As we inch closer to the 2015 NFL Draft, we’ll start to get our top 10 rankings knocked out for viewing on a smaller scale. The quarterback class in 2015 isn’t anything to write home about, but there’s upside. Jameis Winston is almost a lock to be the first quarterback off the board, but I still believe Brett Hundley is the second best, and Pro Days and further interviews will have someone draft him earlier than expected. Marcus Mariota is known for his quiet leadership, that some GM’s are a bit nervous about, while still possessing a quality skill-set to be a great signal caller at the next level.
These rankings are subject to changes, but they’ll be updated consistently. Without further haste, here are the 2015 NFL Draft Rankings for Quarterbacks.
|1||Jameis Winston||Florida State||6’3||231||Safest QB in the draft from an on-the-field standpoint, has the tools to be a franchise signal caller.|
|2||Brett Hundley||UCLA||6’3||226||Exceptional learner as Hundley has quietly developed into a stud. I see what people don’t, and that Hundley’s a future All-Pro with the right team.|
|3||Marcus Mariota||Oregon||6’3||222||Whether it’s on or off the field, this guy simply performs. Unlimited potential but still too raw from an NFL QB standpoint.|
|4||Bryce Petty||Baylor||6’2||230||Tough QB that can extend plays with his mobility. Weak arm will hurt him. Think Alex Smith.|
|5||Garrett Grayson||Colorado State||6’2||213||Developmental mid-round prospect with upside as a solid backup and short-term starter.|
|6||Shane Carden||East Carolina||6’1||218||Looking for arm strength to match that quick release. A mechanics lesson or two may make him a keeper.|
|7||Brandon Bridge||South Alabama||6’4||229||If you’ve got the right system and a few years to develop, Bridge is your guy. Exceptional overall athlete that can make plays with his feet and deliver in the middle of the field. Lacks the footwork and mechanics to succeed but arm strength isn’t terrible.|
|8||Cody Fajardo||Nevada||6’1||223||Much like his predecessor Colin Kaepernick, Fajardo is a play-maker with his feet with a strong arm that can’t seem to settle down in the pocket. Developmental prospect.|
|9||Sean Mannion||Oregon State||6’5||229||If you’re looking for traditional Jeff George type QB, go for Mannion who has a canon but lacks quality decision making a touch. Never had the benefit of a nice offensive line though. Can make all the throws with a tune-up.|
|10||Bo Wallace||Ole Miss||6’3||217||Wallace is all about moxy and leadership. He’s a tough kid with a lot of athletic ability. He’s a learner who absorbs information. Upside is here.|
