Building the Perfect NFL Quarterback

Screen Shot 2018-01-25 at 3.58.57 PMTake a step into the laboratory of Dr. Football and today he will be forming the ultimate QB based on the traits of present-day quarterbacks.  We will be presenting the traits of the Ultimate Quarterback below.

Head: Tom Brady


This may come as no surprise, Brady is the best quarterback of all time, as well as one of the smartest football players ever to step on a field. Brady has shown the consistent ability to beat defenses with his eyes and IQ leads him to this coveted positions.

Arm Strength: Matthew Stafford2014-11-0910_30_03.gif

This one was pretty much a toss-up between a few players other players. The ball explodes out of Stafford’s hands unlike any other player in the NFL today. In his career, Stafford has made some incredible throws deep down the field. Stafford’s incredible arm strength is a key to his game and adds another dynamic to our perfect QB.

Touch: Drew Brees


This one wasn’t all too easy. There are quite a few of great QBs with some pretty darn good “touch”. Drew Brees led the league in completion percentage and is as good of a thrower as they get. Will be interesting to see where he ends up for next year, still believe he is more than likely to stay with the Saints, but who knows. Brees controlling the “touch” puts the ball in trusty hands.

Torso/Strength: Cam Newton


At 6’5 245, Cam Newton is a freak of nature. He is athletic, muscular, flexible, and has proven he is strong enough to take a pounding from the strongest of defenders. Core strength is incredibly important for quarterbacks and there is no doubt that Newton leads the pack here.

Speed: Tyrod Taylor


There are quite a few speedy quarterbacks today, including Wilson, Newton, Maroita, etc. But Tyrod is the fastest of this group in my eyes. Tyrod’s speed makes a great addition to this “ultimate quarterback” by adding another dimension to his game. Good luck keeping him in the pocket.

Ability to maneuver in pocket: Aaron RodgersRodgers.gif

Aaron Rodgers finally makes the list, and for good reason. Rodgers was just behind in quite a bit of the previous categories. The way Rodgers has been able to maneuver throughout the pocket in his career is unprecedented. Rodgers has been able to avoid sacks and keep plays going like no one else has.

There you have it, the Ultimate Quarterback. One could only imagine the damage this player could do on a football field, given these attributes. I hope you enjoyed your read and make sure to follow us on Twitter @ProSportsFandom
