Top five quarterback situations in the NFL right now
#2 Carolina Panthers
The team I thought was really close to the Saints were their division rival Carolina Panthers. While it looked like one of the worst QB situations at the start of the year with Cam Newton looking like a shell of himself coming off shoulder surgery in the offseason and nobody with any real experience behind him, nobody might be set up better for the future in terms of different options than this group.
Kyle Allen has been excellent taking over for Cam, going 5-1 as a starter with some big-time throws and consistent play on a run-first offense. I am also very high on their third-round pick Will Grier, who I had as my 75th overall prospect coming out of West Virginia. The confidence he plays with and how tough he is to put hands on inside the pocket make him a great developmental player. And then there’s Cam, who I have been critical of a lot in recent years and hasn’t looked like the MVP he is, but still has all the tools that made him one. With him headed to IR and his status still being up in the air to some degree, Carolina “only” landed at number two.
