if you're going by college stats, keenum is the current elite, and the kids from texas tech and hawaii have won the last 3 superbowls. david carr is on his way to the hall of fame (ugh i feel dirty writing that).
You're bypassing the level-of-competition metric in making Keenum, et al. elite.

VY had better prototypical size, yes. He was a great "athlete".

Your attribution of Arm Strength and accuracy advantage can't be so easily supported.
