If starting a franchise today and basing decision on age and upside alone, not thinking about past performance. Strictly who would I want for the next 5-7 years as franchise QB and considering QB position is evolving into a more athletic type

Luck
Kaepernick
RG3
Rodgers
Brady
Brees
Wilson
Eli (has two rings and came up bigger than Ben in SB)
Newton
Peyton (only because he is elite now but unlikely to play 5 years otherwise higher)
Ben
Flacco
Ryan
Romo
Cutler

If I had to have one for just next season:

Rodgers
Brady
Brees
Kaepernick
Peyton
Eli
Ryan
RG3
Ben

Kaepernick is a stud plain and simple. If you can't see his cannon arm, running ability, poise at such a young age and with lack of experience then you are blind. I would say that he more so than RG3 is the face of the new NFL. I say this because while skill wise they are about tied, Kaepernick is bigger and won't get injured. Kaepernick has better chance of making Pro Bowl next year than Ben imho. Doesn't mean Ben is horrible, just not elite and body is breaking down. He had his time. With hard work and more film study, maybe better blocking and a running game, all possibilities this offseason, he can vault himself back into the top 8 discussion.
