Personally, I think it is amazing two quarterbacks in this class will be the first and second selections. Just think how different the way last year’s (superior) quarterbacks were discussed in comparison to this one. Many evaluators poked holes in Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota’s games, and there was complete uncertainty until draft day if they would be the top two selections, namely with the Titans at No. 2. Fast forward to this year. From a big media perspective, these quarterbacks can seemingly do no wrong.

Goff and Wentz's evaluations have been elevated despite coming from far more uncertain collegiate situations and programs.

But that is just my opinion.

I did not include trades, but some projections are based on team - prospect connections I feel strongly about and would make more sense with a trade up or back.

And yes, attempted to break groupthink.
