The Top 50 Small School Edelmens

Let’s face it, Julian Edelmen is not the first college QB to switch positions to play in the NFL and Braxton Miller of Ohio State, if he’s successful, won’t be the last.

Hines Ward, Dennard Robinson, Ronald Curry, Josh Cribbs, Freddie Solomon, Brian Mitchell … well you get the picture. But college quarterbacks being looked at as potential receivers are now commonly referred to as Edelmens after the wildly succesful New England Patriot who was a former QB at Kent State.

Teams like former QBs because they tend to grasp the offense, read the defense and possess leadership skills. If they had any success as a quarterback they are adept at knowing what the QB needs and when he needs it. They are more likely to appreciate breakdowns in QB protection or in coverage and are able to adjust in a way that the passer can notice and react to quickly.

For the most part, Edelmens are either too small for the next level or come from a run-first offense. It is my belief that there is an untapped supply of talented Edelmens in non-FBS schools. Quarterbacks with proven athletic ability and obvious leadership skills and instincts.
