2012 NFL Draft Preview: Quarterbacks

Posted Apr 16, 2012

A look at some of the top quarterback prospects leading up to the 2012 NFL Draft.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- In the weeks leading up to the 2012 NFL Draft, DenverBroncos.com is taking a look at the draft prospects position-by-position.

We will devote a week to each group, looking back at some of the Broncos' previous picks at the position and showcasing some of the top prospects through top stories, blogs and Broncos TV videos.

This week: quarterbacks.

Below you will find six of the top prospects at the quarterback positions. Later in the week, we will profile another player to keep an eye on -- Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden.


• POSITION: Quarterback
• COLLEGE: Michigan State
• HEIGHT: 6'3"
• WEIGHT: 214
On what it takes to succeed in the NFL:
"When I look at the quarterbacks who have success year in and year out, I see quarterbacks who are great leaders, very accurate and are great decision-makers."
Player • POSITION: Quarterback
• COLLEGE: Baylor
• HEIGHT: 6'2"
• WEIGHT: 223
On hoping to be the top overall selection:
"As competitors, you both want to be the best. Whether I go No. 1 or not, it’s not going to change who I am, it’s not going to change my confidence. But I’d be a fool to say I don’t want to go No. 1... We all want to be the best so I’m not going to sit here and say I don’t want to go No. 1."
• POSITION: Quarterback
• COLLEGE: Stanford
• HEIGHT: 6'4"
• WEIGHT: 234
On what he learned by staying at Stanford instead of declaring early last year:
"First of all, I had fun with it, which was a big deal for me. I learned a lot about football. I don't think I'd be as prepared as I am now for what may come next, just the Xs and the Ox. It never hurts to get more experience under your belt."
Player • POSITION: Quarterback
• COLLEGE: Arizona State
• HEIGHT: 6'7"
• WEIGHT: 242
On whether people make assumptions about his athletic ability due to his height:
"Without a doubt. But that’s been my whole life and that’s OK. I understand. Shoot, If I saw a 6-7 kid playing quarterback I might think the same thing. But I think people’s opinions change when they see me in a workout, or they see me in a football game, or they see me on the practice field."
Player • POSITION: Quarterback
• COLLEGE: Texas A&M
• HEIGHT: 6'4"
• WEIGHT: 221
On whether he'd like to start as a rookie:
"Yeah, I think so. It kind of depends on the situation of whatever team drafts me. I’d be excited just to go in and compete with the guys that are already on the roster or any of the guys that they potentially bring in. I’m excited to go in to a team, compete and I want to be a starter. It’s a goal of mine."
• POSITION: Quarterback
• COLLEGE: Wisconsin
• HEIGHT: 5'11"
• WEIGHT: 204
On how playing baseball has helped him on the football field:
“I think the thing you learn from baseball, obviously you have so much failure in baseball, you have to realize that you have to focus on one thing at a time... You’re on pitch at a time, one play at a time, and it’s the exact same thing playing the quarterback position.”
