Memphis quarterback Paxton Lynch has been drawing all sorts of praise this season. He has led the Tigers to an 8-0 record and No. 13 ranking in the College Football Playoff rankings.
Lynch has looked terrific all season long and is looking to take advantage of his talents right now. The junior quarterback has yet to declare for the 2016 NFL Draft, but he is getting more and more reason to do so.
Talked to 2 personnel directors and 2 scouts. Hands down their top QB is Paxton Lynch. Agree that Goff is talented but not physically ready

This year’s draft class isn’t loaded with good quarterbacks with Lynch and Cal quarterback Jared Goff being juniors a remaining year of eligibility.
So, it is rare to see a guy getting this much praise this early.
Yes, Lynch is a talented quarterback. His numbers are there, but you also have to take into account that he may not even declare for the Draft.
Right now, Lynch is listed as a top ten pick and the top quarterback on Mel Kiper Jr.’s big board. It would be hard for him to pass that opportunity up, but there is still always the chance he will.
