A bunch of NFL teams that need a quarterback this year are screwed

 

Mark Sanchez is one of the best available free agents. NFL teams looking to acquire a starting quarterback this offseason might have to get creative.The free agency market is as thin, and the quarterback crop in the 2015 NFL Draft is as shallow as it's been in years.NFL Network draft expert Mike Mayock called quarterback position "one of the weakest in the 2015 NFL Draft" on Thursday night. Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota are the only quarterbacks with 1st-round grades, and neither are considered can't-miss prospects.

 

Winston has seen his stock rise over the last few weeks, to the point where he's now the consensus No. 1-overall pick. But his off-field issues are still a serious concern, and Mayock compared his turnover-prone playing style to that of Jay Cutler, saying, "He has no conscience whatsoever. He'll let it rip."Even assuming Winston and Mariota pan out, there's simply not enough well-regarded quarterbacks (either free agents or college prospects) to fill all the open positions in the NFL.

 

Here are the teams that most need a quarterback this offseason :

  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers, No. 1 pick (current starter: Mike Glennon)
  • Tennessee Titans, No. 2 pick (current starter: Zach Mettenberger)
  • New York Jets, No. 6 pick (current starter: Geno Smith)
  • Cleveland Browns, No. 12 pick (current starter: Johnny Manziel?)
  • Houston Texans, No. 16 pick (current starter: Case Keenum)
  • Buffalo Bills, no 1st-round pick (current starter: E.J. Manuel)

The Rams and Redskins could very well be on that list too.That's at least six teams in desperate need of a quarterback. Once Mariota and Winston are off the board, the remaining teams will either have to take a flyer on a less-renowned prospect, or sign a free agent.

 

The latter option isn't exactly intriguing when you look at the free agents available :

  • Josh McCown
  • Brian Hoyer
  • Ryan Mallett
  • Mark Sanchez
  • Colt McCoy
  • Jake Locker
  • Shaun Hill

All of those guys saw significant playing time in 2014. None of them had above-average years. McCown, who the Buccaneers cut after signing him a year ago, is probably the best free agent.

It's a bad year to need a quarterback.

Sweet Pic of Bethany in your sig.  

 

The Jets suck and will never find a QB.  

 

Great thread!

How is a game and a half significant playing time for Mallett?

 

Not saying the idea that there is no QB fixes availible this year but they don't have to just make stuff up to support their position.

Let's face it every AFC team without a QB with the last name of Brady, manning, and Rothlisberger might as well forfeit all of their games because these are the only guys allowed to be in a Super Bowl for the past 15 seasons with two exceptions

Russel Wilson wasn't Russel Wilson - 3rd round pick.  Our franchise might be out there.

I don't know much about these guys but there just is a feel to this QB class. Something in the air smells like one of the top 2 is a bust, the other is meh to ok, and one of the #3 to #8 ranked QBs becomes a stud that fans of every QB-needy team later says they should have seen it coming and taken earlier than anyone then imagined. Like people who think it was a no-brainer to take Wilson with our 2nd round pick in 2012 or Flacco with our #6 overall pick in 2008.

Sure either would have been the obviously better move in hindsight, given the awful busts we took instead (Stephen Hill and Vernon Gholston - ugh), and picking Flacco would have meant keeping our #1 and #2 picks the following year instead of drafting Sanchez. But even the teams that drafted them felt they were unworthy of those higher picks. Seattle passed on Wilson in the 2nd round (with the pick we traded to them when we moved up for Hill). Four years earlier, Baltimore passed on Flacco at #8, trading down to #26 when Jax offered threw in two 3rds and a 4th from the same draft. Meaning they potentially missed out on a franchise QB they really liked for a pair of 3rd rounders and a 4th rounder. So these obvious shoulda-done moves weren't nearly obvious to the teams that DID ultimately draft them.

Cutler clearly has his flaws as a QB but before the draft approached in 2006, one QB (Leinart) was the obvious #1-3 overall pick, Young locked in between #3 and #20 if he took a serious tumble, and Jay Cutler was a 3rd (maybe a 2nd) round prospect from Vanderbilt. He shot up after the senior bowl/workouts and the combine, though he still ended up being the 3rd QB taken. Despite his flaws he was clearly the best of the three by a gargantuan margin.

Just something to me says neither of the top 2 end up being the top QB in the draft class. It's just a wishy-washy feeling though, based on the uncertainty surrounding both Winston and Mariotta rather than a concrete opinion about one or more of the other guys.

It's scripted.
