This is my look into the future to see where players will end up by the end of the season among the rookie class. This might be harder than usual to predict thanks to this odd off season not being able to practice or workout with your team as a rookie. However, with no live sports on all we have is to predict what will happen in the future and in the NFL that's the best league to do it. So without further adieu, here we go with the Quarterback Class of 2020!

1) Justin Herbert - Los Angeles Chargers

2) Joe Burrow - Cincinnati Bengals 

3) Tua Tagovailoa - Miami Dolphins

Not going to lie the quarterbacks is the worst position to start this off with since it seems to be chalk. With very little opportunity for most of them to start it's kind of hard not to. I just think Herbert will have the easier time his rookie season being on the better team. Now I am not ready to say the Chargers are set for a playoff run like everyone else has. They currently are projected to win 8 or 7 games depending on outlet you are looking at. I think all of that is a little high for a team with a rookie who will not have a proper off season. Herbert could be blocked by Tyrod Taylor, but I doubt for long with Herbert offering hope and upside on a team looking for some fan attention in a crowded LA scene. Numbers wise I think Burrow could be close with Herbert, but I worry about wins more than the numbers. On a bad Bengals roster, where I do not think they really upgrade much outside of the quarterback spot, it might be difficult for him to find his footing. I also always thought Burrow had the benefit playing with great talent at LSU that helped elevate him a lot, more so than even Tua in my opinion. So, if he has a less than stellar rookie season with such high lofty expectations going into the season. He is currently the favorite to win Offensive Rookie of the Year, which I think will be a tall task of any rookie quarterback going into this season in particular where many will be trying to learn on the fly with no proper off season. By default I have Tua as the number three quarterback by the end of the year, but I really hope he does not start. He needs to get healthy, stronger, and learn how to play within the offense. More often than not he got hurt at Alabama doing too much and extending the play instead of giving up on it. Learning from Ryan Fitzpatrick who had a relatively healthy and long career could teach him how to value his health. 

4) Jalen Hurts - Philadelphia Eagles 

5) Jordan Love - Green Bay Packers

6) Jake Fromm - Buffalo Bills 

7) James Morgan - New York Jets

8) Jacob Eason - Indianapolis Colts

This is all a list of quarterbacks that probably should not start this season, but could if their starters ahead of them go down. I have Hurts highest on this list with Carson Wentz never finishing a full season thus far into his career. Plus, I think the Eagles will find more creative ways to put Hurts out on the field in a similar way that the Saints work in Taysom Hill. Unfortunately, I do not see him as good of an athlete as Hill, but I always thought he could be a sneaky good running back if he ever did a full position switch. However, putting him as a runner like that could end up seeing him hurt, which is not a smart move to do with a back up. Love is the 2nd highest back up who could see starter snaps with Aaron Rodgers having a balky collarbone throughout his career. If he is starting however, the season is all likelihood over if he has to play more than one game. I like Fromm's chances to play a little also do to Josh Allen running and getting into contact a lot. Unlike Love, I think Fromm could play early with his high floor and provide some good snaps. Eason is the least likely to see the field with Rivers never being injured and now playing behind the best line in his entire career. The best shot Eason has is if Rivers retires after this off season. Overall, the quarterbacks are a little boring to predict with no big opportunities to start outside of Burrow and Herbert for the most part.
