14. Jimmy Garoppolo, San Francisco 49ers
Another quarterback who could be on his way out this offseason is Jimmy Garoppolo. His problem, however, isn’t his ability to win bug games, but rather his durability concerns. Garoppolo boasts an impressive record of 31-14 with the San Francisco 49ers and has even taken them to the Super Bowl.
Still, the Niners took Trey Lance third overall in the 2021 NFL Draft to eventually supplant Jimmy G, which naturally meant he would lead them to the playoffs again and win in Round 1. Garoppolo is a quarterback who can make all the throws and doesn’t fade in the clutch, but he does still have some erratic plays at times. That coupled with the injury concerns keeps him from going much higher than a mid-tier starter.
13. Kyler Murray, Arizona Cardinals
At the beginning of the season, Kyler Murray and the Arizona Cardinals appeared destined for great things. He led them to a 7-0 start and they were the final team to suffer a defeat. But from there, they struggled.
Murray was injured in their first loss and then went 2-4 when he returned. That included a 1-4 finish to the season and a brutal playoff loss to the Los Angeles Rams. Murray is still a bright young star but he’s closer to the middle of the pack than the elite tier after the way this campaign ended.
