Former Florida State quarterback Jordan Travis had his 2023 season cut short by an ankle injury, but his recovery is on the right track as the 2024 NFL draft approaches.

Per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Travis’ agent said the signal-caller was told by doctors that he should be fully cleared by April, just in time to participate in spring workouts.

Travis was in the midst of a stellar senior season before he went down with the injury during a game against North Alabama on Nov. 18.

The 24-year-old led the Seminoles to an 11-0 record as a starter and threw for 2,734 yards, 20 touchdowns and just two interceptions while also adding seven rushing touchdowns on his way to earning ACC Player of the Year and Offensive Player of the Year honors. He was also named a semifinalist for the Davey O’Brien Award and finished fifth in the Heisman Trophy voting.

Last month, ESPN NFL draft expert Mel Kiper Jr. ranked Travis as the No. 9 quarterback in this year’s draft class. In a scouting report of Travis, Ian Cummings of Pro Football Network called him a “hyper-elite creator and running threat with devastating burst, twitch, and lateral agility.” However, he will likely have to wait a while before hearing his name called at the podium.

“Purely off his film grade, Travis grades out as an early-to-mid Day 3 prospect in the 2024 NFL Draft, who could be sought after as a backup in that range,” Cummings stated. “His injury may complicate his capital, but Travis has enough physical talent and more than enough experience to be a valuable component in an NFL QB room.”

The news of Travis’ recovery progress should improve his draft stock, but he has a lot of work to do to climb the rankings in a talented group of quarterback prospects.
