Here are the best quarterbacks eligble for the 2012 NFL draft not named Andrew Luck or Robert Griffin III:
408-for-564, 4,727 yards, 37 TDs, 13 INTs; the Cowboys finished the season 12-1.
Weeden has strong skills and has performed at a high level on the biggest stages, winning games this season against
, expected to be drafted ahead of him. But he's 28 after five years of minor league baseball and his age will a factor in the 2012 draft.
327-for-531, 3,744 yards, 29 TDs, 15 INTs; the Aggies finished the season 7-6.
Unlike Weeden, Tannehill did not rise to the level of his competition this year. He threw three interceptions each in games against Texas, Oklahoma and Oklahoma St., three of the Aggies toughest opponents.
326-for-439, 3,800 yards, 43 TDs, 9 INTs; the
finished the season 12-1.
Is Moore just a great college quarterback? He's that for sure with a 50-3 collegiate record, Heisman nominee, two-time All-America. But in the pros, Moore's size will work against him. Hmmm. Six-feet, 195 pounds. That's about
' size, no? Maybe, Moore's velocity also is an issue.
225-for-309, 3,175 yards, 33 TDs, 4 INTs; the Badgers finished the season 11-3.
If size is an issue with Moore it certainly will be with Wilson, who measures an inch or two shorter. Wilson's football IQ is not in question after he transferred from N.C. State to Wisconsin and didn't miss a beat.
267-for-419, 3,316 yards, 25 TDs, 10 INTs; the Spartans finished the season 11-3.
Cousins seems to have the size and skils, but his intangibles are in question. How will he stand up to the pressure of an NFL pass rush or perform in the clutch? He's taken 35 sacks in the last two seasons.
237-for-447, 3,153 yards, 23 TDs, 8 INTs; the Aztecs finished the season 8-5.
Lindley looks like a development project, who may need a few years to get his NFL legs. He has the size (6-4, 225) and strength, but he can be erratic and inconsistent.
387-for-560, 4,334 yards 28 TDs, 14 INTs; the Wildcats finished the season 4-8.
