Bleacher Report's Brent Sobleski believes Georgia's Carson Beck and Colorado football QB Shedeur Sanders are the two QBs NFL teams with uncertain situations under center will have on the top of their minds during the 2024 season.

With that said, Sobleski seemed to indicate that he preferred the top of the 2024 class (Caleb Williams, Jayden Daniels, Drake Maye), the depth (Michael Penix Jr., JJ McCarthy, Bo Nix), or both ahead of the 2025 class.

"While the 2025 class doesn't carry the same panache at this year's quarterback crop does, multiple options are in play as future first-round selections, with Georgia's Carson Beck and Colorado's Shedeur Sanders driving discussions," Sobleski wrote.

One Pac-12 coach came out and called Shedeur worse than at least three QBs in the top 12 this past April.

"I was more impressed with Shedeur than I thought I was gonna be," a former Pac-12 head coach told The Athletic's Bruce Feldman). "But I didn't think he was as good as some of the other (Pac-12) quarterbacks we saw, like (Michael) Penix and Caleb (Williams) and (Bo) Nix. But I will say, it was hard to tell with how much pressure he was under. He got pummeled. That was as hard as it gets, but if they can keep him upright, he can make plays and extend plays. I do think it'll be a better evaluation this year of what he can really do."

Colorado football QB Shedeur Sanders slotted at No. 3 signal-caller in 2025 NFL draft

FanSided's John Buhler has Shedeur behind both Beck and Texas's Quinn Ewers on his QB whiteboard, with Alabama's Jalen Milroe and Notre Dame's Riley Leonard behind him. It's a fair guess to have Milroe and Ewers in the top 10 in 2025 given fellow College Football Playoff QBs Penix and McCarthy being top-10 picks in 2024.

That Shedeur is listed among these players is a testament to his potential considering Colorado's 2023 struggles and the unlikelihood he'll be competing for a championship like Ewers and Beck, at the very least, this Fall
