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

2x champion and he ran Cam Newton out of Gainesville. Plus, Heisman.

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 Johnny Manziel Johnny Manziel Jonathan Paul Manziel is an American professional Canadian football quarterback for the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League. He was drafted by the NFL's Cleveland Browns with the 22nd overall pick of the 2014 NFL Draft. Towards the end of the 2015 season, Manziel endured numerous scandals, ...read more.

Then he became one of the worst quarterbacks in NFL history. - PackFan2005

4 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 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...

6 Baker Mayfield Baker Mayfield

2 best passer efficiency seasons of all time. Second most efficient career passer ever only after Sam Bradford. Take away his walk-on year at Tech and he's the GOAT no doubt

7 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!

O.K. every Ohiho State fan should know this Ohiho State got real lucky that 2 of our starting receivers were hurt and our starting tightend was hurt.

8 Matt Leinart

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

9 Case Keenum Case Keenum Casey Austin "Case" Keenum is an American football quarterback for the Denver Broncos of the National Football League.
10 Peyton Manning Peyton Manning Peyton Williams Manning is a former American football quarterback who played 18 seasons in the National Football League for the Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos.

The Contenders

11 Deshaun Watson Deshaun Watson

One of the best college quarterbacks in
CFB history

clutch

Should have won 2 heismans

12 Drew Brees
13 Danny Wuerffel

GOAT!

14 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

15 Tommie Frazier

3 National Championship game MVP'S. Back to back national championships. The team was 36 - 1 his last 3 years. The 94 Orange bowl loss would have been 3 straight National Championships if replay had been used back then. The calmest, coolest customer under pressure. Rarely ever made a mistake. A true field general. Just ask Ray Lewis and Warren Sapp.

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.

Any list of greatest college quarterbacks that don't have Frazier in the top 3 is just a popularity contest in disguise.

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.

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

20 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.

21 Charlie Ward

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