ESPN Projects Sam Hartman’s NFL Draft Chances


The 2024 NFL draft is just weeks away and several Notre Dame players are hoping to hear their names called.

One of those is quarterback Sam Hartman who is draft bound after using his final year of eligibility with the Irish after setting countless records at Wake Forest.

Notre Dame’s offense didn’t live up to some lofty expectations in 2023 with Hartman at the helm but it still produced some huge numbers against the teams it should.

So will Hartman hear his name called in the draft or will he be signing as an undrafted free agent somewhere?

ESPN’s Jordan Reid ranked his top-13 quarterback prospects in the 2024 NFL draft and included Hartman at No. 10.

“Getting the ball out quickly hasn’t been a problem for Hartman, as he’s a quick decision-maker,” said Reid, touching on where Hartman excels. “But he has also been accurate on deep throws, even though he has arm strength limitations. Hartman had 11 touchdowns to one interception and an 88.5 QBR on throws 20-plus yards downfield this past season.

“Part of the reason that Hartman transferred to Notre Dame was to gain experience in a pro-style system, and he looked comfortable operating from both shotgun and under center at the Senior Bowl. His accuracy in the short-to-intermediate areas was consistent all week in Mobile, Alabama.”

Despite struggles against the likes of Ohio State, Louisville, and Clemson, Hartman did complete the highest percentage of passes in his college career during his one year in South Bend.

Reid’s top-ranked quarterback in the class comes as no surprise as it’s Southern Cal‘s Caleb Williams.
