College Football QB Power Rankings: Georgia’s Carson Beck on top entering spring, Shedeur Sanders in top five

Let’s have a look at some of the more notable signal callers in the country as spring practices get underway

The focus in the football world right now is on former star college quarterbacks ready to be taken in the 2024 NFL Draft. Some believe that as many as five could go in the first round with some theorizing the first four picks could all be signal callers. That would be a surprise but not a huge one because QB is the most powerful position in sports.

The right QB can change an entire team or program’s fortunes.

There is another reason why so many NFL talent evaluators believe we’ll see a run on QBs in the NFL Draft this season: Scouts aren’t as high on the potential prospects in the 2025 class. There’s a long time between now and the 2025 draft and plenty of opinions will change (nobody thought Jayden Daniels or Bo Nix would be potential first-rounders at this time last year), but I bring this up for one simple reason.

These QB Power Rankings are not a ranking of NFL potential, talent or statistics. They are power rankings. They take everything into account — where you are, who you are, what you have done, what you could do and your overall vibe. At this point of the offseason, there’s far more art than science. These rankings are a reflection of the March vibes with spring practices beginning for many teams around the country. A lot can change between now and the first snaps of the fall. 

Eyes on this spring: Drew Allar, Penn State; Jackson Arnold, Oklahoma; Nico Iamaleava, Tennessee, Avery Johnson, Kansas State; Cam Ward, Miami
