  1. Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 218.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.62.
    Projected Round (2014): 1.

    8/22/13: Bridgewater was the one of the best quarterbacks in college football in 2012. He carried Louisville to an 11-2 season including a Sugar Bowl win over Florida. The sophomore completed 68.5 percent of his passes for 3,718 yards with 27 touchdowns and eight interceptions. He ran for 237 yards (211 net) and a touchdown, too.

    Florida safety Matt Elam said that Bridgewater was the best quarterback the Gators played last year. That was high praise considering Florida took on Johnny Manziel, Tyler Bray, Aaron Murray and E.J. Manuel. The Gators' defense had just dominated Manuel, but Bridgewater completed 20-of-33 passes for 266 yards with two touchdowns and an interception on a tipped pass.

    Bridgewater has an excellent physical skill set. He possesses pure passing ability with some running ability to hurt defenses on the ground. The junior has a strong arm and with natural accuracy. Bridgewater is still developing physically and mentally. He could turn into a special player.

    Bridgewater took college football by storm in 2011 and was named the Big East Rookie of the Year. The true freshman completed 64.5 percent of his passes for 2,129 yards and 14 touchdowns in 2011. He ran for 265 yards (66 net) and four touchdowns, too. Despite the lack of experience, Bridgewater was calm and showed excellent composure.

    Personal: Sports administration major, son of Rose Murphy.




  2. Johnny Manziel*, QB, Texas A&M
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 200.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.60.
    Projected Round (2014): 1-2.

    8/22/13: Manziel was the breakout star of college football in 2012 and became a national celebrity en route to winning the Heisman Trophy. The redshirt freshman dominated the SEC as a dual-threat quarterback. He completed 68 percent of his passes for 3,706 yards with 26 touchdowns and nine interceptions. Manziel also ran for 1,410 yards (1,571 net) with 21 touchdowns on the ground. He was an absolute force.

    Manziel has a good arm and accuracy for a pro prospect, but will need to continue to develop his ability to be a pocket passer. Specifically, Manziel needs to improve his footwork and become more uniform with his feet and throwing mechanics. Obviously, Manziel has great mobility. He is so dangerous when he is on the run with the threat to keep it himself or pass the ball. Alabama's 2012 defense, comprised of NFL talent, lost at home to Manziel as he put up almost 350 yards of total offense.

    The Aggies' signal-caller comes off as a bit of a wild child who enjoys his celebrity status off the field. Some NFL teams will wonder about his dedication to football, but there will definitely be a team that is willing to overlook it. Manziel is undersized, but with the success of quarterbacks like Russell Wilson and Drew Brees, it shouldn't prevent him from being drafted highly.

    Personal: Business major, son of Michelle and Paul Manziel.


  3. Brett Hundley*, QB, UCLA
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 227.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.69.
    Projected Round (2014): 1-3.

    8/22/13: Johnny Manziel received all the headlines last year, but he wasn't the only redshirt freshman quarterback who had an impressive season. Hundley led the Bruins' revival and helped get his team to the Pac-12 Championship Game. He completed 66 percent of his passes in 2012 for 3,740 yards with 29 touchdowns and 11 interceptions, plus ran for 702 yards (355 net) with nine touchdowns.

    Hundley scored on a 72-yard touchdown run against Rice on his first play of 2012. He threw for 372 yards against a good Oregon State team and finished the year with 329 yards and three touchdowns versus Baylor.

    The UCLA coaching staff has a lot of NFL experience and is grooming Hundley well for the next level. He fits in the mold of athletic quarterbacks with good arms. Hundley has room for improvement, but he has the potential to rise high into the first round.

    Personal: Undeclared major. Son of Brett, Sr. and April Hundley.


  4. Kevin Hogan*, QB, Stanford
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 220.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.79.
    Projected Round (2014): 1-3.

    8/22/13: It wouldn't be surprising to see Hogan have a great 2013 season, but pull an Andrew Luck and return for another year. Hogan started out last year as a backup before taking over for 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.




  5. Marcus Mariota*, QB, Oregon
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 218.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.65.
    Projected Round (2014): 1-3.

    8/22/13: There is no denying that Mariota has a nice physical skill set and is a good athlete. He needs work to develop as a passer for the NFL. Mariota did a good job of running Oregon's high-scoring attack last year. 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 hasn't had a lot of pressure on him in the Ducks' offense because of a tremendous running game. He needs to show the NFL that he has the ability to be a pocket passer. Mariota is only a redshirt sophomore, so he has plenty of time to do that.

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


  6. Jeff Driskel, QB, Florida
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 237.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.63.
    Projected Round (2014): 2-4.

    8/22/13: The true junior is a legitimate dual-threat quarterback. He is a big, quick runner with excellent mobility. Driskel needs to develop his pocket passing, and if he does, he could sky rocket up these rankings. It currently looks like Driskell should stay for his senior season to improve before entering the NFL.

    Driskell won the starting quarterback position last season. There were games where the sophomore flashed greatness, but he struggled to move the ball in other outings. Driskell completed 64 percent of his passes for 1,646 yards with 12 touchdowns and five interceptions. He also ran for 716 yards (413 net) with four touchdowns.

    Driskel was the top quarterback in the nation coming out of high school and signed on to play for Urban Meyer at Florida. Driskel honored his commitment to attend Florida despite Meyer leaving the Gators. The true freshman was intially a backup in 2011, but he saw playing time due to injuries.

    Driskel himself was injured in 2011 against Alabama and was limited for the rest the year. He saw playing time in a total of five games, but only saw significant playing time in a loss to Auburn. Driskel completed 16-of-34 passes for 148 yards with zero touchdowns and two interceptions for the year.




  7. Braxton Miller, QB, Ohio State
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 215.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.60.
    Projected Round (2014): 3-5.

    8/22/13: Miller is a great athlete who needs to improve as a passer. He saw his first action as a freshman in 2011 and completed 54 percent of his passes for 1,159 yards with 13 touchdowns and four interceptions. His completion percentage in 2012 rose to 58 percent for 2,039 yards with 15 touchdowns and six interceptions. The sophomore ran for 1,271 yards and 13 touchowns, too.

    Miller's best skill is his running ability. If the junior can develop his accuracy and ability to be a pocket passer, he could rise in the rankings.

    Personal: Communications major, son of Kelly and Kevin Miller.


  8. Travis Wilson*, QB, Utah
    Height: 6-6. Weight: 240.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.85.
    Projected Round (2014): 3-5.

    8/22/13: Wilson started seven games as a true freshman in 2012 and the Utes went 3-4 with him under center. He completed 63 percent of his passes for 1,311 yards with seven touchdowns and six interceptions. Wilson also ran for four touchdowns. He should be improved in 2013 and 2014.

    Personal: Son of JoMarie and Tim Wilson.


  9. J.W. Walsh*, QB, Oklahoma State
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 205.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.70.
    Projected Round (2014): 3-5.

    8/22/13: Walsh earned playing time as a redshirt freshman in 2012 after backing up Brandon Weeden in 2011. Walsh flashed some passing and running ability during his playing time. He completed 67 percent of his passes for 1,564 yards with 13 touchdowns and three interceptions. Walsh ran for 320 yards (290 net) and seven touchdowns, too. The sophomore should take over as the starting quarterback and put up some huge numbers going against Big XII defenses in 2013 and 2014.

    Personal: Son of John and Amber Walsh. Majoring in education.




  10. Chuckie Keeton, QB, Utah State
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 200.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.65.
    Projected Round (2014): 5-6.

    8/22/13: Keeton had a breakout sophomore season and was the 2012 First-Team All-WAC quarterback. He completed 68 percent of his passes for 3,373 yards with 27 touchdowns and nine interceptions. Keeton also ran for 751 yards (619 net) with eight touchdowns.

    Personal: Management information systems major. Son of Charles and Lavern Keeton.


  11. Gary Nova, QB, Rutgers
    Height: 6-2. Weight: 225.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.65.
    Projected Round (2014): 6-FA.

    8/22/13: Nova is a pro-style, game-manager quarterback. The sophomore completed 57 percent of his passes for 2,695 yards with 22 touchdowns and 16 interceptions last season. He threw for 1,553 yards with 11 touchdowns and nine interceptions in 2011.





  12. Sean Mannion, QB, Oregon State
    Height: 6-5. Weight: 214.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.76.
    Projected Round (2014): 6-FA.

    8/22/13: Mannion completed 65 percent of his passes for 2,446 yards with 15 touchdowns and 13 interceptions last season. 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 improve his overall game over the next couple of years.

    Personal: Son of John and Inga. Sean is a coach's kid as his father is a high school football coach.


  13. Max Wittek*, QB, USC
    Height: 6-4. Weight: 235.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.79.
    Projected Round (2014): 6-FA.

    8/22/13: Wittek is competing for the starting quarterback position for USC. He was the backup to Matt Barkley last year and started two games after Barkley was knocked out with a shoulder injury. The redshirt freshman didn't impress against Notre Dame and Georgia Tech. He threw two touchdowns and five interceptions in those contests. Wittek completed only 14-of-37 passes versus the Yellow Jackets despite having star receivers Marqise Lee and Robert Woods to work with. Wittek completed 36-of-69 passes for 388 yards with three touchdowns and five interceptions on the season.


  14. Jacoby Brissett, QB, N.C. State
    Height: 6-3. Weight: 239.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.63.
    Projected Round (2014): FA.

    8/22/13: Brissett is sitting out the 2013 season per NCAA rules after transferring from Florida. He spent last year as Jeff Driskel's backup. Brissett threw for 249 yards and a touchdown in relief duty.

    Brissett came to Florida as a recruit of 1-year offensive coordinator Charlie Weis. Brissett began his freshman season as the third quarterback, but injuries forced him into the lineup. The freshman flashed at times and also had some struggles. He completed 18-of-39 passes for 206 yards with two touchdowns and four interceptions.

    Brissett has good arm strength, pocket presence and composure.

Watch for Former Oregon Backup QB, Bryan Bennett, a 6'3", 199-pound QB played for Southeastern Louisiana University last year as a Senior. He passed for over 3,000 yards and 21 TDs. He also rushed for 1,046 yards for a 5.7 yds/carry average and 15 TDs.

He needs to make some HUGE improvements if he wants to play QB in the NFL. He's nowhere close to an NFL QB right now and wouldn't be drafted as one.

Ududd last I checked Lynch is a senior so he'll already be in the NFL(or maybe CFL)by the 2015 draft.

Blake Bortles has scouts drooling. He has been compared to Andrew Luck, with better feet. If Blake Bortles declares, some scouts say he will definitely be the first quarterback taken in the 2014 draft.

I'm predicting he will be the very first pick in the 2014. He is a more athletic clone of Andrew Luck.

To all the other dumbasses claiming Jameis Winston needs to be on the list, he's a freaking freshman. He's not draft eligible so shut up! Where is Carr on this list?

Thank you, that is all.

lol "Watch List: Jameis Winston" Then I looked at the date the last time this was updated and figured out what was going on. FWIW I really think he is the best QB prospect in College Football.
