30. Zach Wilson, New York Jets

Zach Wilson had an underwhelming rookie season, but after he returned from his mid-season injury, fans could start to see some of his talents and the reasons why the Jets drafted him No. 2 overall.

Wilson has a chance to be one of the best mobile quarterbacks if he can strengthen his accuracy. He can do things in the pocket and make throws that will shock the world. Still, he had trouble with his decision-making this year, and that happens with a young quarterback from time to time.

29. Taylor Heinicke, Washington Commanders

Taylor Heinicke did have moments this season where he looked good, but let’s face it, if you look at the 32 starting quarterbacks and have to find which ones you would want to start your team with, Heinicke would be near the bottom of the list.

He had a chance this year to prove why he deserves to be the quarterback moving forward for Washington, but a year where they finished below .500  and Heinicke only had 20 touchdown passes along with 15 interceptions will not cut it.

28. Justin Fields, Chicago Bears

Justin Fields did have several games where he showed his ability. Against Cincinnati early in the season, he rushed for a third-down conversion after breaking a Trey Hendrickson tackle to seal a Bears win.

Against the Steelers, he took multiple hits yet still had one of his best games of the season even though it ended in a loss. With Matt Nagy gone as head coach, this will be a big year for Justin Fields’ progression. Matt Eberflus will have his hands full trying to develop this offense that has struggled for years now.
