Way Too Early 2022 NFL Draft Quarterback Rankings
It’s never too early to talk draft, right? Why not get right into the 2022 NFL Draft with way too early quarterback rankings. This quarterback class won’t be nearly as loaded as the one this past year. However, there are some interesting prospects to keep tabs on. Let’s get right to it.
Honorable Mention: Alan Bowman
I don’t even know if Alan Bowman is going to start. However, the former Texas Tech product transferred to Michigan. If Bowman can bring that high powered air raid passing attack to the Big 10, he’s going to be noticed quickly. That’s my shot in the dark quarterback nobody is talking about. Maybe it works out. Maybe it doesn’t.
11: Dustin Crum (Kent State)
Yes, let’s give some love to the Kent State quarterback. Over the last two years he has a 32-4 TD to INT ratio while completing around 70%. Crum will return for his redshirt senior season. Let’s see if Crum just blows up. He can make throws.
10: Phil Jurkovec (Boston College)
Phil Jurkovec has kept Boston College relevant. He sort of reminds me of a poor man version of the old Ben Roethlisberger. Did that make sense? 6-foot-5, big body, and enough gas on his ball to get the job done. I want to see him raise that completion percentage in 2020. He’s just not a polished passer yet. Very Trask like.
9: Tyler Shough (Texas Tech)
We just need to see more. Tyler Shough has the tools but transfered out of Oregon quick. He looked like a disaster with the Ducks but we haven’t see enough. Big, athletic, and toolsy. Now it’s time to produce.
8: Dillon Gabriel (Central Florida)
The high flyin lefty Hawaiian is so fun to watch. I’m not sure he translates but I’m not doubting him. The 32-4 TD to INT ratio a year ago is impressive. He just needs to become more efficient. He’s not a keyhole guy. Ball placement needs work.
7: Kedon Slovis (USC)
Noodle arm but can put the ball on a dot. Not the most athletic guy in the world. I would call him a rich man Cody Kessler. The pure upside just isn’t special. But wouldn’t be surprised if he sticks around the league like a better version of Matt Barkley.
6: JT Daniels (Georgia)
I don’t even know what to do with JT Daniels at this point. Starts right away for USC, stinks, gets hurt, transfers, fails to win the job, lights the world on fire. Got no clue. Need a bigger sample size. We’re going to find out this year.
5: Carson Strong (Nevada)
Get ready. If there is anyone that has a chance to make that Zach Wilson type leap, it’s this guy right here. He’s got some smoke in that gun and completed over 70% of his throws a year ago. 6-foot-5 too with enough athletic traits.
4: Matt Corral (Ole Miss)
Two things can be true. Matt Corral is a total lunatic. Matt Corral is also uber talented. If Drew Lock with a slightly better arm played more drunk than he already plays, it would look like Corral. Guy is a total mess but god he’s sick sometimes… in a good way. Ole Miss is going to be fun to watch this year. You have no idea where the ball is going but god he looks damn good doing it.
3: Malik Willis (Liberty)
Former Auburn transfer Malik Willis is going to be a hot name. Hugh Freeze aside, Willis has major duel threat ability. He ran for 944 yards while posting a 20-4 TD to INT. I saw maybe one half of Willis this year but it didn’t take long to notice there’s some ability there. I will keep a much closer eye this upcoming season.
2: Sam Howell (North Carolina)
Sam Howell probably has too much buzz right now. Not saying the guy can’t play but I don’t think we have seen anything close to someone deserving of a slam dunk number one overall pick. He’s probably better or worse Baker Mayfield. Can make throws but limited athletically with a lower ceiling than anyone wants to admit. I saw Howell a number of times. Came away more disappointed than impressed each time. Guy can play but there’s no question has a lot to prove this upcoming year.
1: Spencer Rattler (Oklahoma)
This one is easy. This is the best pure arm talent in the draft. Kyler Murray 2.0 right here. Rattler is super athletic having an extensive basketball background. Rattler can make throws 95 percent of other quarterbacks can’t. Total gun on the guy. Very modern day quarterback but he’s really the only one I’d bang the table for at this point in the 2022 NFL Draft.
