6. Justin Herbert (Los Angeles Chargers)

• Cumulative ranking: 5.67
• Highest ranking: 4
• Lowest ranking: 7

We've reached the top-tier of NFL quarterbacks. For most voters, these six QBs were a pretty unanimous top-six with only a couple of outliers. First up is Los Angeles Chargers star Justin Herbert.

Herbert has taken the NFL by storm in his first two seasons proving scouting reports wrong and establishing himself as one of the best quarterbacks in the league.

The former Oregon star finished with 38 touchdowns and 15 interceptions in 2021 throwing for over 5,000 yards and averaging 7.6 yards per attempt.

It's a shame we didn't get to see Herbert in the postseason, but his time will come soon enough. At just 23-years-old, he's already an elite QB.

5. Joe Burrow (Cincinnati Bengals)

• Cumulative ranking: 5.50
• Highest ranking: 3
• Lowest ranking: 8

Joe Burrow's rankings were nearly identical to Herbert's, but he narrowly edges out his former draft-mate. Burrow helped lead the Cincinnati Bengals from the NFL's basement to the AFC Championship Game in a matter of two seasons.

Following a promising rookie season that was cut short by a torn ACL, there was understandably some concern over how well Burrow would play upon his return. He wasted little time putting those concerns to bed.

The former first overall pick threw for 34 touchdowns and 14 interceptions leading the NFL with a highly-efficient 70.4 completion percentage all while averaging an NFL-best 8.9 yards per attempt.

Sure, he was undoubtedly aided by maybe the best receiving corps in the league, but he was also sacked more than any QB as well. Joe Burrow is an elite QB.
