How many quarterbacks are better than Dak Prescott?

How many quarterbacks are better than Dak Prescott?

There’s a lot of talk about where Dak Prescott ranks in the NFL so here is where he sits among the top quarterbacks in the league, to me. 

This first set of quarterbacks you’ll see are quarterbacks that are currently better than Dak and I’m not going to argue about it. 

#1 Patrick Mahomes 

The best quarterback in football is easily Patrick Mahomes. He’s won an MVP and Super Bowl MVP in his first two years starting. He will soon be the richest player in NFL history regardless of the deal Dak signs. 

#2 Russell Wilson 

To me, Wilson has done the most with the least amount of talent since winning the Super Bowl in 2013. His best receiver over the past 5-6 years has been Doug Baldwin and he still leads his team to double digit wins and the playoffs. 

#3 Drew Brees 

Drew Brees is the most accurate quarterback in NFL history. He’s turned Michael Thomas into one of the best receivers in football. 

#4 Lamar Jackson 

What’s scary about Jackson is that he can still grow so much as a passer and he’s already an NFL MVP. 

#5 Aaron Rodgers 

Call me crazy, but Rodgers is still an elite quarterback. The numbers might not look the same as it did when he won a Super Bowl but talent around him and him not being asked to do as much play as big of a role as any in that decline.

#6 Tom Brady

We will see Tom Brady play for the first time without Bill Belichick. We will also see Brady play with the best talent around him on offense since 2007 when he had Randy Moss. I think Brady still has another elite season or two in him. 

The next round of quarterbacks is where the arguments can begin.

#7 Deshaun Watson 

Deshaun Watson has elite level talent but there are some injury concerns with the amount of hits he takes. 

#8 Matt Ryan

Matt Ryan has 9 straight 4000 yard passing seasons and would have a Super Bowl win under his belt if it wasn’t for the biggest collapse in Super Bowl history. 

#9 Carson Wentz 

Talent isn’t an issue with Carson Wentz. Injury concerns along with questions about his leadership style are  huge questions that Wentz is facing.

#10 Dak Prescott 

Dak should be able to continue improving with the talent in place around him.

PS: Being the 10th best quarterback is not a slight at Dak. 

#11 Kirk Cousins

Kirk Cousins and Dak are the same guy to me. What I mean by that is both are capable of putting up elite numbers with the right amount of talent around them.

Cousins took his game to the next level with Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs similar to what Dak did when Amari Cooper arrived in Dallas.

#12 Matthew Stafford 

Another quarterback with health concerns and as he ages, they aren’t going away but he’s always been one of the most talented quarterbacks in the league. 

The last three names are guys that I am not willing to argue if they are better than Dak at this point in their careers.  

#13 Kyler Murray 

Heading into his second NFL season, I’m expecting big things from Kyler Murray with the addition of DeAndre Hopkins. 

#14 Jimmy Garoppolo 

All he does is win football games, but I don’t think the sample size is large enough to know how good he is.  

#15 Ben Roethlisberger 

Big Ben missed all but one game in 2019 so it remains to be seen what he still has left in the tank. An argument can be made that he’s already “washed.”
