  • ESPN’s Dan Orlovsky put out a list of his top-five NFL QBs under 25 on Tuesday.
  • Orlovsky put Cincinnati Bengals QB Joe Burrow atop the list above Lamar Jackson and three others.
  • Football fans had plenty to say about the rankings, with many disagreeing.

ESPN NFL analyst Dan Orlovsky decided he wanted to set his Twitter mentions on fire on Tuesday morning.

Orlovsky put out a list of the top NFL quarterbacks under the the age of 25.

The list was fairly straightforward. Cincinnati Bengals signal caller Joe Burrow sat at the top after leading his team to the Super Bowl last season. Former league MVP Lamar Jackson of the Baltimore Ravens check in at No. 2, ahead of Justin Herbert, Trevor Lawrence and Mac Jones.

Arizona Cardinals QB Kyler Murray was noticeably absent, as was Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. Needless to say fans weren’t a huge fan of their exclusion.


Those weren’t the only complaints. Fans also felt Herbert should have been higher on the list, with many arguing he should be in the top spot.


Philadelphia Eagles and Chicago Bears quarterbacks Jalen Hurts and Justin Fields were other names that fans felt should have been included.

Fans especially criticized the inclusion of Jones. The second-year Patriots starter finished as the runner-up to Bengals wideout Ja’Marr Chase for the league’s Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2021, but many felt he was protected by New England’s offense.

Orlovsky’s rankings are certainly debatable, but that’s becoming the norm for he and his ESPN NFL Live colleagues.
