Top draft QBs

Blake Bortles

Central Florida: 6-5, 232. Classic pocket passer. Surprising agility for his size. Raw, but could have big upside. Pat Kirwan of CBS Sports has Bortles going No. 1. ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr. and Matt Smith of nfl.com have the Vikings taking him at No. 8.

Teddy Bridgewater

Louisville: 6-2, 214. Considered a rhythm passer with high football intelligence. Not an overpowering arm. Peter Schrager of Fox Sports has him going No. 1

Derek Carr

Fresno State: 6-2, 214. Strong arm, solid pocket presence. Schrager has the Vikings taking Carr at No. 8.

A.J. McCarron

Alabama: 6-3¼, 220. Strong game manager on a great team in college. Arm strength is questionable. NFL Network’s Mike Mayock says he’s a second- or third-round choice.

Johnny Manziel

Texas A&M: 5-11¾, 207. Very innovative, but unorthodox. Creative on the move, but do his skills translate to the NFL? Rated No. 1 overall by Kiper and Don Banks of Sports Illustrated.
