Best Destinations for Rookie Quarterbacks

The 2024 NFL Draft begins in only two weeks, and this year boasts one of the most hyped lineups of prospects in recent years. Once again, the quarterback position takes up the lion’s share of the conversations thus far. But, keep in mind, no position endures such a level of scrutiny from fans and analysts alike, and said level will only increase. Though a significant portion of NFL teams are in need of a “quarterback of the future”, not every team is equally equipped to build around the new kid come August.

Here are the best teams in the NFL for a rookie signal caller to get drafted by in 2024.

The Best Rookie Quarterback Destinations in the 2024 NFL Draft

Washington Commanders

The Commanders are eager to get their new era of Washington football on the right foot. Former Dallas defensive coordinator, Dan Quinn, will once again don the role of head coach for the nation’s capital, giving their promising defense a much-needed boost.

But the offense is not a barren wasteland of talent, either. Brian Robinson, Jr. and Austin Ekeler will tag team on the ground attack, while Zach Ertz, Jamison Crowder, and Terry McLaurin will look to get the passing game going. Whoever Washington decides to draft at quarterback should have a solid enough foundation to find his footing under the bright lights.

Atlanta Falcons

A-Town made a significant splash in signing Kirk Cousins from the Minnesota Vikings. But Cousins’ Achilles injury still casts uncertainty as when to when he will be ready to take the field. The Falcons, meanwhile, are armed to the teeth in weapons in both the ground and passing games. Their defense can mess with the best of them as well.

That being said, it would not hurt the front office to acquire another field general in April. With Cousins still recovering and Taylor Heinicke not being a great solution, the quarterback room will need youth and depth to prepare for the “next man up” protocol.

Chicago Bears

The Bears have covered quite some ground in their rebuild while finding a way to entice a quarterback into flying up to the Windy City. Chicago brought in Keenan Allen from Los Angeles and D’Andre Swift from Philadelphia to put some pep in the offense’s step. With the first and ninth overall picks in the upcoming draft, the roster will welcome some much-needed help and youth in the system.

Head coach, Matt Eberflus, will have a new offensive staff coming into 2024, just in time to guide the new signal caller in waiting. But with a 10-24 start to his tenure, Eberflus will have to prove why the Bears have made him their head coach and why they should not go shopping for his successor just yet.

Minnesota Vikings

The Minnesota Vikings have a rather potent offense in the making, with Justin Jefferson, Jordan Addison, and T.J. Hockenson. Let’s not forget about the recent acquisition of Aaron Jones from Green Bay. But Kirk Cousins‘ relocation to Atlanta leaves a gaping void at the quarterback position.

His potential successors, Sam Darnold and Jaren Hall, are not the solutions that Vikings fans will be fine and dandy with. If Nick Mullins is the best option under center, there is a problem at the position. The purple and gold ought to maneuver themselves into a better position to grab a notable prospect before it’s too late.
