Former Lake Stevens High School standout and University of Washington quarterback Jacob Eason is still waiting to hear his name called.
Eason, who played parts of two seasons at Georgia before transferring to the University of Washington, was not selected in the first three rounds of the NFL draft.
The draft continues at 9 a.m. Saturday (ABC, ESPN, NFLN) and has a total of seven rounds. Eason is rated as the top QB still available according to ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr.
Only five quarterbacks have been taken in the draft so far. LSU’s Joe Burrow was the first-overall pick to the Cincinnati Bengals; Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa went fifth overall to the Miami Dolphins; Oregon’s Justin Herbert was selected sixth by the Los Angeles Chargers; Utah State’s Jordan Love went 26th to the Green Bay Packers; and Oklahoma’s Jalen hurts was picked 53rd overall by the Philadelphia Eagles.
Three other former local prep standouts are available to be selected on Saturday: Marysville Pilchuck alum Jake Luton (Oregon State), Marysville Pilchuck alum Austin Joyner (Washington) and Glacier Peak alum Mosese Fifita (Air Force).
Eligible players who aren’t selected in the NFL draft become free agents and can sign with any team.
