Ranking the Senior Bowl QBs

Landry Jones

Here's the ranking of the Senior Bowl quarterback after two days of practice. Who takes the top honors between Mike Glennon, Landry Jones and Tyler Wilson?

Mobile, Ala. – Here's a ranking and breakdown of the six quarterbacks playing in the Senior Bowl based on their performances during the first two days of practice for the North and South teams. It's a real close call with the top three signal caller.

1) Mike Glennon (N.C. State)
Of the six quarterbacks here Glennon had the best day on Tuesday. This is a kid with great size at 6-foot-6 and 232-pounds. He can make all the passes and throw with touch or velocity when needed. When he has a clean pocket and can set and plant Glennon is an accurate passer. He throws with good anticipation and has a beautiful long ball. Mobility, of lack of, is his big liability.

2) Tyler Wilson (Arkansas)
Wilson and Landry Jones are right there with Glennon. Wilson is only about 6-foot-2 but is big enough. He has a good and accurate arm and shows the ability to all the passes needed to be an NFL quarterback. Wilson has a pretty quick release and also good mobility. Yesterday he really showed the ability to throw on the run.

3) Landry Jones (Oklahoma)
Jones has very good size at 6-foot-4 and 225-pounds. He also has above average arm strength. He has a quicker release than Glennon but not quite as fast as Wilson. Two things stood out today with Jones, he has poise in the pocket to go through his progressions and he threw well on the run. Like Wilson and Jones he can make all the throws.

4) Ryan Nassib (Syracuse)
Nassib is a kid that surprised all with the season he had in 2012. He had a better Monday than Tuesday. Nassib doesn't quite have the arm as the three above and is better in the short and intermediate passing game. He's 6-foot-2 and 220-pounds and shows the ability to move around and throw on the run pretty accurately.

5) E.J. Manuel (FSU)
Manuel is blessed with a lot of size and physical tools. He's 6-foot-4 and 240-pounds. While he's not RG3 he does have very good mobility. As a passer, Manuel will make a good throw on one play and miss on the next. He struggles with consistency and he has done that here. He had a tough Monday but bounced back nicely today and threw the ball much better.

6) Zac Dysert (Miami Ohio)
Dysert doesn't have the monster arm and is much more adept at the touch passes and the short to medium range throws. He has struggled when he has had to make the hard throw with velocity. He moves pretty well and shows the ability to throw on the run.
