Top 5 quarterbacks who would be the new Tom Brady

Tom Brady's retirement after more than two decades dominating the NFL leaves a void in the league's balance of power, since for many years he was the maximum reference and rival of any championship contender.


Thus, we present five quarterbacks who have the conditions and potential to be the ones to take over as the main reference of the position in the league, after the departure of the best of all time.

#5. Trevor Lawrence

After a rookie season in which he suffered the difficulties of being on a team without major offensive support, Lawrence made a remarkable leap in quality and has just led the Jacksonville Jaguars to their first playoff victory in six years.


The first pick of the 2021 NFL Draft is a prolific passer and proved it by surpassing 4,000 yards and dramatically improving his interception rate, something that plagued him in his first year in the league. At 23 years old, he still has a lot to prove, but if there's one thing Lawrence has, it's talent.

#4. Justin Herbert

If there is a player to take into consideration, it is Herbert, who has already had three solid seasons with the Los Angeles Chargers and at 24 years of age has proven to be one of the best passers in the league in that period. This has been evident in the string of records he has set early in both yards through the air and touchdowns.


While he will need more support within his team, he has the potential to be an NFL MVP in the near future and similar to what Tom Brady has done, because of his style of play he has everything he needs to have an extensive career if he so desires.

#3. Josh Allen

After his arrival in 2018, it took Allen a couple of seasons to become the leader the Buffalo Bills needed, but since then his performance has kept him within the MVP candidates.


He has not been able to stand out in the postseason as he would like so far, but at only 26 years old he will surely have the opportunity in the future, even more so with a very interesting project like the Bills with which they could dominate the AFC East for several campaigns.

#2. Joe Burrow

After a remarkable college career with LSU, Joe Burrow took it upon himself to show why he is one of today's most promising quarterbacks, leading the Cincinnati Bengals in just his first full season to the Super Bowl.


His leadership and talent are undeniable, making his team a championship contender once again in 2022-23, being eliminated in the AFC Conference Finals. He is only 26 years old, so if he stays healthy, he could build a career full of awards.

#1. Patrick Mahomes

At only 27 years old, Patrick Mahomes has already secured his third Super Bowl appearance and could be crowned for the second time in his career, something that undoubtedly profiles him to be Tom Brady's successor as the most feared quarterback in the NFL.


The leader of the Kansas City Chiefs seems to be on his way to his second MVP, something worthy of note after only five seasons in the league. His future is assured with his historic 10-year, $450 million contract, which is why he must be guaranteed a team that will support him so that he can continue to be successful.
