1.) JOHNNY MANZIEL, Texas A&M Bottom Line:*

2.) BLAKE BORTLES, Central Florida Bottom Line:

4.) DEREK CARR, Fresno State Bottom Line:

Athletic, tough, instinctive, strong-armed, highly competitive quarterback who will impress in workouts, interviews and on the board, and improved his draft standing with those skills in the postseason…more.
