Best Pro QBs produced by each FBS school

The Gipper

Recommended Posts

In the course of replying to another thread, I started doing this: checking out who were the best Pro QBs that have been produced by various schools. Well, here I will give the data for each FBS school and their best 3 QBs....or at least the power conferences, and perhaps I will do the others as well depending on time. By best I am using the single statistic used by Pro Football Reference and their Career Production average. At least lets say these are the most "productive" QBs in a career, if not best. Lets start with those QBs produced by each school currently in:

How is the rating calculated? I'm surprised at the gap between Brady and Manning being that big.


Statistically, Manning is far and away the best regular season QB ever.

Stanford so far has the most if you include Luck. Elway has two Super Bowl rings, as does Plunkett. Luck will get his share too. Browns might take a look at Stanford's current quarterback.
