Top 10 Quarterbacks in the 2015 NFL Draft
By Matt Horkman

1. Marcus Mariota, Oregon
Mariota brings a rare combination of athleticism (4.52 forty), size (6-foot-4, 222) and poise to the position. His measurables and style make him a cross between Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers and Seattle’s Russell Wilson. In many ways, he is the prospect Wilson would’ve been in the 2012 draft had the Seattle quarterback stood 6-foot-4 instead of 5-foot-11. Locked in as a top 10 pick, Mariota has the characteristics of a franchise quarterback.

2. Jameis Winston, Florida State
Winston features a skill set that compares favorably to a young Ben Roethlisberger. He will use his strength and mobility within the pocket to keep plays alive, and his arm strength to stretch the field. With improved decision-making on and off the field, Winston has all the physical tools to develop into a franchise quarterback.

3. Brett Hundley, UCLA
Hundley throws bullets; his arm is as lively as any prospect in the draft. He drives his throws, showing no issues throwing outside the numbers. While scrambling, he must do a better job of keeping his eyes downfield. He’s elusive as a runner in the open field, routinely making defenders miss. He scrambled more than UCLA coaches would‘ve liked, though he played behind an inexperience offensive line that struggled to keep pressure off him. Hundley is a tough competitor, having played through an elbow injury in a crucial game versus Arizona State last season. In that game, he put forth perhaps the most impressive performance of his college career, accounting for 427 yards and five touchdowns. He’s a quick decision maker and displays high-level accuracy in both the short and deep passing games. Overall, Hundley is a high-upside prospect with arm talent that compares to a young Jay Cutler. Consistency, however, will be an issue throughout his career.

4. Bryce Petty, Baylor
Petty has good size (6-foot-2, 230) and a solid arm. He puts good velocity on the footballBryce Petty, though his accuracy is erratic. He missed too many open receivers. His footwork needs work, as he operated predominately from a spread. He waited his turn, sitting behind Robert Griffin III. He showed the toughness and determination to play through a back injury earlier in the 2014 season. He has the overall skill set to develop into a strong arm version of former Texas quarterback Colt McCoy. Like McCoy, he’s an ideal fit for the west coast offense.

5. Garrett Grayson, Colorado State
A throwback pocket passer, Grayson’s arm strength and accuracy make him an intriguing prospect. His lack of mobility -- along with his inability to deliver accurate throws outside of the pocket -- means he’ll need to play behind good pass protection. With good production as a starter over the last two seasons, someone will take a chance on Grayson as a developmental quarterback.

6. Shane Carden, East Carolina
A three-year starter, Carden displays good pocket presence. He isn’t afraid to stand tall in the pocket, step up, and take a big hit while delivering the football. His size (6-foot-2, 210) is adequate, though his throwing mechanics may need tweaking. His long-term outlook points to him being a journeymen backup.

7. Bryan Bennett, South Eastern Louisiana
Bennett’s college career started at the University of Oregon, after then head coach Chip Kelly recruited him. Once it became clear that Marcus Mariota would be the Ducks’ starter, he transferred to SE Louisiana. Possessing the prototype size and arm strength, Bennett will draw interest as a developmental quarterback. He’ll likely have a long adjustment period, though, as he must accustom himself to the speed of the NFL.

8. Brandon Bridge, South Alabama
Bridge needs to work on his ball placement. He’s often late with his throws, a trait that was apparent at the NFL Scouting combine. This suggest he may struggle adjusting to the speed of the pro game.

9. Bo Wallace, Ole Miss
Inconsistencies and injuries plagued Wallace’s college career. At times, he played like a mid-round draft pick. Other times -- such as his performance in this year’s Peach Bowl against Georgia Tech -- he’s looked undraftable. The latter will probably win out. Nevertheless, Wallace has good size and shows poise in the pocket. If he cleans up his mistakes and improves his deep ball accuracy, he could get a chance on the practice squad.

10. Sean Mannion, Oregon State
Mannion is late with his throws, doesn’t have a big arm, and was very underwhelming at the Senior Bowl. Yet, his size is incredible and there are still enough teams out there that value a throwback pocket passer. He may hear his name called on day three.

Honorable Mentions
Anthony Boone, Duke
Cody Fajardo, Nevada
Connor Halliday, Washington State
Taylor Kelly, Arizona State
Gary Nova, Rutgers
