The NFL Draft will take place May 8 -10 at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. Over the next two weeks, Redskins.com will help you get to know the prospects who could wear burgundy and gold, play for an NFC East Rival or become the steal of your 2014 Fantasy Football draft. Here are the five top quarterbacks according to NFL Media draft analyst Mike Mayock:

Monday, April 21
Quarterback Capsules
:


1.) 
JOHNNY MANZIEL, Texas A&M

NFL.com Bottom Line:

A once-in-a-generation, run-around, ad-lib, sandlot-style quarterback who consistently won games playing a brand of fast-paced, jailbreak football that often goes off script and can be difficult both to game plan with and against…more.

2.) BLAKE BORTLES, Central Florida

NFL.com Bottom Line:

Possesses ideal size, athletic ability, intangibles and enough arm strength to develop into an upper-echelon quarterback. Is not yet a franchise quarterback, but has all the physical ingredients to become an outstanding NFL starter and his arrow is very clearly ascending…more.

3.) TEDDY BRIDGEWATER, Louisville

NFL.com Bottom Line:

A calculated, football-smart, precision-matchup rhythm passer, Bridgewater would be best suited entering a warm-weather or dome environment such as those most common in the South divisions…more.

4.) DEREK CARR, Fresno State

NFL.com Bottom Line:

Athletic, tough, instinctive, strong-armed, highly competitive quarterback who will impress in workouts, interviews and on the board, and improved his draft standing with those skills in the postseason…more.

5A.) AJ McCARRON, Alabama

NFL.com Bottom Line:

An efficient game-managing quarterback who has shown he can carry an offense at times throughout his career, but more often is dependent on a terrific supporting cast…more.

5B.) JIMMY GAROPPOLO, EASTERN ILLINOIS

NFL.com Bottom Line:

A decorated FCS passer, Garoppolo could excite quarterback coaches with his quick delivery, mental make-up and work habits, yet he still needs to prove he can fit the ball into tight windows and do more than carve up soft shells the way he regularly did on his way to a record-breaking performance in college…more.
