2013 NFL Draft: New York Jets and 6 Teams That Will Go QB in First Round
That being said, some teams need to seriously consider making a change at signal caller and it starts with next year's NFL draft.
Though some teams narrowly escape this list, others are certainly scouting next year's quarterback crop with intent to draft.
Best fit: Logan Thomas, Va. Tech
The situation with Carson Palmer has gone from bad to worse and this team is really just waiting for the 2013 draft at this point.
While Thomas hasn't put up great numbers this season at Virginia Tech, his athleticism and big arm is enticing for a Raiders team that has a lot invested in fast receivers and a quick running back.
The Raiders need to move on from Carson Palmer and the Hokie quarterback could be a good fit.
Best fit: Geno Smith
The only thing holding the Bills back from being a Top 10 team in the league is their quarterback, gunslinger Ryan Fitzpatrick.
Fitzpatrick can be prolific at times and he has an advanced knowledge of the spread offense, but Chan Gailey needs to grab a quarterback who will turn the ball over less.
Geno Smith has been fantastic in West Virginia's system and his skill set would translate well to professional play.
New York Jets
Best fit: Tyler Wilson
The Jets are mired in an awful slump and need to figure things out before they're picking in the top five of next year's draft.
After a 34-0 drubbing against the San Francisco 49ers, it's clear that New York has no quarterback and needs to upgrade at the position before talking seriously about the playoffs.
Tyler Wilson has the pro-style experience and has played in high-pressure situations against other SEC teams. He's a good fit for New York.
New coach, new quarterback?
Best fit: Tyler Bray
Ken Whisenhunt's Arizona Cardinals have started the season at 4-0, a testament to fantastic play on defense.
Kevin Kolb is not a franchise quarterback and he's played just well enough for the Cardinals to succeed in 2012.
Whisenhunt will want a quarterback who can run a high-powered attack and Tennessee's Tyler Bray has proven he can do just that, passing the ball with efficiency for the Volunteers.
Kansas City Chiefs
Best fit: Matt Barkley
The Chiefs have many talented players on offense, from the speedy Jamaal Charles to Dwayne Bowe and young Jonathan Baldwin.
Matt Cassel is a backup quarterback with a starting quarterback's job and contract. The team needs to move on from this player and go grab a top-notch rookie.
While Barkley hasn't impressed many draft evaluators this season and he doesn't have ideal height at the position, having all of Kansas City's weapons around him will help him develop.
Best fit: Aaron Murray
While many will point to the fact that Philadelphia has Nick Foles waiting in the wings, consider that people were heaping the same praise on Eagle backups like Kevin Kolb and Mike Kafka recently.
Aaron Murray is advanced beyond his years under center, using his sharp mind to make up for a lack in prototypical NFL size, a la Drew Brees or Russell Wilson.
