PLAYERS: Ryan Nassib
TEAMS: Syracuse Orange
I believe that Ryan Nassib has received undo criticism. Despite the fact that this is a very weak quarterback class, many commentators have raised an extremely high bar for the few prospects that have a snowball's chance in hell of making a significant impact at the NFL level.The top five QBs are all in the same boat in my opinion. None is head and shoulders above the rest, and each has a "flaw" that could hinder his jump to the pro game.

But Gruden, analyst for ESPNs Monday Night Football, doesnt claim to know what Reid will do with the Chiefs No. 1 pick. Yet if Reid is looking for a quarterback past the first round, theres one prospect that stands...

Syracuse searches for QB, finds another contender

Ryan Nassib's replacement for Syracuse won't be determined until August. Finding a new starting quarterback never promised to be easy, and the three players in the hunt for the job now have to worry about another. Former Oklahoma backup Drew Allen, on target to graduate in May, is taking the same route as Greg Paulus four years ago. The 6-foot-5, 226-pound Allen was given...
