Best Young QB?

Postby Crimson's Ghost » September 28th, 2018, 12:11 pm

A lot of teams are turning to young QB's. Just seems to be a lot of guys under 25 that are really good also. How would you rank them?  If you could pick one to start your franchise with, who would you take?

Josh Allen (22) - Top-10 pick.  He guided the Bills to a commanding upset win over Minnesota. He played for a smaller school, but that hasn't slowed down guys in the league before.  Could he be the Bills' guy?

Sam Darnold (21) - Jets committed to Darnold by trading Teddy Bridgewater before the season. He was #3 overall pick and has been so-so thus far, but he had the pedigree and size you would want from a franchise QB. 

Jimmy Garoppolo (26) - Little bit above the 25 year old threshold. He finally got his chance last year and looked great. Expectations were huge this year but he's out for the year with an injury. 

Jared Goff (23) - Looking really good this year and the Rams might be the best team in the NFL. He's an MVP candidate at this point in just his third season. 

Lamar Jackson (21) - Not a starter yet, but he was a first round pick.  Joe Flacco seems to be fading a bit and if the season starts going south Jackson will play.  He's an elite runner, but a good passer too. He won the Heisman as a sophomore, and was arguably the best college football player the past two years. 

Patrick Mahomes (23) - He was a surprise top 10 pick a few years ago but it's looking like a really smart pick now.  Early frontrunner for the MVP this year, right?

Marcus Mariota (24) - Absolute winner in college. Heisman winner.  He was young when he entered the league, so at age 24 he's already in his 4th year as a starter.  Took Tennessee to the playoffs last year and won a wild-card game. 

Baker Mayfield (23) - The No. 1 overall pick. Heisman Trophy winner. Confident.  He seems to have it all and his legend grew further by leading the Browns to a win last week.  Is he finally the answer in Cleveland?

Dak Prescott (25) - Brilliant rookie season.  Took a step back last year, and now is having a rough season. Can he ever recapture that rookie magic?

Josh Rosen (21) - Will be getting his first start this weekend. No. 10 overall pick in the draft.

Mitchell Trubisky (24) - Didn't do much last season as a rookie, still not really opening eyes this year either.  Former #2 overall pick.

Deshaun Watson (23) - Great college player.  Burst onto the season last season and was one of the best QB's in the league before his injury? Were those 7 games a fluke or is he really that good?

Carson Wentz (25) - Had a fairly strong rookie season, but really exploded last year.  He had 33 touchdown passes in 13 games before getting injured. The Eagles won the Super Bowl without him, does that hurt his standing at all?
Jameis Winston (24) - Suspended the first three games of this year, but is eligible to play this week. Has been OK in his first three years, but nothing great.

Nice topic.  If I had to guess who will have had the best career 15 years from now, I would put the top six in this order:  Mayfield, Wentz, Goff, Mahomes, Allen, and Watson.
