The 27 Club (Volume II): Ranking The New Generation of NFL Quarterbacks



Aside from the immortal and everlasting Tom Brady, the 2019 NFL season's primary concentration and attention grabber is the young quarterback revolution taking place right in front of our hopeful eyes. Finally, the rest of the league has something to look forward to if they don't have a Brady, Rodgers, Brees, or Wilson as their signal-caller. As the Ben Roethlisbergers and Eli Mannings of the world descend into injury limbo and deserved backup roles, the modern generation of young gunners are taking advantage of their first time in the brightest of spotlights.


Below is a ranking of the league's best young quarterbacks which will be updated semi-regularly throughout the rest of the NFL season.


The 27 Club


The Uglies


23. Luke Falk (24 years old)

2019 Season Stats (2 GP/1 GS): 296 YDS, 0 TD/1 INT, 76.2 QBR

Ranking Adjustment: -1


Luke Falk didn't even play this week (the Jets had a bye) and he still managed to move down my rankings (because Haskins had to be included after playing in his first NFL game).


22. Josh Rosen (22 years old)

2019 Season Stats (4 GP/2 GS): 482 YDS, 1 TD/3 INT, 57.7 QBR

Ranking Adjustment: -1


In their closest game of the year (a loss to the Chargers by the score of 30-10), the Dolphins actually had a flash of hope with Rosen behind center. He threw for one touchdown and a single interception, while completing 17 of his 24 pass attempts against a quality Los Angeles defense. He had the best passer rating (88.9) of the season for the 'Phins, which is certainly a small glimpse of hope for the terribly ran franchise. Still, Rosen's upside isn't as appealing as the man who was inserted ahead of him at the #21 spot in my rankings.


The Underwhelmers


21. Dwayne Haskins (22 years old)
