Rattler has been pretty bad this year, he actually got benched. He will for sure still be drafted but I'm not sure he is QB1 at this point.

Having the future QB sit for multiple years doesn't work anymore. If you have a starter making 35M a year, now you've drafted a QB in the first round making 8M a year. Now you're paying a guy what would be starter money at another position to not play, while you've still got a good starter. Then you've gotta hope the starter mentors the rookie and declines enough or retires to where it makes sense to have the young guy play. This is exactly what the Packers are dealing with now. Plus if you have a good starter your team isn't likely to pick high enough to get a future franchise QB without giving up additional picks. Now you've spent potentially multiple first round picks on a guy who may not play for 2-3 years.

Then when he does finally play after 2-3 years are done you have to hope he is good. If he's not, it's all that money and draft capital wasted. And if he is good, you've only got 2 years of him playing on a cheap rookie contract before you need to pay him 40m a year. It shrinks your championship window.

I'd argue guys like Rodgers are the outlier. It's much better nowadays to let the guy start and then cut your losses, like the Cardinals did going from Rosen to Murray, and now they look like real contenders.

Same old story, it all comes down to money. I guess it doesn?t make sense paying a guy ridiculous money to sit on the bench.

Makes you wonder what would have happened if some of yesterday?s guys were drafted today. Terry Bradshaw and John Elway wouldn?t have made it to Canton, the pair of them were dreadful when they started in the NFL.

I think there will be a few twists and turns regarding the current crop of quarterbacks coming out of college. Last year Justin Fields stock suddenly dropped and Zack Wilson appeared from nowhere.

Yep, always boils down to money. With starting QBs being paid more and more of a % of the cap it doesn't make sense to pay both a starter and a highly-drafted rookie.

Yeah, Rattler has struggled. I think he bought into the hype. If he keeps his starting job, he will have to go off if he wants to be the first overall pick. At the moment, the top QB seems to be Corral or Willis.

Corral, who the hell is that guy, where did he come from?

He's the starter for Ole Miss. He's a redshirt junior.

Corral made a huge leap last year, and he has been performing well this year. My money would be on him if Rattler losing his starting job. Willis is from a very small school, and Howell hasn't had that great of year after his weapons all went pro after last season.

Looking at the mock drafts for the 2022 draft and a lot of them don?t have a quarterback going before pick 11. Is the crop this year that bad?

At this point, pretty much. But they always rise late.

Seems like that happens all the time and then 3 of the top 5 picks are all QBs. Teams that need a QB don't want a potential franchise QB get away because he's projected to go at 12 and they pick at 5.

Exactly. This year might be a little different since there does not seem to be a clear cut leader at QB, but even Goff and Wentz went one and two in their weak class.
