    An Even More Accurate System Of Grading College QB

    Thus far, Mr. Fischer has run four of this year's top quarterback prospects through these metrics, and here's what he's come up with thus far:

    Blaine Gabbert - Score of .559, which would put him right between Brady Quinn and John David Booty on the chart.

    Jake Locker - Score of .262, approximately the same score as Tim Tebow and Dan LeFevour

    Ryan Mallett - Score of .738, which would put him right in between Ryan Leaf and Matt Ryan (could there be a bigger contrast there?)

    And then there's the guy that, if these metrics are to be believed, might be the best quarterback in the draft class of 2011. Not Cam Newton. . .not Colin Kaepernick. . .not Christian Ponder. . .remember, I said you should probably be sitting down for this. . .

    How's about Ricky Stanzi?

    Yes, Ricky freaking Stanzi.

    By Mr. Fischer's metrics, Stanzi clocks in at a 1.012. That gives him a higher score than Mark Sanchez, Aaron Rodgers, Philip Rivers, Drew Brees, Matt Schaub, and Joe Flacco. Stanzi had a pretty good senior year at Iowa. . .64.1% completion rate, 3,004 yards, and an outstanding TD-to-INT ratio of 25/6. So far, everything I've heard about Stanzi tabs him as a third or fourth round prospect.

    If Mr. Fischer's metrics are as accurate as they appear to be, the Vikings would be well-served to grab him a whole lot sooner than that.

    Considering the post contradicts the accuracy it claims, I'd be inclined to not believe any of it.

    Right between Ryan Leaf and Matt Ryan? Wow that's accurate stuff there.

    Did you read the article or are you making assumptions again.

    Yes I did. Fact remains, that it's still an entirely subjective way of grading players. It's a good reference, but not a way to make decisions. For example, I would not rule out a guy who scored lower than .850, but then again, I wouldn't go out of my way to get a guy with a higher score who I didn't feel would make a good fit.

    You're dead on ... it is just another rating system.

    It clearly is not any more accurate than others considering it has a fairly similar amount of hit and misses at the top of the charts and lucky hits at the bottom of the charts.

    I think, atleast for me, the biggest knock on Pike was the plate in his arm and that he had to keep having it re-tightened a couple of times.

    Sure its subjective, everything is subjective, but what is great about it is how accurate he has been with his subjective process.

    In short, his misses vs pro staff misses are significantly different.
