Ell’s Top 5 Quarterbacks NFL Draft 2022

This surprise team could steal Kenny Pickett from Commanders

1. Kenny Pickett, Pittsburgh

Strengths: arm strength, size              

Weakness: footwork, hand size

Draft Projection: Top 10 – Mid 1st Round

2. Desmond Ridder, Cincinnati

Strengths: dual threat, development    

Weakness: consistency, awareness

Draft Projection: Late 1st Round – Early 2nd Round

4 biggest beneficiaries if Steelers select Malik Willis

3. Malik Willis, Liberty

Strengths: mobility, potential                                     

Weakness: turnovers, raw (competition/awareness)

Draft Projection: Mid 1st Round – Late 1st Round

4. Carson Strong, Nevada

Strengths: size, accuracy                                             

Weakness: competition level, lack of mobility

Draft Projection: 2nd Round – 3rd Round

5. Matt Corral, Ole Miss

Strengths: mobility, toughness                                  

Weakness: size, injuries

Draft Projection: Late 1st Round – Early 2nd Round

Position Grade: C-

The quarterback position should only have one year one starter in Kenny Pickett and a possible starter in Malik Willis, but the position provides good depth with Sam Howell from North Carolina included who I compare to a lesser Baker Mayfield. Ridder, Strong and Corral should have a few games to a year behind a veteran before seeing significant snaps but could help the right systems in a backup role.
