For fans of quarterbacks, the NFC East is your place.

Top to bottom, the division has been home to some of the best at the position over the years, including Super Bowl MVPs, All-Pros and perennial Pro Bowl selections.

But who is currently the best? says it's Eli Manning, who was one of six Giants recently named to the site's preseason All-NFC East Team.

"I know Cowboys fans will be displeased here," Dave Dameshek wrote. "But as [NFL Media analyst] Daniel Jeremiah said to me this week, 'Romo had one of his best seasons ever last year. Why? Because they took the ball out of his hands. Eli had one of his best seasons, too, specifically because they put more on him.'"

Meanwhile, wide receiver and reigning AP Offensive Rookie of the Year Odell Beckham Jr. was also named a divisional all-star along with defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, kicker Josh Brown, and rookie safety Landon Collins, whom the Giants traded up to draft with the first pick of the second round.

"Curmudgeons won't like a rookie in this spot," Dameshek added. "But his upside outstrips the reality of what's available among the NFC East vets at the position."
