11. Mac Jones (Patriots)

Doesn't Mac Jones' rookie season feel like years ago? That's how poor Jones' sophomore year went last year. While Jones didn't do himself many favors with his performance, it's hard to criticize him too much given the Patriots had Matt Patricia calling plays and Joe Judge coaching the QB room. We're expecting a bounce back year from the former No. 15 overall pick, but he has his fair share of doubters.

10. Brock Purdy/ Sam Darnold (49ers)

Whom the 49ers start in Week 1 likely hinges on Brock Purdy's recovery from elbow surgery. Regardless if it's Purdy or Sam Darnold, San Francisco's quarterback situation is nothing to write home about. Now that the league has a year of film on Purdy don't be shocked if 2022's Mr. Irrelevant takes a step back. If he doesn't then we'll know for sure that he belongs in a different tier of quarterback.

9. Matthew Stafford (Rams)

It might seem cruel that we have Stafford, who won a Super Bowl just two seasons ago, ranked so low, but he hasn't been elite in years. Further, Stafford led the NFL with 17 interceptions during the Rams' championship run and did his best to give the SB away against the Bengals.

Last year wasn't much better for Stafford, as he threw eight interceptions (with just 10 touchdowns) in nine starts before he was placed on season-ending injured reserve because of a spinal cord contusion.
