QUARTERBACK RANKING 2022 NFL DRAFT
For a few years prior to the 2021 draft, it was always expected that Trevor Lawrence would be the number 1 pick in the QB class. This year’s class is very different with no slam dunk best prospect, although there are five prospects who could be taken in the first round.
The tentative presumptive top prospect is Oklahoma’s Spencer Rattler, who despite lacking size has managed to put up great stats who has been compared to have a talent level on par with Kyler Murray and Baker Mayfield and benefits from being a more traditional pro-style quarterback. Sam Howell the top signal-caller for North Carolina is the player most likely to displace Rattler as the top prospect in the class. This 6 foot 2 225 pound player possesses a strong arm, is a powerful runner, and has decent dual-threat qualities - he has put some spectacular stats, passing for 7227 yds over the last 25 games.
After the top two, there is a slight drop-off consisting of three players, the super athletic Malik Willis, the traditional pro-style QB from USC Kedon Slovis, and Desmond Ridder the only top prospect with ideal size (6 foot 4) for the position.
