4. Justin Herbert, QB, Los Angeles Chargers
We've reached the top tier. Justin Herbert may not have found the same postseason success as the other three QBs ahead of him, but that shouldn't take away from what he's done on the field.
Herbert is one of the very best quarterbacks in the NFL, and his lack of postseason experience speaks more to the Chargers' failures than his own. The arrival of Kellen Moore is promising for Herbert and the Chargers' offense.
3. Joe Burrow, QB, Cincinnati Bengals
Leading your team to consecutive AFC Championship Games in two of your first three NFL seasons has to count for something. Joe Burrow is, without a doubt, an elite NFL quarterback.
Burrow has thrown for 69 touchdowns over the last two seasons and has helped make his team one of the best in football. Realistically, you can flip-flop him and the next player on this list.
2. Josh Allen, QB, Buffalo Bills
Josh Allen's Buffalo Bills have fallen victim to a stacked AFC over the last few years, but it's impossible to take away what the former Wyoming standout has been able to accomplish.
Allen is a certified freak who has helped revolutionize the quarterback position. At just 27 years old, he should continue to dominate opposing defenses for the foreseeable future.
1. Patrick Mahomes, QB, Kansas City Chiefs
What else is there to say at this point? Patrick Mahomes is in a tier of his own. He's the best quarterback in football, and if he continues on this trajectory, he'll be giving Tom Brady a run at the GOAT label down the road.
Mahomes has already won two MVPs, been named to five Pro Bowls, and earned three All-Pro honors in just five years as a starter. There is no question about it — he's the best quarterback in the NFL.
