Scouts, Inc. draft rating: 76 (out of 100)Pick overall: 16What the draft experts were saying: As gifted as any quarterback in the class, with a strong arm and good mobility. Scouts appreciate his leadership qualities and toughness, and hope he can improve on his consistency. NFL.comWhere they are now: After Manuel started 10 games as a rookie with the Bills, he fell out of favor and started just seven more games over the next three seasons. He spent the 2017 season with the Raiders but was cut before 2018. After failing to make the Chiefs roster before the 2019 season, he announced his retirement and is now an analyst for the ACC Network, ESPN, and SiriusXM.Scouts, Inc. draft rating: 78Pick overall: 25What the draft experts were saying: It will take Tebow 3-4 years to learn an NFL offense to where he could actually start a game. Tebow's best fit at the next level will be at fullback or H-Back because his best skills are his running abilities; there's too much development involved to draft Tebow as a franchise quarterback. - Walter FootballWhere they are now: Tebow spent just two seasons with the Broncos, winning one playoff game. He was traded to the Jets, where he spent one season mostly on special teams. He later failed to make the rosters with the Patriots and Eagles before leaving football to pursue a career as a professional baseball player. He is now an analyst for ESPN, an author, and a motivational speaker. Scouts, Inc. draft rating: 80Pick overall: 6What the draft experts were saying: Jones needs a place where he can develop. Learning behind Philip Rivers and Tyrod Taylor in Los Angeles is a good match for him. While he has good timing as a passer, he needs to work on his poise under pressure. - Todd McShay, ESPNWhere they are now: Jones replaced Eli Manning as the Giants' starter after just six games in his rookie season. Jones has shown steady improvement in four years as a starter and led the Giants to the playoffs for the first time since 2016.Scouts, Inc. draft rating: 82Pick overall: 10What the draft experts were saying: Mahomes' ability to improvise and extend plays can lead to big plays for his offense, but he will have to prove he can operate with better anticipation and be willing to take what the defense gives him in order to win from the pocket. Mahomes will be a work in progress, but he's a high ceiling, low floor prospect. - NFL.comWhere they are now: Since entering the league, Mahomes has emerged as the best quarterback in the NFL, winning the MVP twice and leading the Chiefs to five AFC title games, three Super Bowls, and championships in 2019 and 2022. He's pretty good.Scouts, Inc. draft rating: 85Pick overall: 26What the draft experts were saying: Based on film and projecting for the future, Paxton Lynch is the best quarterback in this NFL Draft. Period. - Sporting NewsWhere they are now: Lynch was drafted hoping to be the heir to Peyton Manning, but in two seasons, he started just four games. He was cut before the 2018 season, sat out the entire season, and then spent the 2019 season with the Steelers, but he did not appear in any games. He has since spent time as a backup QB in the CFL and most recently started three games for the USFL's Michigan Panthers in 2022.Scouts, Inc. draft rating: 85Pick overall: 12What the draft experts were saying: He doesn't have the strongest arm and will have some trouble driving the ball downfield, but he does an excellent job of anticipating and delivering the ball in stride on short-to-intermediate routes. He is also light on his feet and can buy time within the pocket. - ESPNWhere they are now: Ponder led the Vikings to a 10-6 record in his second season, but injuries and inconsistency cost him his job over the next two seasons. Ponder briefly spent time with the Broncos and 49ers but never appeared in a game. He has been out of the league since 2017. In 2021, he founded The Post, a business community for athletes.Scouts, Inc. draft rating: 86Pick overall: 32What the draft experts were saying: He has rare speed and athleticism and can single-handedly win games. Jackson's accuracy is clearly spotty and teams must decide the level of accuracy they are willing to live with relative to his ability to create explosive plays ... Like Deshaun Watson in 2017, Jackson has the ability to counter mental mistakes and turnovers with a high number of explosive, touchdown-making plays. - NFL.comWhere they are now: Jackson went 6-1 as a starter his rookie season and showed flashes of being a franchise quarterback for the Ravens. In his second season, he threw an NFL-best 36 TD passes and rushed for an NFL-quarterback-record 1,200 yards and another 7 TDs en route to being named MVP. He recently requested a trade from the Ravens.Scouts, Inc. draft rating: 86Pick overall: 22What the draft experts were saying: Weeden is accurate and can get the ball out of his hands quickly, plus he has a very strong arm. However, there are concerns about his ability to make sound decisions under pressure. - ESPNWhere they are now: Weeden was cut by the Browns after just two seasons, and he later started games with the Dallas Cowboys and Houston Texans. Weeden spent the 2017 and 2018 seasons as a backup with the Tennessee Titans and Houston Texans. He and his wife now run the Brandon Weeden Foundation, which raises money for research and the care of children in need of cardiac care.Scouts, Inc. draft rating: 87Pick overall: 12What the draft experts were saying: [His interceptions] are worrisome. But then you watch him play like he did in the national title game win over Alabama and you see a potential top-five pick. At 6-2, 221, Watson doesn't have ideal size, but he has the arm strength, toughness and athleticism to play for a long time. - Mel KiperWhere they are now: Watson was handed the starting job in Week 2 of his rookie season and became one of the most exciting players in the NFL. After some up and down years marred by injuries, Watson and the Texans appeared to be headed for a divorce when two dozen lawsuits were brought against him by massage therapists alleging sexual misconduct. He was later traded to the Browns, missing the first 11 games of the 2022 season due to a suspension.Scouts, Inc. draft rating: 88Pick overall: 2What the draft experts were saying: Trubisky is the favorite to be the first quarterback selected. Some team sources see him as a second-round talent, while others have him in Round 1. While he isn't a true top-of-the-draft talent at quarterback like an Andrew Luck or Jameis Winston, Trubisky will probably go high in the first round because of teams desperate to find a franchise quarterback. - Walter FootballWhere they are now: Trubisky started 12 games his rookie season, throwing seven touchdowns and seven interceptions. His second season was better, leading the Bears to a 12-4 record and a spot in the playoffs. After that year, Trubisky mainly served as a punchline in Chicago before landing with the Buffalo Bills as a backup in 2021. He is now with the Steelers, where he entered the 2022 season as the starter to replace Ben Roethlisberger.Scouts, Inc. draft rating: 89Pick overall: 32What the draft experts were saying: Compensates for a lack of elite arm talent and prototype measureables with the intangibles and football intelligence that could elevate the other 52 players around him. - NFL.comWhere they are now: Bridgewater led the Vikings to the 2015 playoffs and showed signs of a promising NFL career before a devastating knee injury nearly ended it. He revived his career as a backup for the Saints, going 5-0 as a starter in 2019. Bridgewater was the starter for the Panthers for the 2020 season and the Broncos in 2021. This past year he was a backup with the Dolphins.Scouts, Inc. draft rating: 89Pick overall: 6What the draft experts were saying: The senior has all the physical tools to be a good NFL starter with a powerful arm, mobility and accuracy. When Herbert is given time, he is utterly deadly in his ability to carve up a defense. — Walter FootballWhere they are now: Herbert took over as the starter in Los Angeles after scheduled starter Tyrod Taylor was forced out of action just before the kickoff of a game early in the 2020 season. Herbert has yet to lead the Chargers to the playoffs, but he has emerged as one of the more promising young QBs in the league, making the Pro Bowl after his second season.Scouts, Inc. draft rating: 90Pick overall: 15What the draft experts were saying: I'm not buying that Haskins' athleticism will cause him to drop far -- we knew he wasn't a great athlete. He will pick teams apart from the pocket. - Mel Kiper, ESPNWhere they are now: Haskins struggled in seven starts as a rookie, throwing 7 TDs and 7 INTs. He was eventually benched and cut by Washington before joining the Pittsburgh Steelers as a backup in 2021. Following the season, he died after being struck by a truck while trying to cross an interstate. Scouts, Inc. draft rating: 90Pick overall: 1What the draft experts were saying: Murray is an aggressive playmaker with a strong arm, quick release and explosive mobility, yet he is also a sound decision-maker who stays poised under pressure and isn't easily rattled by mistakes. He throws the ball accurately from a variety of arm angles and excels at making off-balance throws. - Todd McShay, ESPNWhere they are now: While he might have been considered too small in previous generations, Murray was taken with the first pick of the 2019 draft and represents a new breed of athletic QBs in the NFL.Scouts, Inc. draft rating: 90Pick overall: 22What the draft experts were saying: Nick Saban is the best defensive mind in football and he had no answers for Manziel. That carries a lot of weight with NFL people, knowing he had no answer for Manziel in two football games. He's no guarantee, he's a wild card. But in a league that protects quarterbacks, he can have success. - Mel Kiper Where they are now: In two NFL seasons, he checked himself into rehab, was accused of assaulting his girlfriend, and was ultimately released after just 258 passes. He attempted a comeback in the CFL and spent time in multiple minor football leagues, most recently with the Zappers of the Fan Controlled League. He also recently said he is pursuing a professional golf career.Scouts, Inc. draft rating: 90Pick overall: 8What the draft experts were saying: Erratic performance has certainly hurt his draft stock. An extremely gifted athlete, Locker's production does not match his talent. He possesses a cannon for an arm, but he is not an efficient passer. At this point, his greatest asset is his athleticism and it is unclear if he will ever be a starting quarterback at the next level. - NFL.comWhere they are now: Locker spent four seasons with the Titans, starting 23 games. But after the 2014 season, he announced his retirement from the NFL, saying he no longer had the desire to play at the level required for the NFL.Scouts, Inc. draft rating: 90Pick overall: 26What the draft experts are saying: Jordan Love isn't without his warts but he possesses a high-level physical skill set and peaks on tape that reveal the ceiling of a potential dynamic NFL starting quarterback. His arm talent and mobility is perfect for the trends of today's NFL and there is no limitations to what he can do on the field. The full playbook is open for Love and then some. — Joe Marino, The Draft NetworkWhere they are now: Love is in Green Bay, waiting behind Aaron Rodgers to get his chance as the starter. It may come next season if Rodgers is traded to the Jets. He has appeared in nine games, starting one.Scouts, Inc. draft rating: 90Pick overall: 15What the draft experts were saying: Jones has an over-the-top throwing motion and feathery touch, and he consistently puts the ball where it needs to be. He shows good timing on crossing routes and leads his receivers so they have a better chance of catching the ball in stride and picking up yards after the catch. — Danny Kelly, The RingerWhere they are now: Jones has been the Patriots' starter since being drafted, leading them to the playoffs in his rookie season.Scouts, Inc. draft rating: 91Pick overall: 1What the draft experts were saying: Russell Wilson is the closest NFL comparison for Mayfield in our opinion, but there are still some obvious flaws in that comp. Mayfield is one of the most polarizing players in this class, in large part due to his outstanding football character and leadership but debatable maturity. In our opinion, Mayfield grades out as a good NFL starter but he clearly comes with some red flags (measureables, footwork, played in spread offense). - ESPN.comWhere they are now: The Browns surprised many by taking Mayfield with the first pick of the 2018 draft. The choice appeared to be a good one as Mayfield took over the starting job early in the season and led the Browns to six wins with exciting play. Before the 2022 season, he was traded to the Panthers. After five games, he was benched and later claimed off waivers by the Rams. After the season, he signed with the Bucs hoping to replace Tom Brady.Scouts, Inc. draft rating: 91Pick overall: 3What the draft experts were saying: At 6-foot-4, 230 pounds, with not elite but good arm strength, and the ability to move both in the pocket and to make plays down the field as a runner, he has a chance to add value and eliminate negative plays with his mobility as he develops as a passer. - Mel KiperWhere they are now: Bortles was a starter for five seasons with the Jaguars before being benched late in the 2018 season. He went 24-49 as a starter and never made a Pro Bowl. He has since spent time as a backup with the Rams, Broncos, Packers, and Saints, appearing in just three games. He announced his retirement in 2022. Scouts, Inc. draft rating: 91Pick overall: 11What the draft experts were saying: Fields is a sturdy, muscular signal-caller with a dynamic skill set. The Buckeyes passer throws with good velocity and a tight spiral, and is capable of delivering frozen ropes on deep outs and downfield bombs. He's accurate on the run, and consistently puts excellent touch on the ball, hitting his receivers in stride or leading them away from coverage. — Danny Kelly, The RingerWhere they are now: Fields replaced Andy Dalton as the Bears' starting quarterback after just two games. While the Bears are still losing more games than they are winning, Fields emerged in Year 2 as a player with a lot of promise, showing game-changing running ability and improvement in his throwing.Scouts, Inc. draft rating: 91Pick overall: 2What the draft experts were saying: With a body type that is as prototypical as they come and a background in reading the entire field and working through progressions, Wentz will immediately check a couple of boxes that many college quarterbacks won't be able to check. While his arm strength is OK, he can still make all the throws and he can make them with accuracy. - NFL.comWhere they are now: Wentz emerged as an MVP candidate in 2017, but a torn ACL cut his season short, and Nick Foles took over and led the Eagles to a Super Bowl win. Wentz was replaced by Foles again in 2018 for their playoff run. After a rough season in 2020, Wentz was traded to the Indianapolis Colts. After starting every game for the Colts in 2021, he was traded to the Commanders, but was then released after one season.Scouts, Inc. draft rating: 91Pick overall: 1What the draft experts were saying: He might need time adjusting to an NFL playbook coming from a wide-open system. He is one of the top two quarterbacks in this class and has the tools and acumen to develop into an above-average starter. - ESPN.comWhere they are now: Goff had a rough rookie season under Jeff Fisher but turned things around in his second season under rookie head coach Sean McVay. In 2017 and 2018, the Rams went 24-7 with Goff as a starter, he was named to two Pro Bowls and led them to a Super Bowl. After disappointing seasons in 2019 and 2020, Goff and his monster contract were traded to the Detroit Lions in exchange for Matthew Stafford.Scouts, Inc. draft rating: 92Pick overall: 10What the draft experts were saying: Rosen is the most polished quarterback in this class when he's at his best, and he has rare arm talent. But he was inconsistent in 2017 and dealt with a serious shoulder injury in 2016. His medical reports and interviews with teams at the combine will be extremely important. - Mel KiperWhere they are now: Rosen was inconsistent during his rookie season on a team without a lot of talent. With the first pick of the 2019 draft, the Cardinals took Kyler Murray. Rosen was traded the next day to the Dolphins, where he went 0-3 as a starter in 2019. He has since spent time as a backup with the 49ers, Falcons, and Browns throwing just 11 passes. The Browns cut him during the 2022 season.Scouts, Inc. draft rating: 92Pick overall: 7What the draft experts were saying: Likely be the biggest boom-or-bust quarterback prospect in the draft. Allen's size and arm talent are prototypical for early first-round picks, but it's rare to find a quarterback with such a low college completion rate become a successful pro. - NFL.comWhere they are now: Allen had a rough rookie campaign throwing the ball but did enough with his legs to show that the Bills can be patient with his arm and decision-making skills. Since then, Allen has emerged as one of the top quarterbacks in football, showing a remarkable improvement in accuracy and leading the Bills to the AFC Championship in 2020. They are now Super Bowl contenders each season.Scouts, Inc. draft rating: 92Pick overall: 3What the draft experts were saying: Lance is the best rushing signal-caller in the class, and while his small sample of playing time is limited, his ability to make any throw and stress defenses with his legs could make Denver a contender during his rookie contract. — Pro Football FocusWhere he is projected to be drafted: Lance was named the starter in his second season but suffered a season-ending ankle injury in the second game of 2022.Scouts, Inc. draft rating: 93Pick overall: 2What the draft experts were saying: Will face the same challenges that several quarterbacks before him have faced in terms of learning how to read defenses and go through progressions. The tape was less kind to Mariota than expected, but his size, athleticism and consistency of football character throughout his career are necessary traits in becoming a good-to-great quarterback. - NFL.comWhere they are now: After much debate about who should go first, Mariota was ultimately taken second overall behind Jameis Winston in 2015. After Mariota had a strong sophomore campaign with 26 touchdowns and nine interceptions, he regressed in Year 3 with 13 touchdowns and 15 INTs. In 2019, he was benched after six games. After spending two seasons as a backup with the Raiders, he was the starter for the Falcons in 2022. He is now a backup with the Eagles.Scouts, Inc. draft rating: 93Pick overall: 1What the draft experts were saying: There are the polarizing intangibles. Some question his maturity and ability to win over the locker room at the NFL level, while others point to his record as proof that he's an effective leader. - ESPN.comWhere they are now: Newton became one of the top QBs in the NFL, a three-time Pro Bowler, and the 2015 NFL MVP. He signed a five-year, $104 million contract before the 2015 season and led the team to the Super Bowl, where they lost to the Denver Broncos. After one season with the Patriots as Tom Brady's replacement, he returned to the Panthers but went unsigned in 2022. He recently worked out for scouts hoping to get another shot.Scouts, Inc. draft rating: 93Pick overall: 5What the draft experts are saying: Tagovailoa has an expert feel for the pocket, stepping up or away from pressure while keeping a balanced base and his eyes downfield. The junior quarterback doesn't have a rocket arm, but the ball jumps off his hands; he can hit deep outs with plenty of velocity and he throws a pretty deep ball. In the short and intermediate areas, he leads his receivers away from big hits or hits them perfectly in stride so they turn upfield and pick up extra yards. — Danny Kelly, The RingerWhere they are now: Tagovailoa eventually won the starting job for the Dolphins halfway through the season in 2020 but still found himself benched a few times in favor of backup Ryan Fitzpatrick. After some doubts about his NFL future, Tua has emerged as a valuable starting QB with a bright future.Scouts, Inc. draft rating: 93Pick overall: 2What the draft experts were saying: Wilson's athleticism, precision throwing from the pocket and on the run, and confident attitude will make him a much-watch NFL player in no time. — Chad Reuter, NFL.comWhere they are now: Wilson started 13 games in his rookie season and showed some signs of promise. However, he was benched mid-way through the 2022 season after he reportedly suffered from the yips. Scouts, Inc. draft rating: 94Pick overall: 3What the draft experts were saying: There are a lot of similarities between Darnold and [Philip] Rivers. They have similar builds with hitches in their throwing motions that make them a bit unorthodox. Both are pocket passers who throw the ball accurately with timing and precision. Both also are known to be good leaders, workers and teammates. - Walter FootballWhere they are now: Like many young QBs, Darnold was up and down through his first seasons in the NFL, but the Jets finally decided to move on from him in 2020, sending him to Carolina to make room for their next quarterback. In 2022, he replaced Baker Mayfield as the Panthers' starter mid-way through the season.Scouts, Inc. draft rating: 94Pick overall: 8What the draft experts were saying: Tannehill is a dynamic athlete at quarterback, so much so that he was a major contributor at receiver for his first two-plus years with the Aggies before becoming their starting signal-caller. In his early starts at quarterback, this NFL-sized prospect was more of a gunslinger, but he has now morphed into an effective and efficient passer in the pocket. - NFL.comWhere they are now: Tannehill started all but three games in his first five seasons with the Dolphins but missed the entire 2017 season with a knee injury and only reached the playoffs once. After the 2018 season, he was traded to the Titans, where he replaced Marcus Mariota as the starter after just two games. After the season, he re-signed with the Titans on a four-year, $118 million contract. He led the Titans to the playoffs in each of his first three seasons with the team.Scouts, Inc. draft rating: 94Pick overall: 1What the draft experts are saying: Burrow tallied 32 big-time throws (a college football best) but just nine turnover-worthy plays during the regular season, grading out tops among all quarterbacks both under pressure and on tight-window passes. The fearless demeanor he showed in the biggest moments in 2019 invites Tom Brady comparisons. — Danny Kelly, The RingerWhere they are now: Burrow was the top pick in the 2020 Draft and led the Bengals and their pass-heavy offense to the Super Bowl in just his second season.Scouts, Inc. draft rating: 96Pick overall: 10What the draft experts were saying: Gabbert has the frame, intangibles and arm strength teams look for. He is a tough leader who can play through pain and rally his teammates, and while he needs to improve his pocket mobility and ability to handle pressure he has the toughness and foot speed to do so. - ESPN.comWhere they are now: Gabbert was traded to the San Francisco 49ers after three seasons and right before the Jaguars drafted Blake Bortles. After three seasons as a part-time starter with San Francisco, Gabbert logged time with the Cardinals and Titans. He has spent the last three seasons as Tom Brady's backup with the Bucs.Scouts, Inc. draft rating: 97Pick overall: 2What the draft experts were saying: He's accurate, throws a fantastic deep ball, is a proven leader and has shown evaluators he's a QB first, athlete second. Great kid, great pick. - Mel KiperWhere they are now: After getting drafted by Washington and playing one of the most thrilling rookie seasons in recent memory, RG3's career was derailed by injury. He played seven seasons in the NFL and is now an analyst for ESPN.Scouts, Inc. draft rating: 97Pick overall: 1What the draft experts were saying: Despite his slim frame, he's tough as hell. Lawrence is fearless on the field, whether he's standing in the pocket or carrying the rock. — Danny Kelly, The RingerWhere they are now: Lawrence has started every game for the Jags in his first two seasons. His 17 interceptions led the NFL in his rookie season, but he significantly improved in his second season, his first under new head coach Doug Pederson.Scouts, Inc. draft rating: 97Pick overall: 1What the draft experts were saying: Winston scares the hell out of me, but he is better than the other guy [Mariota]. He is a player. I like him. He is not afraid. He tries to do too much, but just looks like a winner when he plays. - Anonymous NFL offensive coordinatorWhere they are now: Winston was the first pick of the 2015 draft and spent five interception-filled seasons with the Bucs. He is now a backup for the Saints.Scouts, Inc. draft rating: 97Pick overall: 1What the draft experts were saying: Very competitive and a strong leader. Extremely productive and successful in college. - NFL.comWhere they are now: Bradford was a journeyman quarterback as injuries set his career off course more than once. He did make $130 million in nine seasons, last playing with the Cardinals in 2018.Scouts, Inc. draft rating: 99Pick overall: 1What the draft experts were saying: [Talking to] everybody and anybody, I have never yet heard a dissenting vote about Andrew Luck...If he's not great, then everybody is wrong. Because nobody has stepped up and said Andrew Luck is slightly overrated, not as good as advertised, over-hyped, or this concerns me about his game. Nothing concerns anybody about Andrew Luck. - Mel KiperWhere they are now: Luck was lauded by some as the second-best QB prospect ever, behind John Elway, and early in his career, he appeared to be living up to the hype. He was a Pro Bowl QB each of his first three seasons as he led the Colts to the playoffs each year. After he played only 22 games over three seasons and missed the entire 2017 season with a shoulder injury, he erased the doubts by returning to his Pro Bowl level in 2018. However, he shocked the NFL world when he suddenly retired during the 2019 preseason. He has since returned to Stanford to pursue a graduate degree in education.
