Week 1 of the college football season is in the books. I had intended to put together a post of the college quarterbacks I’m watching this year as NFL prospects. I did this last year and saw a lot of search interest in that poorly titled piece. Getting this piece out wasn’t near the top of the priority list, then the new semester started, I started working on a projection model for NFL production, and didn’t get around to putting out this piece until today. Sadly, this means I didn’t strike while the iron was hot in one specific case. I’ll take this as a lesson in timely publication.

Without further ado, the quarterbacks I’m watching for the 2014 NCAA season

Rakeem Cato, Marshall

Cato is still my leader in the clubhouse for NFL quarterback prospects. I actually thought he declared for the draft last year. If he had, he would have been my #3 quarterback prospect then. Things are looking good for him and I’m excited to see what he’s got during his senior season.

Brent Hundley, UCLA

The first player on our list that many scouts will likely agree on. He’s currently second on my list of prospects, but had a really poor game by his standards last weekend. I’ll be watching this one to see which way it goes. Keep watching the season numbers page for more updates.

Shane Carden, East Carolina

Here’s someone you probably haven’t heard of. I’ve said it before, but one of the best things about using numbers to scout prospects is the ability to find gems that don’t get a large amount of T.V. time.  And the numbers say Carden definitely is worth a long look from professional scouts. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by what you see.

Sean Mannion, Oregon State

Mannion apparently really impressed some people over the summer at a Manning passing academy. I’m glad to hear it because I’ve been watching him with some interest since the beginning of last season. Hopefully he can continue the trend and keep trending up. I’ll be excited to see where he ends up.

Brandon Doughty, Western Kentucky

Yeah yeah, I know. I’m four days late and six touchdowns short on calling this one. Lesson learned, I suppose. I should probably also note that with last weekend’s performance Doughty launched himself from fifth to third on this list. Keep watching this guy.

So there you have it. My quick list of who I’m watching this season. As always, season numbers are available on the top ribbon.
