Locker, Mallett, Newton and Devlin in that order, then Stanzi and Ponder.
Gabbert is so friggin overrated. He is Alex Smith Part 2.
I agree with all of the above except I'd rate Stanzi and Ponder ahead of Devlin.
I agree, seriouly, where the hell did all this blaine gabbert talk come from, dude was out of shape, inaacurate and eratic, and thats just in college, yet I see mocks with him as the first qb off the board, over mallet or newton, thats lunacy.
Do you have facts to back these claims up??? Stanzi is less accurate then Devlin and yes he also has worse completion percentage than Devlin as well.
Gabbert is on the top because of his intangibles and his ability to carry his team with arm and leadership. During the bowl game when they had zero running game he had to do everything himself and nearly won the game. Also how was he out of shape? His mobility is part of his up sides, he plays through pain and can physically keep pace with the speed of the game.
Mallett has the infamous "character issue" stigma attached to him. I personally think he was simply pissed off that Michigan had gone in the opposite direction than what they had pitched to him during his recruitment.
Newton is a 1 year wonder and a complete unknown. With no game film on him the first 4 games of the year were complete surprises to everyone and after that you could argue that he is the real deal. He is a first round talent because of his attitude and pure talent but not the #1 QB in the draft by a long shot.
Ponder is damaged good and will fall. He will be a steal in the 3rd or 4th round. We could see Delvin and/or Stanzi get picked before him now.
Devlin is D1 talent but had to go Delaware to get more years for eligibility due to lack of playing time at Penn State. Probably the quickest developing prospect available in the later rounds.
Stanzi and Dalton are tied at this point. I am bias towards Dalton with me being from Utah and watching Dalton destroy the MWC for the last few years. Dalton is a proven player and only his height/weight put him behind Stanzi.
