Default Rank the TOP 4 QB's in this years draft

From this draft who do you think are going the be the best NFL QB's.


This is my personal ranking:

1. Cutler - He has by far the best arm, the quickest release, good vision and did a great job while being on a Teir 2 team against stiff competition. When facing tough competiton in the senior bowl he clearly stood head and shoulders above the rest. I see him being in the peyton manning mold of players.

2. Leinart - Obviously he had the best college career of any QB entering the draft. Proven leader and is very clutch, extremely accurate passer. There are questions about his arm strength.

3. Young - Certainly the most exciting player, he is an amazing runner no doubt about it and a pretty good passer. Given the type of offense Texas ran and how he was used in the offense, he is the biggest risk of the QBs but might have the biggest upside. (I have him and Leinart rated very close, but Leinart proved more in college and has less question marks.)

4. Croyle - Rated high by many draft experts but in my mind he still has way too much to prove. Would be a decent 2nd round pick.

Good to see Young not rated #1 and someone else who likes Croyle. I think cutler is overrated.

My list:

1. Leinart
2. Omar Jacobs
3. Cutler
4. Young
5. Croyle
6. Grabadorskie (sp) qb from Toledo
7. Drew Olson
8. Charlie Whiteherst
9. Guy from Miami OH


My list is not based on Athletes/Players. I ranked them as QB'S

I think most people would think Cutler is the best if he had any talent around him.

What effect (if any) does leinart's knee issue (surgery/ the big brace) have on his draft status? Is that brace purely precautionary or is he needing that thing to play?

Cutler got by on physical talent and luck. He is a great prospect, like Farve. He is a gunslinger, and has little fear or notion that one of his passes could be picked off.

Jacobs appears to be the "dark horse" of the QB class.

I agree with most of ur points made, but ur forgetting that Omar Jacobs through for 41 TDs and only 4ints as a soph. Plus he runs a 4.55, and hes 6'4 with perfect accuracy, but besides my point, who do u think will get omar jacobs, do the texans have a chance.

Nunusguy just said that omar is the 2nd best runnin QB and the 3rd best Passing QB , which still averages out of him being the best QB in the draft and if the Lions were smart they would pick him up instead of letting Arizona get him and waste more time on Joey Harrington.

Does anyone think that if Omar does good in the combine that he can get taken in the first round. By what i have heard from some draft experts, Jacobs will be a better NFL Prospect then Leinart does anyone agree on this?
