We’ve generally had 3 quarterbacks enter the preliminary of our weekly mock drafts, however with the college season concluded (conserve the playoffs), and draft season unofficially underway, do not be amazed if that number grows as we become aware of quarterback-needy groups talking themselves into gamers that, honestly, are second-round skills who wind up being overdrafted.
But that’s what makes the entire draft procedure fascinating, and with numerous groups requiring franchise quarterbacks, anticipate an operate on signal-callers, even in a distinctly weak 2022 draft class.
For us, Matt Corral stays our QB1, in part since of how well he played this fall, however likewise since of concerns about Carson Strong’s knee. (We’ve been stating it for months, however if Strong’s knee is 100%, he’s the passer we’re taking initially.) After Corral, it’s large open; some groups might like Strong, others might choose Kenny Pickett, and others still might like the advantage of Malik Willis or Sam Howell or Desmond Ridder.
Given the state of this QB class, possibly the genuine winners may be Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson, Deshaun Watson or any other veteran quarterbacks who require their method off their present clubs. Hello, a lot can alter, not just in between now and the draft, however in between the draft and the NFL season. A year back, some folks (not us!) believed it was insane to recommend that Mac Jones was not just a legitimate first-round skill, however among the most-NFL-ready passers in the class.
For now, keep checking out to see how the whole preliminary unfolds.
