The 2014 quarterback class will have, at least, three instant NFL starters and will shake up the world of fantasy football. The 2014 group is much more exciting than the 2013 class of signal-callers (that's not saying much) but will not meet the standards set in 2012, with a club that featured Andrew Luck, Russell Wilson, Ryan Tannehill, Nick Foles and Robert Griffin III.
We will only look at quarterbacks with a significant chance to make an impact in 2014.
LSU's Zach Mettenberger tore his left knee's ACL on November 29 of last year and had surgery a few weeks later. It is unlikely that an NFL team will rush Mettenberger into action, no matter how well his recovery has progressed.
Ironically, Georgia's Aaron Murray also tore his left knee's ACL in November 2013 and had surgery on November 26. Murray will be allowed to learn a playbook while his knee heals and will not see action in 2014.
Alabama's AJ McCarron is an underwhelming athlete with subpar arm strength by NFL standards. Dane Brugler of CBS Sports claims McCarron "is not quite starting material."
Now, let's look at the five quarterbacks that will rack up fantasy points in 2014 as NFL rookies.
