CFB Expert Ranks The Top 10 Quarterbacks In The Country

Who are the best college football quarterbacks in the country?

There are a number of players who could try and lay claim to the title of the top signal caller in college football. After all, there will be no shortage of quarterback studs taking the field on Saturdays this fall.

Athlon Sports' Steven Lassan ranked every starting QB from 130 all the way down to No. 1. You can check out his full list here.

As for the top 10 quarterbacks, read below.

10. Josh Rosen, UCLA

This is most likely going to be "The Rosen One's final season with the Bruins. He is all but a lock to leave school early and enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

9. Trace McSorley, Penn State

McSorley burst onto the scene last year, leading the Nittany Lions to a Rose Bowl. Can he top that in 2017?

8. Luke Falk, Washington State

Playing in the Air Raid is a quarterback's dream, and Falk has enjoyed passing for more than 4,000 yards in back-to-back seasons. Maybe that's why he elected to come back in 2017.

7. Mason Rudolph, Oklahoma State

Speaking of quarterbacks coming back, Oklahoma State fans are excited to see Rudolph stay in Stillwater. He will look to lead the Cowboys to their first conference title since 2011.

6. Quinton Flowers, USF

A dual-threat star, Flowers might get slept on because he doesn't play for a Power Five program. That needs to change.

5. Jake Browning, Washington

Browning led U-Dub to the College Football Playoff last season, and is looking to duplicate the feat this year.

4. J.T. Barrett, Ohio State

Barrett's 2016 might have been slightly disappointing, even with 33 total touchdowns and 3, 400 total yards. He could put up even better numbers in 2017.

3. Baker Mayfield, Oklahoma

Mayfield has put up huge numbers the last two years. Can he win the Heisman and lead OU to a national title this season?

2. Sam Darnold, USC

Darnold wasn't even USC's starting quarterback at the beginning of last season. Now, he's poised to potentially be the No. 1 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

1. Lamar Jackson, Louisville

The reigning Heisman Trophy winner is a video game come to life out on the field. Opposing defenses beware: Jackson is back to build on his ridiculous 2016.
