How would you rank 2016 CUSA QB's?
There are a lot of new faces at QB so ranking them is pretty hard. I think there will be the normal three tiers, "Elite", "Solid starter" and "Could be replaced mid year." How would you guys project them to stack up this year?


Tier 1-"Elite"
1. Nick Mullens-USM
2. Brent Stockstill-MT
3. Chase Litton-MU

Tier 2-"Solid starter"
4. Alex McGough-FIU
5. Mike White-WKU
6. Kevin Olsen-CHA
7. Zack Greenlee-UTEP
8. Ryan Higgins-LT

Tier 3-"Could be replaced mid year"
9. David Washington-ODU
10. Jared Johnson-UTSA
11. Tyler Stehling-RICE
12. Alec Morris-UNT
13. Jason Driskel-FAU

Like I said, this is tough because there are so many unknowns. What do you guys think?

You need to split tier 2 into proven starters who arent elite like McGough, and the cast of likely but unproven guys like White & Olsen, IMHO.

Top three are right. I'm not sure beyond that. If Washington is healthy I feel pretty comfortable with him leading our offense. I think I'd put him in the middle tier based on your descriptions.

Not quite sure you could say Olsen is a solid starter without any game evidence.

It's not clear how the QB situation at UTSA might turn out. Sturm might be the guy at the start or at some point during the season. He's got some talent.

The biggest problem with UTSA in recent years is the offensive line. That has been the weakest part of the team. We can't expect much out of the QBs until that improves (no matter who is back there).

Hard to rank a unknown and at this point that's what Western's QB and a few others are

I would have a top 2 and move Chase Litton with Alex McGough then a another tier. At this point Litton has not shown any more than Mcgough. That might change but till it does neither belong with 1. Nick Mullens & 2. Brent Stockstill

Agree. I am optimistic about him, but we have no reports really.

Lambert said on the radio on Friday that he likes him and he's been a good teammate, but didn't say anything about how he has actually performed in practice, unless I missed that part of his interview.

Any fans from longer standing CUSA programs care to weigh in on some of the best years for a top 2-3 QBs group in the league?

I guess two years ago with Heineke and Cato as seniors and Doughty in his ninth(tenth?) season would certainly be on the list.

Like I said in my first post this is how I PROJECT the QBs to rank at the end of the season. Olsen is very talented, nearly beat out Brad Kaaya at Miami. They went with Kaaya because he was ready as a true freshman and had a higher ceiling. Olsen also had off the field problems. Phil Steele has Olsen ranked 5th so it's not too crazy.
