McShay's top QB prospects for 2016


College football is almost upon us, which means the 2016 NFL draft will be here before you know it. Those of us at Scouts Inc. -- myself, Kevin Weidl and Steve Muench -- spent the summer scouring tape and ranking the top players at each position from a draft perspective.

Below is our preseason evaluation of the best quarterbacks in the 2016 draft.

Note: Underclassmen are marked with an asterisk.

Top 10 quarterbacks

1. Jared Goff, California Golden Bears*: Goff has had a productive first two seasons (61.2 percent completion rate, 7,481 passing yards and 53 TDs), but he needs to get more consistent with his lower-body mechanics and decision-making while also continuing to add bulk to his frame in 2015. He's shown the ability to make NFL-caliber throws into tight windows, which helps him stand out from the crowd in this QB class.
