Teams set at quarterback for the foreseeable future
There are 11 teams in this group. If a team from this group drafted Dak Prescott, he’d be going there to be the backup. The only way he would see the field in most circumstances would be if whoever was the current starter suffers an injury. You can live a really nice life as a backup quarterback in the NFL, but I know Mississippi State fans want to see him play significant minutes in his career.
- Oakland Raiders
- Being a Raider fan, I would love to see Dak in the silver and black. But the Raiders have found an up and coming star in second year quarterback Derek Carr. We won’t see Dak play much if he heads to Oakland.
- Indianapolis Colts
- Andrew Luck might not have had the year Colts fans had hoped for, but he is still the quarterback NFL GMs think is the biggest game changer in the league.
- Minnesota Vikings
- Teddy Bridgewater is a solid quarterback. He isn’t the best in the league, but he is pretty darn good. It would take a serious regression for the Vikings to pull Bridgewater and go in a different direction.
- Carolina Panthers
- Cam Newton is about to be named the NFL MVP, and has only been in the league since 2011. I think they’re set.
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers
- You may not like Jameis Winston as a person, but he had a really good season. The Bucs are happy with where they are at.
- Tennessee Titans
- Again, Marcus Mariota was pretty good as a rookie. The Titans won’t make a change any time soon.
- Jacksonville Jaguars
- I almost put Jacksonville on the list of teams that we aren’t sure about their quarterback situation, but Bortles did just enough in his second season to make me think the Jaguars will be sticking with him for a little while.
- Seattle Seahawks
- Russell Wilson has taken them to two Super Bowls. They aren’t changing.
- Green Bay Packers
- I came real close to putting the Packers on the very bottom list. Aaron Rodgers is 32, so he is probably closer to the end of his career than he is the beginning, but I think he has at least five more good years ahead of him.
- Pittsburgh Steelers
- Ben Roethlisberger is pretty much the same as Aaron Rodgers. He’s got enough good years ahead of him at 33 that Dak Prescott won’t get much playing time.
- Atlanta Falcons
- Matt Ryan is 30 and isn’t going anywhere any time soon.
