Ryan has evolved in almost every facet since being drafted third overall in 2008. His reads are better. His arm is strong and he can extend plays with his legs. Receiving tandem of Julio Jones and Roddy White will make him even better.
9. steelers — Ben Roethlisberger
Roethlisberger, Brady and Eli Manning are the only QBs on this list with two Super Bowl titles. He’s extremely tough and consistently plays despite injuries. His size (6-5, 241) and willingness to take a hit allow him to extend plays as well as anyone.
10. Chargers — Philip Rivers
He has thrown for more than 4,000 yards in four straight seasons, but 2011 was a down year. For the first time since 2008, his passer rating (88.7) was below 101.4. A career-high 20 INT had a lot to do with that.
