1. Jalen Hurts, Philadelphia Eagles

It was impressive what Hurts did last year with the Eagles. He threw for 3,701 yards, 22 touchdowns, and six interceptions while also running for 760 yards and 13 touchdowns.

Protected by a solid offensive line and stud receivers in the passing game with A.J. Brown and Devonta Smith, Hurts made it look easy in 2022. He led the Eagles to a 14-1 record in his starts last season and all the way to the Super Bowl before losing to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Hurts earned his first Pro Bowl selection and finished second in the MVP voting behind Patrick Mahomes. He was also selected to the All-Pro second team in just his third year in the NFL.

There were reports that Hurts had to prove it in 2022 if Philadelphia wanted to stick with him long-term. After his performance throughout the season, it was pretty obvious that he would become the team's franchise quarterback.

Philadelphia selected Hurts in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft, and the mobile quarterback eventually ran Wentz out of town. The 24-year-old superstar is entering his fourth NFL season in 2023, and there's certainly more room for him to develop.
