Who did we miss?  Here are a few fun facts.

Some may ask where is Tua Tagovailoa on this list? Well, let’s be honest.

Tua has been really inconsistent and has been bitten by the injury bug often since he took over the starting job in Miami with the Dolphins. Remember, he is a first-round pick, so the expectation was that he would put up big numbers like Burrow or Herbert.

For those Jordan Love fans, sorry guys. One start won’t get your man on the list of the best quarterback draftees of 2020.

All of the top three quarterbacks on this list are a part of a dynamic quarterback-wide receiver duo. Burrow has Ja’Marr Chase and Tee Higgins. Herbert has Keenan Allen and Mike Williams, and Hurts will have A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith with him in 2022.

Unlike Burrow and Herbert, this will be the first year for Hurts to have a talented duo at wide receiver, which is another reason to expect his numbers to improve this season.

Did anyone notice that the three most successful quarterbacks in the draft class of 2020 all have names that start with the letter J?

Doubters have discussed the Eagles getting rid of the Hurts, but why would you? He is improving every year and deserves to be looked upon as one of the best signal-callers of the 2020 draft class. Expect big things during the coming season.
