Ranking NFL teams that most need to draft a quarterback
The Bears signed Tampa Bay backup Mike Glennon. The 49ers signed Bears backup Brian Hoyer. The Jets went for Browns backup Josh McCown. The Texans are going with backup Tom Savage after trading former starter Brock Osweiler. Who knows what the Browns are doing.
Next year’s quarterback class will almost certainly be better. Sam Bradford, Kirk Cousins, Drew Brees and Jimmy Garoppolo are among the unrestricted free agents. USC’s Sam Darnold and UCLA’s Josh Rosen are among the top college QBs who will be draft-eligible.
Still, some teams need quarterbacks right now and are expected to draft QBs later this month. Cleveland, the New York Jets, Arizona and Houston are among the teams that could pick one in the first round from a group of four QBs: Mitch Trubisky, Deshaun Watson, Patrick Mahomes and DeShone Kizer. Of course, teams will be trying to find the next Dak Prescott in the middle to late rounds of the draft.
Right-hander Kendall Graveman has been placed on the 10-day disabled list by the Oakland Athletics with a strained right shoulder.
Graveman started Opening Day in place of the injured Sonny Gray and began the season 2-0 with a 2.00 ERA in his first three starts. But he exited after just five innings and 74 pitches Friday against Houston, and manager Bob Melvin said afterward the pitcher couldn’t get loose. Both Melvin and Graveman expected he would make his next start.
Graveman now thinks he’ll only be skipped once.

“I think if we give it a couple more days then we’ll be back to normal, back to where we need to be,” Graveman said. “I expect to miss one start, and then come back on the road.”
