Ranking every starting QB in the NFL based on mobility

by Dean Gomes Quarterback remains the most-important position in all of sports, but that doesn’t mean it’s not evolving. In fact, the past 10 years have seen a drastic shift in the way success is defined behind center. No longer are quarterbacks asked to simply stand in the pocket and deliver passes to receiver.
