NFL QBs in College

There's an article here that posits you can get a really good feel for how 1st and 2nd round QBs will do based on college starts and college completion percentage. This apparently bodes well for Jason Campbell. Anyway, does anyone know where I can find more information on this? I would guess someone has done a write up if this indeed proves to be generally true. I'd like to see a list with the numbers, but I couldn't find it.

It's a tremendous site with loads of good information and new, quantitative analysis. It's affiliated with Baseball Prospectus, so it's research of the highest order. That and K.C. Joyner's website ar emust reads for serious football fans. I believe that research comes out in their annual book, but I remember a column at least introducing a few months ago on the site.

Thanks Phil. I'd still like to find something that goes through a longer time period for that observation. QBs just seem like a total crapshoot to me, but I guess there have to be *some* trends.

If there is such a thing as trends, don't you think every team in the NFL would be all over it by now?

Success in college does not always lead to success in the NFL. Players need to find the right situation for them with a solid group of players around them as well as good coaching ie: Joe Montana with the 49ers, Troy Aikman with the Cowboys and Tom Brady with the Patriots. Just ask poor Archie Manning about the team he had to lead. Talk about going to a gun fight with a toothpick.
