Andrew Luck threw a huge wrench into the 2011 draft by not coming out. Similar to Jake Locker last year, Locker was supposed to be the top man throughout the NCAA 2010 season, but Luck and Cam Newton emerged.
For me, in this class there was not a guy the quality of a Peyton or Eli Manning or a Ben Roethlisberger. There has not been one since Mark Sanchez (and to all you haters, C'mon, been in league two years took the Jets to the AFC championship both, pretty can't miss), but some guys who are in this draft similar to to Drew Brees or Aaron Rodgers.
For me the key to this draft class without the immense Franchise QB talent, QBs in this draft class must develop the amazing work ethics that Broncos QB Tim Tebow has that to this point has made him successful. It was extremely well documented how much work he had to do, having to totally change his throwing motion and develop some pocket skills.
It will take some more work, but the guys in this draft class can be very successful, they only have to put the work in for their PhD and surgeon degree in reading defense and working to put the film time in and physical work to be successful.
