Comparing the 2017 NFL Draft’s first-round QB prospects

While no one is quite sure of who the best quarterback in the 2017 NFL Draft is, there does seem to be a consensus regarding which of the passers could be chosen in the first round.

Most analysts and experts agree that if a passer is to be chosen among the first 32 selections, it will be one or more of Deshaun Watson, Mitchell Trubisky, DeShone Kizer, Patrick Mahomes and Davis Webb.

In fact, a look at some mock drafts shows the Cardinals linked to Mahomes the most, with Watson a close second. Trubisky and Kizer are also mentioned, albeit not as often.

Of course, the days leading up to the draft are filled with misinformation and smoke screens, so true evaluations of each player are nearly impossible to come by or trust.

That said, with the Cardinals slated to pick 13th overall and many believing they will look to address the quarterback position in that spot, it makes sense to take a look at the viable prospects in a side-by-side comparison.
