2021 NFL Draft: Quarterback Rankings

Six of the past seven No. 1 overall NFL draft picks have been quarterbacks and don't expect that to change in 2021. Trevor Lawrence is the odds-on favorite to be taken by Jacksonville with the first pick on April 29 but he'll have plenty of company in the first round.

As part of Athlon Sports' 2021 NFL Draft Guide, we have ranked each position, including 20 quarterbacks. After Lawrence, Justin Fields, Zach Wilson, Trey Lance and Mac Jones also are being projected to go in the first round. There could always be surprises when it comes to which quarterback is taken and when, but below you can see how Athlon has ranked this year's crop of signal-callers.
