First lets compare Big Ben and Cam in college. Cam rushed 264 times for 1473 yards in one season. In Big Ben’s entire college career his best season was 120 attempts for 189 yards. In three years his total rushing yardage was 246 yards in 3 years and combine that with 6 years pro and you get 1038 yards. So in 9 years compared to 1 he has rushed for roughly 400 yards less. Big Ben is hard to bring down and can scramble, but if you consider a guy who on average runs 115 yards a year a running QB, then we disagree on the definition of what a running QB is.

The other guy Mentioned Young, Meredith, Staubach, Mcnabb, Garcia, Cunningham and Vick

There best year in college stats are as follows

Young 102 attempts 444 yards

Meredith 77 attempts 230 yards

Staubach 156 Attempts 418 yards rushing

McNabb 135 attempts 438 yards rushing (McNabb had about 100 yards less over 4 yards then newton had in 1)

Jeff Garcia 119 attempts 359 yards

Vick 113 Attempts 636 yards

I couldn't find Cunninghams stats anywhere if someone else finds them let me know I would be curious to see.

These numbers don't even compare, every QB on this list could pass.

All Time Rushing List

Pat White, West Virginia (2005-08): 684 carries, 4,480 yards

Brad Smith, Missouri (2002-05) 799 carries, 4,289 yards

Antwaan Randle El, Indiana (1998-01) 857 carries, 3,895 yards

Joshua Cribbs, Kent St. (2001-04) 632 carries, 3,670 yards

Dee Dowis, Air Force (1986-89) 543 carries, 3,612 yards

Kareem Wilson, Ohio (1995-98) 885 carries, 3,597 yards

Eric Crouch, Nebraska (1998-01) 648 carries, 3,434 yards

Chris McCoy, Navy (1995-97) 682 carries, 3,401

These numbers are from wikipedia so if the numbers aren't perfect that is why.

How many of these guys are good at the QB position?

I am down on Cam but I don't like Mallett or Locker in the first round either. I haven't watched enough on Gabbert to say much, but using the 7 pick on any of the other qbs is worthless. We need a qb, but these guys just aren't worth the pick.
