20 Matt Cassel – New England Patriots

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports activities

Whereas Tom Brady looks like he will be round for an additional few years, the Patriots might but once more maintain off on drafting his successor, contemplating this yr’s QB class is not all that robust anyway. For now, the Patriots will simply give Brady a backup he is snug with, and who could also be an improve over Brian Hoyer.

Within the case of Matt Cassel, he has 4 years of expertise beneath Invoice Belichick (and Josh McDaniels for that matter). Whereas it’ll take a while for him to know the offense once more, he’s an incredible match to usher in, and hold Brady snug, figuring out his successor is not gunning for his job.

19 Taysom Hill – Oakland Raiders

Chuck Prepare dinner-USA TODAY Sports activities

What would you assume in the event you heard that Taysom Hill could possibly be an intriguing identify for groups this offseason? You’d in all probability be confused, however there’s a purpose why he might garner a number of curiosity. With the Saints, he was just about a utility participant, whose major place was labeled as a quarterback. In actuality although, he was not often used to ever throw the soccer.

A workforce just like the Raiders, with some huge cash, might pay Hill a strong quantity. Provided that Hill can contribute in a number of methods, he might actually be a helpful participant for any staff. With a scarcity of weapons on his staff, Jon Gruden can use his creativity to get Hill concerned.

18 Ryan Fitzpatrick – Arizona Cardinals

Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports activities

Most seasons, Ryan Fitzpatrick would in all probability be in search of a beginning job. Nevertheless, there are some extra intriguing names available on the market this offseason and everybody is aware of by now that Fitzmagic by no means lasts a whole season. The place he’ll discover work is on a workforce with a younger quarterback. Fitzpatrick has simply as a lot expertise as any quarterback within the league, so it is sensible why a group would need to deliver him in to assist their younger quarterback develop.

The Cardinals have a younger quarterback in Josh Rosen, however they will want a dependable veteran behind a younger QB. Kliff Kingsbury’s offense requires QBs who aren’t afraid to take photographs downfield and everyone knows Fitz likes to take possibilities. This might undoubtedly be an ideal match on each side.

17 Teddy Bridgewater – Cincinnati Bengals

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports activities

Teddy Bridgewater’s profession won’t proceed in New Orleans, so he’s going to should play free company once more. His one begin with the Saints didn’t assist his argument that he could possibly be a beginning quarterback within the NFL, apart from one staff. In the event that they signal him, Bridgewater might probably problem for the beginning job subsequent season for the Cincinnati Bengals.

What does that imply for Andy Dalton? Nicely, if Bridgewater beats him out, that signifies that he will get traded. Dalton is 31 years previous, coming off of a season the place he missed lots of video games. The Bengals are anticipated to revamp their offense, parting methods with Dalton and A.J. Inexperienced. They will begin re-building by signing Bridgewater as their QB for now, and look to the draft when the QB class is stronger.

16 Andy Dalton – Washington Redskins

Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports activities

If Andy Dalton will get traded, the place does he go subsequent? A staff with curiosity might be the Washington Redskins. They are going to be lively within the draft, however additionally they have a roster with gifted gamers which have the power to win now. Even with all of the accidents they handled, this workforce was nonetheless main the NFC East in December.

To remain aggressive, they will commerce a 3rd and fifth-round decide to accumulate Dalton. Let’s not overlook that Jay Gruden was Dalton’s offensive coordinator earlier in his profession. He can be a strong match for a group making an attempt to get again into the playoffs, if certainly Alex Smith is unable to return subsequent season.

15 Daniel Jones – Denver Broncos

Nell Redmond-USA TODAY Sports activities

We anticipate that John Elway will once more look to repair the Broncos quarterback state of affairs. Daniel Jones was the starter all three seasons at Duke, however he didn’t actually shine till this season. He threw for two,674 yards, 22 touchdowns, and 9 interceptions.

Jones undoubtedly has the skillset to compete within the NFL, however the place some purple flags could also be involved lie together with his management. Within the Senior Bowl, Jones struggled and was so annoyed that he wouldn’t speak with reporters. He confirmed poor accountability, which might lead him to slip out of the primary spherical. If the Broncos see that he is nonetheless round late within the first spherical, they could even commerce as much as get him. It definitely would put some warmth on Case Keenum to ship subsequent season.

14 Tyrod Taylor – Carolina Panthers

Chuck Prepare dinner-USA TODAY Sports activities

Should you thought you noticed the final of Tyrod Taylor as a beginning quarterback, you have been flawed. Stories have it that Cam Newton might miss the complete 2019 season to get his shoulder proper, which opens up a beginning position. He is already undergone a process on his shoulder. Taylor is sensible for Carolina, because of his mobility and the truth that he takes care of the soccer. In an offense with versatile expertise, he might thrive within the state of affairs.

Enjoying on an offense that designs runs for Taylor, with a terrific checkdown choice in Christian McCaffrey will permit him to succeed. Taylor will get one other alternative to point out that he might be a beginning quarterback within the NFL. He might signal a one-year deal and if Newton does in reality play subsequent yr, nicely that leaves Carolina with one of many recreation’s higher backups.

13 Joe Flacco – Miami Dolphins

Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports activities

Lamar Jackson is in, Joe Flacco is out. Don’t anticipate Flacco’s profession to be over simply but. With the Dolphins doubtless parting methods with Ryan Tannehill, Flacco will in all probability make his means right down to South Seashore. Accidents are what actually harm Tannehill, so the Dolphins can be taken with an honest quarterback that may keep wholesome.

Flacco getting harm in 2018 was an anomaly, as he’s often sturdy. This was solely the second season in his profession that he’s missed video games. Flacco has had success all through his profession and appeared good in 2018 till he obtained harm. The Dolphins can signal him to a one-year deal, and draft a QB to take over for the lengthy haul.

12 Jacoby Brissett – Pittsburgh Steelers

Thomas J. Russo-USA TODAY Sports activities

You may be questioning why the Steelers might probably commerce for Jacoby Brissett. Properly, if Ben Roethlisberger declares that 2019 is his last season, the Steelers need to get as a lot expertise as potential within the QB room. With Le’Veon Bell nearly as good as gone and Antonio Brown more likely to comply with go well with, Roethlisberger could also be in robust to steer the Steelers to a Tremendous Bowl subsequent season.

Brissett has numerous expertise however isn’t being utilized in Indy. You possibly can argue that he’s among the best backup quarterbacks within the NFL. Brissett has said he needs to be a starter within the NFL, however that’ll by no means occur in Indy with Andrew Luck there. With Huge Ben nearing retirement although, Brisesett might ultimately get that chance in Pittsburgh.

11 Dwayne Haskins – New York Giants

Greg Bartram-USA TODAY Sports activities

At this present time, one of the crucial apparent strikes is the Giants drafting Dwayne Haskins. Haskins is projected to probably be the primary quarterback off the board within the draft, and because the draft order stands now, the Giants are the primary workforce choosing with an apparent want for a QB. Haskins was actually good this season, however he nonetheless wants a while to develop. One full season in school isn’t going to be sufficient to leap proper into issues within the NFL.

Eli Manning will possible play his last season within the NFL, whereas Haskins learns from the veteran.

10 Will Grier – Washington Redskins

Ben Queen-USA TODAY Sports activities

It’s type of shocking that Will Grier is being missed on this draft in comparison with different quarterbacks. In his two seasons at West Virginia, he completed with 7,354 passing yards, 71 touchdowns, and 20 interceptions. Grier is sensible with the soccer and provides swag to his recreation.

The Redskins will achieve a number of love for Grier, and both draft him with their first-round decide or transfer up late within the first spherical. Given the above state of affairs with Andy Dalton, Grier might sit for a season behind the veteran, after which get to take over in 2020. It’s a sensible transfer, contemplating the remainder of the NFC East is simply getting youthful.

9 Nick Foles – Jacksonville Jaguars

Chuck Prepare dinner-USA TODAY Sports activities

Contemplating his success these previous two seasons, Nick Foles would be the most intriguing quarterback this offseason. In contrast to many of those different quarterbacks, Foles will be capable of step proper in and carry out. He’s 30-years previous, so he nonetheless has a lot of soccer left in him. He’s not super-young although, which is why he probably indicators with the Jaguars.

Tom Coughlin provides his former rival a second and fifth spherical decide, together with a large receiver for Foles. After final season, groups appear fascinated with making an attempt to commerce gamers. With the shortage of extensive receivers obtainable this offseason, the Eagles have an interest.

eight Drew Lock – Miami Dolphins

Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports activities

On this draft, Drew Lock is the quarterback who’s rising on everybody’s draft boards. Initially, Dwayne Haskins was the one quarterback thought-about to be a first-round expertise, however Lock has made his approach in there. The Dolphins know they should prepare for the longer term, to allow them to commerce up and draft Lock.

Lock has been terrific the final three seasons, limiting turnovers and even having the athleticism to sometimes make performs on the bottom. Lock should sit for a season, however at the least Miami followers can now have some hope for his or her future.

7 Blake Bortles – Buffalo Payments

Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports activities

The Jaguars are anticipated to maneuver on from Blake Bortles this offseason. The one difficulty is whether or not they’ll be capable of discover a staff that may be prepared to take Bortles’s cap hit, because the Jags would have some lifeless cash on their cap by chopping Bortles. A method the Jags can transfer on, can be to half methods with a draft decide as a way to entice a workforce to take Bortles, very similar to the Texans did once they packaged Brock Osweiler with a 2nd rounder to the Browns.

The Payments have over $80 million in cap area to work with and have Josh Allen on a rookie deal. Bortles would not be a menace for Allen’s beginning job, and the Payments might add one other draft decide in a yr the place they will actually need to load up.

6 Kyler Murray – Arizona Cardinals

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports activities

Women and gents, let’s put together to welcome Kyler Murray to the NFL. Kliff Kingsbury stated in an interview again in October that he would draft Murray with the primary general draft decide if that they had the chance. Some might really feel just like the prospect of taking Murray first general is nuts, contemplating they only took Josh Rosen final yr. Nicely, we’ll get to how the Cardinals could make it work.

The Cardinals can take Nick Bosa with the primary general draft decide, after which commerce again into the primary spherical to pick Kyler Murray. That approach, the Cardinals might open coaching camp with an open competitors for the beginning job, and probably discover a commerce associate later.

5 Davis Webb – Jacksonville Jaguars

Wealthy Barnes-USA TODAY Sports activities

Clearly, the Jaguars’ 2019 beginning quarterback gained’t be Davis Webb, however it’s not a nasty concept to take a shot at him in free company. He shall be low cost to signal, and he has loads of potential. Webb was drafted within the third spherical of the 2017 NFL Draft and could possibly be trying to play together with his third staff in three seasons.

Webb has by no means performed in an NFL recreation, which ought to give groups optimism about him. He has but to show he shouldn’t be within the league. When he transferred to the College of California for his remaining collegiate season, he threw for four,295 yards, 37 landing passes, and 12 interceptions.

four Trevor Siemian – New York Jets

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports activities

Only a yr in the past, Trevor Siemian was a beginning quarterback. In 2018, he was the backup to probably the most overpaid quarterback within the NFL. No staff goes to need Siemian to be their beginning quarterback, however he has beneficial expertise that could possibly be for a staff with a younger quarterback.

In New York, the Jets will possible see Sam Darnold’s backup retire. Josh McCown made his final lump of cash, however will possible retire with no probability at being a starter once more. This can be a good touchdown spot for Siemian, as he’s nearer in age with Darnold, so he may help him progress.

three Brett Hundley – Detroit Lions

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports activities

A workforce that has no sense of path proper now’s the Detroit Lions. They traded one among their greatest playmakers, Golden Tate, with out discovering a strategy to substitute him. Matthew Stafford is coming off certainly one of his worst seasons, so the questions will come up if it’s coming time to half methods with the veteran quarterback.

They gained’t make a critical push for a quarterback but, however they’ll discover a succesful backup quarterback who they see has potential. Groups like Brett Hundley and he might have a future. The Lions might signal him on an affordable deal, and see what sort of future he has.

When Alex Smith sustained a probably career-ending damage, and Colt McCoy went down too, the Redskins went out and signed Josh Johnson. Previous to this season, Johnson hadn’t thrown a soccer in a daily season recreation since 2011. Everybody was stunned that the Redskins turned to Johnson in free company, contemplating different quarterbacks, primarily Colin Kaepernick, have been out there via free company.

Johnson wasn’t all that dangerous contemplating the period of time he needed to study Washington’s offense. Groups can be , particularly the Titans, contemplating Marcus Mariota’s lack of ability to remain on the sector. Johnson has an identical type to Mariota, which ought to assist this be the right match.

1 Ryan Finley – New Orleans Saints

Ivan Pierre Aguirre-USA TODAY Sports activities

Wanting on the quarterbacks on this draft, Ryan Finley will doubtless be drafted within the later rounds. A staff that gained’t draft a quarterback early within the draft is the New Orleans Saints. On account of Teddy Bridgewater’s poor efficiency to finish the season, they’ll doubtless determine to not use some huge cash to increase him.

As an alternative, they will attempt to discover Drew Brees’s potential successor late within the draft. If they will get him in a center spherical, North Carolina State quarterback, Ryan Finley can be an excellent choice. Finley’s greatest season got here this season, with three,928 passing yards, 25 landing passes, and 11 interceptions. He has plenty of room for enchancment, nevertheless it’s a strong danger for a day two or perhaps even a day three decide.
