Last year, ESPN’s Ron Jaworski ranked Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan as the 11th-best quarterback in the league.

This year, Ryan has jumped all the way up to 5th. Notably, he’s ahead of Drew Brees (who is ranked as the 6th-best quarterback).

That’s a pretty big leap for Ryan and huge praise from Jaws.

Jaws notes how Ryan has gotten better each season. He also comments on Ryan’s knack for performing in pressure situations, as evident by the quarterback’s 23 game-winning drives and 16 fourth quarter comebacks.

With the addition of Steven Jackson, expect Ryan to be even better than he was last season.
