            This isn't where I thought their stock was, but it's who I personally liked each.

            1. Jay Cutler
            Simply because he's had the highest ceiling of any QB I thought was ready to start from day one. I loved everything about him physically and thought that his ability to battle on an outmanned Vandy team was incredible.
            2. Matt Ryan
            again he's ready to start early and take command of that offense. I think he'll be a great leader for the Falcons one day and early on he'll contribute if the oline holds up, if not he'll contribute less.

            3. Vince Young
            While he has a very long way to go as a passer and he maybe dumb ass hell, but he is a guy you want with the ball in his hands if you're down late. He's still got to get a lot better in the pocket and make a decision quicker when he's scrambling.

            4. Brady Quinn
            I think there's a big drop off after those three for me because I think none of the rest of these guys will be able to get as much out of their teams unless there's a good fit and that gets messy, I.e. Leinart will probably succeed in Arizona just because he's in a situation where Kurt Warner is having success. Anyways next would probably be Brady Quinn, he's got accuracy issues and is inconsistent with his decision making and throws but if you get him to play within himself and take what the defense is giving him he'll become a very good distributer.

            5. JaMarcus Russell
            He's really more like 4b because he has the tools to be a great distributer but I think he's never going to be the guy that is able to make his teammates better. He was a little Lazy at LSU and lacked the killer instinct to drive his team to the next level.

            6. Alex Smith incredible tools, incredibly raw and just too far away from being able to start but if you keep him on the bench behind a solid vet and you'll strike gold. Pity the 49ers haven't given the time to adjust to the NFL, 4 OCs in 4 years and a horrible OL to boot.

            7. Joe Flacco
            Not incredible fond of any of the other guys cause i don't think there's any chance any of them become elite. Flacco though can as long as he can sit and gel with his team/system for a year. But he has the arm, the release the solid feet and experience leading a team to one day become an elite QB.

            8. Jason Cambell in the right situation can be very effective although I doubt he's ever able to be the one to carry his team to he next level, he seemed to content to just be a piece of the puZle at Auburn instead of the centerpiece of the puzzle.

            9. Aaron Rodgers
            Cal QB seemed like a Jeff Garcia level guy, meaning good enough to take a very good team to the playoffs, but not good enough to take a good team to a superbowl.

            10. Matt Leinart
            He's like Rodgers in book no chance to lead but a guy who can be a good piece on a powerhouse O. Luckily he landed in a great situation if he's gunna make it Arizona was the best fit for him.

                      It takes 5 years to assess drafts nevermind QB's. It is impossible to know which of these QB's will breakout, they are only in at most their 4th year(a year where a breakout is still very possible = Eli) or 3rd, or 2nd or just rookies.
                      And proud of it!!!

                          Jamarcus Russell *Pros: Size, mobility, arm strength, accuracy. Full package talent wise. Cons: Not sure he has that IT factor, never really dominated.*
                          Aaron Rodgers *Pros: Throwing motion, arm strength, accuracy, mobility. Cons: Height*
                          Jay Cutler *Pros: Size, arm strength, accuracy, mobility. Cons: IT factor*

                          Brady Quinn *Pros: Size, arm strength, leadership. Cons: Accuracy*
                          Matt Ryan *Pros: QB Intelligence, feel for the game, leadership. Cons: Strength/Accuracy underwhelming*

                          Alex Smith *Pros: Mobility, accuracy. Cons: Style of offense, deep throws*
                          Matt Leinart *Pros: Decent across the board. Cons: Arm strength and mobility*

                          Jason Campbell *Pros: Mobility Cons: Delivery and ability to pass while utilizing mobility*
                          Joe Flacco *Pros: Arm Strength Cons: Level of competition, style of offense and mobility*

                          Vince Young *Pros: Mobility Cons: Is not good throwing a football*

                          Campbell and Flacco weren't worth 1st round picks imo. I thought they were definitely better suited for round 2 or even early 3. Vince Young was just not a good QB prospect, imo. More of a second day "hope-we-can-turn-him-into-a-FB" sort of guy. Not a good passer at all. This was all gut feelings aside, otherwise the list would only be Rodgers, Cutler, Quinn. Only three I'd want on my team.

                          First category are my elite prospects, 2nd is great, 3rd is good, 4th is decent, and 5th is bad. Quinn was close to being elite but I couldn't bring myself to name someone with serious accuracy issues amongst elite QB prospects.

                          And for kicks.. how I actually think they'll rank as players now that they've all been drafted.
                          1. Rodgers *Groomed slowly, great talent around him*
                          2. Brady Quinn *Integrated slowly, great offensive talent*
                          3. Jay Cutler *Still needs to improve but decent so far*
                          4. Vince Young *Fits what they're trying to do, still a bad passer*
                          5. All the rest. Flops.
