12. Mac Jones, New England Patriots
“HOW DO YOU HAVE MAC JONES OVER TUA!?” “YOU CLOWN!” Yeah, yeah, yeah, say what you want, but Mac Jones has shown more in the NFL than Tua Tagovailoa has, and if I was starting a franchise today and had to pick between Jones and Tagovailoa, I am taking Jones without hesitation.
Jones has shown he can stay healthy, do what needs to be done, and manage a game to help get his team to the playoffs. He isn’t elite or anything, but he “does his job.”
11. Trevor Lawrence, Jacksonville Jaguars
If there was one ranking on this list that I would understand the argument against it, it would be this one. But it’s my personal list, so save your energy. I think Trevor Lawrence has all the tools to be a legitimate starting quarterback in the NFL. Everyone cries about Tagovailoa having Brian Flores; well, Lawrence had Urban Meyer…so remember, it can always be worse!
I expect Lawrence to make a massive leap in 2022 and showcase why he was the No. 1 overall pick.
10. Ryan Tannehill, Tennessee Titans
Ryan Tannehill, to me, is an average starting quarterback in the NFL. In the AFC, you can really see his flaws. His roster is loaded, and he holds them back. He isn’t a terrible quarterback, but he’s that guy you don’t think can ever win a Super Bowl.
9. Matt Ryan, Indianapolis Colts
The 2016 NFL MVP has finally got away from the dumpster fire Atlanta Falcons. Even though the Miami Dolphins should’ve drafted him, I do always enjoy watching this former Pennsylvania high school football player throw the rock in the NFL.
Math Ryan could be Indy’s missing piece, which could rejuvenate his career.
