Top 5 Pre-Combine QB's
This is a very early look at the top 5 QBs in this year’s draft. Based on season play, the players are looking like this.
Geno Smith from West Virginia Sr, 6-3, 220lbs, expected to go in the 1st Round. Did wonderful things in WV, but that was in WV playing less than spectacular opponents all season long.
Matt Barkley from Southern California Sr, 6-2, 230lbs, also expected to go in the 1st Round. The injuries have been a concern, then there’s the stigma of USC quarter backs as well… He’d be joining the ranks of players like Palmer, Sanchez, Leinart, and Rob Johnson… Not very promising stock to be coming from, Matt is going to do his best to change all of that, but the only question is, who’d going to blink and pick him up in the first round. He may find a home with a team with a later pick, looking to add depth for an ageing vet… Think Broncos.
Mike Glennon from North Carolina State rSr, 6-7, 220lbs projected to go in the late 1st, early 2nd. The “small” school stigma may hurt, him, as will his enormous frame. He’ll have to show that he can move it well enough, or his draft stock will fall.
Tyler Wilson from Arkansas rSr, 6-2, 218lbs projected to go in the mid 2nd round. He did some great things in Arkansas, a lot of people have compared him with Phillip Rivers with a quicker release. The question is, are they talking about this “new” and terrible Phillip, or the original “fantastic” and young Phillip who wowed people early on when he was traded in the Eli Manning debacle in his rookie season. Only time will tell.
Ryan Nassib from Syracuse, rSr, 6-2, 223lbs projected to go in the mid 2nd round. Many scouts have him rated as a deep sleeper in this year’s draft. He’s mobile enough and can make great throws with the big arm he has. Decision making has been an issue, but decisions can be improved. Physical ability cannot… He’s an intriguing prospect with a decent amount of upside to him and his game.
Honorable mention. EJ Manuel from Florida State, rSr, 6-4, 237lbs. He’s a gym beast and an amazing athlete. His decision making is a question however and it remains to be seen if this will hobble him in this year’s draft. Time will well, but he’s quite possible the best athlete at the position in this year’s draft. He’ll probably have a great combine and wow the scout there.
