5. Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers

  • Average position: 4.67
  • Highest position: 3

This is the perfect case of the difference between a current talent list and a build your franchise around list. If this is a build your franchise around list, then Rodgers would probably fall into the around 10th because of his age.

However, that is not the parameters that we are going with and heading into 2020, we still have to consider Aaron Rodgers as one of the five best quarterbacks in the league. Alex even thinks he is the third-best.

4. Deshaun Watson, Houston Texans

  • Average position: 4
  • Highest position: 3

Poor Deshaun Watson. First, he has to deal with a terrible offensive line that is taking years off of his career and now he has to deal with an offense that traded one of the best receivers in the league for an injured, battered down running back.

Watson is so talented and I would trade Justin Herbert and multiple first-round picks for Watson if that was possible. He would be so fun to watch on the LA Chargers.

3. Lamar Jackson, Baltimore Ravens

  • Average position: 3.5
  • Highest position: 3

The reigning MVP did not check in any higher than third on any of our lists and that is fair. While Jackson was great in 2020, he does have to do it again in 2021 and beyond and does have the advantage of having an entire offense and scheme around him.

Can you plug Jackson into any team and will he succeed the same? Maybe, maybe not. Once we get this high on the list we really start to split hairs and there is nothing wrong with him being ranked third.

2. Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks

  • Average position: 2
  • Highest position: 2

The Bolt Beat staff unanimously agreed that Russell Wilson is the second-best quarterback in the NFL. Wilson checks all of the boxes. He is dual-threat, has a great and accurate arm and has one of the best football minds that we have ever seen.

Wilson has never had a losing season despite some years that were supposed to be rebuilding years and despite all of this, he somehow has never received a single MVP vote. Ridiculous.

1. Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City Chiefs

  • Average position: 1
  • Highest position: 1

Oh yeah, this guy. The guy that already has a 5,000-yard and 50-touchdown season, an MVP and a Super Bowl MVP under his belt. The guy that just signed the richest extension in sports history. The guy that the LA Chargers have to play for the next 12 years.

Next. Who will be the best rookie in 2020?

Yeah, I heard he is pretty good.
