Every year, via the NFL Draft, bad NFL team get the chance to select the new face of their organization, a new franchise QB. However in this year’s draft there are big questions about every QB prospect, and there is virtually no consensus of who is the best prospect out there. The best prospect, Washington QB Jake Locker returned to school for his senior year, Sam Bradford who skipped the 2009 draft for school has been twice injured, Colt McCoy has his arm go dead on a pretty standard play in the BCS title game, and Notre Dame QB Jimmy Clausen just had surgery on his toe.
These are not the kind of prospects team are going to be lining up to give 50 million dollar guaranteed contracts. Several NFL tams out there need help at the QB position. The St. Louis Rams could use a QB, and have the number one pick. The Washington Redskins have a good defense and a need for a QB and are picking fourth. The Seattle Seahawks have two of the top fourteen picks and could use a franchise QB. The Buffalo Bills also could use a QB and are picking ninth.
The main problem is many of these QB don’t project as worthy of such high draft picks. Added to that there are a couple of smaller school QB’s have put together very impressive college resumes. They include Tony Pike of Cincinnati, and Dan Lefevour of Central Michigan. As NFL teams navigate through free agency, and get their scouts ready for the NFL Scouting Combine in the end of February, these are the questions every team that needs a QB will be asking.
