24. Baker Mayfield, Cleveland Browns

Baker Mayfield will more than likely still be the Browns quarterback this year, and it’s the right decision. However, his leash will be extremely short. This past year he struggled mightily, but people seem to forget he had a ruptured shoulder.

The Browns also have to surround him with a better receiving core. Donovan Peoples-Jones, you could say, was the most efficient receiver they had this season, even more so than Jarvis Landry.

23. Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh Steelers (Retired)

This year, Ben Roethlisberger finished an incredible career with not his best overall season, but he went out the right way. He was clinching a long-shot playoff spot in the final weeks and won his last game in Pittsburgh. This is where I rank Roethlisberger’s final NFL season among the other quarterbacks.

22. Jameis Winston, New Orleans Saints

Jameis Winston can be higher on this list, but his season was cut short due to injury. Winston has the arm talent to be very good, but he often works with his decision-making, and that’s been his most significant question mark since he’s entered the league.

21. Teddy Bridgewater, Denver Broncos

Teddy Bridgewater is an excellent quarterback and does his job well but has struggled to find a home. He suffered a late-season concussion, and once he went down, the Broncos also fell out of playoff contention. He can be a top 18 quarterback in this league, but the question is if he will even get a chance to be a starter next season.
