The 2019 NFL Draft is thought to be loaded with defensive linemen who love to sack quarterbacks, but light on the signal callers themselves.

Like every other year, there will be some teams that draft quarterbacks high because they have to fill a need. But the cupboard of choices might be bare.

One draft analyst flat-out described next year's crop of quarterbacks as "bad." However, he did add that four QBs might be worth watching.

Ian Wharton says to keep an eye on Oregon's Justin Herbert, South Carolina's Jake Bentley, Ohio State's Dwayne Haskins and Missouri's Drew Lock.

The most intriguing name on this list is Haskins. He hasn't even won the starting job yet, but has big-time tools.

If Haskins does start for the Buckeyes this fall, will he be able to show enough that he'll leave for the NFL?

There's basically a full year until the 2019 draft, which means there's plenty of time for new names to emerge.

Time will tell if the 2019 quarterback class is better than expected, or just as weak as many anticipate.
