Before the Cincinnati Bengals made Joe Burrow the No. 1 overall draft pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, there had been 15 QBs taken first in the last 25 years. Entering the 2020 NFL Draft, 24 quarterbacks have been drafted 1st overall in the Common Draft Era (since 1967). Of those 24, four have won an NFL MVP and six have won a Super Bowl MVP, but none since a Manning. Only Terry Bradshaw, John Elway and Peyton Manning have won both. Bradshaw sported a .677 winning percentage as a starter, with Elway just behind at .641.
Tom Brady's reign as New England Patriots quarterback has come to an end after 20 seasons. This leaves the team with a large hole to fill at quarterback.
The Patriots currently have two quarterbacks on the roster to work with. Last year's fourth round pick Jarrett Stidham is expected to be the starter as of right now. Stidham was drafted in the hopes of developing behind Brady for a few years before taking over. It appears that plan has moved up faster than expected.
The other quarterback on the roster is a familiar name in Brian Hoyer. After 12...
The 2020 NFL Draft is around the corner, teams have their board set, everyone is polishing their rankings, and I'm no different. This year I chose to put all my focus on the quarterback position, so I could allocate the time needed to make a fair and educated opinion on this quarterback class. Specifically, the top 10 quarterbacks.
In the upcoming days I will be posting individual articles of every quarterback in my watchlist, I haven't written on yet. The film and grading part of each one is set, only thing left is to...
Florida International University’s James Morgan has gained traction as a quarterback prospect in the 2020 NFL Draft. In recent weeks, the buzz surrounding the fifth-year senior has grown louder.
The top-tier of quarterback prospects for this draft includes Joe Burrow (LSU), Tua Tagovailoa (Alabama) and Justin Herbert (Oregon). From there, analysts and fans start to argue the merits of players like Jordan Love (Utah State) and Jacob Eason (Washington).
Morgan remains outside that class of quarterback, but he’s been steadily climbing the ranks over the last several weeks.
Almost every player from every draft has a person that they remind me of. However, I have two comps. One of them what their career could be if they succeed, and the other if their career wasn't as good. Here are my comps for the top-five quarterback comps in this year's class.
Quarterback Comp: Justin Herbert

I see a lot of Bortles in Herbert. I liked Bortles...
Next quarterback up to analyze is none other than Tua Tagovailoa, Alabama's golden child. We all know the story, Jalen Hurts was struggling a bit vs Clemson in the national championship so Tua takes over in the second half then throws the game-winning 41-yard TD pass in overtime.
Then he played lights out all year (only losing to Clemson in the national championship rematch) which got people so excited all you could see where signs "Tank for Tua" for all NFL teams that began the year losing.
We will start this quarterback scouting report series with the biggest name this year, a player who has the #1 pick as a near-lock, Joe Burrow. Joe Burrow has had the spotlight around him even as a backup at Ohio State. The former 4-star recruit played some snaps as redshirt freshman and sophomore at Ohio State but ended up transferring to LSU as a graduate after narrowly losing the quarterback battle to Dwayne Haskins who went on to become a first-round pick. They were really neck and neck before Joe Burrow broke his hand in August that...
The 2020 NFL Draft is coming. 2019 College football season is in the books, all the players have declared and we've got a glimpse of draft season with the All-Star games. Unless you are the Chiefs or 49ers, teams have begun to shape up their draft boards, so we'll look at how the quarterback tiers are shaping up.
This year, my watchlist of quarterbacks has gone up to 17 players that I will be creating scouting reports for my readers. When the draft comes, you'll be familiarized with every draftable quarterback your team might take and feel a...
With April 23rd nearing, the 2020 NFL Draft quarterbacks not named Joe Burrow are all wondering where they might end up. If you're not a Bengals fan and hope to draft a quarterback, who do you want?
Of the 2020 NFL Draft quarterbacks, Justin Herbert is my second-ranked quarterback not named Joe. He's got some of the best physical tools for his position of anyone in this draft. And he can move. Like a gaselle.
Herbert evades an edge pass-rusher and converts...
With the 2020 NFL Draft quickly approaching, it seems more and more likely that a quarterback will be the No. 1 pick. Drafting a quarterback first overall has happened 33 times in the 53 years of the NFL Draft in the common era.
Halfbacks were once the most sought after collegiate players, being drafted No. 1 six times in the first ten years. But in recent years, drafting a quarterback has become the way to go. 15 times in the last 25 years a quarterback has gone No. 1 overall.
