Illinois athletic director sets expectations for 2019 at bowl game or bust: “I fully expect it to happen” Adding to the pressure on head coach Lovie Smith, the Illini are expecting a bowl berth at a minimum this upcoming season.

Who are the top QBs in the 2019 class now? Those 14 starts are far fewer than NFL teams would like to see before they invest in a first-round quarterback. There is a recent precedent, however, as Mitchell Trubisky started just 13 games at North Carolina before the Bears took him No. 2 overall in

Everyone is focused on the incoming rookie class of quarterbacks, but the five starters drafted in 2018 are all facing huge challenges next season.

The big picture: Last year, all five first-round quarterbacks — Baker Mayfield, Sam Darnold, Josh Allen, Josh Rosen and Lamar Jackson — got significant time under center. At least four of them will be starting from the first week of the season in 2019.

But what should fans expect?

Because of his unique situation in Arizona, we’ll open up by discussing expectations for Rosen.

Josh Rosen: Nobody knows if Rosen is going to be the starter for the Arizona Cardinals, or if he’ll be traded. What we know for certain is that his rookie campaign was absolutely brutal.

We take a look at what the Chiefs can expect from their second - year players in 2018. The Chiefs are in a bit of a unique situation when it comes to second - year players. In 2017, only the Atlanta Falcons got less snaps out of their rookie class than the Chiefs.

a National Football League ( NFL ) franchise often rests on the quarterback; thus, teams will go to great lengths to find a "franchise quarterback" to build around for the long term.[5]. Note: The players listed here are the starting quarterbacks in each team' s most recently played regular season game, and

If he stays in Arizona, that trend might continue.

  • The Cardinals still feature a poor offensive line and are set to feature a rookie head coach who is bringing a college-style offense to the NFL.
  • Arizona features a weak receiving corps.

If Rosen is moved in a trade, there’s a chance he might not even play a single down in 2019. Either way, it’s hard to be excited about the immediate future for the UCLA product, even if he shows great potential in the long run.

Josh Allen: Accuracy was a problem for Allen last season. He also had little help up front and dealt with a running back corps that was banged up. However, this second-year starter had his front office retool the offense in a big way.

  • The offensive line was bolstered with the additions of center Mitch Morse and offensive tackle Ty Nsekhe.
  • The receiving corps, which was thin in 2019, was upgraded with the additions of deep threat John Brown and slot specialist Cole Beasley, who could break out in a big way.
  • Adding veteran running back Frank Gore was an underrated move. He is an expert pass-blocker whose knowledge of the game is unrivaled.

Allen should grow by leaps and bounds. If he can get more mechanically sound, he will develop into a deadly passer. His athleticism and willingness to attack defensive secondaries was already on display last year. It would be shocking if he didn’t take a huge step forward in his development.

High expectations for Holgorsen in return to Houston

High expectations for Holgorsen in return to Houston Coach Dana Holgorsen is thrilled to be back in Texas with the Houston Cougars after eight years in West Virginia. As the Cougars went through spring football practices, it didn't take long for him to be reminded of one of the reasons why he enjoys coaching in the state so much. ''I think these guys understand football,'' he said. ''That's the one thing about the state of Texas - and the majority of them are from Texas - is that they've done a lot of football stuff. Very well coached here in the state so they understand football better than what I'm used to.

The NFL Live crew examines why Andrew Luck, Ryan Tannehill and Case Keenum will have the biggest impact of QBs in new situations this season. A total of 15 NFL teams had different Week 1 starting quarterbacks this year than they had in 2017.

Lamar Jackson: Joe Flacco is in Denver because of what Jackson was able to do as a rookie starter through the second half of the season, and into the playoffs. The big issue here is Jackson must develop more as a pocket passer and stop fumbling the ball away.

However, the Ravens are doing what they can to facilitate his development.

  • Baltimore is completely revamping its offensive approach to suit Jackson’s unique skill-set. Coordinator Mark Roman has experience with dual-threat quarterbacks and should be great for Jackson.
  • Signing running back Mark Ingram should give Jackson a huge boost. Ingram is a dual-threat back who is dangerous as a receiver and tough to tackle in the trenches.
  • Blessed with a top offensive line, the run game should continue to thrive overall with Gus Bradley and Ingram sharing the load.
  • Look for Baltimore to draft a receiver early to give Jackson more weapons outside.

Overall, there will almost assuredly be growing pains this year from Jackson. He’s still raw and has been going back to his Heisman Trophy days at Louisville. Yet it appears the Ravens have a rock-solid plan to help him thrive.

Hauser brothers transferring from Marquette

Hauser brothers transferring from Marquette The Golden Eagles announced Monday that brothers Sam and Joey Hauser will transfer at the end of the semester. Sam Hauser, a junior, was a second-team all-Big East selection and averaged 15.1 points per game. Joey Hauser, a redshirt freshman, averaged 9.8 points per game. The brothers played together at Stevens Point Area Senior High School, leading the Panthers to two WIAA state championships together. #mubb Sam and Joey Hauser to transfer from @MarquetteU at conclusion of semester. pic.twitter.

Which rookie quarterbacks have the best chance of starting in the 2018 NFL season? New, 2 comments. Arizona paid Sam Bradford million to take over Carson Palmer’ s old job and could pay him another million more in 2019 . Rosen’ s job will be to make sure that second year doesn’t

Sam Darnold: The former USC star had plenty of learning experiences playing for a losing team as a rookie. He made some bone-headed plays but also showed off his elite talent.

The Jets did some big things in free agency that should help Darnold to grow in his second season.

  • Signing running back Le’Veon Bell should supercharge the offense.
  • Adding Josh Bellamy and Jamison Crowder were smart moves to improve the receiving corps.
  • Though not a free agent, adding offensive guard Kelechi Osemele was a huge move to improve the line.

Of course, the Jets also brought respected NFL offensive coach Adam Gase to help mold Darnold into a star. Whether he’s able to do that remains to be seen. It’s impossible not to be excited about Gang Green’s offense, and Darnold, this coming season. He should improve in every facet provided he stays healthy.

Baker Mayfield: Easily the best of the bunch last season, Mayfield was phenomenal as a rookie and brought hope to a fan base that has been craving a winner for decades.

Even more frightening for opposing teams is the fact that Cleveland got so much better this offseason, even before the draft.

Foles is set to hit free agency after his second run filling in for Carson Wentz.

  • The big fish was obviously Odell Beckham Jr. He’s one of the best receivers in the NFL and joins one of his best friends, fellow top receiver Jarvis Landry.
  • Off-field issues aside, Kareem Hunt is one of the most dangerous running backs in the league. When he returns from his suspension he’ll help the Browns in the second half.

Mayfield broke the NFL rookie single-season passing touchdown record (previously held by Peyton Manning), despite playing in just 14 games. He now has significantly more firepower on his side. He also has head coach Freddie Kitchens in his corner in a big way. As a result we expect him to have a huge second campaign as a pro.
