Top Ten Scrambling QBs In History

Them highlight, Run'N'Gun, Feet Flight, QBs defenses hate!

1 Michael Vick Michael Dwayne Vick (born June 26, 1980) is a former American football quarterback who played 13 seasons in the National Football League, primarily with the Atlanta Falcons and the Philadelphia Eagles. He played college football at Virginia Tech and was selected by the Falcons as the first overall pick ...read more.

If he didn't have to go to jail he could have been able to develop his pocket passing, but lets be honest he did some things with his feet that would last on SC for weeks. - LetsBeReal

He shouldn’t have gone to jail

For sure the best scrambling QB the game has ever seen - CarsonFacePalmer

2 Randall Cunningham Randall W. Cunningham is a former American football quarterback in the National Football League and current football coach and pastor.

He was better at it in his prime than anybody I've ever seen. There were just two problems:

1) His prime was short due to injury because of inability to protect himself.

2) Either he, or the league at that time (or a combination of both) didn't focus on running QB's AT ALL - like they do today, and so he spent most of his running on just scrambling behind the line of scrimmage trying to give his WR's time to get open rather than trying to run downfield to get yardage.

If it was possible to track "total yards run" (either behind or after the line of scrimmage)...which it obviously is not, I have little to no doubt that he scrambled for more yards than MIchael Vick ran for and was quite simply better at it - in my humble opinion.

Vick might've been a better "runner" (at least he had more "impressive" runs more often as Randall just chose not to run a lot), but Randall SCRAMBLED better than anybody I've ever seen.

No. 1 hands down. Vick coils not throw the ball accurately

big strides make him untouchable

3 Steve Young Jon Steven Young is a former professional American football quarterback who played 15 seasons in the National Football League and is best known for his 13 seasons with the San Francisco 49ers.

Steve was one of the greatest QB's of all time. Period. He was MONEY down the stretch and was an underrated runner. Don't forget that "The Catch: II" would never have happened if Steve wasn't a scrambler.

Good

4 Fran Tarkenton

Not big, not extremely fast, but elusive as quicksilver, and made the Vikings a fun team to watch.

Watch old films of this guy it was crazy... He was great

Dude had eyes in the back of his horns.

He should be no. 1

5 Donavon McNabb
6 Steve McNair

McNair was Cam Newton before Cam Newton was old enough to understand play action. He wasn't as fast as, say, Cunningham or Vick, but he was a big ol' drink o' water and got within one lousy yard of almost singlehandedly dragging what was pretty much an expansion team to a championship. Add on the fact that he was rarely hurt too bad to play, and we have a top 10 scrambler.

7 Kordell Steward

Started out in Pitt as a converted to be a hell of a QB. Did big things until getting gypped and benched for a bum like Tommy Maddox. - LetsBeReal

8 Cam Newton Cameron Jerrell Newton is an American football quarterback for the Carolina Panthers of the National Football League.

He's fast enough to beat linebackers, big enough to get through them, and strong and smart enough not to get hurt.

can get past have the defense and juke around

To early in his career to judge

Cam Newton revolutionized the game, great runner and thrower with unrivaled arm strength and throw power. No other running QB has had the power run capability of 6'5" 245 Cam Newton

9 Russell Wilson Russell Carrington Wilson is an American football quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks of the National Football League.

He is a good scrambler

He should be higher than Cam and Colin.

great instinct of when to run and when to not, incredible

He is WAY better than Cam

10 Lamar Jackson

best moves from a QB and blazing speed

He should be second

He is a beast
