Rankings for 63 draft eligible quarterbacks. The class is headlined by two potential franchise signal callers at the top then plenty of potential through the middle rounds. As usual its driven by underclassmen but don’t be fooled as the senior class offers legitimate starting prospects for the next level.

# Name School Year Round
1 Marcus Mariota Oregon 3So 1st
Developing signal caller with the necessary skills to become a franchise player. Athletic, nimble and strong armed.  Can make plays in or out of the pocket with his arm or legs.  Comes with tremendous upside potential.
2 Teddy Bridgewater Louisville 3Jr 1st
Strong armed, athletic passer who plays smart football.  Has the physical skills to make all the throws or pick up yardage with his legs yet at the same time possesses a good understanding of the position and game.  Shorter than most want in a quarterback and has been up and down this season yet legitimately a big time talent for the next level.
3 Johnny Manziel Texas A&M 3So 1st
Tremendous college signal caller who looks like a magician on the field.  Improvises and finds a way to create positive plays.  Reckless style of play could hurt him in the NFL.   A solid prospect that’s going to be over-drafted next May.
4 Brett Hundley UCLA 3So 1-2
Developing passer with a large amount of upside. Has the physical skills to start on the NFL and for the most part makes good decisions but really needs another year on the college level to polish his game.
5 Derek Carr Fresno State 5Sr 2-3
Ultra-productive passer with an NFL arm.  Smart, accurate and stays away from bad decisions.  Struggles under the rush which is a red-flag.  Post season (Senior Bowl and Combine) are big for Carr.
6 A.J. McCarron Alabama 5Sr 3rd
Productive quarterback that’s done nothing but win on the college level.  Smart, effectively manages the game and commands the offense.  Not a true vertical passer but could be effective in certain timing/west coast offenses.
7 Tajh Boyd Clemson 5Sr 3rd
Athletic college passer with a big arm but poor throwing fundamentals.  Easily drives deep passes or makes plays carrying the ball.  Can be all over the place with throws as receivers are constantly slowing up in routes or leaving their feet to make the catch.  Needs a lot of work from the ground up.
8 Zach Mettenberger LSU 5Sr 3rd
Big armed pocket passer who flashes ability.  Easily gets the ball through the small windows or drives deep passes.  Can make a number of NFL passers others are unable to complete.  Physically enticing yet has struggled to prove he’s anything more than a game manager to this point.
9 Stephen Morris Miami-Fl 4Sr 3-4
Up and down passer with the underlying mental and physical skills to start on the NFL level.  Must start to play at a consistently high level.
10 Aaron Murray Georgia 5Sr 3-4
Feisty, competitive signal caller who’s been very productive on college level.  Possesses the arm strength intelligence and heart to play at the next level.  Lack of height/size will ultimately pose a problem for team.
11 Braxton Miller Ohio State 3Jr 4th
Athletic signal caller slowly developing into a passer.  Can make all the throws or pick up yardage with his legs.  Comes with a large upside.  Must improve his mechanics and reads yet headed in the right direction.
12 David Fales San Jose State 5Sr 4-5
Smart quarterback that’s been productive on the field.  Nicely reads the defense, finds the open wide out and makes good decisions.  Scouts are split on his arm strength and ability to start in the NFL.
13 Jimmy Garoppolo Eastern Illinois 4Sr 4-5
Talented passer with a good head on his shoulders.  Solid arm, relatively accurate and makes good decisions.  A nice prospect yet not a difference maker in the mold of Joe Flacco.
14 Jeff Mathews Cornell 4Sr 5th
Strong armed passer with the physical skills to play in the NFL.  Struggling through a disappointing senior campaign yet has starting potential at the next level if he hits on  all cylinders.
15 Sean Mannion Oregon State 4Jr 5th
