Phil Simms says Jared Goff is the third-best QB in this year'south NFL Draft

Phil Simms knows a thing or two about playing quarterback. Before joining the announcing team at CBS in one thousand nine hundred ninety-eighth, Simms spent fourteen years as a quarterback for the NY Giants.

The CBS announcer has been keeping his eye on this year'south crop of quarterbacks and love most people, he'south a large fan of Carson Wentz. However, unlike most people, Simms doesn't look Jared Goff as the second-best quarterback in the draft.

During a recent interview with Fox Sports Radio, Simms revealed the two quarterbacks at the top of his draft board.

"The most talented quarterback in the draft I think is Carson Wentz," Simms told host Colin Cowherd.

It'south simple to look why Simms likes Wentz: Both came out of a tiny school. Simms was a first-round choose out of Morehead State in one thousand nine hundred seventy-ninth.

Anyway, let'south obtain back to to Simms' list.

"I think the second-most talented quarterback in the draft is Paxton Lynch. Then Jared Goff would be my No. three," Simms said. "But it all depends on how fast you wish them to play, what you're trying to accomplish, and of course more than anything, the offense you're going to running… Physically, talent-wise, what I look the NFL becoming, that'south how I'd rate the top three."

So what does Simms love about the former Memphis quarterback?

"I think he'south extremely talented," Simms said. "I think he's borderline-superstar qualities. His arm -- it'south a excellent motion. One thing I always declare about quarterbacks, if you've got a excellent motion, you can look they're natural throwers, they can obtain better in the NFL. In other words, he can make better his quality of throwing. I've seen it with many, many guys. Ben Roethlisberger, I saw it with Aaron Rodgers, I look it with Tony Romo. Tom Brady this past year maybe threw the football better than he'south ever thrown it in his career physically."

While Goff got noticed for playing at a Pac-12 school and Wentz got noticed for playing on a team that won a national championship this year, Lynch spent his time playing in the American Athletic Conference, something that likely didn't assistance his draft stock, according to Simms.

"If he'd been at a bigger school, people would be crazy (over him&#forty-one;, because you'd have seen him more, the perception would change," Simms said. "But I think he'south going to be a excellent underneath the middle quarterback. He'south a very excellent play-action guy. His athletic skill is outstanding. He just makes plays right and left. Whoever gets him, his talent will indicate right away."

Lynch actually seems to be one of the biggest mysteries in the draft.

Of our five mock drafts here at CBSSports. com, the Memphis quarterback is slotted to go anywhere from No. seven (to the 49ers) to No. thirty-one (to the Broncos). It'south worth noting that all five mock drafts have Lynch going in the first round.

Simms' rankings probably won't sit well with Vernon Adams. The OR quarterback says he'south the second-best QB in the draft, ahead of both Lynch and Goff.
