Today, they released their quarterback rankings, and Miami Dolphins signal-caller Tua Tagovailoa was not named in the top-ten at the position. Instead, he received the final “honorable mention” spot — essentially ranking him as the 15th best quarterback in the National Football League.
The top-ten list is as follows:
- Patrick Mahomes — Kansas City Chiefs
- Joe Burrow — Cincinnati Bengals
- Josh Allen — Buffalo Bills
- Aaron Rodgers — New York Jets
- Justin Herbert — Los Angeles Chargers
- Jalen Hurts — Philadelphia Eagles
- Lamar Jackson — Baltimore Ravens
- Trevor Lawrence — Jacksonville Jaguars
- Dak Prescott — Dallas Cowboys
- Matthew Stafford — Los Angeles Rams
The quarterbacks listed ahead of Tagovailoa in the “honorable mention” category of ESPN’s rankings are: Deshaun Watson of the Cleveland Browns, Kirk Cousins of the Minnesota Vikings, Jared Goff of the Detroit Lions and Derek Carr of the New Orleans Saints.
One could argue for Tagovailoa to be listed ahead of a number of the players who rank higher than him on this list, but his durability concerns do play a factor in how this list played out according to Fowler.
How do you feel about Tagovailoa’s standing on this list? Do you feel be should be ranked higher? Should he be ranked lower? Let me know in the comments below or on Twitter at @MBrave13. Fins up!
