NFL 2020 Season: Predicting The 15 Best Quarterbacks

NFL quarterbacks are  the most cherished players in the league, and some of the most envied people in the world. They can get any girl they want, suit up in the most powerful sports league's clothing weekly, and make millions. Their lives are excellent. But it takes a lot of skill to be truly memorable. This article will outline 15 quarterbacks who may not be so amazing currently, but will be by the year 2020.

It will be a sad time when the game's favorite quarterbacks retire, or simply when they surpass the prime of their career. It will be a sad time for fans too, like when Peyton Manning announced his retirement. People like Tom Brady will eventually slow down, and though Tom is an absolute beast on the field, one day, he will just be ordinary. And before long, Tom Brady will be a retired quarterback.

Still, new quarterbacks will lead their teams to success. Young draft picks will turn into superstars one day. Players like Marcus Mariota or Blake Bortles will be leaders on and off the field. Although they already are leaders, they will assume entirely new leadership roles, ones held by greats like Brady. For example, Brady holds the NFL on his shoulders. If he trashes the league, fans may do so also. He is a very persuasive head ambassador for the league, and young players will always look up to him. One day, these ambassador positions will transition into new hands. This means more responsibility at all times, and players must demonstrate competent personality traits at all times. If a role model quarterback loses his mind, so do many others, including the team.

This list is a unique one, and the players here will one day be regarded as the best in the league. This is my version of The NFL 2020: Predicting The 15 Best Future Quarterbacks. Hopefully, I'll look back one day, and these predictions will be correct.

15 Ben Roethlisberger

Age in 2020: 38

Big Ben will be winding down by this time. (Not the clock). He will be the same age as Brady is right now, but I believe he will not be the same as he is now. I think he will still be a good player, and I assume he will not leave Pittsburgh. I think Ben will retire after this 2020 season, because he has a whole life waiting for him outside of football. With the beatings Roethlisberger takes every Sunday, he won't be able to prolong his career like other pocket passers.

14 Matt Ryan

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Age in 2020: 35

13 Jared Goff

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Age in 2020: 25

12 Teddy Bridgewater

Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY Sports

Age in 2020: 27

11 Marcus Mariota

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Age in 2020: 26

10 Tyrod Taylor

Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

Age in 2020: 30

9 Blake Bortles

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Age in 2020: 28

8 Paxton Lynch

Marvin Gentry-USA TODAY Sports

Age in 2020: 26

With Peyton Manning's departure from Colorado, there's a lot of uncertainty for the Broncos. Paxton Lynch will fill that void.

7 Jameis Winston

Age in 2020: 26

Winston is already on the right track in Tampa Bay. Along with Mike Evans, he has proven he is capable of being a starting quarterback. I trust that he can develop even more, becoming a regular Pro Bowl attendee. Like Mariota, Winston is already working with his second head coach.

6 Philip Rivers

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

Age in 2020: 38

Though Rivers will be fairly old in 2020, I don't think he will slow down too much. I think this (2020) could be his final season, and maybe he will go out with a bang. The Chargers don't have much of a defense, but he has never failed the city of San Diego. It will be interesting to see where the Chargers are playing by 2020 though.

5 Carson Wentz

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Age in 2020: 27

4 Derek Carr

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

Age in 2020: 29

3 Russell Wilson

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Age in 2020: 31

2 Cam Newton

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Age in 2020: 31

1 Aaron Rodgers

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Age in 2020: 36

Do I think this is a bold pick? Hell no.

Aaron Rodgers has been a very consistently strong quarterback ever since he filled in for Brett Favre. He has already solidified his Hall of Fame status, and will be in Canton one day. Rodgers is a practical QB, who does not fail to hit his receivers on the run. With Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, and maybe James Jones in 2020, this team could easily go all the way. They might not have all of those guys, but add a strong running back into the mix, and the Packers may be a dynasty. Rodgers is arguably the best quarterback in football right now, but his ability leads no one to believe he will spiral downwards.

Manning and Brady dominated the game well into their mid 30s and so will Rodgers.
