7. Jalen Hurts (Philadelphia Eagles)

2021 Stats (in 15 games):

  • 8-7 record
  • 61.3 completion percentage
  • 3,144 passing yards
  • 16 touchdowns, 9 interceptions
  • 784 rushing yards, 10 touchdowns

Some might be wondering how Jalen Hurts ranks higher on this list than some of the quarterbacks who put up better passing numbers than him last season like Jimmy Garoppolo and Carson Wentz.

But it’s Hurts’ impressive running ability that makes him more valuable than the guys behind him on this list.

Heading into his third season with the Eagles, the former Oklahoma quarterback has the potential to have a breakout performance during the 2022 campaign.

Everyone knows how dangerous Hurts can be as a runner with the football in his hands. But can he put the pieces together to become a solid passer next season as well?

If not, Philadelphia has already been loading up on selections in the 2023 NFL Draft in case they need to find a new starting quarterback to lead their franchise after the upcoming season.
