1. Geno Smith, West Virginia Mountaineers—4.59 seconds
Geno Smith solidified his status as the top quarterback prospect in this draft class with a strong combine performance that was highlighted by a positional-best 4.59 40-yard dash.
Oddly, Smith has been listed as a player going anywhere from first to outside of the top 10.
2. EJ Manuel, Florida State Seminoles—4.65 seconds
EJ Manuel was outstanding at the combine with his 4.65 40-yard dash and a superb all-around outing. As a result, Manuel proved to many that he could run the read option.
Daniel Jeremiah of NFL.com reports that scouts have upgraded him from a third-round to second-round prospect.
3. Matt Scott, Arizona Wildcats—4.69 seconds
Matt Scott of the Arizona Wildcats ran a 4.69 40-yard dash at the 2013 combine. Despite playing under the run-happy Rich Rodriguez, Scott averaged 41.6 pass attempts per game.
Scott is an under-the-radar prospect, but he could be this year's Russell Wilson if slated on the right team.
4. MarQueis Gray, Minnesota Golden Gophers—4.73 seconds
It's unclear whether or not MarQueis Gray will play quarterback or wide receiver. At 6'4" and 245 pounds, he's an impressive specimen at either spot.
Gray worked the combine at QB, however, and ran an impressive 4.73 40-yard dash.
T-5. Colby Cameron, Louisiana Tech Bulldogs—4.78 seconds
Colby Cameron threw for 4,147 yards on a completion percentage of 68.8. He also threw 31 touchdowns to just five interceptions.
At the combine, Cameron turned heads by proving he has the wheels to go with his passing tools, running a 4.78 40-yard dash.
T-5. Collin Klein, Kansas State Wildcats—4.78 seconds
Collin Klein is suffering from the Tim Tebow effect, as few believe he will play quarterback at the next level. With that being said, Klein put his prowess as a runner on full display.
A 4.78 40-yard dash tied him with Cameron for fifth among quarterbacks.
