Ryan was the third overall pick in the 2008 draft and made a huge impact early on for the Falcons. He\’s had a strong career, over 11 seasons so far, making four Pro Bowls, winning the 2016 MVP and nearly leading the Falcons to a Super Bowl victory. Ryan currently has a streak of eight straight seasons with at least 4,000 passing yards.

Baltimore traded up to take Jackson 32nd overall in the 2018 draft, and the former Heisman Trophy winner at Louisville helped lead his team to the playoffs in his first season after going 6-1 in seven regular-season starts. There remain questions about his ability to throw in the NFL, but his mobility makes him an extremely exciting quarterback.

Buffalo selected Allen seventh overall out of Wyoming in 2018. During his rookie season he struggled passing the ball, completing only 52.8 percent of passes but rushed for 631 yards and eight touchdowns in 12 games.

The 2010 Heisman Trophy winner at Auburn, Newton went first overall to the Panthers the following year. He made the Pro Bowl in his rookie season but has had ups and downs since then. Over his seven seasons, Newton has made three Pro Bowls and won the 2015 MVP, but he fell short in Super Bowl 50 to the Broncos.

Trubisky was the first quarterback taken in the 2017 draft, going second overall to the Bears. He went 4-8 in his rookie season but showed flashes before his breakout sophomore campaign under new head coach Matt Nagy.

The first overall pick in the 2003 draft out of USC, Palmer played a huge role in breaking the Bengals out of a long spell of losing. He sat on the bench until his second season and had one of his best years in 2005, throwing for a league-high 32 touchdowns as the Bengals went 11-5. Palmer had a falling out with the organization after the 2010 season and spent his final seven years in Oakland and Arizona. He retired after the 2017 season with more than 46,000 passing yards and 294 touchdown passes in his career.

A Heisman Trophy winner at Oklahoma, Mayfield went first overall in the 2018 draft. He showed enough in his rookie season to convince Browns fans that their quarterback problems are finally over, completing 63.8 percent of his passes with 27 touchdowns in 14 games.

Head coach Jimmy Johnson made Aikman his first draft choice when he took over the Cowboys in 1989, and the pair helped turn Dallas into a winner again. Aikman made six straight Pro Bowls from 1991-96 and won three Super Bowls with the Cowboys. He retired after 12 seasons and was later enshrined in Canton with nearly 33,000 yards passing and 165 touchdowns.

The Broncos opted to take Lynch with the 26th overall pick in the 2016 draft after Peyton Manning retired and Brock Osweiler walked in free agency. After only four starts in two seasons, the Broncos released him.

Stafford had some injuries early in his career after going first overall in 2009 out of Georgia, but he\’s turned into one of the league\’s top quarterbacks. He threw for at least 4,200 yards in seven straight seasons and has 237 touchdowns during his 10-year career.

Rodgers watched helplessly as he fell down the first round of the 2005 draft, eventually going 24th overall to the Packers. He soon replaced Brett Favre, and Rodgers has been an elite quarterback for most of his career. The Cal alumnus won two MVPs and one Super Bowl while producing a staggering 338/80 TD/INT. He\’s easily had a Hall of Fame career and is arguably the best quarterback of his generation.

Watson went 12th overall to the Texans in 2017 after winning the national championship at Clemson. The mobile quarterback worked his way into the lineup early in his rookie season after Tom Savage was injured, and he threw for 1,699 yards and 19 touchdowns in only seven games before tearing his ACL in practice. Watson successfully rebounded from the injury to throw for 4,165 yards and 26 touchdowns in his second season.

Luck went first overall to Indianapolis in 2012, effectively replacing the legendary Peyton Manning. He made the Pro Bowl in each of his first three seasons, as the Colts went 11-5 in all three years but then struggled to stay on the field. Luck did rebound last season after missing all of 2017 to a shoulder injury, throwing for 4,593 yards and 39 touchdowns.

The third overall pick in the 2014 draft out of UCF, Bortles helped the Jags to a 10-6 regular season in 2017 but regressed to 3-9 as a starter during his final year with the team in 2018.  He finished his Jaguars career completing less than 60 percent of his passes in total.

The Chiefs traded up to take Mahomes 10th overall in 2017, and he\’s been worth the gamble. Mahomes won NFL MVP in his first full season as a starter in 2018, throwing for 5,097 yards and 50 touchdowns.

Manning was taken first overall by the Chargers in 2004 but was promptly traded to the Giants for Philip Rivers due to his refusal to play in San Diego. The move has worked out for both teams. Manning has won two Super Bowls for the Giants and made four Pro Bowls during his career, throwing for more than 55,000 yards over 15 seasons so far.

Taken first overall by the Rams in 2016 out of Cal, Goff looked lost in his rookie season. He went 0-7 as a starter, but he\’s been a different player since the Rams hired Sean McVay in 2017. Goff has made consecutive Pro Bowls, going 24-7, and he led the Rams to Super Bowl LIII.

A wide receiver for part of his time at Texas A&M, Tannehill went eighth overall to the Dolphins in 2012. He started every game of his first four seasons but struggled with injuries over the last three years. Miami has moved on, trading him this offseason to the Titans.

The 32nd overall pick in the 2014 draft out of Louisville, Bridgewater started 12 games in his rookie season and all 16 games of his sophomore campaign. A freak and severe knee injury suffered before the 2016 season sidelined him for more than a year, and he\’s served as Drew Brees\’ backup in New Orleans since last year.

Bledsoe went first overall to the Patriots in 1993 and had a solid career with the team before the legend that is Tom Brady replaced him. The Washington State alumnus started 123 games over nine seasons in New England, throwing for nearly 30,000 yards with the Pats. After being replaced by Brady, Bledsoe played for the Bills and Cowboys. He made four Pro Bowls during his career.

The best quarterback in the history of the Saints until Drew Brees arrived, Manning was drafted second overall out of Ole Miss in 1971. He went 35-91-3 as a starter over 11 seasons for some terrible Saints teams, but Manning also made two Pro Bowls during his career. These days he\’s more widely known as the father of Peyton and Eli.

Drafted fourth overall by the Giants in 2004, Rivers was traded to the Chargers for Eli Manning. He\’s been arguably the best quarterback in the history of the Chargers organization, with apologies to Dan Fouts, making seven Pro Bowls and starting 208 straight regular-season games over 13 seasons. He\’s thrown for more than 54,000 yards and 374 touchdowns over his career, but his playoff success has been fleeting.

The Jets traded up to third overall to take Darnold in 2018 and saw promising first-year results. The former USC Trojan went 4-9 as a starter but threw for 2,865 yards and 17 touchdowns. New York hopes new head coach Adam Gase can help him get to the next level.

Russell parlayed a great 2007 Sugar Bowl performance into going first overall to the Raiders that same year. The LSU alumnus featured an incredible arm, but he never could put it together in the NFL. He went 7-18 in 25 career starts for the Raiders, lasting only three seasons in the league.

Wentz was taken second overall by the Eagles in 2016 and was the front-runner to win NFL MVP in his second year until suffering a knee injury late in the 2017 season. He was replaced as the starter by Nick Foles, and the Eagles went on to win a Super Bowl. Wentz had more injury issues last year, but the organization still has high hopes for him.

Big Ben has had a Hall of Fame career in Pittsburgh with two Super Bowl victories and six Pro Bowls during his 15-year career. The Miami of Ohio alumnus went 11th overall to the Steelers in 2004, finally giving head coach Bill Cowher the talented quarterback he long desired. Roethlisberger went 13-0 as a starter during his rookie season and won the Super Bowl in his second season. He\’s thrown for more than 56,000 yards and 363 touchdowns.

Smith was the first overall pick in the 2005 draft after playing for Urban Meyer at Utah. He was oft-injured early in his career but eventually found success in San Francisco under head coach Jim Harbaugh. After Colin Kaepernick replaced Smith as the starter in 2012, he was traded to Kansas City and went 50-26 over five seasons. Smith was traded to Washington last year, but his football future is in doubt following a severe leg injury.

A hyped quarterback out of Notre Dame, Mirer went second overall to the Seahawks in 1993. He was just 20-31 as a starter over four seasons in Seattle and also played for the Bears, Jets, 49ers and Raiders during his career.

Winston won the Heisman Trophy and helped lead Florida State to a national championship, but the jury is still out on him in the NFL. The first overall pick in 2015, he\’s just 21-33 as a starter. He threw for more than 4,000 yards in each of his first two seasons before struggling over the last two years.

RGIII was taken second overall in 2012 and was an instant superstar in Washington. He won Offensive Rookie of the Year in Mike Shanahan\’s offense, throwing for 20 touchdowns and rushing for seven more. However, Griffin was never the same after suffering a knee injury in the playoffs of his rookie season, going just 6-19 as a starter between Washington and Cleveland since then. He was out of football in 2017 but backed up Lamar Jackson in Baltimore last year.
