5. Bo Nix, Oregon

There are few quarterbacks in college history with the statistical success that Bo Nix has had during his time between Oregon and Auburn. However, these stats don't tell the whole story in terms of his abilities to play QB and while there may be some upside there, we really don't see it with Nix, especially so early in the first round.

In 14 games, Nix completed 77.4 percent of his passes for 4,508 yards, 45 touchdowns, and three interceptions. He ran a very simple Oregon offense that didn't ask him to do a whole lot when it came to processing defenses to near perfection. Although, this may be more of a negative than a positive. Almost anytime the Ducks needed Nix to make a play following his first read, he looked flustered and struggled to make things happen.

Nix really hasn't shown that he can run an NFL-level offense to a successful degree and when you consider that he's going to be 24 by the time the 2024 season starts, he won't have much time to develop. While he could end up surprising some folks, we just don't see him being the kind of guy that will help bring home a title to an organization.
