4. Spencer Rattler, South Carolina

Spencer Rattler had an up-and-down college career after being one of the best players in high school. Rattler has a five-star recruit coming out of Pinnacle, the No. 1 pro-style quarterback in the 2019 class, and the No. 11 recruit nationally.

He finished his high school career at Pinnacle with 11,063 passing yards, 116 passing touchdowns, and 33 interceptions.

Rattler committed to Oklahoma with Lincoln Riley and was the No. 1 recruit in that class. Unfortunately for him, things didn't work with the Sooners. Midway through the 2021 season, he was benched in favor of Caleb Williams and he transferred to South Carolina where he regained his swagger.

The Arizona native is one of the most natural passers in this class and has a rocket of an arm. Rattler can rip the football into any tight window and plays with great anticipation.

He also has the athleticism to make plays with his legs when needed. Rattler loves to push the ball downfield and tricks out opponents with pump fakes.

In his collegiate career with Oklahoma and South Carolina, Rattler notched 10,807 passing yards with 77 passing touchdowns and 32 interceptions.

Rattler has the arm talent and confidence to play at the NFL level but he needs some time to develop. That's why New York is a perfect destination. They have a 40-year-old signal caller and Rattler won't be asked to play immediately.

Learning from Rodgers would help both Rattler and the Jets in the present and the future.
