Jameis Winston (Tampa Bay Buccaneers) and Marcus Mariota (Tennessee Titans) were the first two overall picks in the NFL Draft, but no other quarterback was taken in the first round. Here are the top QB's left that are hoping to hear their names called in the second or third round tonight:
4) Sean Mannion, Oregon State
Mannion is rising up draft boards – some scouts have him as the third best quarterback prospect available – due to his outstanding size (6’6″, 229 lbs.) and outstanding arm strength. However, he’s not very mobile and can panic when pressured.
3) Garrett Grayson, Colorado State
Grayson is the sleeper in this year’s quarterback class. He has excellent awareness, accuracy and athleticism, but playing in a small conference has some scouts worried if his game will translate to the next level. Grayson has an odd throwing motion that will scare some scouts away, but his intangibles are off the charts.
2) Bryce Petty, Baylor
Petty has prototypical size (6’3″, 230 lbs.), arm strength, accuracy, and mobility, but he comes from a spread offense system, and quarterbacks that come from those systems haven’t seen a lot of success in the NFL. Questions remain about his ability to dissect a defense, but he has all of the physical tools to be a starter.
1) Brett Hundley, UCLA
Hundley had a somewhat disappointing junior season, but his elite mobility and accuracy made him stand out to NFL scouts. He comes from a spread offensive system similar to Petty, so there are questions about his ability to read a defense.Back to the NFL Newsfeed
