Anyway, after this year that streak will probably come to an end if we snatch Terrelle Pryor- which the experts say is likely.
Drew Henson was BIG BIG BIG time. Tom Brady was also a top prospect as was Brian Griese (going back a bit here). Can't remember Navarre's status. And the guy that was on the bench in 05 (Gui something can't spell his name) was also a top QB prospect but couldn't beat out Henne.
USC has had an amazing run lately with Palmer, Leinart, Booty, Sanchez, Corp and now Mustain.
With Texas the only big time guys I can think off are Vince Young and Chris Simms.
Florida State has got elite prospects over the past few years but pretty much all of them on the offensive side of the ball have been busts.
