ESPN QB Confidence Index

ESPN's Dan Graziano released his updated rankings of how confident teams across the league are in their current situation at quarterback. The list isn't a ranking of the best quarterbacks, but team's situations as a whole, meaning factors such as their backup situation, injury history and long-term plan at the position are factored in.

The Seahawks, led by Russell Wilson and followed up by Austin Davis and rookie Alex McGough, came in at No. 5 on Graziano's list. He believes the Seahawks' confidence in Wilson as a starter vaults the team that high. Below is a look at the overall top-5 teams on the confidence index that you can read in full here.

1. Philadelphia Eagles (Carson Wentz, Nick Foles, Nate Sudfeld, Joe Callahan)

2. Green Bay Packers (Aaron Rodgers, DeShone Kizer, Brett Hundley, Tim Boyle)

3. New England Patriots (Tom Brady, Brian Hoyer, Danny Etling)

4. New Orleans Saints (Drew Brees, Tom Savage, Taysom Hill, J.T. Barrett)

5. Seattle Seahawks (Russell Wilson, Austin Davis, Alex McGough)
