Just about everyone agrees the top two QB prospects in the 2007 NFL draft are Jamarcus Russell
and Brady Quinn
, but who is number three?
Opinons are all over the map. Ask just about any scout or draft expert and you're likely to receive a different anwer.Drew Stanton
seems to have the best chance right now of being the third QB taken. Stanton has all of the skills you dream of when you think of a quarterback. He has good size, a good arm, but is also a very good athlete. The biggest problem with Stanton is his consistency.Kevin Kolb
also receives some talk at number three. Kolb has all the skills to develop into a quality NFL quarterback, but will need to adjust to an NFL playbook as he didn't play in a pro-style offense at Houston.Trent Edwards
is the sleeper candidate right now. He has flown under the radar because Stanford has been so bad, but he has the skills and the toughness to project to the next level. He is a talented pocket passer, has good size, and shows the ability to stand in the pocket and deliver the football with accuracy.Troy Smith
has seen his stock really fall since his awful BCS showing and sub-par Senior Bowl. Some still consider him the 3rd best QB, but those who do are becoming scarce.
Other names mentioned at number three are John Beck, BYU and Matt Moore, Oregon State.
