Default 2008 NFL Draft Quarterback Rankings

2008 NFL Draft Quarterback Rankings
Rivals.com

This is an above-average class with good upside if the young passers continue to develop.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
POSITION GRADE B+
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Several top prospects, including seniors Matt Ryan, Brian Brohm and Andre' Woodson, chould be first-round selections. Ryan and Brohm will likely be taken in the top 10.

Passers like Chad Henne and John David Booty look to impress during the postseason in order to climb into the first two rounds.

Delaware's Joe Flacco is an interesting small-college prospect. He made strides this fall, and could make this a special group - especially if he impresses at the NFL Combine.


Quarterback Rankings

1. Matt Ryan, Boston College, 6-5, 225
This strong-armed senior looks to hold on to his No. 1 rating with a big week at the NFL Combine.

2. Brian Brohm, Louisville, 6-4, 230
Slick-throwing veteran has the tools to become a fine NFL starter, but he needs a big workout at the Combine to stay in the top of the first round.

3. Andre' Woodson, Kentucky, 6-5, 220
Woodson is an athletic player, and he carried the Wildcats over recent seasons. However, he is slipping in the rankings and needs a strong performance in Indianapolis.

4. Chad Henne, Michigan, 6-2, 233
This talented senior answered questions about his injury-riddled final season with a huge performance at the Senior Bowl.

5. John David Booty, Southern Cal, 6-3, 215
Booty is a savvy player, and he had a strong finish to his 2007 season. Booty completed an impressive week at the Senior Bowl.

6. Joe Flacco, Delaware, 6-6, 235
Flacco is a strong-armed small college passer who scouts have been watching for some time. He was impressive throwing the ball at the Senior Bowl, and has moved up the rankings.

7. Erik Ainge, Tennessee, 6-6, 225
Ainge is a veteran passer with a tall, rangy build. He showed the ability to make big plays late in the Senior Bowl, a trait that earned him raves from scouts.

8. Colt Brennan, Hawaii, 6-2, 200
This record-setting passer came struggled with illness at the Senior Bowl. He left Mobile with major questions, and has yet to shed the "system quarterback" label.

9. Josh Johnson, San Diego, 6-2, 200
Johnson is a talented small-college passer who earned high marks at the East-West Game. He has all the skills necessary to play the position.

10. Alex Brink, Washington State, 6-2, 210
Brink is an underrated prospect who has a live arm. He has good size, and his instincts are very good.

11. Sam Keller, Nebraska, 6-4, 235
Keller is an athletic prospect who was having a strong final season before a shoulder injury ended his college career. He had a decent week – not bad, not outstanding - at the East-West game.

12. Paul Smith, Tulsa, 6-2, 195
Smith didn't play against top-flight competition in college, but he impressed scouts with his well-rounded skills at two all-star games.

13. Anthony Morelli, Penn State, 6-3, 232
14. Kevin O'Connell, San Diego State, 6-6, 225
15. Dennis Dixon, Oregon, 6-3, 205
16. Ricky Santos, New Hampshire, 6-1, 195
17. Kyle Wright, Miami, 6-4, 220
18. Omar Haugabook, Troy, 6-1, 200
19. Matt Flynn, LSU, 6-2, 230
20. Bernard Morris, Marshall, 6-3, 200

Well, he's 6 positions below Anthony Morelli, and Morelli was barely adequate as a college quarterback. If he's a sleeper, then he's in a coma right now.

There's no way Woodson falls further than early 2nd round.

never know... that's what people were saying about quinten moses last year... he went all the way to the second day...

PLUS his decision not to do anything during the combine will affect the way teams think of him...
