Randy Rodgers' QB Comparison:
Of the QB's that you have given me, I would rank Mustain and Stafford well above the others. They are ready to play at the college level. Mustain is technically more sound, Stafford may have better velocity, Mustain is a better running threat. You can take first pick and I'll take the other. I see Freeman as strictly a pocket guy, Jones and Williams as more athletic. I think Jones has the best mobility, the most ability to make plays with his feet, and by far the best runner. It will be interesting to see how Charlie Weis tones down Jones, but he is a major talent athletically to play in that kind of system. Williams will also need to red shirt to improve on mechanics.
