Quarterback is undoubtedly the most important position on an NFL team.
Get it right and the franchise’s chances of winning Super Bowls will increase.
That’s why teams that are seeking one always look to the NFL Draft and check the prospects from the class.
They hope that one of the aspirants will become the leader that will become the squad’s cornerstone for a long time.
However, the reception for the quarterback draft class of 2022 might be cold, as shared by NFL Draft analyst Matt Miller.
I’ve talked to more NFL teams this week about Mitchell Trubisky than the 22 QB class.
I think that says a lot.

Miller shared, “I’ve talked to more NFL teams this week about Mitchell Trubisky than the 22 QB class. I think that says a lot.”
It is indeed telling that a former first-round draft pick who had experience as a starter is a hotter commodity than the up-and-coming play-callers.
That’s fascinating, considering that Trubisky barely played for the Buffalo Bills last season because Josh Allen is the undisputed franchise quarterback.
If that’s the case, there might be no quarterbacks taken in the first or even the second round.
Teams could gamble an early pick for a player that won’t pan out.
Top Quarterback Prospects In the 2022 Draft
Unfortunately, there are some years wherein the quarterback talent isn’t jaw-dropping.
A year later, Boomer Esiason was the first quarterback taken, going to the Cincinnati Bengals in the second round.
The same case might happen in 2022 even if there are some interesting candidates like Kenny Pickett, Malik Willis, Sam Howell, Matt Corral, and Desmond Ridder.
While NFL teams still view them as talented in their own right, they don’t see anyone from the bunch that has All-Pro or Hall of Fame potential.
That said, expect the bidding war for Trubisky to intensify once he becomes a free agent.
