Difficult to nail it down to one but here's who I like:

Cam Newton: Not particularly by himself. But I think if put on a great team, he's good enough to bring in Super Bowls. Now consider that the Panthers quietly allowed the fourth fewest yards per play last year. And that they had the fifth most plays from scrimmage ran against them. And only four defenses were on the field longer than the Panthers. They still allowed the 12th lowest QB rating. And they rushed for the 7th most yards per rush. Carolina quietly did everything very well except throw the ball. If Cam can just be efficient, Carolina can hand him a great career.

Jake Locker: Again, I don't think he's great by himself. But Tennessee is another team that puts together great teams. He has Chris Johnson behind him. The defense is powerful. Keep in mind that before Vince Young and Kenny Britt got hurt, Tennessee started 5-2. I believe in those seven games, the defense had 19 turnovers. But the Titans that finished the season was so different with Rusty Smith at QB and Randy Moss at WR. The Titans are so good, and they're ready for a Super Bowl. Like Newton, if Locker doesn't make mistakes, Tennessee will hand him a great career.

Colin Kaepernick: I think he's one of the more talented QBs in the draft. Quite possibly the best in the draft. He's being coached by Jim Harbaugh. I actually like San Francisco's defense as well. They definitely need to improve the pass defense, but it's a good defense. He has Frank Gore behind him. I just hope Gore can stay healthy. The guy ran for 1700 yards in his second year. He goes to a good team in the 49ers, and he will make them better.

Christian Ponder: It seems as if he's only missing the arm strength. He's another high-character guy who will uplift his team. He's going to a good one in Minnesota. It's a team that regularly drafts well, and they have Adrian Peterson. The only thing is I thought they were releasing Sidney Rice. But Minnesota is a team that for a couple years now was said to only be a quarterback away.
