2013 NFL Draft Preview: Quarterbacks

Posted Mar 4, 2013

A look at some of the top quarterback prospects leading up to the 2013 NFL Draft.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- In the weeks leading up to the 2013 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 two of them further -- Southern Cal's Matt Barkley and Syracuse's Ryan Nassib.

TOP PROSPECTS AT THE POSITION:

MATT BARKLEY
• POSITION: Quarterback
• COLLEGE: USC
• HEIGHT: 6'2"
• WEIGHT: 227
• CAREER STATS: 12,327 passing yards, 116 passing TDs
• COMBINE: DID NOT PARTICIPATE
On whether he has something to prove:
"It seems right now that I’m kind of working my way up as opposed to already being on the top, which is a position – I’ve been in both cases before. There’s always something to prove, and I’m out to prove something."
Player
MIKE GLENNON
Player • POSITION: Quarterback
• COLLEGE: N.C. State
• HEIGHT: 6'7"
• WEIGHT: 225
• CAREER STATS: 7,411 passing yards, 31 passing TDs
• COMBINE: 4.94 40-yd. dash; 26.5 in. vert. jump; 102.0 in. broad jump
On his mobility:
"I feel like I move better than most people think for being a big guy. You kind of get labeled as a guy who can’t move his feet just because of my height. But I think feel like I can move around enough to make a guy miss and throw the ball downfield."
LANDRY JONES
• POSITION: Quarterback
• COLLEGE: Oklahoma
• HEIGHT: 6'4"
• WEIGHT: 225
• CAREER STATS: 16,646 passing yards, 123 passing TDs
• COMBINE: 5.11 40-yd. dash; 31.0 in. vert. jump; 115.0 in. broad jump
On a guessing game when QBs will be taken this year:
"It’s definitely a wide-open year. There’s a lot of guys with a lot of talent. I think the further we get into this process, there’s gonna be a guy that’s gonna be coming up and there’s going to be somebody that puts himself ahead. And I think it’s the guy who’s going to work the hardest and the guy who wants it more."
Player
RYAN NASSIB
Player • POSITION: Quarterback
• COLLEGE: Syracuse
• HEIGHT: 6'2"
• WEIGHT: 227
• CAREER STATS: 9,190 passing yards, 70 passing TDs
• COMBINE: 5.06 40-yd. dash; 28.5 in. vert. jump; 105.0 in. broad jump
On occasionally running the read-option in college:
"I think any kind of system, read-option, I’ll do OK. I’m not going to pull a ball down and run for 60 like some other guys might be able to, but one thing with the experience we had running the read zone, you just make smart decisions. You can add different things onto that read zone. Maybe I don’t have to run. Maybe I can throw more instead of having to run if that’s what the read says. If that’s what the team that drafts me asks of me, I’m going to do whatever I can to make sure I get the job done."
GENO SMITH
• POSITION: Quarterback
• COLLEGE: West Virginia
• HEIGHT: 6'2"
• WEIGHT: 218
• CAREER STATS: 11,662 passing yards, 98 passing TDs
• COMBINE: 4.59 40-yd. dash; 33.5 in. vert. jump; 124.0 in. broad jump
On whether there's pressure likely being the first QB taken:
“I don't feel any pressure. I'm totally confident in my abilities. I'm not cocky or trying to say I'm this all-world player right now because I have many areas where I need to grow. But I do feel like I have a great, tremendous skill set and that I have an opportunity to showcase that. And it's something I look forward to.”
Player
TYLER WILSON
Player • POSITION: Quarterback
• COLLEGE: Arkansas
• HEIGHT: 6'2"
• WEIGHT: 215
• CAREER STATS: 7,765 passing yards, 52 passing TDs
• COMBINE: 4.95 40-yd. dash; 28.5 in. vert. jump; 112.0 in. broad jump
On what he will bring to the NFL:
"I’ve always said a natural ability to throw the football. I can throw it from a number of angles, while under pressure, and I can step in and rip it when we have an open spot. And the ability to communicate with guys, and a natural understanding of the game, because I was put in a heavy pressure situation a lot in college, having to deal with the line of scrimmage. So those three aspects put me in a spot where I think I can be successful."
