Now that NFL training camp is in full swing, we’ve decided to give you our annual divisional player rankings. First, we ranked the AFC East quarterbacks. Now we are taking a sneak peek at the AFC North. The quarterback position is the most important position in football. However, they need high caliber players surrounding them as much as anybody in the league.
Depending on the way you look at it, Johnny Manziel is the biggest quarterback name in the AFC North, if not the whole NFL. Entering his rookie season, Manziel should be in back alley brawl with Brian Hoyer for the starting quarterback position. Although Hoyer doesn’t have a ton of NFL playing experience, we’ve seen flashes of brilliance in his limited role.
In case you missed it, there are two other Super Bowl winning quarterbacks in the AFC North. Joe Flacco won the championship in 2013, while Ben Roethlisberger has been to the mountaintop twice in his career. Still, it looks like both quarterbacks will fly under the radar until week one of the NFL season.
If Johnny Manziel has a lot to prove, Andy Dalton must be on the hot seat with the Cincinnati Bengals. You’ll see why as the season progresses.
Overall, this is a great group of quarterbacks and most of them have playoff experience.
Here’s our AFC North quarterback rankings.
