    1. [​IMG] Marcus Mariota*, QB, Oregon
      Height: 6-4. Weight: 218.
      Projected 40 Time: 4.65.
      Projected Round (2015): Top-10 Pick.

      5/24/14: There is no denying that Mariota has a great physical skill set and is a tremendous athlete with rare mobility. He is a dangerous running threat. Mariota needs work to develop as a pocket passer for the NFL, but he has the arm, size and height to live in the pocket. The junior needs to continue to refine his footwork and throwing mechanics. In 2013, Mariota completed 64 percent of his passes for 3,665 yards with 31 touchdowns and four interceptions. On the ground, the redshirt sophomore ran for 715 yards with nine touchdowns. While Mariota did a great job of avoiding throwing picks, he had some issues with fumbles.

      Mariota did a good job of running Oregon's high-scoring attack in 2012. The redshirt freshman completed 68 percent of his passes for 2,677 yards with 32 touchdowns and six interceptions. He also ran for 898 yards (752 net) with five touchdowns.

      Mariota needs to use 2014 to show the NFL that he has the ability to be a pocket passer.

      Personal: From Hawaii. Majoring in human physiology. Son of Toa Mariota and Alana Deppe-Mariota.

    2. [​IMG] Jameis Winston**, QB, Florida State
      Height: 6-4. Weight: 228.
      Projected 40 Time: 4.70.
      Projected Round (2014): Top-10 Pick.

      5/24/14: Winston took college football by storm in 2013 as the Heisman Trophy winner while leading Florida State to a National Championship. The redshirt freshman demonstrated a quality arm with well-developed passing ability. Winston completed 67 percent of his passes for 4,057 yards with 40 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. On the ground, he ran for 219 yards with four touchdowns.

      Winston is a rare athlete who is a natural passer. His field vision and decision-making were phenomenal in 2013. It was extremely impressive for a first-year starter and is scary to think how good his field vision could be in the future as he gains more experience. He also showed incredible poise for a young player. Winston is a rare talent.

      Personal: Winston has had some off-the-field problems including an investigation into a sexual assault and a theft at a Publix grocery store. He also has pitched for Florida State's baseball team. His focus and maturity will be questioned by NFL teams.

    Shane Carden belongs on that QB list. Maybe top 7-13 range.
    NFL.com has him 7th, NFL draft scouts have him 13.

    213 lbs

    2013 stats:

    4135 yards
    70.5 comp %
    150 QB rate

    Probably a later round pick for someone.
    Somewhat similar to AJ McCarron

    I'm kind of intrigued by Hogan from Stanford.

    me also some one said he has a hitch in his throwing method - I don't see it

    Hogan's uncle, Coley O'Brien, was a quarterback/tailback at Notre Dame in the 1960's.

    Hogan reports a 3.1 core GPA and a 1900 three-part SAT.

    But Sanford described his off-camera personality as "magnetic."


    "Kevin's always been a guy that his teammates have gravitated toward, even when he was in the shadows of the quarterback race a year ago," he said. "His class that he came in with, they've always rallied behind him."

    He does. He throws a very nice deep ball but his accuracy on shorter passes can be improved.

    They talked about it (the hitch) in length on ESPN's GameDay one week.

    i want one of these 4:
    • Bryce Petty, QB, Baylor
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 230.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.75.
    Projected Round (2015): 2-3.

    5/24/14: 2013 was an impressive debut season for Petty as Baylor's starting quarterback. The dual-threat quarterback could definitely improve now that he has gained a year of experience. Petty completed 62 percent of his passes for 4,200 yards with 32 touchdowns and three interceptions. He ran for 339 yards and 14 touchdowns as well. Petty backed up Robert Griffin III and Nick Florence for three seasons.
    Personal: Son of Todd and Dena Petty. Graduated in May of 2013 with a degree in health science studies.​

    • Sean Mannion, QB, Oregon State
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 214.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.76.
    Projected Round (2015): 2-3.

    5/24/14: Over three seasons as a starter Mannion has improved his passing skills. Mannion lit up defenses in the Pac 12 in 2013 as he completed 66.3 percent of his passes for 4,662 yards with 37 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. Mannion needs to improve his anticipation. He started the season strong before having some ugly games in November against USC, Arizona State and Washington. He is prone to hold on to the ball too long as he took 25 sacks as a junior and 24 sacks as a freshman (12 as a sophomore).
    In 2012 Mannion completed 65 percent of his passes for 2,446 yards with 15 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. He became the Beavers' starting quarterback in 2011. The redshirt freshman completed 65 percent of his passes for 3,328 yards with 16 touchdowns and 18 interceptions.
    Mannion needs to show improved decision-making and ball security. He also needs to play better against his elite opponents and not just rack up numbers against weak teams.
    Personal: Son of John and Inga. Sean is a coach's kid as his father is a high school football coach.​

    • Connor Cook*, QB, Michigan State

    Height: 6-4. Weight: 218.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.85.
    Projected Round (2014): 2-3.

    5/24/14: 2013 was Cook's first year as the full-time starter, and he got off to a slow start before coming on strong in the second half of the season to help lead the Spartans to a Big Ten title and victory over Stanford in the Rose Bowl. Cook completed 58.7 percent of his passes for 2,755 yards with 22 touchdowns and six interceptions. He had great games against Ohio State (24-40 for 304 with 3 touchdowns, 1 interception) and Stanford (22-36 for 332 yards with 2 touchdown, 1 interception) to close out the season.
    Cook is generally a good decision-maker who has the size, arm and field vision to be a good pocket passer. He should be even better now that he has a year of experience. Becoming a first-round prospect isn't out of the question for Cook, but skipping the 2015 NFL Draft and returning for his senior season of college football could help him achieve that.​
    • Kevin Hogan*, QB, Stanford
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 220.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.79.
    Projected Round (2015): 3-5.

    5/24/14: Hogan wasn't as good as expected in 2013 as Stanford's passing attack was underwhelming. For the season, he completed 61 percent of his passes for 2,630 yards with 20 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Hogan averaged 4.5 yards per carry for 314 yards on the ground with two touchdowns, too. Stanford seemed to trust him less and less as the season wore on. Hogan is capable of making some great throws, but also seems to get confused at times. He needs to become more consistent.
    In an upset over Oregon, the redshirt junior made some clutch throws for the Cardinal. He had a letdown in a road loss at USC, but bounced back to a degree against Arizona State and UCLA. Hogan was wise to return to the Cardinal for 2014.
    Hogan started out 2012 as a backup before taking over from Josh Nunes. The change paid off as Hogan played excellent football down the stretch. He completed 72 percent of his passes for 1,096 yards with nine touchdowns and three interceptions in 2012.
    Hogan (6-4, 220) should get better with experience. He showed real passing talent with accuracy and a strong arm.
    Personal: Majoring in science, technology and society. Son of Donna and Jerry Hogan.​

    Mannion is someone I predict we will probably show interest in if Garrett is still around. He is well connected to Riley and should tap into that relationship.

    For the first time in many years, the OL is good enough to draft a true pocket passer. That is something to consider. They are no longer in a position that requires a QB prospect to have "running for his life" as his top talent.

    Personally, I'd like to wait another year and go all in for Christian Hackenberg in 2016. But that's unlikely.

    Connor Cook is one of my favorites if we draft a QB next year.
