Bradford is projected by many to go #1 overall in April's draft despite missing the majority of his junior season at Oklahoma with a shoulder injury. In his sophomore season, Bradford won the Heisman Trophy and led Oklahoma to

Clausen played in a pro-style offense in college under Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis, racking up 3,722 yards passing and 28 touchdowns during the 2009 season. Scouts love Clausen's accuracy, toughness, and pro pedigree.

Like Bradford, questions were raised when McCoy hurt his throwing shoulder in the 2010 National Championship game against Alabama. McCoy, who won an NCAA record 45 games while at Texas, answered any doubts about his injury at Texas' pro day when he showed great accuracy on short throws. But concerns about his size and arm strength remain.

A Heisman Trophy winner and multiple-time NCAA National Champion at Florida, Tebow's intangibles and winning attitude are his strengths. His mechanics and accuracy from the pocket are his shortcomings, but with a re-worked throwing motion Tebow's stock is looking up.

Snead was projected as a top-2 quarterback prospect (with Sam Bradford) at the outset of the 2009 season, but an inconsistent year turned his draft stock upside down. Snead opted for this year's draft despite still having one year of eligibility remaining and the hope from Ole Miss head coach Houston Nutt that he would return.

After spending two years waiting in line behind current Dophins QB Pat White, Brown was handed the starting job at West Virginia for the '09 season. Brown has great arm strength, but needs to improve his decision-making, drawing comparisons to Tavaris Jackson of the Vikings.

Pike was 27-45 for 170 yards and 3 touchdowns in the Bearcats 51-24 loss to Florida in the 2010 Sugar Bowl. He has big-time arm strength, zip on his throws, and all the physical tools to be a solid pro quarterback. But the Cincy gunslinger has to work on his field vision and accuracy.

Kafka transformed from a run-first threat to the Big Ten's leader in passing yards in 2009, and his workouts have proved his pro-level athleticism and arm strength. According to the scouts, accuracy and intangibles are the only things keeping the Wildcats' QB out of the top handful of prospects.

Skelton might not be a familiar name, but his great arm strength and prototypical size make him a solid prop prospect, despite playing in a non-BCS conference in college. But Skelton primarily worked out of the shotgun at Fordham while facing sub-par competition, so questions remain about his transition to the NFL game.

Brown, who ran the spread at Troy to the tune of 4,254 yards and 23 TD's in 2009, has seen his stock jump thanks to impressive showings at the combine and in his pro day. Projected as a third-day pick, Brown lacks top-flight arm strength and has yet to play in a pro style offense.
