6. Kyler Murray, QB, Arizona Cardinals
Kyler Murray has made a compelling case to enter the top five. His combination of arm talent, speed, and ability to make magic happen is unparalleled. If he improves his late-season resume, he will move up.
7. Matthew Stafford, QB, Los Angeles Rams
Matthew Stafford hasn't quite lived up to the sky-high expectations the Rams had when they traded for him last year. However, he is a proven talent with his first real chance to contend in the postseason. Don't be surprised if this season ends with Stafford leading Los Angeles to a Super Bowl trophy.
8. Lamar Jackson, QB, Baltimore Ravens
His playoff pedigree leaves something to be desired, but Lamar Jackson is a true star who has quickly become the best running QB in league history. Better than Cam Newton. Better than Michael Vick. Plus, he has a perennially underrated arm.
9. Joe Burrow, QB, Cincinnati Bengals
Speaking of players the Jets hope Zach Wilson could become, Joe Burrow shook off a rookie season knee injury to prove that he belongs in the upper-tier at his position.
10. Dak Prescott, QB, Dallas Cowboys
Dallas Cowboys quarterback, Dak Prescott, rounds out this tier of QBs. Prescott's 2021 has been a tale of two seasons, but his all-around game earns him a clear spot in the top-10.
