The next few choices are all so close and so similar they can easily be switched in and out of each other.
11. Darron Thomas: Oregon
10. Denard Robinson: Michigan
9. Clint Moseley: Auburn
8. Jordan Jefferson: LSU
These quarterbacks bring a unique situation to the table in 2011. They will all manage very good teams but could easily be replaced by season end, or in Robinson's case, be too banged up to even finish. Michigan was getting close last year and Brady Hoke will put them back in the spotlight.
Thomas brings the most to the table with a dynamic Oregon team and plenty of experience, however, Jefferson has seen some highs and lows in Baton Rouge and will try to push the tigers to the next level, once again.
It's tough putting a quarterback with no experience in these polls, but you cannot leave out an Auburn or Alabama either, just because they are replacing one five star recruit with another. Auburn will be a top 15 team next year, even if Moseley turns out to be awful.
