NFL Draft 2014: Biggest Negative Surrounding Each of the Top QB Prospects
USA TODAY Sports

The quarterback position is always the most scrutinized in a given draft, but two extra weeks added before the 2014 NFL draft has ensured that any flaw—tangible or not, football related or not—has been uncovered and shared on all of the top quarterback prospects. 

For example, take one NFL scout's ridiculous knock on Fresno State quarterback Derek Carr, per Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

"You wonder if he can lead just because he's a little different," the scout said. "OK in the interview but not the type of guy you'd have a beer with. Good kid but little bit of a forced leader. Can he fit in?"

This kind of off-the-rail and mostly unnecessary psychoanalysis can make the draft process almost unbearable. 
However, not all criticisms are created equal; some have very real value, and most remain instrumental to when a quarterback is selected and which team will do the drafting.

In the following slides, we'll address the biggest negative each of the 2014 draft's quarterbacks brings to the table.
