After spending three years as a Purdue Boilmaker, Jack Plummer transferred west to Cal before returning east to be a Louisville Cardinal. With his collegiate career now over, Plummer looks to continue his football career in the NFL. Although not expected to be drafted, he’ll look to raise his stock as the pre-draft process continues.

Although he might not have been a consistent starter, Plummer still has multiple years of starting experience under his belt. Before the snap, Plummer gets a good pre-snap read that allows him to find favorable matchups to get the ball out quickly and on time. He also appears calm in the pocket. Standing tall at 6’5”, Plummer steps up in the pocket confidently to buy time for himself as he surveys defenses. From this, if needed, Plummer can escape and extend plays with his legs thanks to his burst and underrated athleticism. 

However, even though underrated, his athleticism does have its limits given that he isn’t a threat on QB options. Additionally, despite appearing calm and confident in the pocket, his mechanics, footwork, and lack of eye deception play against him. Having below-average footwork, Plummer’s upper and lower halves play disconnected from each other leaving his upper body to do much of the work when throwing the ball. Because of this, Plummer possesses below-average velocity and is very inconsistent with his accuracy. Lastly, Plummer can’t deceive second and third-level defenders with his eyes as he’ll lock into a direction, drawing defenders to his intended target. 

Currently projected to be a UDFA, there isn’t much optimism he’ll break through thi barrier unless he has great Senior Bowl, pro-day, and possibly NFL Combine performances. Although it’s possible, I wouldn’t count on it from the Louisville product.


My Two Cents

I like seeing an underdog story. I might be writing all this about Plummer, but that doesn’t mean I hope he doesn’t prove me wrong. Still, what I see out of Plummer is a UDFA who makes it out of summer ball as a practice squad player. He may not stick with the team that signs him, but he should stick on a practice squad for at least his rookie year.
