    2014-2015 QB Prospects

    We all know it and might as well face it. We are stuck with Mark Sanchez for 2013 and the 2013 QB class is terrible anyway. Fortunately, it is great for the trenches on both sides, so hopefully we can get some help protecting the guy we will hopefully draft in 2014, but it looks like 2015 will have the most talent.

    Here are the potential prospects, in no order:

    Johnny Manziel (redshirt freshman)
    -he'd probably have to win the heisman this year to come out next year as a redshirt sophmore

    Aaron Murray

    Tyler Bray

    A.J. McCarron

    Jeff Driskel (currently a soph)

    Teddy Bridgewater (currently a soph)

    Kevin Hogan (redshirt freshman)

    Marcus Mariota (redshirt freshman)

    Brett Hundley (redshirt freshman)

    Hogan, Mariota, and Hundley probably won't come out until 2015 or 2016, but you never know.

    My personal favorties are Manziel and Hogan. We might have to wait until 2016 and do a RG3 like trade, but I don't want to force the pick like we did with Sanchez.

    Let me know if I missed anyone that should be considered, but I figured these guys are 1st round prospects when they come out.

    Lots of stuff can happen - maybe not so much for next year, but who knows what 2014 will bring, and how QBs "fortunes" will rise and fall - but I truly appreciate your research, and information.

    I saw that Johnny "Football" Manziel beat Alabama and just loved his moxie, and skills.

    Wait a minute - he's only 6'1" so "He can't be a star in the NFL." - which I think is nonsense, although being 6'5" 245 lbs - doesn't hurt.

    The 1st time we ever drafted "the great QB," was also our last - 1965 (even though his stats, by today's standards, are pretty weak).

    Did you know that Joe Namath was the only Jet to be included in "The Sporting New's" list of the 100 Greatest Football Players, published in1999 - he was 96th.

    GO JETS!!!

    Yes, he is my 96th favorite JET, an absolute disgrace to JET Nation today. He is such a great JET that he feels the need to repeatedly throw his beloved team under the bus.

    I get it was a different day and age back then, but he seemed to never apply himself, and rid raw talent. He wasnt even ALL that good...IMO Unitas and others are that era were far more talented.

    Way back in the stands, you can see my Wife holding my son on the ledge at his first Green and White scrimmage...circa 2013...aka "The Transformation" year into greatness! That's right Emryk...you saw the beginning stages of JETS Greatness first hand!

    You've got it part right. Joe Namath probably didn't put in the time and effort to be his best, but Bear Bryant called Namath "the best athlete I've ever seen."

    It is such a shame that his knees were ruined. He played on such bad wheels and in so much pain, it is amazing that he played for 13 years. He had both knees replaced with prosthetics at the age of 49, and he had put it off for years, and luckily, the technology really got better.

    Just about every thing I've seen and read says that Joe Namath had great mechanics, a strong accurate arm with, perhaps, the quickest release ever. Don Shula said Namath had, "the best arm I've ever seen." He had such a good arm that he thought he could fit the ball anywhere, and that's why he had so many INTs.

    If you saw him up close, or even in the stands, you would marvel at how he could throw the football. I've told my story about meeting Joe Namath in 1968, I was 10. I got to see him beat the Dolphins 37-15 (12/01/68) from the sidelines, and in the stands when we beat the Bengals 27-14 (12/08/68). He threw the ball effortlessly, and beautifully.

    John Unitas is an all-time great, but he had to work for everything he got. He was not a gifted athlete like Namath, but he was a great QB.

    The 2 QBs of that era that came close to Namath were John Hadl and Daryle Lamonica.

    Many people scoff at Namath because his completion % was 50.1. This must be compared to QBs of his era - Hadl had a career completion% of 50.4 and Lamonica was 49.5. Johnny Unitas was one of the best at 54.6%.

    Anyway, there was no QB of his era that was "far more talented," than Joe Namath!

    GO JETS!!!

    Unless Tyler Bray gets a new head on his shoulders, this class will suck also.

    I don't know.

    We are talking about people who might be coming out of college in 2 years and whether we'd want them, and ignoring Greg McElroy who is already signed and on the squad.

    I'd want to see what the lad can do before I'd even think about drafting a QB.

    If he isnt good enough to even get a chance then cut the guy and bring in a veteran on a cheap salary who can at least contribute something in terms of knowledge and experience.

    Bray will probably come out this year since Tennessee is in disarray, where he'll compete with Geno Smith for the top QB pick. This year's class is actually pretty solid. It's much too early to know how the class in 2014, much less 2015, will look.

    Bray is a flaming inaccurate douchecanoe. His intangibles are off-the-charts terrible.

    It's a pity too because he has the most arm talent in the draft.

    Your list is crazy. Aaron Murray is the most NFL ready QB out of those few. I think Mariota is second and Manziel 3rd. Manziel is a bit too small to be a great NFL QB. Who knows though. I think Manziel and Mariota are going to come out in 2 years, Murray possibly this year.

    I said that they were in no particular ranking or order.....I guess I shouldn't have put numbers.

    Also, asked people to suggest other guys as well.
