NFL.com Draft Experts Rank Justin Herbert #9 QB Nationally

September 13, 2017
3,274

NFL.com has updated its QB Power Rankings and for the first time Oregon's Justin Herbert makes the list at #9.

In the prior 2 QB power rankings, Justin Herbert was not included.

Overall Pac-12 QBs make up half of the Top 10.  Other Pac-12 signal callers included in the list are UCLA's Josh Rosen at #1, USC's Sam Darnold at #3, UW's Jake Browning at #7 and Washington State's Luke Falk at #8.

Interestingly, Wyoming's Josh Allen, who Oregon will face on Saturday, checked in at #6 on the list.

NFL.com had this to say about Justin Herbert:

RANK 9

Justin Herbert - Oregon

Points: 11 

Week 2 stats: 25 of 33 for 365 yards, 3 TDs, 1 INT; 5 carries for 31 yards in 42-35 win over Nebraska. 

Week 3 opponent: Wyoming 

Herbert has great size and can make big-boy throws. He won't be eligible for the draft until 2019, at the earliest, but he's already gaining the attention of scouts, which adds an extra layer of intrigue to Saturday's Oregon-Wyoming game. They won't be on the field at the same time, of course, but Herbert will get a chance to build on his impressive outing against the Huskers with a showcase vs. Josh Allen, who's 3 spots ahead of him in our Power Rankings.
