I have been hyping the 2018 quarterback draft class since the end of the 2017 NFL Draft and for good reason. It’s a loaded class that could potentially dwarf the 2012 class and compete with the legendary 1983 class. There are 4 quarterbacks in this class I believe will be franchise quarterbacks in this league and all 4 have a clear best fit in terms of team in the NFL.
This post isn’t about hyping this group or giving detailed scouting reports on each prospect. This is about breaking down what the best realistic fit is for each top quarterback prospect. Talent gets these quarterbacks drafted very high, but finding the right fit is how GMs keep their jobs and what allows these young quarterbacks to succeed very early. See Jared Goff 2016 vs 2017.
