The NFL Combine is sparking plenty of intrigue regarding the quarterbacks participating. After Thursday’s scouting opportunity, college football analyst Joel Klatt has released his list of the top-five quarterbacks in this year’s draft class.
To no surprise whatsoever, former LSU QB Joe Burrow tops Klatt’s list. The 2019-20 Heisman trophy winner had a historic season for the Tigers last year. Burrow is expected to be the first overall pick in the upcoming draft.
Tua Tagovailoa checks in at No. 2 on Klatt’s list. Many prefer Tagovailoa over Burrow – even given the former Alabama QB’s injury history. It’s hard not to like what Tagovailoa brings to the table.
The first two quarterbacks featured on Klatt’s ranking aren’t surprising, but the third QB is. Klatt prefers Utah State’s Jordan Love over Oregon’s Justin Herbert. The college football analyst’s full QB ranking can be found below:

Both Love and Herbert are very good quarterback prospects.
Herbert has the better arm, but Love may be the better passer. Each is athletic and capable of escaping pocket pressure and making big plays. There’s a strong chance both prospects are selected within the first 15 picks of the upcoming draft.
The first round of the NFL Draft takes place in Las Vegas on April 23rd.
