Rank Name School Yr

Comments: Terrific passer picture perfect for the WCO
3 Andrew Walter Arizona State 5Sr

4 David Greene Georgia 5Sr

5 Dan Orlovsky Connecticut 5Sr
Comments: Good arm and the head to start in the NFL.
6 Kyle Orton Purdue 4Sr

7 Jason White Oklahoma 6Sr

8 Charlie Fry Akron 5Sr
Comments: Physically very good but must improve the details of his position and overall accuracy.
9 Jason Campbell Auburn 5Sr
Comments: Terrific athlete with excellent size/speed numbers finally turning the corner.

Comments: A great athlete with a big arm and terrific feet. Tries to do too much at times and must become a "passer" rather then just a "thrower".
11 Charlie Whitehurst Clemson 4Jr
Comments: A lot of upside but must learn to become a patient pocket passer.
