1. Andrew Luck-
Comparison Matt Ryan
He does mostly everything Matt Ryan does. He is not the leader Ryan is nor does he have the intangibles or clutch factor Ryan has. Here is where he passes Ryan. Luck has no serious weaknesses. His arm strength is an issue which is on par with Ryan as well as his velocity but his deep ball accuracy is superior to Ryan even at this stage of his career. He has pinpoint accuracy on all his throws. Mobility. Luck has enough mobility to be rated as a balanced QB. He is not Rodgers but he is as mobile as David Garrard. Luck has elite pocket presence and pocket awareness as a college QB. With that said, he still needs a lot in my opinion. If he is not given the weapons, I can see him becoming a game manager like Ryan. If given the weapons, he could be a superstar. In the right system like the NE spread, I think he could be better than Brady.
2. Robert Griffin-
Comparison Donovan McNabb
While he is a superior passer to McNabb at the same stage, McNabb could break tackles and he was tougher to bring down. Griffin is sneaky fast and he can hold his speed like Devin Hester. You are never going to run down Griffin. He has very good arm strength. He is extremely smart. He is just as good a runner as Donovan out of college. He has horrible footwork and needs to work on it. That could take him at least two years to improve on. He has elite potential which is what I consider McNabb for a 5-7 year period.
3. Matt Barkley
NFL Comparison: Tony Romo
I love this guys talent. Is athletic. Can throw as well in the pocket as out of it. Romo has that rare ability. He is a much better decision maker than Romo at this stage and will be superior in the future. Has elite potential. Can make all the throws. Needs talent around him unless Griffin or a vet savvy Luck. My favorite QB in this class.
4. Kellen Moore
NFL Comparison: Drew Brees
I love this guy. Just like Brees, I feel like I am arguing for this guy too much. I felt Brees could become elite. People said he is the next bust. At first that looked true but today he is an all timer. I feel the same way about Moore. In fact, their scouting reports look identical. I feel that Moore has more varieties of passes in his repertoire than Brees but Brees had a tad more velocity out of college.
5. Tajh Boyd
NFL Comparison: Aaron Rodgers
They look like mirror images of each other as Juniors (Boyd is RS SOPH). Both are unpolished as h*ll and talented as s**t. Both have ungodly releases. Both have great intuition skills and understand the game with ease. Boyd is three years away from making an impact like Rodgers was but the talent and potential is there. Because of his potential, could sneak into the first round. Since Clemson is loaded, he might return next season. He is 6'1 230 which is one inch shorter and 10 pounds more than Aaron Rodgers.
6. Ryan Tannehill
NFL Comparison: Big Ben (poor man's)
Tannehill has talent but not enough in my opinion. This article is dead on how I feel about Tannehill right now. He is talented and at times shows a lot of potential.
7. Dominique Davis
NFL Comparison: Warren Moon
Great passer. I always rated his potential highly even during his RS FR season at BC. I felt he just wasn't ready at that time and played too soon. He has excellent tools and he can throw it anywhere. If you watched ECU this season, he put the team on his back as far as he could from a passing standpoint. Very good accuracy. Decent pocket awareness. Decent athlete like Moon was. He does so much like Moon. He is extremely underrated at this point like Colin K was. I personally think he could be rated higher.
8. Kirk Cousins-
NFL Comparison: Matt Cassell
I love this kid a ton. I think the world of him. But the guys ahead of him can be more than game managers even if they are raw so I have changed my ranking for that. Cousins can be a good game manager but he is too limited to be more than that. Decent floor, low ceiling.
9. Landry Jones-
NFL Comparison: Jake Plummer
He is just too raw at this stage but I see a lot of Plummer in his game. They have the same arm and are mobile too. He is just unpolished and is really not a serious name for the draft in my opinion.
10. Nick Foles-
NFL Comparison- TBA
I will do a report on him later. I can only go by last season. The only Zona game I watched was Zona/UCLA. UCLA is a scrub team. I will get more tape in the future.
I will do a lot more reports as the season goes on. I do not do grades till the SR Bowl. My first list for 2012.
