NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock broke down how he views some of the top quarterbacks in this year’s draft class.
Mayock in his top 5 by position ranks Louisville’s Teddy Bridgewater as his top QB followed by Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel and UCF’s Blake Bortles. Here’s his breakdown of the signal callers.
“I do think that [Teddy[ Bridgewater, [Johnny] Manziel and [Blake] Bortles are locked in as, quote, the three top quarterbacks,” said Mayock. “I think Derek Carr from Fresno is somebody that people are trying to learn more about, and there’s some interesting wild cards this year, I think at request also.
“I think AJ McCarron is solid but he’s a second or third round quarterback. I think Carr will fit into the end of the first round. Jimmy Garoppolo has really helped himself at east west in the Senior Bowl and two kids got hurt later in the year, Aaron Murray from Georgia and Zach Mettenberger from LSU, I think depending on how their rehab goes could be third or fourth round guys that are developmental players.
“And Logan Thomas, two years ago when I saw him play Michigan in a Bowl game I thought he would be the first pick of the entire draft, two years later, and since then, he’s got two or three good tapes and the rest are really bad tapes. But he’s still 6 5, big, beautiful body, can throw the ball and the other kind of wild card I would say is Tom Savage that nobody talks about from University of Pittsburgh. He’s a big, strong kid that can throw also.
