While players, coaches and fans patiently wait for the new college-football season to arrive, one of the discussions that keeps us occupied revolves around the quarterback position. While there are a few teams that are fortunate enough to return last year’s starter, many of the top teams in college football are left scrambling to find a reliable replacement single-caller.
And with the season just a week away, camp is quickly coming to an end, and coaching staffs are slowly beginning to release the names of the players that will lead their teams in 2012.
Some of these squads will end up using many quarterbacks throughout the year, while a few will hit the jackpot and end up with someone who can take their program to new heights.
Regardless, here are the grades of all the new quarterbacks that will take over college football this year.
Note: Grades are a combination of whom they beat out for the starting job, whom they are replacing, the strengths and weaknesses of that player and everything the quarterback must overcome, such as lack of playmakers, tough schedule, etc.
