College Football QBs Who Could Shock World by Starting Week 1
Steve Dykes-USA TODAY Sports

The projected starting quarterback at the start of fall camp does not always win the job by the end of fall camp.

Last year, for example, Blake Bell was favored to win the starting job at Oklahoma after serving as the short-yardage quarterback behind Landry Jones in 2011 and 2012. But a redshirt freshman named Trevor Knight swept the coaches off their feet in August and took the first snap of the season against UL-Monroe.

This year, there are numerous candidates to pull off the same sort of upset as Knight did. If the season started today, they probably wouldn't hear their numbers called, but they have the talent and the opportunity to change that in the next three weeks.

Sometimes, that is an indictment of the players projected ahead of them. Other times, it's an endorsement of the backup. In most cases, it's a varied combination of the two.

This list includes all of the above.
