JSOnline's Bob McGinn is one of the best beat writers on the draft and he kicks off his position rankings with QBs today. He's always got a lot of quotes sources from scouts and NFL execs and tries to balance out differing opinions.
From the feature article...
Quarterback always is the most glamorous of positions, but in a draft thin on true blue-chip players, Luck and Griffin are as good as it gets.
In a Journal Sentinel poll of 20 evaluators, 17 said Luck was the best player in the draft regardless of position. Griffin had two votes, and Alabama running back Trent Richardson got the other.
When 19 scouts agreed to rank the quarterbacks on a 1-to-5 basis, Luck was a unanimous selection and Griffin came in second on 18 ballots.
In 10 years of polling by the Journal Sentinel, Luck joined Sam Bradford in 2010 as the only quarterback to garner every first-place vote from scouts.
Assigning five points for a first-place vote and so on, Luck led with 95 points, Griffin had 75 and Ryan Tannehill was a solid third with 57.
[View Full Quote]Following, in order, were: Brandon Weeden, 18 points; Brock Osweiler, 14; Kirk Cousins, 13; Russell Wilson, six; B.J Coleman, Ryan Lindley and Kellen Moore, each two; and Nick Foles, one.
Here are JSOnline's rankings with scout's quotes.
Kind of eyebrow raising that RG3 got dinged by one scout for having an arrogance/attitude problem, which I had never heard of or seen. Maybe since he knew exactly where and when he was going in the draft he wasn't as accommodating and gracious in the pre-draft process as players typically are. I know he turned down a visit to the Colts.
