2013 NFL Draft – Updated Quarterback Rankings
Quarterbacks are the back bone of the NFL and teams must have a quality starter to make the playoffs and an elite signal caller to win a Super Bowl. Teams looking for help have some good options in 2013, including three youngsters who should be taken early in the draft next spring.
Geno Smith has taken over the top spot in the latest quarterback rankings and despite struggling in his last start, Smith is still ranked as the top prospect for the 2013 draft. The West Virginia senior is 6'3" with a strong throwing arm and good mobility, but his decision making has scouts the most excited as he has just two interceptions this season and only 17 with over 1.200 passing attempts in his career as a Mountaineer.
While Smith's stock has skyrocketed, Logan Thomas of Virginia Tech has the biggest drop as the Virginia Tech signal caller has struggled this season with 10 interceptions and a poor completion percentage, but his 6'6" frame and rocket arm still has the Hokies quarterback as a top 40 pick. Thomas has the benefit of one more year of eligibility, but that decision won't likely happen until after the current college football season is over.
One of the top sleeper picks in next year's NFL Draft is quarterback Brad Sorenson of Southern Utah. The 6'4" senior has a cannon for an arm and above-average accuracy. This year in a game against Pac 12 California, the youngster completed 31-45 for 292 yards and four touchdowns and he showed scouts he has the poise and confidence to handle playing against tough competition.
