Every year during the offseason, former quarterback Ron Jaworski ranks all 32 starting quarterbacks in the NFL. It’s a countdown that I very much look forward to, and this year was no different.
Let’s take a look at the rankings this year.

All right, time to break these rankings down. I’m a nerd when it comes to quarterbacks so I’m going to throw my two cents into the ring.
I previously covered Matt Cassel being ranked as the worst quarterback and I would agree honestly. Ryan Fitzpatrick isn’t much better and it’s still baffling to me that the Houston Texans haven’t acquired another quarterback to compete with him for the starting spot. Yes, they have Tom Savage, but he was a fourth round draft pick. Fourth round selections don’t typically start right away so it looks like Fitzpatrick will be leading the way for the Texans after a short stay with the Titans.
Speaking of the Titans, Jake Locker is ranked in the bottom five of the countdown. Locker had a lot of potential coming out of the 2011 draft, but has been bitten by the injury bug a lot during his three year career. He was looking decent last year until he was once again injured and out for the rest of the season.
