    1. Wisconsin's Danny O'Brien - 6'3 - 215 lbs - Sr(R) - 90 OVR

    Stats: 67% - 1126 yds - 11 TD - 1 INT

    While not the highest rated player, O'Brien excells with decision making. He has only turned the ball over once all season while leading his team to an undefeated record so far. He may miss on some throws (85 THA), but when he hits, its for a big gain.


    2. Oregon's Bryan Bennett - 6'3 - 205 lbs - Jr(R) - 90 OVR

    Stats: 67% - 1183 yds - 10 TD - 3 INT --- 49 rush - 206 yds - 5 TDs - 0 Fumb

    Coach sonn looks to be taking more to the spread this year using Bennetts legs. He has 15 total TDs and only 3 TO's. While his team did lose a game, he has been nothing short of phenominal through 5 weeks. The offense will never be the reason this team losses with Bennett at the helm.

    3. USC's Cody Kessler - 6'1 - 211 lbs - So(R) - 84 OVR

    Stats: 68.5% - 1505 yds - 13 TD - 6 INT

    Kessler is a solid Pocket Passer and has filled in nicely after Barkley's departure. He is tops in completion percentage and yards in the NCAA but has throw 6 INTs and has fumbled 2x from the pocket. His succeptability to the turnover and less physical skills has him only at #3 for now on this list.

    Others to watch:

    SC Connor Shaw - Good QB but a subpar completion percentage at 60%. He is 2nd in the NCAA in yardage, but at less efficiency than the other QBs. He could very easily move up this list as his team progresses and he completes more passes.

    Cal Allan Bridgeford - Solid efficiency but barely over a 2:1 TD:INT ratio. If he can be more productive while cutting out the turnovers, he can make a move up the list.

    Bama AJ McCarron - Excellent Pocket Passer with 65% efficiency and a 12:3 TD:INT ratio but only 13th in yards. He has lead his team to 4-0 after a bad 2012 campaign, so he could be comeback player of the year.

    could change. good td ratio...slightly below threshold for efficiency. only reason shaw is on the list with 60% is the TD #. nothing personal :p. also, the now 3-2 record.

    yes, you do enough riding our ass and doing the season outlook and midseason review stuff. so figured i'd do a watch list for the end of year awards. then the winners of those end of season awards will be the finalists for the MVP voting. i assume you wouldn't mind something taken off your plate with all the other stuff you're involved in. :) ONLY doing the MVP watch seemed like nothing for me to do at all.

    Week 14

    1. Wisconsin's Danny O'Brien - 6'3 - 215 lbs - Sr(R) - 90 OVR


    [​IMG]
    Stats: 67% - 3652 yds - 39 TD - 12 INT

    O'Brien has really come on strong through the end of the season. He has posted a near 4:1 TD:INT ratio and is the model of efficiency.

    2. Bama's AJ McCarron - 6'4 - 206 lbs - Sr(R) - 93 OVR


    [​IMG]
    Stats: 69% - 3162 yds - 37 TD - 11 INT

    McCarron also has come raging through the schedule. He's nearly as efficient as O'Brien in the TD ratio, but is better in terms of completion percentage. McCarron is the general to the offense and his job is a lot easier with a 1500 yd RB behind him.

    3. Stanford's Eric Schultz - 6'1 - 184 lbs - FR - 80 OVR


    [​IMG]
    Stats: 63% - 3004 yds - 30 TD - 12 INT

    A true freshman which supreme talent that will no doubt lead Stanford for 4 years. A blue-chipper out of HS, Schultz has given his team a chance to always compete for the PAC12.

    Just outside the Top 3:

    Cal Allan Bridgeford - Solid efficiency and almost a 3:1 TD:INT ratio. 3rd in the NCAA in yardage.
