Quarterback is the most important position in all of sports. No other player can change the fate of a franchise as much as a quarterback. It’s why they are such valuable commodities. Often, teams use high draft picks to pick a quarterback, who is not nearly as talented as his draft stock suggests.

If a team has a bad defense and falls behind in games, an elite quarterback can lead them back into the game with infuriating determination.These guys are more than just players. They are leaders. They are captains of physical giants. And their teams’ success rest on their shoulders more often than not. A team with a top quarterback always has a chance. Every single year.
