In the upcoming 2012 NFL draft, the top two quarterbacks are as clear cut as they possibly could be, those two obviously being Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin. However, aside from the two standout guys, there are several other quarterbacks meriting serious attention.
It is worth noting, that out of the current top quarterbacks in the NFL, very few were the first quarterback selected in their draft class. Those being Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, Ben Roethlisberger, and recently Andy Dalton and even TJ Yates, who led his team to a playoff victory. So, clearly, there is significant talent beyond the top one or two quarterbacks.
So, here are the top five quarterbacks eligible for the 2012 NFL draft not named Andrew Luck or Robert Griffin III.
