The 2022-23 NFL regular season is just around the corner and depth charts are set as we prepare to enter Week 1. But as is always the case, the depth charts see plenty of movement throughout the year.

Whether players get injured or end up being benched due to poor play, being No. 2 on the depth chart doesn’t mean that will be your permanent home.

And for quarterbacks, you are always looking over your shoulder.

There is a popular saying that the most popular player on the team is the backup quarterback because the starter is always blamed for the team’s mistakes. This year, there are a number of quarterbacks who start the season in the hot seat and will immediately be looking over their shoulder.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mitchell Trubisky leads the odds when it comes to the most likely signal-caller to be benched first this season. Steelers rookie Kenny Pickett is hot on his tail, and the team will be ready to give their first-round pick a look if things get off to a slow start.

Other players near the top of the list are Carolina Panthers‘ Baker Mayfield, Daniel Jones of the New York Giants, and Houston Texans signal-caller Davis Mills.

Is your favorite team’s starting quarterback on the list?
