Johnny Manziel, Texas A&M 5-11¾ 207 4.68 Magician with great improvisational skills but he may be too much of a gambler, and size is a concern.

Teddy Bridgewater, Louisville 6-2⅛ 214 4.67 Lacks some arm strength and bulk, but he's a gamer who is physically and mentally tough.

Derek Carr, Fresno State 6-2⅜ 214 4.69 Excellent intangibles and NFL blood lines but he appears to be prone to mechanical breakdowns.

Jimmy Garoppolo, Eastern Illinois 6-2¼ 226 4.97 Well-kept secret until recently despite 45 starts. Superb release and excellent mechanics.

A.J. McCarron, Alabama 6-3¼ 220 4.82 Not a physical specimen ,but a tough guy who wins (36-4 with 2 national titles) and knows how to lead.

Logan Thomas, Virginia Tech 6-6⅛ 248 4.61 Freak athlete for his size. Tough and has a strong arm but is inconsistent in many aspects of his game.

Aaron Murray, Georgia 6-0½ 207 4.95 Started 52 games but coming off torn ACL that should be healed by camp. Lacks size and arm strength.

Tom Savage, Pittsburgh 6-3⅞ 228 4.97 Double transfer with somewhat of a checkered past but maturing as a leader. Major-league fastball.

Zach Mettenberger, Louisiana State 6-4⅞ 224 5.30 Enigmatic project who has size and a big arm but lacks mobility and consistency.
