ESPN’s Mel Kiper had Herbert ranked No. 6 overall among NFL draft prospects in his latest Big Board, while ESPN’s Todd McShay has him in No. 20 in his newest rankings of the most effective 3 2 prospects.
Even the 6-foot-6, 233-pound Herbert completed 59.6 percentage of his passes this year, casting for 2,985 yards with 28 touchdowns and eight interceptions while leading Oregon into an 8-4 record and a berth in the Redbox Bowl against Michigan State (3 pm Monday).
Earlier this month, Herbert declared himself fit for its bowl game after suffering what was described by trainer Mario Cristobal as a”deep bruise” on his shoulder after the Ducks’ victory against Oregon State on Nov. 2-3.
Herbert will have a chance to throw moves into his brother next season. Patrick Herbert, a tight end potential, committed to Oregon in May and signed his letter of intent last week.
For his career, Justin Herbert has chucked for 6,904 yards with 62 touchdowns and 17 interceptions.
