Teams that need a starter at QB

We currently have up to 10 teams that are likely evaluating their immediate future at the QB position. The Pittsburgh Steelers immediately stand out, with neither Mason Rudolph nor Dwayne Haskins likely to be considered a convincing option. Similarly, following the Russell Wilson trade, the Seattle Seahawks are unlikely to feel comfortable rolling into their future with Geno Smith and Drew Lock as the main pieces.

The Houston Texans are also a question mark. Davis Mills showed promise as a rookie, but they might yet look to add someone to compete with him this offseason. Another second-year QB who is currently penciled in as a starter is Kyle Trask. However, his situation is likely to change. Bruce Arians has spoken glowingly of Blaine Gabbert and will likely look to bring him back. If not then a veteran option in free agency could be on the cards.

Elsewhere in the NFC, both the Detroit Lions and the San Francisco 49ers are intriguing. The Lions might roll with Goff this year, but expect them to draft someone to compete with him. Meanwhile, the 49ers are unlikely to be actively looking for a QB1 for 2022. They will likely either be starting Jimmy Garoppolo or Trey Lance this season. Other places to keep an eye on include, the New York Giants, New Orleans Saints, and Carolina Panthers.
