Trey Lance is set to go from unknown to face of an NFL franchise in 2021.

Trey Lance was not a name many NFL fans were familiar with last year but is on track to be the face of a franchise next year after a spectacular 2019.

His first season as the starting quarterback for North Dakota State saw him throw 28 touchdowns with no interceptions while adding 1,110 yards and 14 scores on the ground in leading the Bison to an FCS national title.

Accurate, poised and with a dual-threat skill set that fits what modern-day NFL teams are looking for at the quarterback position, Lance finds himself in the discussion as one of the potential top quarterbacks in the 2021 NFL Draft alongside Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence and Ohio State’s Justin Fields.

It will take a similarly spectacular 2020 season for Lance to be considered in the mix to be the first overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft but his name should already be firmly on the radar of teams likely to be in need of help at the quarterback position next offseason.

The jump from FCS to the NFL is a massive one, but it is one that has recently been made succcessfully by former Bison star Carson Wentz. Here we look at five teams Lance could star for in the 2021 campaign.
