Oakland locked in on him Ranking best quarterback
Johnny Manziel may bring the most wattage of any quarterback any player taken in the 2014 NFL draft. But no quarterback selected steps into a better situation than Blake Bortles, even though he steps in with the Jacksonville Jaguars.Bortles, taken third overall, is the quarterback of the present, not the future, and hes the only one of the 14 taken who can say that. Head coach Gus Bradley and general manager Josh Wells Jersey Dave Caldwell wont be working with someone they inherited. Much of the offensive talent around him, especially second-round wide receivers Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson, is their choice, too.MORE: Quarterback draft board | Bortles to Lee | The facts on leaked Manziel report This is Bortles team. Nobody else can say that.From best to worst, here is how the quarterbacks drafted fit with their new teams. Teddy Bridgewater, Vikings . Minnesota traded up to get Bridgewater at the end of the first round. Christian Ponder can see the writing on the wall for his career with the team. New coach Mike Zimmer and offensive coordinator Norv Turner have a blank canvas to work with. Derek Carr, Raiders . Oakland locked in on him early and did not have to use the fifth overall pick on him. The Raiders have a starter in Matt Schaub who can win while keeping the seat warm. The big free-agent signings on defense will give either quarterback a cushion. AJ McCarron, Bengals . He fell to the fifth round, but he fell into an opportunity to win the starting job. Presuming, of course, that Andy Dalton really is on notice after the lack of playoff succe s so Jermey Parnell Jersey far. Johnny Manziel, Browns . The new regime is already cashing in on him, and it surrounded him with defense and a running game in free agency and the draft. Who exactly hell throw to if Josh Gordon is suspended remains to be seen. Tom Savage, Texans . Houston was ready to Brandon Allen Jersey live with Ryan Fitzpatrick and Case Keenum before the draft, then drafted to load up the defense. Finding a project in the fourth round was a bonus. The weight wont be on the nomadic Savage. Jimmy Garoppolo, Patriots . No pre sure on him at all, except for the pre sure of being ready if Tom Brady gets hurt, or of impre sing Bill Belichick more than Ryan Mallett did. Logan Thomas, Cardinals . As well as he played for 10-6 Arizona last year, Carson Palmer is not the long-term solution. Coach Bruce Arians is betting that the Virginia Tech project could be. Aaron Murray, Chiefs . Will have time to fully heal from his ACL tear, and to stay on his coaches radar as a po sible replacement for Alex Smith some day. Tajh Boyd, Jets . Geno Smith had better have the hide of a rhino, because his team is sending every sign that his job is up for grabs, even if the Clemson product was just a late sixth-round pick. Zach Mettenberger, Titans . Ken Whisenhunt is waiting to be wowed by a quarterback, with Jake Locker going into his final contract year. The injured LSU starter with a drug-test red flag has Chris Clemons Jersey a chance to do it. David Fales, Bears; Keith Wenning, Ravens; Garrett Gilbert, Rams . Maybe theyll make the team, maybe they wont.
