Summary

Rodgers has all the qualities you would want in a franchise quarterback; elite arm strength, a quick release and pin point accuracy. His intelligence is what sets him apart though. He has become a master at diagnosing pre-snap coverage, allowing him to go through his progressions and pick defenses apart. Aside from being excellent as a pocket passer, his most impressive quality is the ability to get outside the pocket, roll to either side and throw on the run. He forces the opposing team to defend the entire field. Defenses have to pick their poison because has also shown to be an effective runner throughout his career (20 career rushing touchdowns). Rodgers has finished as the #2 QB four of the last five years, with 2013 being the exception when he missed seven games. Injuries are a minor concern, as he has proven that he is willing to play through pain. The Packers resigned Randall Cobb during the off season, so Rodgers will once again have a talented wide receiver core. Throw in a top five offensive line and Rodgers remains the most stable option at quarterback. (May 15)
