Where do the quarterbacks from the 2021 NFL Draft rank after two seasons?
The 2021 NFL Draft has already proven to be one of the most memorable in recent memory as there is a myriad of storylines to look back on and reminisce. Remember when Zach Wilson was the consensus #2 pick because of a viral throw in shorts?
Or how about how everyone thought the 49ers traded up to the #3 spot and gave up 3 1st round picks to draft Mac Jones? Trevor Lawrence was the favorite to go #1 for over a year before the NFL Draft, but he definitely had a rookie season that left some Jacksonville fans questioning if he was truly the golden child promised.
One could also quickly forget all the Kyle Trask love people had just because he’s sitting behind Tom Brady on the Buccaneers now, but some still hold hope that he will be the successor after Brady.
As a quick recap of the most notable QB’s taken in the 2021 NFL Draft:
- Trevor Lawrence was drafted by the Jaguars (Pick 1)
- Zach Wilson was drafted by the Jets (Pick 2)
- Trey Lance was drafted by the 49ers (Pick 3)
- Justin Fields was drafted by the Bears (Pick 11)
- Mac Jones was drafted by the Patriots (Pick 15)
- Davis Mills was drafted by the Texans (Pick 67)
Disclaimer before you continue, I am only ranking the quarterbacks that have had significant playing time in the NFL to this point, as is only fair. In making this list, I simply thought, which QB would I want as a fan moving forward?
