Scouting Report: Devante Kincade, QB, Grambling

Dallas, TX | 6010 | 190 | 4.58E | 2018

Bring the stick’em, this man is hard to grasp! Possesses rare elusiveness and scrambling ability, to go along with a strong arm. Shows great command and presence in the huddle; has been praised as an energetic leader who players gravitate towards. Very poised player; never seems to be fazed by the moment and demonstrates excellent anticipation. His body frame might remind you of Jeff Garcia or Teddy Bridgewater and his lack of size is a legitimate concern at the next level. He broke his ankle prior to the Sugar Bowl as a sophomore and had a metal rod inserted. Led Grambling to the black college national championship in 2016. Doesn’t always carry the ball in the correct arm when running the ball. A transfer from Ole Miss, where he lost the starting job to Chad Kelly, there was a real buzz on him coming out of high school; he could’ve played at several other high-profile programs but wanted to be close to home due to his ill mom—he is from Dallas, Texas. There is much to like about his overall game and despite his smallish stature, his makeup is sure to catch pro scouts’ attention. He would be suited to star in the CFL game due to his ability to extend plays and utilize his quicks but expect him to receive a crack in the NFL as a developmental quarterback. It would not be surprising to see him exceed expectations.
