Pro Football Focus ranks the Top 15 QBs in college football

russ-jones-chad-kellyOur friends at Pro Football Focus have watched all the games and broken down every single throw — or scramble — for starting quarterbacks entering the 2016 college football season.

Taking that into account, here’s their Top 15 ranking on who to watch under center this fall:

5. Chad Kelly, Ole Miss

From PFF: “His journey to the SEC was not an easy one, navigating several off-field issues and a dismissal from Clemson, but after finding a landing spot at Ole Miss it didn’t take long for Kelly to establish himself as one of the most gifted passers in the country. Kelly finished 2015 ranked first among SEC quarterbacks with an overall grade of +34.5. His passing chart is littered with positive grades, but he especially excelled when throwing it deep.”

With the top quarterback in the SEC at the wheel in Chad Kelly, there hasn’t been a lot of talk about the No. 1 quarterback in the 2016 recruiting class.

But Shea Patterson hasn’t gone unnoticed by his teammates.

Patterson (6-foot-1, 193 pounds) played at IMG Academy in Florida and in Shreveport, Louisiana, before that. He was an early Ole Miss commit and avoided the pursuits of others that always follow.

Losing Laquon Treadwell and Cody Core certainly hurt the Ole Miss receiving corps heading into the 2016 season.

However, the cupboard isn’t bare in Oxford, as senior WR Quincy Adeboyejo will attempt to prove this year.

Though Adeboyejo failed to add any weight to his 195-pound frame, he’s confident he’ll be able to handle the increased blocking requirements given to outside receivers like Treadwell and Core last year.

“I had a whole spring on the outside,” he said, “and I feel like it’s coming along even more.”
