Minnesota Vikings select former Menomonie QB Nate Stanley in NFL Draft

With the #244 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, the Minnesota Vikings selected former Menomonie High School quarterback Nate Stanley out of Iowa, the sixth former Wisconsin high school football player drafted this year.

Stanley was one of the final 12 players taken in this year's Draft.

Stanley was among the top players in the state in high school, and opted to go to Iowa after not receiving any interest from Wisconsin on the recruiting trail.

Here's what NFL.com has to say, where they projected him to the 5th round:

Big guy with a good arm who throws with nice touch to intermediate and deep windows, but failed to convince that he could manage games and play with an NFL level of consistency while at Iowa. The physical tools and traits are appealing and potentially moldable, but he may need plus talent to elevate his play rather than the other way around. Stanley has moments where he is comfortable in a pro-style attack, but struggles to find a rhythm in the short passing game. His indecisiveness and lack of mobility could make him a sitting duck against NFL defenses and might limit him to backup status.
