Parcells QB formula is telling

With respect to the supposed top quarterback prospects in this year’s class the Bills Parcells formula on whether to draft one presents an interesting perspective on that lot of talent.

Parcells had seven specific criteria as to whether or not his team would draft a quarterback prospect.

They had to be (1) a 3-year starter, (2) a senior in college, (3) graduate, (4) have 30 starts, (5) 23 wins, (6) 2-to-1 TD to INT ratio and (7) completion pct. of 60% or better. was diligent enough to examine how each of the top 10 quarterbacks in this year’s class measure up, including Nevada’s Colin Kaepernick, who is profiled on the home page of today (Tuesday).

The results might surprise you, though I think the college graduate and being a senior requirements might be a bit outdated knowing how many prospects forgo their senior seasons these days. Everything else though I believe has merit in Parcells’ list of criteria.
