2022 NFL Draft: Two Air Raid Quarterbacks Hope to Hear Their Names Called

The 2022 NFL Draft is officially here, and hundreds of college football athletes are hoping for the chance to play professional football.

This year’s quarterback class features a wide variety of well-known athletes, including Ole Miss star Matt Corral, Kenny Pickett of Pittsburgh and Liberty’s Malik Willis. Among the many quarterbacks anxiously waiting on a very important phone call are two of the Air Raid offense’s newest stars: Carson Strong of Nevada and Bailey Zappe of Western Kentucky.

Strong was not the most highly recruited quarterback out of high school, but he certainly defied the odds in college. He didn’t see playing time in 2018 but played a major role on the team during the 2019 and 2020 seasons. This past season was by far his best. Strong finished the year going 367-of-524 passing for 4,186 yards with 36 touchdowns and eight interceptions.
