B/R NFL 1000: Top 65 Quarterbacks

Who is the best quarterback in the NFL based on the 2012 season? Who's No. 10? No. 30? No. 60?

Our B/R NFL 1,000 series is back, taking a look at each position by scouting, charting, grading and finally ranking each player.

The B/R 1,000 metric is based heavily on scouting each player and grading the key criteria for each position. The criteria are weighted according to importance for a possible best score of 100.

Potential is not taken into consideration. Nor are career accomplishments.

Quarterbacks are judged on accuracy (30 points), arm strength (20), decision making (30), mechanics (15) and mobility (5). 

In the case of ties, I have asked myself, "Which player would I rather have on my team?" and set the rankings accordingly.

Subjective? Yes. But ties are no fun.

Each player was scouted by myself and a team of experienced evaluators, with these key criteria in mind. The following scouting reports and grades are the work of months of film study from our team.
