The quarterback class for next April’s draft is full of questions.  There is certainly no one in the class of Andrew Luck or Robert Griffin III.  The pre-season favorite, Matt Barkley, failed to meet expectations.  So did several other seniors (Tyler Wilson, Landry Jones) as did the top juniors (Logan Thomas).  There’s potential in this group yet little in the way of guarantees.
