With reports surfacing a few weeks ago that the Colts will select Andrew Luck with the No. 1 overall selection in the 2012 NFL Draft, it seems almost pointless to bring up rankings which don't place Luck as the No. 1 prospect and No. 1 quarterback.
In fact, it's a huge battle within my mind as to whether Luck or Robert Griffin III is the best quarterback in this year's class.
Neither USC's Matt Barkley or Oklahoma's Landry Jones will be in play in these rankings due to their announcements to return for their senior seasons. These announcements weaken the quarterback class as a whole and adds some new players to the top-10.
Most believed this to be a predominantly top-heavy quarterback class, but the depth is there without a doubt. Interestingly enough, it could also cause players who may have been sixth or seventh-round selections to now be picked before the fifth.
Time will tell for sure, but these rankings, as always are going to be based on what I believe should happen, and not what is necessarily most likely to happen.
The bowl games and college all-star games do play an significant role in the rankings A player's ability to excel in trying circumstances should be weighed in an overall evaluation. So here it goes.
