The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / Featured / Ranking the Top-5 Quarterbacks in the 2020 NFL Draft

Ranking the Top-5 Quarterbacks in the 2020 NFL Draft

Who are your top 5?
Publish Date: 03/27/2020
Fact checked by: Mark Lewis

5) Jordan Love, Utah State

He is a physical specimen and some NFL team will fall in love with what he looks like and not what he plays like. He consistently locks his eyes on one target and his presence in the pocket leaves a lot to be desired. Overall he is a talented player but a lot of work needs to be done before he will make it in the NFL. If he goes in the first round it will be a tremendous reach. In the right situation, he could develop into a quality quarterback but that situation may be hard to find.

4) Jake Fromm, Georgia

I know he doesn’t have elite arm strength, but don’t sleep on him as he is a gamer and plays well in tight spots. Fromm does not have great athleticism for a starting NFL quarterback but he is overflowing with intangibles. I am not saying he will be Tom Brady, but I am saying he is worth a shot in the third round for a team that doesn’t need a starter right now because he could develop into a solid NFL quarterback.

3) Justin Herbert, Oregon

He looks the part, but can he play the part? My answer is probably not and if he does it will take a couple of years for him to develop. He really needs to improve working through progressions and his field vision is average at best. With that being said, the potential is there and it will come down to who is coaching him and his willingness to learn. If somebody picks him in the top-15 I think it’s a reach. After that I think he is worth a shot, especially with a team that won’t rush him into starting.

2) Tua Tagovailoa, Alabama

Injury concerns have really hurt Tua, but he has tremendous potential and upside. He throws the ball accurately, showing good field vision, anticipation and patience. He is also an aggressive passer who challenges defenses downfield. If he did not have injury issues I might have him at co-number one with Burrow, he is that good. The combination of Burrow and Tua as the top-2 quarterbacks in this draft gives us the possibility of having two legendary quarterbacks taken the same year. Tua has poise and intangibles for days, just like Burrow. Hopefully the hip is healed and he is ready to go because he also has the makings of a special player.

1) Joe Burrow, LSU

Burrow is the real deal and if the Bengals decide to take him, which it seems they will, the jokes about the Bengals will cease quickly. He is great in the pocket, throws well on the move, and his accuracy and ball placement are off the charts. He has intangibles out the wazoo and is as good as a quarterback coming out of college since Andrew Luck. I have actually spoken to some scouts that think he is similar to Andy Dalton who think he lacks elite arm strength and I just don’t see that. Sure he is not John Elway but he has more than enough to get the job done and then some.
