QB Class

Here’s ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay on this year’s quarterback class. It sort of refutes last year’s assumption that Mark Sanchez would face tough competition if he came out this year.

“I think the problem with this class is that there’s not a lot of elite quarterback prospects. You have Sam Bradford from Oklahoma, Notre Dame’s Jimmy Clausen. Then you have a little bit of a drop off there. I think Colt McCoy (Texas) is a second or third-rounder. I think Tony Pike (Cincinnati) is moving up in that third-round range as well. Then Tim Tebow (Florida), in my opinion, is no better than a third-round draft pick.
“After that you’re looking more at developmental quarterbacks, like John Skelton from Fordham, who is a big, strong-armed quarterback; Sean Canfield, who is here this week from Oregon State, who doesn’t have great tools but has the mind and the accuracy; Jarrett Brown from West Virginia is very raw or Dan LeFevour from Central Michigan who has enough tools but needs time to develop as well.”
