Whether the Detroit Lions decide they need a quarterback after Jared Goff’s 2021 season or not, they are going to do their due diligence on the 2022 class of college quarterbacks. When you’re drafting high, as many expect the Lions to be doing next April, it’s just good business to be paying attention to the quarterbacks available.
However, things aren’t looking great with regards to the 2022 quarterback draft class as the ball gets rolling on the college football season. Spencer Rattler is head and shoulders above the rest of the class, and even he is not someone I’d be comfortable taking over my franchise.
Question of the day: How are you feeling about the 2022 quarterback draft class?
My answer: not good.
Rattler is not someone I would hand the keys to my franchise, and everyone beneath him is a hard no from me right now. Even if someone were to make a Joe Burrow-esque ascension throughout the season, I would be wary of a one-hit wonder, especially seeing how Burrow has panned out thus far. Our own Erik Schlitt broke down the crop of potential draftees here.
Brad Holmes and Dan Campbell are in a tough spot if Jared Goff underperforms this year, because they’ll have to chalk up another year to find the right guy to take the reins of the franchise.
