Lions opt for QB, take Miami’s Brad Kaaya


  • With the 215th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, the Detroit Lions selected QB Brad Kaaya out of Miami.
  • Kaaya’s 102.9 QB rating last season was ninth-best in this draft class.
  • His 74.4 passing grade ranked fourth among ACC QBs behind Deshaun Watson, Mitchell Trubisky, and Nathan Peterman.
  • Kaaya is shows natural talent at the quarterback position with his footwork and timing, but when under pressure his game changes significantly.
  • Without pressure he had a passer rating of 113.0, but with pressure that dropped to 59.2.
