Football Betting Review: Ranking the NFL’s Quarterbacks, 1-32

Posted by Mila Anderson on July 10, 2015 in

Now that the NFL’s training camps are approaching, it’s time online betting fans think about how the various teams stack up at the quarterback position.


Matt-Cassel#32 Matt Cassel (or EJ Manuel or Tyrod Taylor)

Or whoever the Bills send out there.

Robert-Griffin-III#31 Robert Griffin III

Less mobility combined with field reading and mechanics that are still poor.

Marcus-Mariota#30 Marcus Mariota

Sure, he’s accurate, but he’s about to get clobbered.

Josh-McCown#29 Josh McCown

Yes, he’s athletic and he can stand in the pocket. But he’s never led an offense through a season.

Brian-Hoyer#28 Brian Hoyer

He can throw well on the run, but he’s easy to figure out when you watch the tape.

geno-smith#27 Geno Smith

His decision making has been awful. It’s possible to fix, but he still needs pocket toughness too.

Jameis-Winston#26 Jameis Winston

He has the skills, but he has to show that he can use them in the NFL.

Blake-Bortles#25 Blake Bortles

He’s a terrific athlete and could jump up this list if the Jacksonville Jaguars can block.

Nick-Foles#24 Nick Foles

Very methodical, but he could manage a ball control scheme well.

Teddy-Bridgewater#23 Teddy Bridgewater

What will he do when the Vikings open up the offense?

sam-bradford#22 Sam Bradford

A real wild card given all of his knee woes. He does have the accuracy for a spread scheme.

Colin-Kaepernick#21 Colin Kaepernick

Decision making is a concern, but he has the physical tools for the position.

andy-dalton#20 Andy Dalton

Just spin that roulette wheel.

Alex-Smith#19 Alex Smith

He’s more mobile than you think, but he is a game manager.

Derek-Carr#18 Derek Carr

Could the Raiders have found their first franchise quarterback since Rich Gannon…or Jim Plunkett?

jay-cutler#17 Jay Cutler

On the field his gifts are significant. However, he makes mistakes by the bushel, and he’s not a leader.

Ryan-Tannehill#16 Ryan Tannehill

A terrific pure passer and more athletic than you might think.

cam-newton#15 Cam Newton

He can make amazing throws – for both teams.

carson-palmer#14 Carson Palmer

If he can return to his 2014 form, watch out.

Matthew-Stafford#13 Matthew Stafford

No one has a better arm, and he’s finally learning discipline.

Russell-Wilson#12 Russell Wilson

He has unique skills … And unique limitations.

matt-ryan#11 Matt Ryan

He’s finally playing well on the move, but he still has a reputation for losing in the playoffs.

eli-manning#10 Eli Manning

He has the skins on the wall as a field general, and he can put balls through small windows.

joe-flacco#9 Joe Flacco

He might have the league’s strongest arm, and his playoff run in 2012 was simply incredible.

tony-romo#8 Tony Romo

He’s become much more consistent and has an amazing line in front of him.

drew-brees#7 Drew Brees

The results haven’t been there, and his physical skills are on the decline, but no one is a better pure porgression passer.

philip-rivers#6 Philip Rivers

No one looks better dropping back and passing from the pocket.

Ben-Roethlisberger#5 Ben Roethlisberger

He’s still talented, and now he knows how to lead a team down the field.

peyton-manning#4 Peyton Manning

His game has always been more cerebral, but his skills are still all there.

aaron-rodgers#3 Aaron Rodgers

He’s physically gifted and also highly intelligent.

andrew-luck#2 Andrew Luck

No one extends plays in the pocket better.

tom-brady#1 Tom Brady

Given the lack of talent that’s been around him, no quarterback has done more in this era.
