2012 NFL Draft: 5 Best Situations for Top Rated QBs

Before we get into the slideshow and discuss possible destinations and scenarios for the 2012 draft class, I need first to qualify who the young men are we will be discussing.  

First off is Andrew Luck. This guy has every expert I've heard raving about him. ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. has him rated as the highest rated QB in the draft since John Elway. That speaks for itself because a lot of excellent QBs have come out since John Elway. The grade system that all NFL teams use to grade players coming out of college have Luck as a 9.6 out of ten. Peyton Manning graded at a 9.3

Matt Barkley is the second ranked QB, next in a long line of USC quarterbacks who are set to be given an opportunity in the NFL. Barkley was a special talent who maybe hasn't gotten the national attention he deserves, as he showed up at USC directly before the hammer was brought down on them by the NCAA.  The experts like Barkley because of the potential for his technique and fundamentals to translate to the NFL level. 

As for Oklahoma QB Landry Jones, he might have Sam Bradford to thank for his high draft status. However, I like Landry's NFL potential because he has shown two years of solid quarterbacking and is currently at the helm of the nation's No. 2-ranked team.

For informational purposes, I only have these three going in the first round.
