Eagles’ QB Jalen Hurts lands in the top 5 of a ranking of NFL’s top 100 most valuable players

It is award season in the NFL and as eight teams work to secure a shot at the Super Bowl, the MVP talk is starting to wind down.

NFL Honors is less than four weeks away and the 2022 NFL MVP will be crowned that evening, along with the Offensive Player of the Year, Defensive Player of the Year, Rookie of the Year, and a handful of other awards.

ESPN recently ranked the top 100 most valuable players in the NFL, and Eagles All-Pro quarterback Jalen Hurts landed at No. 3 overall behind Patrick Mahomes (1) and Josh Allen (2).

Hurts was in a good situation and maximized the opportunity. He dominated the most on the ground, generating almost double the team EPA on designed runs of any other quarterback. But he was an efficient passer, too. Hurts ranked eighth in EPA per dropback (ninth if we remove scrambles) and were accurate. His plus-3% completion percentage over expectation ranked second, per NFL Next Gen Stats. And Hurts was superb at turnover avoidance, giving the ball away on 1.2% of his action plays.

The criteria and process for the rankings centered around a measure of who generated more value in 2022, along with PFF rankings, NFL metrics, and All-Pro honors.

Joe Burrow (4) and Justin Jefferson (5) rounded out the top five, while Tyreek Hill (6), Justin Herbert (7), Trevor Lawrence (8), Myles Garrett (9), and Nick Bosa (10) finished in the top ten.

A.J. Brown was the next highest-ranked Eagle on the list at 13th, and Philadelphia had 11 of the top 100 most valuable players of 2022.
