10. Russell Wilson, Seahawks
- 2014: 95 QB Rating, 3,475 Yards, 20 TD, 7 INT
We start the list with a youngster who’s already won a Super Bowl.
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson isn’t the leader of a high-flying aerial attack like others in this ridiculously pass-happy league. Instead, he produces in a different way.
His leadership ability and calming presence under pressure is an uncanny attribute very few guys can call their own.
Take last February for example. Wilson – needing to drive the length of the field for his second straight Super Bowl title – did just that. He did it his way. The way that provides exciting scrambles drills and legs churning in the pocket.
Of course we all know how the game ended up on the goalline, but Wilson gets it done under pressure more often than not. He does it so well that he edged out guys like Joe Flacco and Matt Ryan on this list.
