r/NFL Ranks Starting QBs - Part 3


Part 2 of the voting process has completed, and we saw a significant drop in the voting, gathering just 1,957 votes. However, we still got some nice data on which QBs should be rated where. Let's start with the Tier 5 QBs.

Rank Quarterback 32nd Place Votes 31st Place Votes 30th Place Votes Tier Voting Position
32 Tom Savage 958 472 500 31
31 Josh McCown 558 842 557 32
30 Brian Hoyer 414 643 900 30

Tier 5 came out nice a clean in terms of data, as each QB received at least 43% of the vote at the ranking where the wound up. Unfortunately Tier 4 was not as clean, as we wound up with 2 spots each seperated by just 9 votes. Both Mike Glennon and Cody Kessler received the most votes for the 27th ranked position. The same thing occurred at 25the between Blake Bortles and Trevor Siemian, with Siemian getting 9 more votes. In both cases, with the vote so close, I used a similar formula to the previous post whereby each vote was assigned a point value (1 point for each 29th place vote, 2 for each 28th, etc.)

Rank Quarterback 29th Place Votes 28th Place Votes 27th Place Votes 26th Place Votes 25th Place Votes 24th Place Votes Tier Voting Position
29 Jared Goff 700 486 372 221 125 53 27
28 Mike Glennon 438 466 483 354 165 51 28
27 Cody Kessler 399 471 474 361 191 61 29
26 Trevor Siemian 146 243 329 510 577 152 26
25 Blake Bortles 232 252 239 399 568 267 25
24 Tyrod Taylor 42 39 60 112 331 1,373 24

With the formula I used, Kessler edged out Glennon with a score of 5,528 to 5,366. Bortles beat out Siemian by a much closer score, 7,491 to 7,456. Also, Tyrod Taylor dominated the voting for 24th, receiving 70.16% of the total 24th place votes. With that in mind, the poll this time around will include an optional selection for where Taylor should be ranked in Tier 3. This is not required, however with so many people feeling he was underrated I thought it would be a fun exercise. With that in mind, let's move on to the links.
