College quarterbacks most likely to be NFL stars

9Jake Browning, Washington

A massive drop in production from 2016 to last season (43 to 19 touchdown passes) won’t stop Browning from generating buzz as an NFL prospect.

The three-year Huskies starter took the reins as a freshman and hasn’t looked back. He’s guided Washington to a playoff appearance, averaged over 3,000 yards per season with a 64.4 percent completion rate and averaged 8.3 yards per attempt.

Pro Football Focus highlighted how lethal Browning is when pass protection cooperates:

Browning lacks top-flight arm strength but has numbers that don’t suggest a dink-and-dunk, game-managing passer. If he can bulk up a little from 6’2″, 210 pounds and add higher velocity to his arsenal, his chances of being an NFL star will skyrocket.
