Top QB prospects

NFL draft 2022: Everything you need to know about the top QB prospects 🏈

A year ago, Trevor Lawrence and Justin Fields were surefire top picks, and Trey Lance was a quickly rising sleeper, but Zach Wilson and Mac Jones were still taking steps to ensure that they would start for their respective schools in the fall. Todd McShay's way-too-early 2021 draft rankings last May identified the first three as guys who would almost assuredly go in the first round. Lawrence and Lance went almost exactly where they were projected, while Fields fell slightly for reasons I'll never totally understand -- but there was little way of knowing what the last two were about to unleash on the college football world in 2020. All five went in the first round of the recent 2021 draft.
