2013 NFL Draft: Dismal Teams Most Desperate for a QB

Teams that need QBs must find them in the 2013 NFL Draft.

And given that this year’s class isn’t on par with ones of the past, there’ll be fewer future faces of the franchise to pick from.

Of all the clubs that’ll aim to select a quarterback, here’s who should be the most desperate.

 

Will NY draft a QB in Round 1?

3. New York Jets

New York’s QB woes are well documented, to say the least.

This season, Mark Sanchez threw only 13 touchdowns passes and a whopping 18 interceptions as he regressed tremendously. But Rex Ryan blindly stuck with the inept passer. And because Ryan somehow, someway still has a job in the Big Apple, Tim Tebow sure isn’t an option.

The Jets can’t possibly go into next year with seventh-round pick Greg McElroy as their starter. If they don’t acquire a veteran a la Michael Vick, they must draft a quarterback early.

2. Arizona Cardinals

Zona’s quarterback quartet was so pathetic last season that it couldn’t even get the ball to Larry Fitzgerald.

John Skelton, Ryan Lindley and Brian Hoyer had a combined touchdown-to-interception ratio of—brace yourself for this—3-18. Kevin Kolb, on the other hand, played respectably when healthy. But that’s the thing—he can’t stay healthy. He’s sat out 17 games the past two seasons.

At seventh overall, Arizona should be able to pick whoever its heart desires at the position, with the possible exception of West Virginia QB Geno Smith.

1. Kansas City Chiefs

Andy Reid traditionally overachieves with QBs, but that doesn’t mean the Chiefs should be satisfied with Matt Cassel. He was actually a solid starter in 2010, but has been downright pitiful since then, throwing 16 touchdown passes and 21 interceptions.

If KC doesn’t draft Smith first overall, it’ll be in the same position when the 2014 NFL draft rolls around.
