2019 Draft Tiers -- QB

By Matt Schauf 6:08am EDT 8/28/19


We've been preaching to wait on a QB for years, and we still do.

The thing is, that has become much more normal than it used to be. QB ADPs are tending to slide a little deeper into drafts. That means you can often find starter-level value even in the double-digit rounds. But it also means you can give a look at some higher-ranked guys when they slip and you don't love what's available elsewhere.

Patrick Mahomes, Chiefs
Deshaun Watson, Texans

Last year's Mahomes perched on his own shelf. He came back to the pack late in the year, though. (Specifically, in games after Kareem Hunt got the boot. But we're not pointing to that as the cause.) Watson, meanwhile, showed us in his rookie campaign that he has the upside to outscore the rest of the position by a lot ... at least before Mahomes arrived. These 2 combine top-shelf passing and rushing upside with terrific surrounding talent to pull away from the rest of the position.
