Brady Quinn couldn't lead Notre Dame to victory Saturday night against USC, however it won't effect his draft stock. It's hard to imagine Quinn not being selected as the number one overall pick in the 2007 NFL draft. NFL teams value QBs more than any other position and Quinn is a prototypical NFL QB prospect. He has great size at 6'4 - 231, very good arm strength, can make all the throws on the field and his accuracy has continued to improve every year. On top of that he's spent the last two seasons in Charlie Weis' pro-style offense.

Jeff Samardzija in Kiper's Top 5
Kiper just updated his big board and Notre Dame's Jeff Samardzija moved into the top 5. While this is surprising, one has to remember that Kiper's board only includes seniors and Samardzija will fall once the top juniors declare. If they declare, expect the following junior receivers to be rated higher then Samardzija: Calvin Johnson, Georgia Tech, Dwayne Jarrett, USC, Ted Ginn Jr, Ohio St.
