The 2014 NFL Draft is in the books. It comes as no surprise, but one of the biggest talking points from the draft is how the new quarterbacks will fare in the NFL. Will Blake Bortles save Jacksonville after years of QB turmoil? Will Johnny Manziel and Teddy Bridgewater start right away after falling on draft night? Will Derek Carr’s fate be the same as his older brother’s? Can small school QB Jimmy Garoppolo become NFL-ready  behind Tom Brady? Will any of the SEC quarterbacks whose names start with M become a steal for their respective teams? All valid questions.

Let’s take a look at eight big-name QBs whose names were called over the weekend, and the situations they’ll find themselves in as rookies and in the years that follow.

    Nice read. I really can’t wait to see how all these guy do. I hope Derek is more successful than David

    Ur wrong about the O_Line,, the looks of it it looks pretty damn good now with all the FA and Gabe….

    Schaub is actually signed to a 2 year contract. Although, it’s rather painless for the Raiders to dump him after this year if he fails to bounce back. Also, the O-line has been drastically overhauled. We won’t really know how it is until the season starts, but on paper, it looks better than last year’s line.

    Uhm dude, go do research. Our O-line and D-line is what we improved the most. Perhaps a little more thought and less regurgitation.
