8. Lamar Jackson, Baltimore Ravens
I still do not think Lamar Jackson has an NFL talent arm. He is the most electric quarterback in the NFL, but I don’t think he could ever win multiple games with his arm.
Jackson’s need for improvements in his passing ability is why he sits at No. 8 on the list.
7. Derek Carr, Las Vegas Raiders
I debated having Carr at 7 or 6 and went with 7. This may be too low, but it’s hard to rank him above the guys I have above him.
Carr is incredible, though, and I wish the Dolphins had a quarterback of his caliber. He could be due for a monster year now that he has Josh McDaniels and Davante Adams.
6. Russell Wilson, Denver Broncos
It’s still wild to me that Russell Wilson will be starting for the Denver Broncos this season. Wilson stunk last year and got hurt, so I think the change of scenery was just what he needed.
The Broncos are loaded with talent, but they never had the quarterback they needed. They do now, and I think Wilson has a chance to get an MVP vote finally, or two this season.
5. Joe Burrow, Cincinnati Bengals
Joe Burrow is an elite NFL quarterback. Some Dolphins fans will go to their grave saying he isn’t, and just because they are mad that he’s so much better than Tua Tagovailoa.
Burrow is a leader who has the arm, intangibles, and mindset to be one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL for a very long time.
