    When picking a college quarterback, you're presented with a strange choice. Do you go with the passer who'll throw for 32 touchdowns, or go with the running quarterback who might throw 11 TD passes, but run for ten TDs? The rushing yard element puts some quarterbacks head and shoulders above the others, and as the numbers show, you should go with the runners. Keep in mind that this is FANTASY football and not a ranking of how good these players are. These are the projections based on how they should do statistically according to the CFN Scoring System.

    BLUE CHIP RECRUITS - Get your hands on one of these QBs no matter what. These are the franchise players.

    1. Colt Brennan, Sr. Hawaii
    CFN 2006 Point Total (note: these don’t include two-point conversions): 337 … 24.07 ppg
    All Brennan did was come up with the greatest statistical quarterbacking season in college football history with 58 touchdown passes and 5,549 yards. It's asking too much for the same numbers, but with almost all his weapons back, he'll put up huge numbers. Think of it this way; if he comes up with half the stats, he'll still be a star.

    2. Pat White, Jr. West Virginia
    CFN 2006 Point Total: 253 … 19.48 ppg
    He's not nearly as bad a passer as many might make out to be, and there aren't any better runners at the moment. His 18 touchdown runs and 1,219 yards of last year makes him a bankable star, and he should do it all again.

    3. Chase Holbrook, Jr. New Mexico State
    CFN 2006 Point Total: 214 … 17.81 ppg
    With all the top receivers back and a year of experience under his belt, Holbrook should approach 2006 Colt Brennan-like passing numbers after throwing for 34 scores and 4,619 yards. He'll even run for a few scores.

    4. Brian Johnson, Jr. Utah
    CFN 2005 Point Total: 188 … 18.83 ppg
    Note that the point totals are from 2005, when he ran the Utah spread attack almost as well as Alex Smith. After taking a year off from a 2005 knee injury, he's back and better than ever. Word is he's even sharper than before.

    5. Curtis Painter, Jr. Purdue
    CFN 2006 Point Total: 188 … 13.44 ppg
    One of the nation's underrated statistical machines, Painter has one of the nation's best receiving corps to throw to and is a good enough runner to potentially get into the end zone close to ten times.

    SECOND TIER - These will be some of the biggest producers in the country with a good chance of breaking into the top five prospects.
    6. Chase Daniel, Jr. Missouri
    CFN 2006 Point Total: 199 ... 15.34 ppg
    Decent running numbers will help push him over the 200 point mark, but he'll make the most noise through the air.
    7. Graham Harrell, Jr. Texas Tech
    CFN 2006 Point Total: 213 ... 16.40 ppg
    The only thing keeping him from the top five is his receiving corps. It's brand new and untested.
    8. Chris Nickson, Jr. Vanderbilt
    CFN 2006 Point Total: 182 … 15.20 ppg
    After a tremendous first year, now he should approach 750 rushing yards and should be even better for the passing game. He still has Earl Bennett to throw to.
    9. Matt Grothe, Soph. South Florida
    CFN 2006 Point Total: 189 … 14.51 ppg
    Now he knows what he's doing. Good as a freshman, running for nine scores, he should now up the touchdown passes from 15 to over 20
    10. Justin Willis, Soph. SMU
    CFN 2006 Point Total: 158 … 14.38 ppg
    He's the total SMU offense with good running skills and one of the nation's most accurate arms. Consider him a lock for 30 touchdown passes.
    11. Dan LeFevour, Soph. Central Michigan
    CFN 2006 Point Total: 212 … 15.14 ppg
    Will the new coaching staff hurt the overall stats? Probably not. LeFevour should probably be ranked a bit higher.
    12. Andre Woodson, Sr. Kentucky
    CFN 2006 Point Total: 161 … 12.39 ppg
    With all his weapons back to work with, the future NFL first rounder should build on his tremendous breakout season and come close to 40 touchdown passes.
    13. Kaipo-Noa Kaheaku-Enhada, Jr. Navy
    CFN 2006 Point Total: 113 … 11.33 ppg
    The Navy quarterback is always a threat to be a monster statistical star. The only downside is the rest of the Midshipmen backfield, which is more than good enough to take away several touchdown runs.
    14. Bobby Reid, Jr. Oklahoma State
    CFN 2006 Point Total: 179 … 13.75 ppg
    Reid has Adarius Bowman to throw to and the running skills to get in the end zone time and again. The biggest question is his health, considering 2006 was the first time he was able to get through a season.
    15. Julian Edelman, Jr. Kent State
    CFN 2006 Point Total: 149 … 13.51 ppg
    While he won't throw for many scores, he's a tremendous runner who'll be an outside threat to tear off 1,000 yards.
