Quarterback Rankings 2021 NFL Draft

QUARTERBACK PROSPECT RANKING 2021 NFL DRAFT

With nearly half the teams in the NFL without a solid long-term starter at the quarterback position, it only increases the chances of QBs coming off the board early in this 2021 NFL Draft. Fortunately for teams deprived of a quality signal-caller this year, the pickings are rich. With five prospects likely to go in the first round, possibly all by the 12th pick!

You would have to have spent the last couple of years in a coma not to have heard of the top prospect, Trevor Lawrence, who is as close to a lock at number one as it is possible to be and regarded as the best QB prospect to enter the draft since Andrew Luck.

He is followed by Zach Wilson, who has moved up draft boards over the last few weeks and now is being projected going number two overall to the Jets. The top of the Quarterback class is rounded out with former Five-star recruit Justin Fields, Division 2 superstar Trey Lance and Texas standout Mac Jones.

YOUR NFL GM VS. AUTODRAFT

Ever wondered what would happen if your favorite team just went into the draft without doing any independent research, without studying hours of tape, or even listening to team scouts? Well, after many years of watching NFL teams making numerous questionable ‘reaches’ in the draft, and totally ignoring the prevailing wisdom - we decided to re-examine all your team’s drafts over the last ten years.
The results are (sometimes) interesting – but what it really does show, is that on the whole - NFL teams would have done better by putting their feet up and just switching on autodraft.
Take a look, we have every team's draft since 2011 rated.
