ANDREW LUCK, STANFORD
By now you've heard it all. He's widely considered the best quarterback prospect in years. There are absolutely no sure things in the NFL draft, but by most measures Luck is as close as it gets.
ROBERT GRIFFIN III, BAYLOR
In another year he'd go No. 1 overall. Griffin was a dynamic personality and playmaker who lifted Baylor to new heights. The Redskins are hoping he can revive their flagging franchise. Eagles fans could be seeing him for years.
RYAN TANNEHILL, TEXAS A&M
Here is where the debate begins. Some see the athletic former wide receiver as a top-flight QB in time. Others see a limited resumé and late-first-round talent whose stock has been pushed up because teams are desperate for quarterbacks. He could go in the top 10, or he could slide to late in the round.
BRANDON WEEDEN, OKLAHOMA STATE
He has the size and arm strength of a prototypical pocket passer and had two strong college seasons. But Weeden is already 28, pushing down his stock, and isn't very good when he has to move. He'd go higher if he was younger. Anyone who wants him will want to start him quickly while he is still in his prime.
KIRK COUSINS, MICHIGAN STATE
Coaches love his intangibles. He was a three-year starter and captain. But his arm strength is a big negative, and he struggles under pressure. He is likely a developmental prospect for whoever takes him.
NICK FOLES, ARIZONA
He has size and arm strength. But scouts question his mechanics - an issue the Eagles might believe they can fix - and nearly everyone has panned his mobility, which might be an even bigger concern. Andy Reid likes quarterbacks who can move.
BROCK OSWEILER, ARIZONA STATE
At 6-feet-7, Osweiler has size to spare and a powerful arm. But he's been knocked for poor fundamentals, reads, and decision-making. He'll need time to develop.
RUSSELL WILSON, WISCONSIN
Athletic, elusive, and accomplished as a passer, the four-year starter might be slated to go much higher if he wasn't 5-11. That's a big negative to some teams, though Reid didn't have a problem putting his faith in the similarly sized Michael Vick. Wilson has the mobility the Eagles crave.
