The 2020 NFL Draft is expected to feature plenty of potential franchise-changing quarterbacks. Given how much upheaval there has been at the quarterback position recently, there are quite a few teams that could be looking for a new signal caller in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Here are the likeliest landing spots for the Top-5 quarterback prospects in the 2020 NFL Draft.
5. Jalen Hurts, Oklahoma Sooners: Minnesota Vikings
Kirk Cousins' contract will be up after the 2020-21 season, and the Minnesota Vikings might be looking to draft his eventual replacement. Jalen Hurts is raw and unpolished, but he has the tools to succeed at the next level. With the right coaching, the Oklahoma product could develop into a quality player. He's likely to be a mid-round pick, which suggests he could be a great low-cost investment for the Vikings.
4. Jacob Eason, Washington Huskies: Cincinnati Bengals
Andy Dalton has been up and down with the Cincinnati Bengals, and they might be looking to replace him next season. The Bengals already drafted Ryan Finley out of N.C. State last month, but he was only a fourth-round pick. Jacob Eason is a highly-touted prospect, and if he delivers in his first season as a starter with the Washington Huskies, he could go much higher than many are expecting.
3. Jake Fromm, Georgia Bulldogs: Tennessee Titans
Marcus Mariota has failed to live up to expectations with the Tennessee Titans, as the Oregon product has been plagued by injuries. If Mariota can't stay healthy next season, Tennessee could move on by drafting a quarterback in 2020. Jake Fromm is one of the best quarterbacks in the NCAA, and he looks like a tough, NFL-ready prospect who could be a great fit with the Titans.
2. Justin Herbert, Oregon Ducks: Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Jameis Winston likely has one more year to prove that he's the franchise quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. If Winston doesn't impress the Buccaneers' new head coach Bruce Arians, Tampa Bay might look for a fresh start in the 2020 NFL Draft. Justin Herbert projects as a great fit in Arians' offense, as he has a big arm and throws an excellent deep ball.
1. Tua Tagovailoa, Alabama Crimson Tide: Miami Dolphins
The Miami Dolphins have been linked to Tua Tagovailoa for quite some time. They did just trade for Josh Rosen, but if Miami ends up with the No. 1 pick, they still might take Tagovailoa. Unless Rosen proves he's a franchise quarterback next season, Miami could opt to take Tagovailoa in 2020.
