  1. Mac Jones only had devonta smith, jaylen waddle got hurt in 4 games so. He will only have 2 first round receivers technically even tho he played with 1 for the whole season

  2. History will tell you at least half of these qbs will be total busts, and another third will not be good enough to be franchise QBs. People always overhyped QBs coming out every year.

  3. Man all this mahomes talk he ain’t mahomes y’all persuading my team to make the wrong decision fields will be better then Wilson n is currently better

  4. That's Zachs ceiling tho. Fields ceiling isn't a "more athletic dak" much higher than that lol. Sad that these the dudes who give people information on these main stream sports videos yet guarantee they're all wrong. Yikes lol. Find your own takes don't listen to these dudes

  5. Make it less about the QB and more about the supporting cast. This conversation will be less annoying when we see what teams take who. Then we can really decide and not make speculations like we are now.

  6. Why do these guys keep talking about mobile quarterbacks when are we going to learn that's not what wins super bowls that doesn't really play a big part it's exciting play but not so much equalling winning play look at the guy who won the last Super Bowl Billy's mobile quarterback in fact hes been to what 10 super bowls… I rather have a guy who could go through his reads who could make sharp throws get the Baul where needs but yes a mobile quarterback does make things exciting but also leads to more injury prone….. just saying

  7. Before I watch im gonna guess that they're going to say the black dude is like another black dude and the two white dudes are like two other white dudes.

  8. Trevor Lawrence is just a given? I think the hype will just be hype. I don't see it with Trevor Lawrence on tape. I'm not saying he is going to be a terrible QB, but I don't think this kid is the next great player. Justin Fields is tough because he is better than Dwayne Haskins based off of college tape. Fields is clearly smarter, but if I had to make a comparison, I would compare Justin Fields potentially to Donovan McNabb, but with better arm strength, and overall physical ability. McNabb won games, but never passed for over 4k yards though. I think Fields could put up numbers surpassing McNabb as well, and I think he could take a team to the Super Bowl more than once. In fact I think Fields makes the 50k club in passing yards when his career is over. Only 11 players have surpassed 50k passing yards. I think this young man could do it.

  9. Lets just make the comparison now. Zach Wilson is a better version of Steve Young. The last time BYU put out a quality QB he won Super Bowls with the Niners. Don't hate on Steve Young either. He missed his first 6 seasons in the NFL as a starter. He still put up 202 touchdown passes in 8 seasons. Young was a mobile QB who could pass on the run better than most in the league at the time. I think Wilson could be better than Young ever was, and that's not bad at all. Young ranks 39th all time in passing yards. That's not bad considering he didn't play six seasons. From 91'- 98' Young passed for 26,783 yards, and 195 touchdowns. Those are great numbers for that era of football. Wilson could most certainly put up numbers just as good, or better, potentially.

  10. Poor man's Patrick Mahomes to Jimmy Garropolo is a huge gap in names. Garropolo was a late 2nd round pick and has needed to be carried plus is injury-prone

  11. Fields’ Floor: Mobile Dwayne Haskins
    Fields’ Ceiling: MVP Cam Newton(Every Year)
    Lawrence’s Floor: Rookie Year Justin Herbert(Every Year)
    Lawrence’s Ceiling: Mobile Peyton Manning
    Wilson’s Floor: Matthew Stafford
    Wilson’s Ceiling: Russell Wilson
    Lance’s Floor: Jameis Winston
    Lance’s Ceiling: More Athletic Patrick Mahomes
    Jones’ Floor: Jared Goff
    Jones’ Ceiling: Eli Manning
