QB Rankings

By: Antoine Tshiyombo

1. Spencer Rattler  Oklahoma* Strengths: Arm Strength Can make Make every throw and than some. With extreme velocity and accuracy. Can make off platform Throws with ease. Reason of concern: Some have questioned his maturity both as a young man who can lead a squad and as as Football player who has not developed management skills.

2. Sam Howell  North Carolina* Strengths: Pinpoint accuracy. Great touch on the deeper ball. Excels at making throws on the run. Mechanically sound won’t have to adjust much in his throwing motion just get better with feet. Reason for Concern: Trying to play hero ball. To many reckless plays on tape didn’t improve this from freshman to sophomore year.

3. Emory Jones  Florida* Strengths: Physically as gifted as you can be Super strong Arm Will instantly be one of the top 5 best runners at the position. Well put together. Reason for Concern: He hasn’t been the starter played in packages and mop up duty. Hasn’t put much on tape just a giants projection who honestly could make me look foolish ranking him this high.

4. J.T Daniels  Georgia* Strengths: Processing and Quick timing . Improved every year. Throws a great deep ball not afraid to Gun it. Reason for concern: Not a threat to beat you with his legs. Poor pocket Awareness. Durability needs too prove he can hold up for a full season.

5. Carson Strong Nevada* Strength: Big tall strong arm QB who was  42% when throwing 20+ yards one of the elite numbers in that category. Reason for concern: Slow feet. Has a tendency to panic under pressure like many young pocket passers to many negative plays.

6. Grant Wells Marshall** Strengths: Was accurate down the field. Showed a tone of promise as a redshirt freshmen and is in a high trajectory so far in a young career. Reason for concern: Reckless with the football Inconsistent week to week.

7. Malik Willis  Liberty  Strengths: Probably the biggest Arm in the class with Outstanding running ability. 54 1st downsand 14 TDS on the ground last year. Reason For concerns: In accurate at time has poor footwork both in and out of the pocket. So many bone head plays and plays that could of resulted in a tone of negative plays.

8. Malik Cunningham Louisville Strengths: Amazing runner with the ball. Has a tight spiral. Allows you to be creative in the running game. Was asked to throw the ball 20+ yards more than most QBs and was above average. Weakness: Has a slow release then ideal. Accuracy between the numbers drops. Poor footwork and was awful under pressure. 12 interceptions and probably could have had like 16.

9. Cole Kelley Southeastern Louisiana: Strength: Cole is huge at 6”7 260 and can just throw defenders off of him. Who already has 613 drop back passes. Was big time while under pressure. Reason for concern: is Already 23 years old. Most of his production comes from Screens and RPO. Failed to break out until last year and entering his 6th in college. Might be a man playing with boys.

10. Desmond Ridder Cincinnati strengths: Was effect in the short to medium passing game. A real dual threat 12  TDS 37 1st downs. Reason for concern: Slight of frame.Never dominated at any point of his career. folded under pressure when blitzed consistently as a passer. Holds the ball to long.

11. Kedon Slovis Southern California* Strengths: Pin point accurate fundamentals is big for him and doesn’t break them to often. Good zip on the ball. Throws with great anticipation and is always every kill. Reason for concern: Small. Lacks mobility and will always need at least a decent line in front of him. Played in a simplified offense that inflated some of his stats. Slightly below average arm strength.

12. Matt Corral Mississippi* Strengths: As good as it got when in a clean pocket last year. Has a fearless nature to his game. Has  displayed the deep ball accuracy you hope to see on throws 20+ yards completed 55.2% of them one of the best in the class. Reason for concern: Is slow to make reads everything was half field reads. Even with a more simplified offense he still made poor decisions and would put the ball in harms way. Isn’t very big and won’t be beating many defenders in a foot race.

13. Bo Nix Auburn* Strengths: Break out candidate for me. Mobile has enough arm to make nearly every big time throw. Raw passing stats don’t tell how accurate he was 19 dropped passes last year. Started since day 1 and durable. With a quick side arm delivery. Has changed his footwork this summer looked like a new QB in spring. Reason for concern. Has been highly inaccurate, highly reckless and has shown little to no poise. Must show more consistency Play to play I love him on one play I hate him the next on tape. Poor game management skills.

14. Brock Purdy Iowa State Strength: Smart, very experiencedand Above average athlete for a QB. Reason for concern: physically limited. Doesn’t have any elite traits. Struggled to throw the ball outside the numbers with zip. Missed some throws you need pro QBs to make. Has a lot of back up QB quality but doesn’t fit the profile for long term starter.

15. Kenny Pickett Pittsburgh Strengths: has over 1400 drop backs in four years. Has got better each year. Has made the most he can with his own limited talent and his supporting cast. Throw the ball down the field with accuracy (20 plus yards). Reason for Concern: Has a lot of growing to do makes poor decisions consistently under pressure. Not overwhelmingly physical tools. Isn’t accurate in the intermediate level of the field(10-15 yards).
