Top Eight Quarterbacks in the 2022 NFL Draft

By

  • Bailey Zappe, Western Kentucky- Zappe broke both the NCAA passing yards and touchdown record this past season. While it is impressive, Zappe’s tape is not the best. He does a great job making reads and has a clean knowledge of the offense. He’s a highly functioning quarterback that does a great job scanning the field and putting a great touch on the ball. His accuracy isn’t the greatest on deep throws but when he puts the ball on the money it’s perfect. His scrambling ability is almost nonexistent but he does anticipate pressure well and is able to get the ball out quickly before getting sacked. He’s only 6-feet-1-inch, 220 pounds and you’d expect a high level of athleticism but he doesn’t portray a good level of athleticism on the field as seen in his pocket movement on scrambling ability. The Western Kentucky offense was fully built to his strengths and it’s not been seen what he can do in a modern pro-style offense. Zappe likely is going to be a career backup and will do good in that role. He’s definitely someone that can come in and win a few games if your starter goes down but he doesn’t have the traits you want from a starting franchise quarterback.
