It’s time for way too early 2020 NFL Draft quarterback rankings. Tua Tagovailoa tops the list (Butch Dill/Associated Press)

Can you believe that the college football season is almost here? That means it’s time to focus in on the 2020 NFL Draft. It’s never too early to go over some rankings for the upcoming draft. The 2020 NFL Draft on paper appears to be a great quarterback draft class. Let’s check out the way too early 2020 NFL Draft quarterback rankings.

1: Tua Tagovailoa (Alabama)

Tua Tagovailoa is the one quarterback who is I think is a Super Bowl winning type of guy. I’m on record for saying he will be Russell Wilson except better. There’s no downside to Tua except for the fact that he is left handed. I’m not sure that’s a bad thing either. His instincts are off the charts. The accuracy isn’t human. In his true Sophomore season, Tua completed 69 percent of his throws with a 43-6 TD – INT Ratio. Those numbers could have been higher too but he sat out a number of 2nd half because Alabama had such comfortable leads. I truly don’t see how the guy fails. Tagovailoa is such a unique talent and should be the hands down number one pick next year.

2: Justin Herbert (Oregon)

Just Herbert has made me waiver quite a bit. There’s a couple of game I watched him and he took my breath away. Then there were some guys where the Oregon quarterback was flat out awful. If you just put together his highlights, Herbert might be the best quarterback in the last 5 years. The problem is there is some bad to go with it.

Herbert completed less than 60 percent of his throws in 2018. That’s usually a red flag that ends up in bust city. The weird thing is he eclipsed that number as a Freshman and Sophomore. A bad end of the season slipped his stock. Still, the tools are all there. 6-foot-6, mobile, and has a cannon. He might end up being a rich man’s, Josh Allen.

3: Jake Fromm (Georgia)

Is Jake Fromm just a game manager or is he much more? I don’t think we truly know the answer to that question just yet. Fromm’s numbers were actually better than I expected. 30 touchdowns and 6 interceptions is legit. 67 percent is also a great number. Still, when you watch the games, the running game makes the Georgia offense go. Fromm threw for just 2,761 yards in 2018. 4,000 is what you need in the NFL. He’s well short of that in college.

I think we’re going to find out what Fromm is this year. I think his pure tools are above average. Not a special athlete or arm strength by any means. What I do see is great leadership and a good football player. Just how good is still a mystery but has shown he’s more than capable.

4: Jordan Love (Utah State)

I haven’t seen a ton of Jordan Love yet but I know that Utah State puts up points every week. This guy is a stat monster. Love completed 64 percent in 2018 along with a 32-6 TD-INT ratio. The only concern is he didn’t play great against better competition. I guess that’s to be expected at Utah State. He threw 2 interceptions and 0 touchdowns against Michigan State. I think Love is an interesting small school prospect. I could see him getting drafted fairly high. It’s a mixe bag but this guy has talent.

5: Jacob Eason (Washington)

I still don’t know what the deal is with Jacob Eason. He looks like a great quarterback but I haven’t actually seen it for a while. Eason lost his job to Fromm at Georgia. I don’t know if he’s even going to start at Washington. He does have a rocket but he hasn’t put it together yet. Could be a Christian Hackenberg. Could also turn the corner and become the best quarterback in program history.
