28. Daniel Jones, New York Giants
When the New York Giants selected Daniel Jones at No. 6 overall in 2019, there were a lot of eyebrows raised. They were convinced that in the end, we would all see their brilliance after he took over for Eli Manning. That has yet to happen.
Jones has been wildly inconsistent in his career and he really struggles to get the ball in the end zone. In his last 25 games, he has just 22 touchdown passes against 17 interceptions. Even with New York adding Kenny Golladay and Kadarius Toney, things looked the same for Jones this season.
The question now is how safe his job is. Joe Judge was all-in on Jones but with him gone, the future for this young quarterback could hinge on who they choose to run the team.
27. Taylor Heinicke, Washington Football Team
A backup who burst onto the scene against the Bucs in the 2020 NFL Playoffs, Taylor Heinicke ended up as the starter this past season for the Washington Football Team when Ryan Fitzpatrick was injured. He performed well at times, going for 3,419 yards with 20 touchdowns and 15 picks but he struggled when facing the better teams.
Buffalo, New Orleans, and Dallas beat him up pretty badly as did the Denver defense. Then again, he did beat Tom Brady and Tampa Bay, so maybe if he could play 17 games against them, he would be a Hall of Famer.
