2013 Quarterback Duels

by Justis Mosqueda

I compiled a list of the 18 quarterbacks I feel would be draftable if they declared in the 2013 draft. In an effort to ready myself for the 2013 season, I also compiled a list of games in which they face each-other (quarterback duel). October and November will be fun, but the first month and a half will be slow. October 26th will be very interesting for the underclassmen/west coast quarterback stock market. Some, like Braxton Miller and Devin Gardner, only play in one "quarterback duel" this year. Others, like A.J. McCarron, play a multitude of games, not including possible SEC Championship games and a bowl.

David Fales [San Jose State]
Stephen Morris [Miami]
Tajh Boyd [Clemson]
Zach Mettenberger [LSU]
Derek Carr [Fresno State]
A.J. McCarron [Alabama]
Bryn Renner [North Carolina]
Aaron Murray [Georgia]
Logan Thomas [Virginia Tech]

Teddy Bridgewater [Louisville]
Brett Smith [Wyoming]
Devin Gardner [Michigan]
Blake Bortles [UCF]
Braxton Miller [Ohio State]

Marcus Mariota [Oregon]
Brett Hundley [UCLA]
Johnny "Football" Manziel [Texas A&M]
Kevin Hogan [Stanford]
