The 2020 NFL Draft is around the corner, teams have their board set, everyone is polishing their rankings, and I'm no different. This year I chose to put all my focus on the quarterback position, so I could allocate the time needed to make a fair and educated opinion on this quarterback class. Specifically, the top 10 quarterbacks.
In the upcoming days I will be posting individual articles of every quarterback in my watchlist, I haven't written on yet. The film and grading part of each one is set, only thing left is to...
Almost every player from every draft has a person that they remind me of. However, I have two comps. One of them what their career could be if they succeed, and the other if their career wasn't as good. Here are my comps for the top-five quarterback comps in this year's class.

The quarterback position is the most important position on a football team, there’s no debating this. Each year, teams are itching to find that quarterback that will take their team to the next level. There are some very talented quarterbacks who are eligible for the draft this year, and before the season ends, I’m going to give my top five.
*Disclaimer*: I am ranking these players based off talent, injuries and other red flags will be factored into my final grade, but for now I am not taking them into account.

With the end of the 2019 college football season on the horizon, underclassmen with NFL aspirations have an important choice to make: stay in school or declare for the draft. Among those prospects is University of Washington quarterback Jacob Eason.
The redshirt junior finds himself amidst a crop of highly touted and talented quarterbacks in the 2020 NFL Draft.

With the introduction of the transfer portal in October 2018 came a wave of players deciding to control their college football destinies by transferring to different schools. Quarterbacks, in particular, seemed to take advantage of their newfound opportunity with several big-name throwers changing uniforms going into the 2019-20 season. The real question, however, is this; do any of these big-name transfers have NFL potential? Let’s take a look.
