: Zach Wilson, Jets -- Wilson didn't get off to a hot start in New York, but he's an easy stylistic comparison for Corral to follow. The athleticism, arm talent, and play-extension abilities match up. Corral, though, will need to avoid making some of the same rookie mistakes as Wilson as he transitions to the NFL.
