Collin Klein was one of the most electric players in college football over the past two seasons, rushing for 50 touchdowns in that time span while passing for only 29. Those stats tell you most of what the knock on Klein is; that he is this year's Tim Tebow, a running quarterback with subpar throwing mechanics who will struggle to remain a quarterback as a pro.

While Klein did show improvement with his throwing motion in his senior year, scouts remain unsure of what his best fit will be in the pros. What's undeniable is that Klein is a beast with the ball in his hands. At 6'5", he also has better size than Tebow, and many scouts think he could make a leap to tight end.

Klein seems intent on trying to make it as a quarterback, but for him to stick in the league he might have to get by on special teams like he did to start his career at Kansas State.
