Tom Brady capturing his fifth Super Bowl title has set off an avalanche of debate around who’s the greatest quarterback of all-time. But what about the quarterbacks in the NFL right now? There’s plenty of elite talent in the league today, and it is worth considering which current signal callers are the most talented and mean the most to their respective teams right now. So we thought we would rank the 10 best quarterbacks in the league today, in the wake of the 2016 season. You can likely guess who our number one pick is. But the other nine choices may surprise you. Check it out.
10. Derek Carr – Oakland Raiders
For the first time in a generation, the Oakland Raiders seem to be settled at the quarterback position. In fact, the team appears to have found a franchise QB in young Derek Carr, who impressed enough in his third season in the league that he was mentioned in MVP talks by analysts and commentators. And why not? Carr led the Raiders to a 12-3 record before suffering a broken fibula in his leg that put him out for the final game of the regular season and the playoffs. Still, Carr’s play at the quarterback position and his leadership lifted Oakland to its first postseason appearance since 2002. Along the way, Carr set a franchise record for passing yards and staged several late game rallies that led the Raiders to victory Oh, and he was named to his second consecutive Pro Bowl in 2016 too. If he can stay healthy, there’s no telling where Derek Carr will take Oakland (or Las Vegas) in the future.
