The most important position in all of sports. The problem is that with the overwhelming implementation of spread offenses in college, very few quarterbacks come to the NFL with all of the rudimentary skills needed to play in the NFL, such as reading defenses or going through progressions. It use to be that the best college teams produced the best quarterbacks, but that is not the case anymore. The reason is that college teams realized they can’t out recruit the top teams, so they try to out scheme them. If a middle of the road college team tried to go mano e mano against a team with mostly 5 star recruits, they would have a very difficult day. However, if you change the scheme to where lesser athletes can compete, you have a chance. There is even talk of establishing some sort of extra rookie camp or developmental league for young quarterbacks coming into the NFL. Depending on scheme, teams are looking for a strong enough arm, good decision making, adequate height and hand size, accuracy, ability to read defenses, ability to retain and process data, strong leadership, and good footwork in the pocket.
