For this scouting breakdown I studied, surveyed and analyzed the top nine quarterbacks in the 2013 draft class.
The purpose was to break down the strengths and weaknesses of each QB in direct comparison to one another.
Each of the nine QBs was graded on key components of the quarterback position using thorough tape study, advanced statistics and collecting input from people I trust. By pooling together these resources I was able to better determine both the best and worst QBs at each of the 11 critical categories.
The categories are as follows: size, scrambling ability, pocket presence, ability under pressure, toughness, arm strength, intermediate and deep accuracy, improvisational skills, decision-making and best footwork.
The nine quarterbacks who were considered in this breakdown are: Geno Smith, Tyler Wilson, Zac Dysert, Matt Barkley, Ryan Nassib, E.J. Manuel, Mike Glennon, Tyler Bray and Landry Jones.
So without wasting any more of your precious attention-span, let's get straight to it.
