2011 NFL Draft: Wes Bunting Not High On QB Class

Quarterbacks remain the hot-button topic surrounding the Buffalo Bills and the 2011 NFL Draft. If you're anything like Wes Bunting of the National Football Post, you're probably not keen on the Bills taking one of this year's signal-callers early.

Bunting has released his Top 100 prospects for NFP, and his highest-ranked quarterback is Florida State senior Christian Ponder, who comes in at No. 37 overall.

Granted, the grading system Bunting uses in his evaluations does tend to favor players that will be able to contribute sooner rather than later, which explains the low rankings for the quarterbacks, and Ponder being his top-rated quarterback. But the low numbers for Blaine Gabbert (39), Cam Newton (49), Jake Locker (50), Ryan Mallett (57), Ricky Stanzi (72) and Andy Dalton (85) should give you an idea of the caliber of this crop of signal-callers when it comes to immediate returns and upside.

Meanwhile, a Rumblings favorite, Nevada's Colin Kaepernick, didn't make the cut. Be sure to check out the full list for several more surprises.
