One of my favorite things Peter King does every year before the draft is he watches tape of the top quarterback prospects and discusses what he sees with experts on the quarterback position. I remember he wrote an article after doing that in 1998 and said Peyton Manning was clearly superior to Ryan Leaf. This year he says Aaron Rodgers is better than Alex Smith (I agree), Jason Campbell has first-round talent, Charlie Frye is overrated, and Derek Anderson could be a second-day steal.
