11. Bryce Young – Alabama Crimson Tide (Draft)
It seems like a foregone conclusion that Bryce Young will be the first quarterback off the board in the upcoming draft. The Bears aren’t going to take him but there has been some talk about the Texans trading up one spot just to prevent other teams (particularly the Colts) from jumping them. What that means is that the Atlanta Falcons would have to offer a lot to the Bears if they want Bryce Young and even then, would the Bears be willing to drop seven spots?
As great as it would be to have Bryce Young, don’t get your hopes too high because it would take a miracle.
10. Daniel Jones – New York Giants (Free agency)
Daniel Jones picked the right time to have his best year. He is due to become an unrestricted free agent in March but the Giants may lock him up before then.
He has a skill set that Arthur Smith would welcome, however, if they want to bring him in, they will have to be willing to pay him possibly $30 million or more per year and they would need to get lucky. Is it worth it? Absolutely not.
9. C.J. Stroud – Ohio State Buckeyes (Draft)
For a quarterback that is considered one of the top three in the draft class and who could fall to the eighth-overall pick, this may seem like a low ranking. However, I go back to (for a 50th time) what Arthur Smith likes from his quarterbacks, mobility, which is C.J. Stroud’s biggest weakness. He just doesn’t seem like a player that the organization would commit to.
