I don't think so Kiwi. You can check page 3 of the college forum and all of the mocks in Nov and before that.
Some liked Boyd, but others (including myself) have been saying since last year that it was the receivers that made him look good. He has fallen off the radar game by game.
Some like Hundley's potential (even early on), but he's going back to school, as he should.
Another underclassman, Mariotta, also showed promises; he will probably go back to school to hone his passing skills.
Manziel is an exciting college QB, but there has always been concern about whether his skill set will translate to the pro game. Despite having NFL caliber OTs, he get out of the pocket too often.
Murray always had that gunslinger mentality, and made stupid decisions too often, besides being short; he's a long shot.
McCarron never displayed a strong arm, even though it's not terrible.
Whether he can play well under pressure was always a question mark.
Nobody knew about Bortles until recently.
Derek Carr and David Fales played against poor competition; both have shown not to be able to play well under pressure.
Mettenberg was not high on many people's list.
His injury only helps cloud the picture further.
Bridgewater became the favorite of many (but not a vast majority) by default.
His name was never mentioned early on.
Basically, IMO, it's a deeper class than last year, but that doesn't say much.
