28. Jared Goff - Los Angeles Rams
2016 stats: 112-for-205 (54.6%), 1,089 passing yards, 5 touchdowns, 7 interception
After 10 brutal weeks of Case Keenum-led football, it was difficult to determine whether Goff won the starting job, or was handed it by default. Based on seven weeks of horrific football, it certainly seems to be the latter. Goff barely completed 50 percent of his passes playing in a painfully conservative offense, and faces a crucial offseason. The hiring of head coach/quarterback whisperer Sean McVay should help, as Goff has a long road ahead to proving worthy of being drafted No. 1 overall in 2016. Playing in a spread system in college made Goff's transition to the pros much more difficult, but with decent mobility and a strong/accurate arm, Goff should only move up this list in the coming years.

27. Blake Bortles - Jacksonville Jaguars
2016 stats: 68-for-625 (58.9%), 3,905 passing yards, 23 touchdowns, 16 interceptions, 58 carries, 359 rushing yards, 3 rushing touchdowns
Coming off a 4,428-yard, 35-touchdown campaign in 2015, Bortles and the Jaguars looked primed for a huge year in 2016. Instead, the Central Florida alum took a huge step back. Bortles’ startling inability to connect with receivers suddenly has Jacksonville management wondering if he’s the long-term solution at quarterback. With new coach Doug Marrone at the helm, 2017 may serve as Bortles’ last opportunity to prove himself as a worthy franchise cornerstone. With deceptive athleticism, a strong arm and a stud No. 1 receiver in Allen Robinson to throw to, Bortles will need to put all of the pieces together in order to keep his job.
