22. Tua Tagovailoa, Miami Dolphins
Tua showed this season that he is a limited player. His arm is not very strong, but he is accurate and a good game manager. He helped get the Dolphins to nine wins, but the injuries remain a big concern with him. I would love to see a fully-healthy season of Tua to see what he can do.
21. Teddy Bridgewater, Denver Broncos
Just like Tua, Bridgewater is a limited player that lacks arm strength and explosive plays. He is a game manager that does not turn the ball over often (8 turnovers in 14 games). If he has a great coach and roster around him, he can lead you to the playoffs. If not, you will most likely be picking in the top 10.
20. Jared Goff, Detroit Lions
Goff and the Detroit Lions had a very difficult start to the season (0-10-1) but finished the season 3-3. There is something to be said about Goff’s struggles without Sean McVay but he still has enough traits to lead a good roster to the playoffs.
19. Jalen Hurts, Philadelphia Eagles
Hurts is a dangerous runner but no one fears him when he is forced to throw. He had 16 touchdown passes in 15 games and against playoffs teams he was 0-5 this year. In other words, whenever the Eagles are facing a better team and are forced to throw, they lose. If he does not develop as a passer I am not sure he will be starting in Philadelphia beyond next season.
18. Mac Jones, New England Patriots
Jones had the most success amongst all first-round quarterbacks. But, that was mostly due to the team that drafted him. The Patriots had a great run game and defense making Jones’ responsibility solely to manage the game. He didn’t pass much. For a rookie in his first season though, he was quite impressive.
