2012 NFL Draft: Ranking the Top 20 QB Prospects of the Last 5 Drafts

As drafts advance, some quarterbacks burst into stardom while others bust into infamy. Some quarterbacks are considered elite before the draft process, while others surprise scouts with their success.

Whatever the case, scouting quarterbacks gives the ultimate testament to the fact that scouting is an inexact science where so many factors—too many to really control—can influence a quarterback's pro career.

So, to compare this 2012 quarterback class with the classes from 2008-2011, we can get a better feel for how elite these quarterbacks are this year and what we really can expect.

Note: These rankings are based off of my scouting at OptimumScouting.com, and are based off of COLLEGE Scouting, not current/recent pro performance. A few exceptions have been made from our rankings from college to make this list more based off potential that wasn't included in our pre-draft rankings.
