College Football Rankings: Top 5 Quarterbacks Not Named Andrew Luck
Andrew Luck is far and away the top quarterback prospect in college football.
However, what about the rest of the field?
What unlikely standout will make a name for himself in 2011?
Who are the contenders who might knock off Luck for the title of best quarterback in the college game?
Here are five contenders Luck should keep an eye on for that title.

Robinson was an early Heisman contender in 2010 when he amassed nearly 2,000 yards of offense in the first five games.
However, injuries and inconsistent play marred the second half of his season.
It will be interesting to see if Robinson can pick up a new system and still have same impact as he did in Rich Rodriguez's offense.

Moore is a very underrated quarterback. Since he plays for Boise State, he does not get the credit he deserves.
By compiling a 38-2 record as a starter, Moore is one the most accomplished starting quarterbacks in the college game today.
The Heisman finalist will look to prove all doubters wrong in his senior season.

By far, Murray may be the best quarterback in a weak SEC.
However, wide receiver A.J. Green has gone pro, leaving Murray without his prime target.
Tight end Orson Charles and wide receiver Tavarres King will need to shoulder the load in Green's absence if Murray is to have a successful sophomore season.
Also, Georgia boasts one of the strongest offensive lines in the country, which will provide Murray more than adequate protection in 2011.

Griffin III saw his 2010 season cut short due to a knee injury.
However, the junior helped the Baylor Bears to their first bowl appearance in 15 years. The dynamic playmaker racked up over 4,000 yards of offense and 30 touchdowns in 2010.
Griffin's improvement as a passer will only increase his level of stardom as he puts Baylor back on the football map.

On the short list of early Heisman favorites along with Andrew Luck, Jones looks to capitalize on his impressive 2010 season.
Leading the Sooners to a 12-2 record as well as a win over UConn in the Fiesta Bowl, the junior looks to lead Oklahoma back to the BCS title game.
The Sooners could very well begin the season as the top-ranked program. If Jones can come close to his 2010 performance, Oklahoma will be tough to beat in 2011.
