NFL QB rankings
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.

11. Texans — Matt Schaub
His 61.0 completion percentage in 2011 was his worst in five seasons with Houston
12. Eagles — Michael Vick
A poor ratio of 18 TD/14 INT last season, plus missed another three games due to injury
13. Panthers — Cam Newton
Reigning Rookie of the Year was a nightmare for defenses because of his size and arm
14. Ravens — Joe Flacco
Last season’s 57.6 completion percentage was his first below 60 in four NFL seasons
15. 49ers — Alex Smith
