Is 2012 a QB draft class worth waiting for?

Published on July 12, 2011 by     Tacoma News Tribune (Feed)

NFLDraftScout.com takes a closer look at the 2012 quarterback draft class, and likes what he sees.

That’s good news for the Seattle Seahawks, considering they could be in the market for a quarterback next year, depending on what happens this season.

Rang believes Stanford’s Andrew Luck, Matt Barkley of USC and Oklahoma’s Landry Jones have the talent to be possible franchise quarterbacks available in next year’s draft, with Luck the best of the three.

Rang: “For all of the upside Newton, Jake Locker, Blaine Gabbert and Christian Ponder possess, no one should rush to compare the 2011 class to the 1983 group topped by John Elway, Dan Marino and Jim Kelly.

“The perception surrounding the 2012 QB class is vastly different. Three relative sure things in underclassmen Andrew Luck, Matt Barkley and Landry Jones could be available and at this point appear to be first-round quality prospects.

“NFL scouts aren’t as quick to label the trio a can’t-miss crew, however. Evaluators made it apparent that perception doesn’t necessarily match reality.

“All three are legitimate prospects to watch and with at least two more years of eligibility remaining, none is a finished product. This isn’t a case of a trio of “sure things.”

“In reality, the 2012 draft could again be The Andrew Luck Lottery — assuming he leaves school after this, his redshirt junior season.”
