The college football season is set to commence practice, and we counting down our top 25 quarterbacks for 2014. There are plenty of high profile quarterbacks that spurned the NFL for another shot at college football glory. Other star quarterbacks had no choice but to come back for the 2014 season.
For the second year in a row, the Heisman Trophy winner was a awarded to a red shirt freshman quarterback. This time Jameis Winston took it a step further by doubling up with the national title. If that’s not pressure to duplicate a terrific season, there will never be pressure.
It was almost a foregone conclusion that Oregon and UCLA would be missing their stud quarterbacks. However, the PAC 12 defenses had to shed a tear when Marcus Mariota and Brett Hundley came back for another season. They are just two in a host of quarterback talent out west.
Famous Jameis took the world by storm in his first game against Pittsburgh, and never looked back. There will be another prospect that exceeds expectations in 2014. It’s just a matter of timing and opportunity.
If you feel a quarterback is overlooked, feel free to leave your comment.
The final five have won conference championships, BCS championships, and BCS Bowl games. We could very well find the national champion QB out of this group. If so, they will be the first quarterback to lead their team in the new age of the college football playoff system.
We are counting down from No. 5- No. 1.
