Quarterbacks have always been the talk of the NFL, and there is no shortage of star power in this position this year. Just consider The 10 best signal callers of 2022, a catch titled old Tom Brady, but it ‘s full of young rising game makers. But what happens when the big names fall? Injuries take their toll every year and unfortunately this includes QB’s position.
But which teams are best prepared for a loss under the center? Here’s an overview of the best backups:
Note. QBs are listed more (33) than teams (32) because we expect at least one Baker Mayfield or Jimmy Garoppolo to be replaced and hired before the 2022 season.
We rank the recent high draft choices (from 2020) apart from the others, just because they differ so much from Career 2. For example, if our starter went down, we could play Jordan Plus more than Andy Dalton, for example. However, we could also prefer a proven veterinarian for one or two important starts. So we would rank the young people as follows:
6. Matt Corral (Panthers)
He seems to need the current and mobility, but how soon can / will he settle into the NFL?
5. Desmond Ridder (Falcons)
Separating him from the Falconsi building will be a challenge. Is his self-confidence expressed in consistency?
4. Jordan Love (Packers)
We’ve only seen him play one game and he’s still developing his vision, but at the age of 23, with a good height and a legal hand, we still like his potential as a big game feeder.
3. Malik Willis (Titans)
Like Love, he is almost unknown, but he also has some strange athletic qualities. In his case, it’s not just about the laser arm, but also the electric legs. Such gifts can hide other flaws.
2. Kenny Pickett (Steelers)
He is widely regarded as a safe rather than a special prospect, but the guy did a lot of good things in and around Pittsburgh and could start as a starter in the playoffs with the Steelers team.
1. Tyler Huntley (Ravens)
No, he’s not Lamar Jackson, but he’s the perfect substitute in Baltimore, where he’s been shown in limited sizes that he can confidently throw and make room on the ground. It’s not so bad to have athlete to fulfill your emergency.
The best of vets
10. Tyrod Taylor (Giants)
New York pays too much, given that in recent years it has had difficulty staying healthy even from the bench and is not very precise, despite its tendency to feed short areas. Nevertheless, he has been a hard-working beginner in the past and can move.
9. Andy Dalton (Saints)
He hasn’t posted a winning record as a QB seven years. Despite his increasingly “safer” approach, he still throws a lot of beak. But you can’t teach the initial experience of 148 games, and he’s proven talent around him.
8. Jacoby Brissett (Browns)
Like Taylor and Dalton, he has somehow managed to be both conservative and relatively inefficient over time. However, he has adapted quickly to sudden career changes and has shown that with Colts he can be on the verge of a well-supported play-off caliber.
7. Case Keenum (Invoices)
Keenum has a problem with his shotgun style, but he also prolongs the games and wins over his teammates in the same way. The real man after running in Minnesota and Denver would have been a bigger contingency plan for Browns in 2022, who chose Brissett to replace Deshaun Watson’s likely suspension.
6. Taylor Heinicke (Commanders)
In 2022, Washington had the full experience of Heinicke: energetic, exciting and vibrant. He is best suited for running or short range attacking, but his mobility and willingness to try big throws make him one of the most tempting emergency starters.
5. Gardner Minshew (Eagles)
Size and hand power may never exist, but this type is the prototype No. 2, which is striking, flashy athleticism and boasting a fairly thorough touch. With 27 rebuilt Eagles and Jaguars teams in his career in 27 games, he has thrown 42 touchdowns and only 12 selections.
4. Nick Foles (Colts)
His disappearance in 2021 is an indictment against Bears, who preferred the more expensive Andy Dalton as Justin Fields’ predecessor. Foles and his big hand are shaky and he needs protection. However, few reserve QBs have been calmer, accumulated and ready to summon narrow throws quickly.
3. Teddy Bridgewater (Dolphins)
He has never been more than a full-time player who offers a solid hand in big throws. However, he is loved, generally accurate, mostly avoids killing ball losses and has led several winning series in a talented line-up. Most teams would like to be in their locker rooms until they step down to the center for only a select number of games.
2. Baker Mayfield (Browns)
He’s just starting the material. Yes, he has been on a rocky trajectory, becoming underestimated and torn by the brave sloppiness of a Cleveland man for four years. His ceiling could be like a blow to a difficult approach that takes the pressure off his good but striped hand. But there is no doubt that at the age of 26, he still belongs somewhere as the number one finalist.
1. Jimmy Garoppolo (49ers)
Like Mayfield, who plans to relocate before the start of the season, Jimmy G has worked to the fullest as a middle-level beginner, achieving more success when the burden is not on his hands but on the system in which he plays the goalkeeper. He has also struggled to stay healthy. And yet he is at his best a prototype pocket feeder who can perform all the throws with deep playoff experience.
These men make up the majority of the NFL’s reserve QBs and, frankly, don’t separate them much. Sure, you can consider one or the other, but at the end of the day, you’re especially hopeful that they won’t have to see any longer activities. They are listed in order of preference:
Colt McCoy (cardinals), Drew Lock / Geno Smith (Seahawks), Chad Henne (chiefs), Chase Daniel (chargers), CJ Beathard (Jaguars), Brandon Allen (Bengals), Josh Johnson / Brett Rypien (Broncos), Kyle Allen (Texans), Blaine Gabbbert (Buccaneers), Trevor Siemian (Bears), Brian Hoyer (Patriots), Joe Flacco (Jets), Jarrett Stidham (Raiders), Cooper Rush (cowboys), John Wolford (rams), Sean Mannion (Vikings), David Blough (Lions)
