Joe Burrow in Top Five of Latest Quarterback Rankings, Draws Tom Brady Comparisons

The Bengals star is considered one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL.

CINCINNATI — Joe Burrow is a top five quarterback in the NFL according to league executives, coaches and players. 

The 25-year-old is fifth in ESPN's rankings. They surveyed more than 50 different executives, scouts, coaches and players during the process. 

Burrow was ranked has high as No. 2. At least one person didn't have him in their top 10. 

"I hate to compare anybody to Brady, but he might be the closest thing," a veteran NFL offensive coach told ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. "What, did he take nine sacks in that playoff game [against Tennessee]? Didn't flinch. Hung in there. He's just got a toughness about him and the ability to think through a game."

Aaron Rodgers was first on the list, followed by Patrick Mahomes, Josh Allen and Brady. 

Burrow was ranked ahead of Matthew Stafford (6th), Justin Herbert (7th) and Russell Wilson (8th). 

"On the plays where you have to hang in the pocket and you know you have to wait that extra split-second to get the ball on time, knowing you'll probably take a hit, he'll (Burrow) stand in there and wait," the coach told Fowler. "And teammates love him for that, I promise you."

Burrow was an honorable mention on last year's list. Now he's considered one of the five best quarterbacks on the planet.
