The 2014 NFL draft class is shaping up to be one of the best in recent memory, but a draft class is only as good as its quarterbacks.
In the 2013 class, we saw just one quarterback (EJ Manuel) drafted in the first round. The lack of top-end talent at the position led many to label the 2013 class weak—a statement that was true about one position, not the entire class. Whether it's the media, fans or even NFL teams, we're all looking at each draft and, fairly or not, rating its potential impact by the talent at quarterback alone.
That's good news for the 2014 class, which features an eye-popping 25 quarterbacks with NFL-level talent. Not all 25 QBs are seniors, as we could see an influx of underclassmen ready to take the league by storm.
Who are the quarterbacks worth watching during the college football season? Here's a preseason preview of the best of the best.
