Andrew Luck has solidified himself as my top quarterback prospect.

Andrew Luck- Stanford* (RS Soph)- Luck is a long shot to come out this year, but he’s a legit Heisman candidate in 2010. He’s raw, but has a nice throwing motion and makes throws look easy. Luck’s biggest flaw is that he needs to put a bit more touch on his passes. Top 5 Pick

Ryan Mallett- Arkansas*- Mallett is a big, strong-armed quarterback. At 6’7, 235 pounds, Mallett stands tall in the pocket and delivers throws all over the field, but really has a knack for finding his receivers deep. His accuracy is quite a question mark, however, as he struggles with the short-intermediate routes. He threw for an outstanding 9.0 per attempt in 2009. Top 10 Pick

Jake Locker- Washington- This 6’3, 230-pound specimen is one of the most talented players in college football. He puts good zip on the ball, really does well with the short-intermediate routes. He’s improved each season, and with a bit more accuracy he will become an elite NFL quarterback. 1st Round Pick

Nick Foles- Arizona*- Foles is a 6’5, 246 pound quarterback who has great footwork and puts nice zip on the football. He’s a pretty accurate passer, often leading his receivers and preventing them from taking big hits. He probably won’t be a star, but he has potential to be a legitimate starting quarterback at the next level. 2nd-3rd Round Pick

Jerrod Johnson- Texas A&M- Johnson is a good sized quarterback with an above average arm. He can throw on the run, but plays in a spread offense that pads his stats a bit. He needs work on his technique, often holding the ball low and doesn’t put enough zip on the ball. 3rd Round Pick
