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.

I love me some Tim Tebow

Pass completions, rushing TDs, consistency, leadership

Insane for the jets should go to the AAF

Why isn't Tim Couch on here?

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 Baker Mayfield Baker Mayfield

This guy would win games that shouldn't have been won by the Sooners. Extremely fun to watch also

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

4 Matt Leinart

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

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 Case Keenum Case Keenum Casey Austin "Case" Keenum is an American football quarterback for the Denver Broncos of the National Football League.
7 Deshaun Watson Deshaun Watson

One of the best college quarterbacks in
CFB history

clutch

Should have won 2 heismans

8 Drew Brees
9 Tommie Frazier

THE BEST

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.

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.

The Contenders

11 Danny Wuerffel

GOAT!

12 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.

Nice list, I shoulda thought of it first >:( but I like that you predict Luck to do better than RG3, very wise. - Wopwop

13 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!

But he didn't win it, and so many other players have, so I don't think he deserves the top 20. - shadomatrix

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.

14 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.

Lol what kind of QB loses a heisman to some irrelevant defensive player? That's how much manning sucks at football - shadomatrix

15 Davey O'Brien
16 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

17 Colt Brennan
18 Kellen Moore

Best ever!

Best winning percentage of all time

19 Mason Rudolph

Da Man to be!

20 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

21 Tua Tagovailoa
22 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.

23 Michael Vick Michael Vick Michael Dwayne Vick (born June 26, 1980) is a former American football quarterback who played 13 seasons in the National Football League, primarily with the Atlanta Falcons and the Philadelphia Eagles.
