Brian Hoyer cracks Top 32 QBs

Norm Hall

After starting the season finale, Arizona's Brian Hoyer was rated as one of the top 32 quarterbacks in the NFL by an ESPN analyst.

Brian Hoyer made his debut as Arizona's starting quarterback in Week 17 and while his numbers may not have been spectacular, Hoyer's performance was good enough to be ranked among the top 32 quarterbacks in the NFL.

In his end-of-the-season quarterback rankings, ESPN NFL analyst Ron Jaworski ranked Hoyer as the No. 32 quarterback in the league. Hoyer cracked the rankings for the first time with Jaworski praising his performance on and off the field.

Hoyer completed 19 of 34 passes for 225 yards and a touchdown in his lone start of the season, but that didn't dissuade Jaworski from praising the 27-year-old QB. Jaworski said Hoyer throws well enough and his team-oriented nature and gym rat mentality make him at least a very capable backup.

While there is plenty of uncertainty around the Cardinals right now, Jaworski saw enough to say he thinks the Cardinals might have something in Hoyer. The Cardinals claimed Hoyer off waivers late in the season and he is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
