Jordan Travis Draft Profile | Florida State, QB Scouting Report

    Can Florida State QB Jordan Travis compete for one of the Round 1 QB spots in the 2024 NFL Draft? His scouting report provides optimism on that front.

    The growth of Florida State Seminoles QB Jordan Travis has been a sight to behold over the past three years — but has he grown enough to enter the Round 1 conversation in the 2024 NFL Draft? Here, we’ll go through Travis’ full scouting report and discuss his grade and projection at the NFL level.

    Jordan Travis Draft Profile and Measurements

    • Height: 6’1″
    • Weight: 212
    • Position: Quarterback
    • School: Florida State
    • Current Year: Redshirt Senior

    As recent as three years ago, few would believe that Travis would ever find himself in the early-round NFL Draft conversation. He started his career at Louisville in 2018 as a three-star recruit with little fanfare. Travis transferred to Florida State a year later, with even less fanfare — and at one point, he was encouraged to switch from QB to WR.

    However, when Mike Norvell arrived in Tallahassee in 2020, he allowed Travis to take his lumps as a passer and build his confidence. Over time, that proved to be a very fruitful gambit.

    Travis has always been a dangerous rushing threat, with 1,506 yards and 21 touchdowns since 2020. But he’s since developed into a potent passer.

    Travis took a visible step up in 2021, and last year, he emerged as one of the most efficient signal-callers in all of college football. On top of his rushing production, Travis completed 226 of 353 attempts (64%) for 3,214 yards, 24 touchdowns, and just five interceptions.

    He earned second-team All-ACC honors behind only Drake Maye, and his drastic development now has evaluators looking at him as a potential NFL starter.

    Jordan Travis Scouting Report


    • Hyper-elite creator and running threat with devastating burst, twitch, and lateral agility.
    • With creation capacity, can extend plays to the very end of their shelf life and succeed.
    • Has piercing sharp change-of-direction and can pinch insanely acute angles as a runner.
    • Channels searing explosiveness out of cuts and has the speed to produce big plays.
    • Has the arm strength to generate solid velocity in the short range and stay on schedule.
    • Arm is exceptionally elastic and can sustain velocity from a multitude of launch angles.
    • Has instinctive mechanical feel with a steady base, level shoulders, and brisk rotation.
    • Able to use controlled shoulder tilt to add loft on boundary fades and corner routes.
    • Has a keen ability to maintain congruence even when drifting from pressure threats.
    • Can use subtle bouts of eye manipulation to displace linebackers and open the middle.
    • Can anticipate seam windows and layer passes between multiple levels of coverage.
    • Stays cool and collected when pressured and has good off-script vision and equilibrium.
    • Has extremely consistent areal accuracy and flashes rare situational precision.
    • Sound decision-maker with good discretion and a willingness to take calculated risks.
    • Steely competitor with ice in his veins who can deliver in high-pressure situations.


    • Arm strength, while above average, is visibly non-elite and can be limiting at times.
    • Velocity doesn’t always carry well into the deep third or past tight coverage.
    • At times, works himself into a corner when evading, failing to sense backside rushers.
    • On occasion, sudden pressure can cause him to panic, lurch, and force unideal throws.
    • Release can be concave and overhand at times, pushing passes higher than preferred.
    • Sometimes fails to see trailing zone defenders underneath comeback routes.
    • Could be quicker to anticipate breaks on short hitches and curls.
    • Sometimes forces throws after clutching, giving DBs more time to react and close in.
    • Frame is around average size and lacks high-end mass and density.
    • Has improved at reducing fumbles but still experiences lapses in ball security.
    • Will be a 24-year-old rookie in 2024.

    Current Draft Projection and Summary

    Early in the 2024 NFL Draft cycle, Travis grades out as a top-five QB prospect and one of the top seniors at the position. His raw grade places him safely in the early-round range, and when factoring in positional value, Travis is a viable candidate for mid-to-late Round 1 capital — especially if he keeps trending up in 2023.

    Travis’ arm strength is only above average at best, and he’ll also be 24 years old. But outside of those notes, he’s a smart, competitive, and extremely well-rounded presence whose athleticism is at the very pinnacle of his position group and whose creation capacity is nearly on par with Caleb Williams.

    Jordan Travis

    Travis doesn’t have Williams’ arm strength or velocity, but he does have hyper-elite mobility. He’s an incredibly explosive athlete with instant burst, searing agility and quickness, and speed. He also has the high-level arm elasticity to elongate throwing windows, mix pace and touch, and operate off-platform.

    In the pocket, Travis is a very capable operator. He’s a good processor and decision-maker who shows malleability and discretion on a situational basis. His athleticism translates to easy pocket mobility and evasive freedom, and he has superb mechanical feel, which helps contribute to exceptional overall accuracy and situational precision as a passer.

    Even when accounting for his age, Travis grades out well enough to potentially earn a place in Round 1 and earn an opportunity as an NFL starter. And conceptually, there’s a silver lining with his age.

    Through his experience, Travis has shown persistence through adversity, that he can be coached, and that he has a steep developmental track. That coachability and upward trajectory won’t be lost on coaches and evaluators.

    Travis’ limited arm strength does occasionally impact his ability to attack vertically. But overall, he’s a relatively complete signal-caller who can minimize risk, hit targets with accuracy, and maintain resolve in high-pressure spots — and his ability to create at the highest clip is an absolute game-changer.
