NFL Draft Preview: Top 10 quarterbacks

1. Sam Darnold*, USC. 6-3, 221. At the top largely because of improvisational playmaking and strong leadership, but turnovers can't be ignored.

2. Josh Rosen*, UCLA. 6-4, 226. True pocket passer with a strong, accurate arm, and anticipates well. Questions linger about how much he loves football.

3. Josh Allen*, Wyoming. 6-4, 237. Big, strong, tough and the ability to throw hard through the wind. Accuracy issues and struggled vs. top competition.

4. Baker Mayfield, Oklahoma. 6-0, 216. Fiery competitor with a quick release and good anticipation. More cocky than confident.

5. Lamar Jackson*, Louisville. 6-2, 216. Tremendous athlete who poses a great threat with his feet, but needs plenty of work on mechanics and reading coverages.

6. Mason Rudolph, Oklahoma State. 6-4, 235. Straight out of central casting for the role of a big-time pocket passer.

7. Kyle Lauletta, Richmond. 6-2, 222. Highly productive with great mechanics and a good, but far from great, arm.

8. Mike White, Western Kentucky. 6-4, 221. Good size with a strong arm and had to adjust to three offenses in a college career that began at South Florida.

9. Luke Falk, Washington State. 6-3, 223. Faces a major transition going from an offense that exclusively put him in shotgun formation to working under center in the NFL.

10. Kurt Benkert, Virginia. 6-2, 218. Having played in an offense that called for him to read only half the field, he'll struggle with more thorough scanning. Accuracy is a concern.
