My last article on PhinPhantic.com took a look at six 2nd tier QBs in this year’s NFL Draft. I mainly compared their college statistics, but added some of my own analysis. The article received quite a few comments prompting an interesting discussion. First thing, I want to thank all who joined the discussion. Second, I wanted to note that the main criticism of the analysis questioned QBs and College Statistics – Do They Matter? So, I decided to take a look at the question researching some professional QBs and their college and pro statistics.
Just to summarize, I analyzed the college statistics of these six QBs focusing on four key statistics – completion percentage, yards per attempt (YPA), touchdown to interception ratio (TDs/INTs), and sacks taken per game. It should be noted that I also looked at a whole lot more their statistics. The table below identifies the six QBs and their college team along with these four key statistics in 2010.
