The NFL Draft featured Blake Bortles, Johnny Manziel, Teddy Bridgewater, Jimmy Garoppolo, Derek Carr, Zack Mettenberger, and AJ McCarron. Here is where they will be in the depth chart.
Blake Bortles: Jacksonville Jaguars
Bortles will need some experience, even though he has a good skill set and IQ. Chad Henne is really the guy that Gus Bradley wants to start, and he wants to give Bortles time to develop a bit.
Prediction: Bortles starts by Week 5 vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
Johnny Manziel: Cleveland Browns
Johnny Football, without Josh Gordon, will need to step up, and Brian Hoyer is predicted to lose the job to Johnny Football. Manziel is begging for the job, and he definitely is not Rookie of the Year.
Prediction: Johnny Football still starts in Week 1 vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
Teddy Bridgewater: Minnesota Vikings
Teddy Bridgewater. Adrian Peterson. Cordarrelle Patterson. Kyle Rudolph. Greg Jennings. This team is destined for the playoffs. There is not much competition in Minneapolis, so Bridgewater has the easiest time of all of these QBs.
Prediction: Bridgewater starts in Week 1 @ Rams
Jimmy Garoppolo: New England Patriots
New England has the perfect backup for Brady. Brady said that he may consider retirement in the next few years, so Garoppolo would be the perfect fit as the starter come rebuilding mode.
Prediction: Garoppolo starts in Week 17 vs. Buffalo Bills
Derek Carr: Oakland Raiders
Carr will have to battle Matt Schaub and Terrelle Pryor, who are probably the 2 worst QBs football fans have ever seen (I’ve never seen worse). Derek Carr has an easy path to success.
Prediction: Carr starts Week 1 @ NY Jets
Zack Mettenberger: Tennessee Titans
Mettenberger has the strongest arm of them all, but will he start? Jake Locker will give him a tough test. Locker is the player whom many fans and players see as a franchise QB, but with coach Ken Whisenhunt, it’s worth dodging the bullet soon.
Prediction: Mettenberger starts Week 1 @ Kansas City Chiefs.
AJ McCarron: Cincinnati Bengals
The Bengals said that they think McCarron will be the starter, yet they do not want to get rid of Andy Dalton. After what Dalton did last year in the AFC Wild Card Round against the Chargers, the Bengals may be ready to part ways with him.
Prediction: McCarron starts Week 1 @ Baltimore Ravens
