PFF Ranking All Starting College Quarterbacks:
All 130 starters.

1. CLEMSON: TREVOR LAWRENCE
No true freshman has put forth the kind of grades we saw from Lawrence last year as he dominated game in and game out. He took remarkable care of the football with just five turnover-worthy plays to his credit, the fewest among quarterbacks with at least 250 dropbacks. He also was a maestro with the ball, unleashing 27 big-time throws, a true freshman record and the fifth-most among active quarterbacks. His 27 BTT to 5 TWP is one of the best ratios we’ve ever seen from any quarterback, let alone a true freshman and he did it all with a media circus following him around since high school. He’s the face of college football for a reason and he’ll remain there for at least two more seasons.


2. ALABANA: TUnA TAGOVAILOA
Tagovailoa’s emergence is well documented and he’s set up with the nation’s best receiving corps this season with Jerry Jeudy, Jaylen Waddle, DeVonta Smith and Henry Ruggs. He makes all the throws, and makes them all look easy. Tagovailoa routinely squeezes balls into tight windows just as he throws with anticipation as he leads the nation in several passer rating categories. His marks of 141.6 from a clean pocket (first), 110.0 under pressure (fifth), 144.7 with play action (first) and 130.7 without play action (first) showcase just how dominant he was a year ago. He and Lawrence will battle it out for top QB honors this year in as spirted of a race we’ll get to witness in some time.


9. GEORGIA: JAKE FROMM
Fromm hasn’t quite taken the Bulldogs all the way to a National Title but he has single-handedly given the Crimson Tide the most scares on their way to the season finale. Fromm is as good as they come from a clean pocket and his two-year grade of second in the SEC to only Tagovailoa. With a talented running back and one of the nation’s best bookend tackle situations, Fromm has Georgia ready to once again contend for a National Championship.


11. OKLAHOMA: JALEN HURTS
Seemingly forgotten after Tua Tagovailoa rocketed Alabama back into a pass-first offense, Hurts has headed to Norman where he can only hope to see some of the success that the last two transfer quarterbacks coached by Lincoln Riley at Oklahoma have. Hurts has never been the passing talent that the likes of Baker Mayfield or Kyler Murray were in college but all he does is win at the helm. He may not get it done in the flashiest of ways with big shots down the field, seeing just a 9.7 average depth of target, that’s something that Riley has been able to harness out of his previous two signal-callers. If Hurts can improve on downfield passes, he’ll firmly plant himself in the Heisman race all season long.


17. LSU: JOE BURROW
Burrow found himself a home with the Tigers in 2018, leading way to a career-high overall grade and a 78.8 passing grade after two seasons of limited snaps at Ohio State. Burrow averaged 7.7 yards per attempt while dominating when kept clean from pressure. His 90.5 passing grade from a clean pocket is a clear sign of potentially even bigger things to come for he and the LSU offense as he’ll have a slew of talented pass-catchers to get the ball to in 2019.


21. TENNESSEE: JARRETT GUARANTANO
During the 2018 season, Guarantano’s performance against Kentucky was the highest-graded single-game outing among returning quarterbacks. He showcased what made him such a highly-touted recruit as the No. 1 dual-threat QB from New Jersey and the No. 2 player overall from his state. His marked improvement from 2017 to 2018 gives reason for hope of a big season in Knoxville this year.


ETA: Congrats to all who made it on the top tier post

re: PFF Ranking All Starting College Quarterbacks:
25. TEXAS A&N: KELLERN MOND
Mond is set to be the next Jimbo Fisher quarterback to hear his name called early in the NFL draft as he took control of the Aggies offense a year ago. His career-high overall and passing grade are great signs for the future as he strung together some big-time performances and totaled 3,110 passing yards with another 657 on the ground. A threat with the ball in his hands either from the pocket or outside, Mond can move defenses and is sharp with his reads, something he’ll have to rely on with Texas A&M’s gauntlet of a schedule this year (@ Clemson, vs Alabama, vs Auburn, @ Ole Miss, @ Georgia, @ LSU).


29. MISSOURI: KELLY BRYANT
The lost man at Clemson, Bryant quietly performed well above-average in 2017 as the starter before making way for Lawrence a year ago and transferring to the Tigers. In that 2017 season, he led the ACC in adjusted completion percentage and set career-highs in overall and passing grade as he’ll look to add a new dynamic to the Missouri offense that they haven’t seen in a few years with Drew Lock at the helm. Bryant averaged 4.8 yards per carry, forced 36 missed tackles and gained 464 yards after contact on the ground in 2017 as he’s a true dual-threat behind center.


33. SOUTH CAROLINA: JAKE BENTLEY
Speaking of veteran signal-callers, Bentley has manned the ship at South Carolina for the past three seasons, averaging a career 7.5 yards per attempt. Gone are some of his playmakers from year’s past but Bentley is every bit as good a quarterback no matter who he’s throwing to. When targeting wide receivers, he’s seen a 100.9 and when targeting running backs, he’s seen a passer rating of 103.0.


43. FLORIDA: FELEIPE FRANKS
Extremely inconsistent with his performances, Franks’ good play was certainly outweighed by his bad play a year ago. Still, with an improved situation going forward, he’s in the best position of his career to succeed. More games like that against Florida State and fewer games like that against Kentucky a year ago and the Gators will be sitting pretty. They do have the advantage in the season opener against Miami *see above.


46. KENTUCKY: TERRY WILSON
Wilson takes care of the football when needed in the passing game and can take off with it when all breaks down in front of him. That being said, his anticipatory throws are a thing of beauty but need to come far more than they did a season ago for the Wildcats to be considered a scary aerial attack. Until then, Wilson can rely on his rushing ability that is among the nation’s best. His 692 total rushing yards and 417 yards after contact all lead the conference.


50. OLE MISS: MATT CORRAL
Corral wowed in his limited time in the Rebels offense last season, coming away with an 88.5 overall grade on 67 snaps through four games. He uncorked a big-time throw on one of his 22 attempts last year and had a 72.7% completion percentage while averaging a ridiculous 10.9 yards per attempt. He showcased what made him such a highly-prized recruit and even added a solid rushing attack to an already impressive passing ability. The future is bright for Ole Miss with him behind center.


63. MISSISSIPPI STATE: TOMMY STEVENS
Stevens has transferred away from Penn State after Sean Clifford has taken the reigns in the post-Trace McSorley era. Stevens enters with a year of eligibility left and some positive grades early in his career, in limited samples. He’s got all the talent and will finally have his shot.


85. VANDERBILT: RILEY NEAL/DEUCE WALLACE
The Ball State transfer has three years of average grades and a season of above-average grades that came in an injury-shortened season of 2017. Still, Neal now has a chance to show his skillset against the SEC and will have an uber-talented tight end to throw to. His career grade against all opponents is a solid 73.1 but dips to a 60.3 when playing against Power-5 competition, something he’ll have to obviously improve upon with Vandy’s schedule. Wallace has attempted just 22 passes and nothing has been learned about who has the leg up entering the season as the quarterbacks have been off-limits to media this offseason. [/i]


96. AUBURN: JOEY GATEWOOD
The former No. 1 athlete from the state of Florida, Gatewood has been committed to the Auburn Tigers since 2015. However, he attempted just a single pass and had just five carries a season ago as he waited out Jarrett Stidham’s tenure. Perhaps an untapped jewel, Gatewood’s top-50 ranked high school profile follows him with lofty expectations to rise fast on this list in 2019.


102. ARKANSAS: BEN HICKS/NICK STARKEL
On one hand, Hicks has raised his grade in each of the past three seasons. On the other, his career overall grade drops from 64.6 against all competition all the way down to just a 39.0 against Power-5 competition. He’s got a ways to go in terms of playing up to his opponent and he’ll have to prove that in SEC play this year. Starkel had a fine season at Texas A&M in 2017 but lost that job to Kellen Mond and if he cannot beat out Hicks for the Razorbacks’ job, that 2017 seems to be becoming more of an anomaly with each passing day.

Clearly it was his fault Quentin Williams was playing out of his sterioded mind and blowing past double blocks on every play

These lists are fun for the fans, but statistics for college QBs are poor indicators when the competition is not equal. In other words, Ehlinger ain’t getting drafted ahead of Fromm.

What QB doesn't have a good rating when they have no pressure?


I just feel like some of the "analytics" just come up with metrics to make average QB's look good. Any list that mentions "dominant" and Joe Burrow in the same sentence is trash

re: PFF Ranking All Starting College Quarterbacks:
You are already being unwilling to reason. You already won't entertain the thought of Mond. That in mind, why would I want to discuss this with you? Besides, You probably think Fromm is the 2nd or 3rd best in the country. That is more ridiculous than thinking there are a dozen better than him.

This list is the outlier. Fromm is normally in the top 5 with good reason.
