With the NFL 2021 season behind us, we take a look back at the season and rank all 32 starting signal-callers in this Quarterback Power Rankings
We are heading into the second round of the 2021 NFL playoffs and one thing is apparent, teams that make it this far into the postseason have to have a quarterback they can win with.
It’s clearly the most important position in the sport and the teams that have the best are always the hardest to beat. This doesn’t mean you have to have an elite quarterback to win it all — but it helps — however, you do have to have one capable of running the offense and not folding in the clutch.
Here, we look back over the 2021 season and rank the 32 starting signal-callers with our 2022 NFL Quarterback Power Rankings.
Rookies kick off our NFL Quarterback Power Rankings
32. Davis Mills, Houston Texans
Entering the season, Davis Mills was never supposed to be the starter for the Houston Texans but by season’s end, that was the case. Originally, it was an injury suffered by Tyrod Taylor that put him at the helm but before long Houston was just trying to see what they had in Mills.
He wasn’t terrible with 2,664 yards and a completion percentage of 66.8 but with a record of 2-9 — and a lot of blowout losses — some of those numbers are inflated due to playing against prevent defenses.
31. Trevor Lawrence, Jacksonville Jaguars
The No. 1 overall pick in 2021 was Trevor Lawrence and the Clemson product tasted regular-season losing for the first time in his football career. And it was a lot of losing.
Lawrence finished 3-14 and had some abysmal stats. Entering 2022, his star has lost some shine even though much of that had to do with the roster around him — as well as the dysfunction they had at coach with Urban Meyer. Still, he has to prove this season was not all on him before he can start climbing the quarterback ranks.
