16. Zach Wilson, New York Jets

In my opinion, Zach Wilson is the worst AFC starting quarterback heading into 2022. Wilson has potential for sure, but his rookie season was scary to watch, and he’s on the New York Jets.

I don’t know if the Jets will ever be able to help him reach his full potential, and for that reason, I am very low on him heading into his second season.

15. Davis Mills, Houston Texans

Some people may think I have Davis Mills too low on this list when he had the best rookie season out of any of the 2021 rookie quarterbacks, but I don’t see him being an elite guy.

His numbers weren’t bad for a rookie who didn’t play the whole year. However, I just don’t think he’s even close to being a middle-of-the-pack quarterback in the AFC.

14. Mitch Trubisky, Pittsburgh Steelers

It was hard to rank Mitch Trubisky on this list, mainly because we have no clue how he will play now that he is starting again (for now). I flip-flopped between him and the quarterback ranked above him but ultimately decided I still do not believe in Trubisky.

13. Tua Tagovailoa, Miami Dolphins

I am sure many of you will take this ranking well… and call me names… or tell me I know nothing about football… and guess what, that’s fine. You’re entitled to your own opinion, but I’d just ask you to stop lying to yourself.

There is no shot that Tua Tagovailoa is a top 10 quarterback in the AFC right now, and even though he’s not the worst, he’s close. I know, I know, Mike McDaniel will save him! Well, I want to see it first because right now, I only see a below-average quarterback with injury concerns. I hope he moves up this list by the end of the season, but heading into 2022, Tua Tagovailoa is the 13th ranked AFC starting quarterback.
