Quarterback John Brantley has some huge shoes to fill in the likes of Tim Tebow for the Florida Gators. Brantley isn’t on anybody’s radar this year, except the coaching staff at Florida, but he should be. He’s going to see a lot of playing time this year and he’s the future at quarterback for the Gators. He’ll see tons of playing time in the spring game, and he brings a lot to the

Quarterback Tim Tebow is one of the most talked about college football quarterbacks in the land, and for good reason. Tebow has been nothing but stellar in leading the Florida Gators to the top of the SEC, to the National Championship, and has ammassed every record, trophy, and title you could possibly win along the way. He has been innovative, with his “jump pass” being a fantastically effective creation, he’s been a tremendous running quarterback, an accurate and strong-armed passing quarterback, a tremendous team leader, and has impeccable character.

Aaron Murray and Zach Mettenberger both committed to the Georgia Bulldogs for the 2009 season, and after the departure of Matt Stafford, everybody is looking to the future to see what’s in store for the Georgia Bulldogs this year.

So either Aaron Murray or Zach Mettenberger will take over in 2010? Not so fast, again! You have Logan Gray, a sophomore, a close second behind Cox.

Quarterback Mathew Stafford is the second to make yet another questionable call by a junior quarterback to go to the NFL. Safford and former USC quarterback Mark Sanchez preclude their senior seasons and turn their careers toward the NFL. Stafford is projected to go high in the draft and is one of the top, if not the top QB in the 2009 NFL draft. But being the top quarterback in the draft and becoming a top NFL quarterback is two different things.
Stafford’s strongest trait is his personality – especially his likeability, mental toughness, and leadership qualities. He has always been well-liked by the coaching staff and his teamates. He is storied to be a great leader in the locker room, and his mental toughness and confidence have been evident throughout his career. And now he’s being projected as a possible first pick overall in the NFL draft. Many Detroit Lions
