Rookie QB poll results: No clear winner
By Bill Williamson
I want to thank everyone who participated in our SportsNation poll on rookie quarterbacks and the AFC West.
We had a terrific response and an extremely tight race.
We wanted to know which quarterback prospect you’d most like to see be drafted by an AFC West team. All four teams in the division could draft a quarterback. We focused on prospects who could be taken in the second or third round. The choices were TCU’s Andy Dalton, Nevada’s Colin Kaepernick, Washington’s Jake Locker, Arkansas’ Ryan Mallett and Florida State’s Christian Ponder.
Kaepernick, Locker and Mallett were all neck-and-neck with Dalton and Ponder each getting their share of the votes. This exercise shows just how close these prospects are in skill level and long-term projections. Thanks again for participating.
