Where does Russell Wilson rank among the top 32 NFL quarterbacks?
28. Zach Wilson, New York Jets
Zach Wilson was the second overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft and he, like Justin Fields, had a really bad rookie season.
There were some good moments for Wilson including some throws that hit the ground against the Denver Broncos, and it was just that kind of year for the Jets.
It didn’t help that Wilson struggled some with injury, which was a concern going back to his days at BYU.
If Wilson can’t take the next step in year two for the Jets, it’s going to be bad news for Robert Saleh & company. Not that taking Wilson was the wrong move at the time, but the Jets just haven’t been able to get it right at QB and they need Wilson to progress. For now, the jury’s out.
27. Mitchell Trubisky, Pittsburgh Steelers
It was painful to put Mitchell Trubisky ahead of some of the younger guys on this list with more long-term potential, but I might just be so crazy to actually like his situation with the Steelers.
I am sure the Steelers will draft someone in a couple of weeks and make this whole section irrelevant, but Trubisky is going to a very stable situation at a great organization with outstanding skill-position talent.
If the Steelers can upgrade the offensive line in the 2022 NFL Draft, I think Trubisky has a decent chance of really rebounding in Pittsburgh.
