One note:
Greg Peshek ‏@NU_Gap
With a relatively small sample size, only having 7-8 games of a QB can still throw off the numbers where they're pretty much irrelevant

You'll notice it doesn't include guys like Jimmy G, Fales or Brett Smith and that's because you simply can't find all their games online

Peshek: QB Metrics 2.0 -- McCarron, Mettenberger, Boyd, Shaw and Murray (http://www.rotoworld.com/articles/cfb/46748/349/peshek-qb-metrics-20)

Quarterbacks are one of the most misleading positions to watch as a fan or evaluator. It’s easy to get caught up on a few brilliant 40+ yard passes or a couple of misses on easy passes, thus creating a narrative that might not hold up to reality. By breaking down the metrics behind pass location, accuracy, ability under pressure we can dispel some preconceived notions. These numbers are meant to provide data to back up what you see on film in order to form a more perfect evaluation.

To do that, I’ve hand charted every one of AJ McCarron, Zach Mettenberger, Tajh Boyd, Connor Shaw and Aaron Murrays’ attempts this year on everything from pass distance to throws against the blitz. The data here can’t render an opinion for you, but it can provide an effective complement to your knowledge on a prospect...

McCarron actually looks solid from these numbers.

Mettenberger is now my #2 QB prospect after watching some actual games myself.

Interesting way to compare QBs (at least to me), nine different categories highlighted by color compared to others pic.twitter.com/2eCkD9vgJf (https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BkW9fRGCYAAE8BT.jpg:large)

Great infographic.

Great infographic.

Interesting. I'd have thought McCarron & Murray would have compared more favorably in those same categories... but looks like Manziel & Bridgewater is quite a bit above the pack.
