Which NFL QBs are on the bubble for 2018?

Aug 10, 2021 News

The 2018 NFL draft is set for Feb. 11.

Here are some of the more intriguing quarterbacks on the list.

1.

Christian Hackenberg, QB, Penn State: The Jets are the only team with two top-five picks in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Hackenberg is the No. 3 overall pick, which will be a great surprise to most.

He has great size (6-foot-4, 214 pounds) and has great arm strength (40-yard dash time of 4.73 seconds).

He also has the mobility to stretch the field and be a threat from the pocket.

He is a good athlete, too, with a 37-inch vertical jump, which ranks in the top 10 for quarterbacks.

He was a three-year starter at Penn State and was a first-team All-Big Ten selection in 2016.

2.

Jared Goff, QB/C, California: Goff is the top-ranked quarterback in the class and the best passer the Rams will have this season.

He will have the opportunity to prove himself against some of college football’s best teams.

Goff is an elite athlete, with the speed and athleticism to make it hard for opposing defenses to stop him from throwing.

He also possesses good accuracy and arm strength, which should allow him to run the football.

3.

Sam Darnold, QB (6’3/220), USC: Darnolds success has been limited by injuries.

He missed the first four games of the season with an ankle injury and has been out of the lineup since.

But the junior is ready to take on a big-time program and play on a national stage.

He showed flashes of greatness in the Pac-12 title game, including throwing for a career-high 367 yards and two touchdowns.

He may not have the elite size of Goff, but he has the skill set to be an elite quarterback in a division with an elite defense.

4.

Mitch Trubisky, QB: The second overall pick in the 2017 draft, Trubiski is the most dynamic quarterback in this draft class.

Trubism is a mobile passer with a quick release, accurate throwing motion and a strong arm.

He uses his body to make throws and will get his team into the end zone.

5.

Connor Cook, QB /C, Michigan State: Cook has the potential to be the best player in the draft, but the Spartans lost their starting quarterback to graduation last season.

Cook is the perfect candidate to be a No. 1 overall pick and a potential star of the future.

He needs to prove he can be a consistent option for a team that is not rebuilding.

6.

Treon Harris, QB.

DE, Ohio State: Harris has the size to be good against the run and the athleticism to be one of the top edge rushers in the nation.

He can get to the quarterback quickly and can be an effective pass rusher.

7.

Jake Locker, QB | RB, Alabama: Locker has all the tools to be great.

He just needs to put it all together and prove he is a viable option for the NFL.

8.

Ryan Switzer, QB; RB, Oklahoma: Switzer was a fifth-round pick in 2017 and has the talent to be among the top players in this class.

He only has a year of college experience, but has enough athleticism and size to play in the NFL if he can continue to improve his mechanics.

9.

Josh Allen, WR/WR, Alabama (No. 9 overall): The fifth-year senior has been working hard in camp and is expected to go early in the second round.

He’s the best receiver in the 2019 draft class and could be a first team All-American in 2019.

10.

DeShone Kizer, QB(No. 8 overall): Kizer is a strong-armed passer who has great accuracy and is a great pocket passer.

He had a very productive rookie season with the Bears and could go in the first round.

11-16.

Teddy Bridgewater, QB — Florida State: Bridgewater has a lot of talent, but his inconsistency has led to criticism.

Bridgewater’s numbers have improved over the last couple of seasons and the Seminoles should have a chance to win a national championship.

12.

Sam Ehlinger, RB, Arizona State: Ehlinger is a solid runner and a good blocker, which is something the Cardinals need in their offense.

He should be a top-10 running back in the upcoming season.

13.

Jake Browning, OT/DE, Notre Dame: Browning is the best interior lineman in the country and has tremendous size.

He moves well, has good strength and can play in multiple positions.

14.

Jaron Browning Jr., OT/NT, Oklahoma State: Brownings size will be an issue against NFL offensive tackles, but there is some potential for him to become a first round pick.

15.

Josh Rosen, QB–USC: Rosen has had some issues in his first two seasons at
