There will be a lot written over the next two months on the depth and long-term potential of this year's NFL Draft quarterback class. The primary headlines will be that it lacks "immediate starters", that it's not "top heavy" and there are a plethora of developmental options. These are all subjectively true but only time will tell. For now it'll be an ongoing subjective discussion around who looks the part and who will be out of the league in a year or two. What's interesting though is unlike recent years, there is some depth to traditional pro style Quarterbacks and intriguing athletic spread offense Quarterbacks. I wrote about and listed those that surprised or disappointed at the combine earlier today. Jon Gruden also published an synopsis of the top 7 prospects after the top 2 (Goff & Wentz).
My way too early prediction is we'll see 3 QB's selected in round 1 (Wentz @2, Goff @7 and Lynch in the 20's), then a handful of guys selected in rounds 3-5 (Cook, Hackenberg, Kessler, Prescott, Hogan among this group) who will be selected to be developmental backup types in the near term. What everybody agrees with is outside of Goff, none of these QB's should be expected to contribute in '16.
ESPN writer, Mike Clay, has posted a top 100 fantasy rookies for 2016 list. It's more than a bit premature and too heavily weighted to the WR position this year. Simply put the receiver position is overrated, there are no size/speed freaks (think Julio Jones, Calvin Johnson, DThomas types), and few guys who project to even be featured, go-to receivers in the NFL. There are plenty of talented guys who will contribute, and a few will become great in time but it's a year where guys with glaring weaknesses (eg Will Fuller's hands) who get selected in the first round because the top of the position is weaker than it's been in several years.
This year will be above average at the RB position, and down the road, 2 or 3 years from now, the QB position will eventually bare out to being strong. Relative to the past three years though this WR class is below average at best.
