Matt-Ryan-2013-NFL-Quarterback-RankingsESPN’s Ron Jaworski has been doing 2013 NFL Quarterback Rankings called the “Jaws’ QB Countdown”, ranking each starting quarterback in the NFL.

Jaws clearly knows a lot about quarterbacks, but I’m not sure I agree with most of his rankings. With that, I took it upon myself to make my own QB rankings. These rankings are based off a combination of things, such as arm capability, winning, leadership and the eye test.

Without a further ado, here’s the fourth part to my 2013 NFL Quarterback Rankings (here’s part 1part 2 and part 3 if you missed it):

10. Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks Wilson had the highest difference between touchdowns and interceptions a rookie QB has ever had (26 TDs, 10 INTS) last year. There isn't anything Wilson can't do on the field, and he has already proven himself as a leader. In a year or two, don't be surprised to see Wilson in the top three of every QB rankings list out there.

9. Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh Steelers Roethlisberger quietly but up very good numbers last season, throwing 26 touchdowns and only eight interceptions. Big Ben is the ultimate warrior, but that is also his downfall. He has struggled to stay healthy throughout his career, starting all 16 games of the season just once in his 10-year career. However, if the Steelers offensive line gives Roethlisberger some time in the pocket, he'll make the other team pay.

8. Andrew Luck, Indianapolis Colts Luck was beyond impressive last year. He led the Colts into the playoffs when the team had little to no expectations coming into the season. As a rookie, Luck did a fantastic job reading defenses, which is the one skill that usually takes a few years to master. The sky is the limit for Luck, and the future looks bright in Indy.

7. Matt Ryan, Atlanta Falcons Ryan puts up great numbers every year, but only has one playoff win to his name in five seasons. When you have a receiving core as stacked as the Falcons' is, it is hard to keep everyone happy, but Ryan has figured out a way to do it. Matty Ice has the talent and arm to be a top two or three QB in the league. All he has to do to put himself in that category is to win in the postseason.

6. Eli Manning, New York Giants Manning isn't the flashiest QB in the world. He doesn't throw a perfect spiral every time. He throws some bad interceptions from time to time. But he plays his best in the biggest moments and wins football games, and sometimes, that's what matters most. When the game is on the line, there aren't many quarterbacks better than Eli Manning.
