The 2018 quarterback draft class was extremely deep while the 2019 edition has been slower to develop, but has emerged of late.
Mel Kiper Jr. was asked to describe the class in one word.
"Can I have two words? Because I'll say extremely intriguing. The reason? Oregon's Justin Herbert isn't the clear-cut No. 1 quarterback anymore. Dwayne Haskins (Ohio State) is breathing down his neck after a phenomenal stretch to end the season. There's also Daniel Jones (Duke), who could be a mid-first-round pick. Then you have guys like Will Grier (West Virginia), Drew Lock (Missouri) and Ryan Finley (NC State) jockeying for position as potential Day 2 picks. There's a loooooong time to go until April, though, and all three of my top-ranked QBs are underclassmen who could return to school."
Kiper believes Herbert would have been ranked fifth in the 2018 class.
