    A very strong case could be made for Kliff Kingsburry. He has the best stats of any college QB. This isn't like David Klinger putting up insane numbers in a nothing conference. Kingsburry threw for 4500 yards and 42 tds playing in the big 12. Oh yeah he also played Ohio St in the beginnig of the season. I still think Larry Johnson is hands down the winner, but Kingsburry should probably be there.

    I think to much is put on the teams record. There is no sport that revolves around the team more than Football, but yet the Heisman winner has to be in the top 10 to have a chance. If Penn St wins 2 of the 3 games it lost this season there wouldn't even be a debate. The 9th player who rushed for 2000 yards in college football on a BCS team would run away with the award.

    Gesser was very good and I'm a Pac 10 guy, but I'd definitely have to give the "overlooked" honor to Leftwich. The guy is incredible and should be right there with Palmer as one of the first guys taken in the draft.

    Here's another question for you all: Which senior QB's (since we're not sure about several underclassmen) do you all think will be taken in the first round? Also, since Banks is projected to go in the 2nd or 3rd round, do any of you think the 'Fins should take a look at picking him up?

    Ragone and Kingsburry will rocket up the boards whent he senior bowls, and combines start due to their size and arm strength. The same can be said for Chris Simms since he is the ultimate combine QB. Guys like Banks, Wallace, and Marquell Blackwell(the best qb no one has heard of) will draw attention in the senior bowls, but it will fade at the combine due to size and arm. Get ready for big name QBs like Dorsey and Gesser to fall of the radar and in to a 2nd day draft board.

    Right now I see Palmer, Leftwitch, Kingsburry, Ragone, and Simms all getting first round grades, but it will depend on how many teams decide to take a QB even though it may not be their biggest need. Of course this list will get alot longer if some Jrs decide to come out. Phillip Rivers, Eli Manning, and Grossman could really put this class over the top. Then the hefty lefty Lorenzen could be a wild card. I am very curious to see if a team would take a chance on him early dispite his weight.

    I am also very curious to see what QB that fits in to Banks category will have great sucsess in the NFL. I really think the team that takes a shot in the 2nd or 3rd round will find a Gannon type after a few years of sitting in Banks, Blackwell, or Wallace.

    LOL, did you say arm strength & Kingsbury in the same sentence. That is the one reason why he won't sky rocket at the combine. Why are his numbers as high as they are? Because they run the same type of offense as Oakland. They dont run the ball.

    Ragone is already a projected first rounder & has been all year.

    At the moment the only sure first rounders are Palmer, Leftwich, & Ragone. I suspect Simms will be impressing everyone at the combine, not Kingsbury, & subsequently put himself into the lower first round. After that Wallace & Kingsbury will land somewhere in between the late second & early fourth, & Dorsey right after them. Though Gesser was a very good college QB, I think his size limitations will unfortunately make him a 2nd day pick.


    <<Also, since Banks is projected to go in the 2nd or 3rd round>>

    LOL, yeah right. Banks(see Gesser comments) is a 2nd day pick.


    <<Marquell Blackwell(the best qb no one has heard of)>>

    I have to disagree, the best QB nobody has heard of is Sophomore Ben Roethlisberger of Miami(OH). This kid is gonna be something special & a for sure first rounder in 04 or 05.

    Ragone has fallen off big time due to the horrible season his team has had. Early reports for this class have him falling to the 2nd even 3rd round. I agre he will make up the ground, but he is not a sure fire 1st rounder yet.

    Say what you will about Kingsburry, but he is 6'4'' 230lb QB that put up amazing numbers playing one of the hardest schedules in college football. 400 yards and 6tds against Texas will earn him a lot of attention at the combine in Indy.

    How do you have Banks falling so far from grace due to his size, yet you have the much smaller Wallace in the 2nd round?

    Excuse me Blackwell is the best senior QB no one has heard of. The kid from Miami is a sophmore, so he has a couple years to make some noise.

    I dont know what you're reading, but 3rd round is way wrong. Internet site rankings dont mean much, just supply information, but the one person's whose rankings to count are Kiper's, who currently has Ragone in the top 20. With Carolina, Cincy, Pitt, Chicago, & Arizona all needing QBs Ragone will go in round 1. You did say one thing right though, he hasn't played that great because of his team. It's not him. Even in last night's game vs Marshall he was running for his life.

    <<How do you have Banks falling so far from grace due to his size, yet you have the much smaller Wallace in the 2nd round?>>

    Because Banks is a one year wonder ala Akili Smith. Banks doesn't have nearly the arm, speed, & agility as Wallace. That being said I still dont think either one will be any good in the pros.


    <<Excuse me Blackwell is the best senior QB no one has heard of. The kid from Miami is a sophmore, so he has a couple years to make some noise.>>

    Blackwell falls in the same category as Banks & Wallace, plus he put up horrible numbers this year when he played good teams(Okla & Ark).

    <<Say what you will about Kingsburry, but he is 6'4'' 230lb QB that put up amazing numbers playing one of the hardest schedules in college football. 400 yards and 6tds against Texas will earn him a lot of attention at the combine in Indy.>>

    Did you not watch game, or any game that Kingsbury played this year? Dink & dunk passes all game with one deep completion out of 60 passes vs Texas. He sure didnt do that well the following week vs Oklahoma or earlier in the year vs Colorado.

    Blackwell didn't put up great numbers against Oak and Ark, but his teemates didn't deserve to be on the same feild as those teams. He Threw 2000+ yards and 18 tds to only 3 ints. Not bad for a team that is only in their 2nd year of D1. Oh yeah not to mention he lead USF to a 9-2 record in their 2nd season. I know he is in the same catergory as the other 2. I said it first, but you know at least 1 will make an impact in a few years.

    Kingsburry had 2 great games against powerhouses, and 2 bad games against powerhouses. That is one more good game against a very good team than Palmer had. The only impressive game he played against a ranked opponet was Notre Dame, but again Notre Dame almost lost to 2-9 navy 2 weeks prior. Dink and Dunk who fing cares. The defense will game plan to the offense you play. Every one knew what he was going to do, but couldn't stop him. The Dolphins showed last week how easy you can stop a dink and dunk team.

    3 teams with defenses in the top 15 & he averaged 280 yards, 7 TDs total, 3 picks, & a comp% of 55%, not overly impressive, but not horrible given the competition. Kansas State is what really damaged his #s, but they damaged a lot of people's #s, afterall they are #1.

    Carson vs Iowa should be a good game for him to showcase his talent on national tv again.
