Senior Bowl - Ranking The QBs

Derek Carr (Fresno State) is the top ranked Senior Bowl quarterback. How do the other five stack up?

1) Derek Carr (Fresno State)
I thought Carr was clearly the top quarterback in the two days of practice that I saw for either team. He spins the ball so well and can make all the throws. Carr has above average arm strength and can throw with good touch. He shows good anticipation and the ability to make those rhythm passes. He checked in at 6-2 ¼, 215-pounds, 9 1/8 hand size, 31 ¼ arm length, and 75 1/8 wing span.

2) David Fales (San Jose State)
Fales came out this week and practiced despite being sick on Monday and Tuesday. He got better as the week progressed. Fales is a pretty accurate passer with good fundamentals. He's not the biggest guy out there but he's big enough. He has good enough arm strength to get by with all the throws needed. I like his footwork. He can move around a little bit but I wouldn't describe him as accurate.He checked in at 6-1 3/10, 220 pounds, 9 ¼ hand size, 31 1/8 arm length, and 75 ½ wing span.

3) Jimmy Garoppolo (Eastern Illinois)
Garoppolo looked good last week at the East /West Shrine. This week he was more up and down. Of all the quarterbacks in Mobile he has the quickest release. I also love the fact of how quickly Garoppolo will make a decision. He just gets it out of his hands fast. He has a fairly strong arm and throws it well to the outside. I thought he struggled throwing down the seam and on those middle and intermediate routes. He checked in at 6-2 2/10, 219-pounds, 9 hand size, 30 ¼ arm length, and 75 ¼ wing span.

4) Tajh Boyd (Clemson)
Boyd threw the ball better on Wednesday than Tuesday. His best throw of the day occurred during 11 on 11 when he hit Kain Colter (Northwestern) on a deep go route, showing great touch. Boyd has struggled with timing and rhythm with his North teammates. He seemed late on throws in coverage. He does posses a good arm but just didn't throw with much consistency this week. He checked in at 6-0 ¾, 222-pounds, 9 3/8 hand size, 30 ½ arm length and 75 ½ wing span.

5) Logan Thomas (Virginia Tech)
Thomas looks like Terrelle Pryor with a better arm. But he was inconsistent and erratic throwing the football. While he does have a very good arm, he didn't show any anticipation or rhythm with his wide receivers. He was late on his passes, which narrows the window, making throws more difficult. He's a big athlete with a big arm who needs time to develop.He checked in at 6-5 6/10, 250-pounds, 10 ¾ hand size, 33 arm length, and 79 ¾ wing span.

6) Stephen Morris (Miami)
Morris struggled all week. He was more erratic than anything. Morris was often high on his passes and didn't throw with any anticipation and rhythm with his wide receivers, much like Thomas. Morris did show above average arm strength but that won't mean much if he's not accurate. Much of his accuracy issues stem from inconsistent fundamentals. He checked in at 6-1 6/10, 208-pounds, 10 1/8 hand size, 31 7/8 arm length, and 77 ½ wing span.
