21. HENDON HOOKER, VIRGINIA TECH
Hooker has proven to be one of the most dangerous running quarterbacks in the country this year. He ranks first among Power 5 quarterbacks in: rushing grade at 83.2, 15-plus yard rushes with 12, total broken tackles with 26 and yards per attempt on designed runs at 7.3. As a passer, Hooker has been reliant on play-action to help get that facet cooking. When Hooker uses play-action, Virginia Tech has generated 0.51 EPA per pass (ninth in the FBS) and the quarterback has averaged 11.1 yards per attempt en route to an 87.0 passing grade. Without play-action, Virginia Tech has generated -0.22 EPA per pass (98th in the FBS) and Hooker has averaged 5.9 yards per attempt for a 60.1 passing grade.
