Best College Quarterbacks of All Time

Alpha101

The Top Ten

1 Tim Tebow Tim Tebow Timothy Richard Tebow is an American professional baseball outfielder in the New York Mets organization and a former professional American football player in the National Football League.

This is a list of the best college quarterbacks of all-time, tannehill is not one of the best quarterbacks of all time. Even so, Tim Tebow is one if not the most accomplished college football players of all time.

Without a doubt, the best College QB ever!

Greatest Florida gator player

2 Cam Newton Cam Newton Cameron Jerrell Newton is an American football quarterback for the Carolina Panthers of the National Football League.

Good yes - but I do not know if I can buy into number 1.

The best I've ever seen in my lifetime.

Aurborn Qb was probably the best ever! He's probably almost the only reason I watch the Panthers! Gonna go deep in the playoffs, then loose right before the superbowl! The Packers and Steelers are going, or the Saints and Colts are going! I hope it's the second one! I love Drew Brees and I love Andrew Luck! - Alpha101

3 Andrew Luck Andrew Luck Andrew Austen Luck is an American football quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts of the National Football League.

This guy is awesome! Definitely gonna make the playoffs! Probably even the superbowl! - Alpha101

Probably about right for Luck - maybe a bit lower.

5 Marcus Mariota Marcus Mariota Marcus Ardel Tafuna Taulauniu Mariota is an American football quarterback for the Tennessee Titans of the National Football League.

If you replaced any of the above qb's with Mariota he outproduces them easily. He would've won a natty if he had been targeting his top 4 wide receivers instead of the 5th string guys who werent even supposed to play until the year after he left. Was a clutch qb and rarely turned the ball over. First ever to have that kind of a touchdown to interception ratio, even when considering all turnovers he didn't even have 10 turnovers his final year and had over 60 total tds. Should be at least top 3 seeing as he outplayed Andrew Luck every time they matched up in college.

Marriott is awesome favorite about ever let's hope it's #1 pick for fly in hawiin

How can Mariota not be first! He almost won the national championship, and he was the first Heisman winner at U of O!

6 Vince Young Vince Young Vincent Paul Young, Jr. is a former American football quarterback who played in the National Football League for six seasons.

Vince was good - no doubt - but this list has to have Mariotta and the other guy from Baylor named Petty - come on man...

7 Robert Griffin III Robert Griffin III Robert Lee Griffin III, nicknamed RG3, is an American football quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens of the National Football League.

He's gonna be the best rookie this season! I love this guy! The Redskins are my 4th favorite team so him playing for them is a dream come true! Gonna make it close to the playoffs! - Alpha101

Griffin is a bit low at 5 in my estimation

He's really good! He should be #1 I don't agree with this list but watching rg3 play is amazing

8 Joe Montana Joe Montana Joseph Clifford "Joe" Montana, Jr., nicknamed Joe Cool and The Comeback Kid, is a retired American football quarterback. V 1 Comment
9 Jameis Winston Jameis Winston Jameis L. Winston is an American football quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers of the National Football League.

Jameis should be numer one

The best EVER!

10 Michael Vick Michael Vick Michael Dwayne Vick is an American football quarterback who is a free agent. He has previously played for the Atlanta Falcons, Philadelphia Eagles, New York Jets and Pittsburgh Steelers.

11 Graham Harrell

He threw 130 td passes. ,how can he not be higher on this list

12 Peyton Manning Peyton Manning Peyton Williams Manning is a former American football quarterback who played 18 seasons in the National Football League.
13 Charlie Ward

There were a couple better at TTU, and I do not believe he is even in Sam Bradford's area code...

14 Bryce Petty
15 Matt Barkley

He's a pretty good QB! Probably when he's done with college, will be in the top 3 picks in the draft! Probably 2nd because some of the college players these days are really good! - Alpha101

He should be no where near this list.

16 Steve Spurrier Steve Spurrier
17 Matt Leinart

37-2 as a starter Heisman winner. Won two national champs and played for a third. Has to be top 10

18 Dan Marino Dan Marino Daniel Constantine Marino Jr. is a former American football player who was a quarterback for the Miami Dolphins of the National Football League.
19 Ryan Tannehill Ryan Tannehill Ryan Timothy Tannehill III is an American football quarterback for the Miami Dolphins of the National Football League.

Love this guy! He's gonna bring the Dolphins close to the playoffs but then loose. - Alpha101

20 Tommie Frazier

Back to back national championships. A star on both squads. Also quarterbacked what is widely considered the best college football team to ever take the field 95 Cornhuskers, and was the driving force behind that offense.

Greatest winner and competitor of my generation. He has to be in the top 3 of all time. If not, this poll is a joke.

If you actually know anything about college football in the 90s, you'll know how BA this guy was. 33-3 as a starter, two national championships (it should have been three). You must be kidding me that David Green, Matthew Stafford, Blake Bortles, AJ McCarron, and like 90% of the other dudes on this list are on here and not Tommie Frazier.

Honestly, what is the purpose of playing football? If your goal is to win games, perform great on the biggest stage, and win championships, then nobody was better than Tommie Frazier. Frazier was a four-year starter, losing only 3 games. Two of his losses were during his freshman year, one of which in the Orange Bowl vs. #7 ranked FSU (he still won the MVP of the game). The third loss was in the Championship game to FSU during his sophomore year (again, he won the MVP award). Frazier didn't lose a single regular season game after his freshman year, and won consecutive undefeated National Championships in his final two-years. He won the MVP award in 4 major bowl games (3 Orange Bowl, 1 Fiesta Bowl), including three consecutive National Championship games.

If all you care about is throwing for a lot of yards, regardless of winning big games, go ahead choose someone else.
