Last week I wrote about five teams “on the clock” for a quarterback in 2022. A lot can change between now and next April, but that won’t stop us from predicting which teams eye a QB in the first-round next year.

The Houston Texans, Detroit Lions, and Washington Football Team are a few teams that most would agree should be eyeing quarterbacks in next years draft.
A few other teams I wrote about included the Eagles, Panthers, and Giants. All three teams have a guy they like this year, but none feel guaranteed to have the job next season without a promising 2021 showing.
Drop some teams below that you feel could eye a quarterback in the 2022 NFL Draft.

The Washington Football Team!
My Pittsburgh Steelers need one but I don’t think they will be high enough in the draft to select one
Definitely have to include the Giants in this conversation. Loaded with draft capital (surprisingly) after last year after going all in on the offense this year. If it doesn’t click for DJ I definitely think they’d consider moving on.
My Steelers better be, not much faith in Haskins being the guy. Washington, Houston Texans, Denver Broncos, Atlanta Falcons, Detroit Lions should all be in the mix unless someone makes a move for Watson or Rodgers. Philly, Miami, NYG, Carolina, and Indy all have guys right now, but could be in the market if the team underperforms.
Denver is another team that could/should be in the market. The LA Rams probably should be looking for Stafford's replacement but doesn't have a 1st rounder until? Sneaky team is ATL looking for Ryan's replacement. Such a huge cap hit these next couple of seasons so getting someone to take over in 2024 could be the plan.
Just how bad is Houston this year without Deshaun in the lineup?
Hopefully the Steelers!
What about the Vikings? Kirk's contact is done after next season. Mond is doubtful to be a viable solution.
Dolphins if they don’t get Watson.
Add Atlanta,I know they didn’t do it this year, but gets easier as time goes on.
Who I think *will* target a QB in the 1st:
Denver Broncos, unless the unlikely trade for Aaron Rodgers happens. They should be picking in the top 10 due to the strength of the rest of the division.
Who I think *could* target a QB in the 1st:
Indianapolis Colts if Carson Wentz flops and they bench him before he reaches 75% of snaps played. Not sure they’ll have a top pick, but if next year’s QB class is as deep as it sounds like it may be, some may fall to the middle of the 1st.
Pittsburgh Steelers, if Tomlin decides Dwayne Haskins can’t be a viable starter one day.
