Quarterbacks: Pac-12

When building or rebuilding an NFL team, the quarterback position is usually where you start. The main place scouts and personnel people go to look for a quarterback is the Pac-12. They just need to be careful about USC because Todd Marinovich, Matt Leinart and Mark Sanchez can happen.

Aside from that, the Pac-12 usually puts the best ones out because that conference throws the ball. Of the top-15 leading passers in the history of the NFL, the Pac-12 has the most with four of them. Seven of the 49 Super Bowls were won by Pac-12 quarterbacks and 10 have played in the big game.

And of the 23 quarterbacks in the Hall of Fame, six of them came from Pac-12 schools to lead all conferences. Aaron Rodgers is hands down the best quarterback in the NFL today while Andrew Luck is the best young one. Then we have a kid named Jared Goff that could end up being the best quarterback prospect for 2016.
