Additional information is needed before teams make any final decisions. More film must be studied, official measurements must be taken, background checks must be completed and medical/psychological tests must be administered. For now, though, here is my ranking of the top 15 quarterbacks, assuming all eligible underclassmen are available (underclassmen denoted by an asterisk): 1. Sam Bradford*, Oklahoma

2. Mark Sanchez*, USC
3. Matthew Stafford*, Georgia
4. Nate Davis*, Ball State
5. Josh Freeman*, Kansas State

7. Graham Harrell, Texas Tech
