Notre Dame quarterback DeShone Kizer may slide during the 2017 NFL draft because of concerns about his personality compared to fellow top QB prospects, including Mitchell Trubisky and Deshaun Watson. Albert Breer of The MMQB passed along comments from an unnamed AFC head coach, who praised the Fighting Irish star's on-field talent but questioned his intangibles. "He's got the size, the arm talent and he's very bright," the coach said. "But there's a disconnect there. There are diva qualities there, and he seems to get voices in his head, like he's fighting who he is. And once the cycle starts, he can't get himself right." Breer noted the latest information from sources around the league suggests Kizer could fall out of the first round and end up being the fourth or fifth quarterback off the board. That means he may have been leapfrogged by Patrick Mahomes II and Davis Webb in the QB pecking order.
