3. Tom Brady

Even though Brady will be 38 at the beginning of this season, he’s still a top-three quarterback. Brady is somehow defying Father Time, throwing for 4,109 yards and 33 touchdowns last year. He’s also a four-time Super Bowl champ and one of the most clutch players of all time. Brady will start declining soon, but for now he still belongs this high on the list.

2. Andrew Luck

Luck is quickly becoming the best in the game today. Luck is a tremendous talent, putting the Indianapolis Colts on his back. Over his first three seasons, he has two AFC South titles and 12,957 yards and 86 touchdowns. Luck will get his Super Bowls in his career, perhaps even this year with the additions of Andre Johnson and Frank Gore. He’s lights out.

1. Aaron Rodgers

There is no debate about Rodgers. At this point, Rodgers has won a Super Bowl, wins the NFC North every season, and has thrown for more than 4,000 yards in five of his last seven seasons. Rodgers is 31 years old, so he should have another five years of legend-type play in him. Rodgers could go down as one of the greatest players to ever live, along with the likes of Joe Montana, Johnny Unitas and Brady.
