Texas. Colt McCoy could be the number 1 pick next year over current favorite Sam Bradford. His completion percentage last year was a record breaking 77.6%.

That is because of all Texas's throws were less than 10 yards.Sam Bradford has a chance at #1 because he has accuracy on all 3 levels of the field.

The best player in college football will stand in their way - Terrelle Pryor.

The guy you're thinking of is Jordan Jefferson. And he's pretty good, but there's no way he's the best player in college. He might not even win the starting gig this season (the coaches gave Jarrett Lee a shot ahead of him last year for whatever reason, and there were a couple big-time QB recruits coming in this year, too).

Yeah Jefferson rings a bell. Maybe I was exagerating a a little, but the guy is going to be amazing, like Randall Cunningham but much more accurate. I didn't see him play a lot (I live in the UK and watching a lot of college ball takes a lot of dedication) but what I saw blew me away considering it was an 18 (19?) year old kid making those plays.

Who knows maybe he will just completely wash out, but I would bet on him winning a National Championship before he leaves LSU.

Yes, McCoy was clearly out of his depth against OSU, completing a mere 70.7% of his passes for 414 yards and 2 TDs, including one to cap a game winning drive with 16 seconds left. Did you even watch the game?

Bradford didn't have a great game against Florida, but it wasn't awful either (like Stafford's was). He's a better prospect than anyone in this year's draft and he'll probably be the number 1 pick when he comes out.
