Devin Leary opted not to participate in any of the testing workouts at the 2024 NFL Combine. The Kentucky QB may opt to perform those drills at the Wildcats Pro Day.

However, during the throwing drills on the day, Leary was able to put on display his accuracy and touch that made him an invitee to the Combine in the first place. Leary found success at both NC State and Kentucky during his college career, throwing for over 9,500 passing yards, and he put that talent on display in Indianapolis.

He may not have tested in the agility drills, but Leary’s arm talent was certainly on display in both the short area of the field and during the gauntlet drills.

Devin Leary’s 2024 NFL Draft Scouting Report

Leary grades out as an undrafted free agent QB prospect in the 2024 NFL Draft and should generate interest as a priority free agent (PFA) if he isn’t selected. Though Leary’s late-career tape wasn’t as strong as his work in 2021, there’s upside to be unearthed if an NFL team can get him back to form.

At his peak, Leary was a surgical pocket passer with competent creation ability and above-average functional arm talent. But late in his career, compounded injuries and a lack of supporting stability may have taken a toll on his overall comfort.

Nevertheless, as a PFA signee, Leary has appeal. He’s tough, experienced, and accurate when he’s on. He also has enough talent to take hold of a QB3 spot in an NFL rotation.
