31. Daniel Jones (Giants)
Jones certainly has a strong arm and skilled receivers, but without one of them his offense greatly suffers. We’ll just have to wait and see how Jones does this season.
30. Jalen Hurts (Eagles)
The Eagles have made it clear that they want Jalen Hurts as their starting quarterback. They even let Nick Foles leave for the Jaguars and replaced Carson Wentz with Hurts after a poor season. A duel threat, it’s still unknown if he’ll be the starting quarterback for the Eagles in the long term.
29. Tua Tagovailoa (Dolphins)
While a star player at the collegiate level, it remains to be seen if Tagovailoa has what it takes for the NFL level. Even one of his former teammates, Jayden Waddle, drafted to give him more support, said they preferred playing with Mac Jones over him.
28. Teddy Bridgewater (Broncos)
Bridgewater is playing as the team’s starting quarterback this season, replacing former rookie Drew Lock after a lackluster season. Whether or not Bridgewater will prove to be a superior choice remains to be seen.
27. Tayler Heinicke (Washington Football Team)
With Ryan Fitzpatrick out of the game, Taylor Heinicke’s taken over as quarterback. He’s had a varied career and has been on several teams as a free agent, but he’s never left too much of an impression on whatever team he’s a part of.
26. Trevor Siemian (Saints)
Trevor Siemian’s also needed to step in for Jameis Winston. While he was on the Broncos when they won Super Bowl 50, he hasn’t done much else.
25. Cam Newton (Panthers)
Cam Newton’s back on the Panthers after being dropped from the Patriots and has replaced Sam Darnold as the primary quarterback. He was starting to fall off a bit while playing in New England, so only time will tell if it was the team or him.
24. Justin Fields (Bears)
Initially, there were arguments over why Andy Dalton should be starting on the Bears over Justin Fields. Well, Justin Fields is back as the starting quarterback following Dalton was injured. Perhaps he’ll be able to earn back his starting position.
23. Carson Wentz (Colts)
Wentz has been reunited with his former coach, Frank Reich. Hopefully he’ll be able to bring out the same skill that made him an MVP-player while still with the Eagles. He’s been having a rather poor past seasons, and was even benched in favor of Jalen Hurts. Hopefully he’ll be able to bounce back for this season.
22. Trevor Lawrence (Jaguars)
Lawrence being selected in the first round of the draft cements the beginning of a new era for the Jaguars. While at Clemson, he showed a great deal of skill and athleticism. The jaguars needed some kind of shock to revitalize themselves, and Lawrence might be just that.
21. Joe Burrow (Bengals)
Burrow has proven that he deserves to be in the NFL, with even his college football stats supporting his skill. Unfortunately, his season ended prematurely after having torn his ACL. He’ll be returning this season, and with a slew of great offensive weapons, it’ll be interesting to see where this all goes.
20. Mac Jones (Patriots)
With Cam Newton recently being dropped by the franchise, it’s time for Mac Jones to step in as the new quarterback for the New England Patriots. Some say that picking Jones over Newton is a huge mistake. It appears as though he doesn’t know what he’s doing quite yet, but maybe he’ll come into his own.
19. Jimmy Garoppolo (49ers)
After an incredibly strong start to his season in 2017, Garoppolo’s first season as a starting quarterback ended after only two games. Ever since then, the two-time Super Bowl Champion has been trying to get back into his groove. And with Trey Lance waiting in the wings, Garoppolo needs to put out a fantastic showing to fend off his potential replacement.
18. Jared Goff (Lions)
Goff’s career has had its ups and downs over the four years he’s been in the NFL. Playing abysmally in his rookie year, he managed to turn things around in his second and third season. However, after a much poorer fourth season, he’s since been moved from LA to Detroit. Hopefully, without the expectations that were once put on his shoulders, he can relax and player better.
