Top 10 mobile QBs

Top 10 mobile quarterbacks in NFL history

NFL Network

McNabb went from being booed on draft day to using his strong arm and nimble feet to lead the Eagles to their first Super Bowl in 24 years.

Often criticized for being small in stature, the crafty and motivated Flutie came up big when his team needed a play.

Further proof that milk does a body good, Zorn drank his and then helped lead the expansion Seahawks to respectability with his mobility.

Not at all known for being fleet of foot and known more for what he could do with his arm, Marino makes this NFL's Top 10 list for another reason.

After winning the Heisman Trophy while at the Naval Academy, Staubach went on to a decorated career with the Cowboys.

Before Michael Vick broke the record in 2006, Douglass held the standard rushing total for running quarterbacks.

Vick's when-in-doubt-run philosophy netted a 1,000-yard rushing season in 2006, becoming the first quarterback to do so.

During his heyday with the Eagles, Cunningham was as much of a threat to pass as he was to improvise on the run.

Young ran out of the shadow of 49ers legend Joe Montana and created his own legacy as one of the game's most dangerous quarterbacks.

Aside from being one of the NFL's best passers, Tarkenton attracted widespread attention as an exciting scrambler.

Sorry, but Vick was the best of them all. Hands down. No contest.

I would think when ranking the top 10 mobile QBs, you would have to factor in their passing game also. I would put Vick in the same catagory as Bobby Douglass- good mobility, poor passing game.

Roger Staubach was the man!!!!

Fran did most of his running from side to side or going further back....scrambling until a WR would become open....His mobile was completely different than Staubachs.....Steve Young was more of a Roger Staubach type QB....Mike Vick was totally different than the rest, great running QB but not really a scrambler and definately not a great passing QB.  Cunningham unfortunately was hit with injuries.  Dan Marino?????  What the heck!!!  Quick release and great arm...legs made of cement
