Which teams are most likely to draft a QB in the 2021 NFL Draft?

It hasn’t been a great 2020 season for former first-round quarterbacks.

Mitch Trubisky, benched. Dwayne Haskins, benched. Sam Darnold, sinking fast.

As a result, several teams are likely to be in the quarterback market in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft.

Here are the seven teams most likely to draft a quarterback in Round 1.

Washington Football Team

The Haskins era came to an abrupt end Wednesday and while Kyle Allen is certainly an adequate NFL starter, he won’t be Washington’s long-term answer at the position. He’d be the perfect bridge quarterback to take the bumps and bruises while a first-round rookie learns under Ron Rivera‘s tutelage.

New York Jets

The Jets are likely to have a new quarterback and head coach on opening day next season. There’s a chance that quarterback will be Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence, too. The Jets (0-4) are one of the worst — if not the worst — teams in the NFL and have as good of a shot as any team to end the year with the No. 1 pick.

Chicago Bears

The Bears have already moved on from Mitch Trubisky, and while it’s likely Nick Foles will be the starter through 2021, a first-round quarterback makes sense for a team that’s good enough to compete for the playoffs with the right player behind center.
