Mayock Ranks Top Five QBs In Draft

With the NFL Scouting Combine set to get underway next week in Indianapolis, let's start to take a peek at some of the rankings of the draft prospects at each position. Today, let's check out NFL Network draft expert Mike Mayock's top five players at the quarterback position. The notes on each player were provided by NFL.com from their Combine section.

Mayock's Top 5 Quarterbacks
Name Height Weight College
1. Blaine Gabbert * 6-5
240
Missouri
Note:* Gabbert has it all physically, but has a long way to go before he's ready to lead an NFL offense because he played in a spread offense.
2. Jake Locker 6-3
230
Washington
Note: Locker decided to return for his senior season and his erratic play certainly hurt his stock. An extremely gifted athlete, his production does not match his talent.
3. Cam Newton 6-6
248
Auburn
Note: Newton is one of the most athletically gifted quarterbacks in draft history. Possesses a quick, clean release, enough arm strength to complete the deep out, prototypical size, and is a dangerous threat outside of the pocket.
4. Ryan Mallett 6-7
238
Arkansas
Note: Mallett has the arm strength and size of a franchise NFL quarterback but still needs to continue to develop his accuracy and decision-making consistency.
5. Andy Dalton 6-3
220
TCU
Note: Dalton is four-year starter and proven winner, but he will have a difficult transition to the NFL. He is undersized, but is generally an accurate passer.
