Ron Jaworski believes the fourth best quarterback in the NFL resides in the AFC West.

In his top 30 quarterback ranking series, Jaworski presented new Denver quarterback Peyton Manning as the fourth best quarterback in the NFL.

I’m not surprised by Jaworski's ranking. Manning is an elite player. Of course, he will be the most closely watched player in the NFL this year. He missed all of last season with a neck injury and he is coming back at the age of 36. However, Manning looked strong in workouts this offseason.

I don’t think Jaworski could have ranked him much lower as Manning begins a new chapter.

Jaworski ranked San Diego’s Philip Rivers as the seventh best quarterback, Oakland’s Carson Palmer No. 21 and Kansas City’s Matt Cassel No. 22.
