Philadelphia Eagles Jalen Hurts lands at No. 1 in a PFF ranking of NFC quarterbacks after first wave of NFL free agency.
As the 2023 NFL season fast approaches, there’s a new hierarchy in the NFC at the quarterback position.
Tom Brady has retired, Aaron Rodgers is on his way to the AFC, and Jalen Hurts will shortly reset the quarterback pay scale after an All-Pro season and MVP runner-up.
Hurts has been a dynamic rushing threat for the Philadelphia Eagles, and his development as a passer has been significant.
His PFF passing grade has gone from 57.5 in Year 1 to 69.2 in Year 2 and finally 83.8 in Year 3 on his way to a Super Bowl.
If the Eagles maintain a competitive team around him, there’s no reason to think Hurts can’t back up his 2022 performance, and he may not be done improving.
Hurts finished ahead of Kyler Murray (Cardinals), Matthew Stafford (Rams), Kirk Cousins (Vikings) and Dak Prescott (Cowboys).
