Based purely on the numbers from their best college season, who would you pick?
The first stats are from Terrelle Pryor's 2010 season.
The second are from Matt Flynn's 2007 season.
The final stats are from Tyler Wilson's 2011 season.
These are just college stats which often mean very little. For reference however, here are the 2011 stats for the rookie quarterbacks of 2012.
Statistics aside, I've lived in Ohio for a long time now, and I will be honest Terrelle Pryor never gave us Buckeye's fans anything to be overly excited about. The days of Troy Smith his predecessor were much better, and the days of his successor Braxton Miller are already off to a great start. Pryor was not a great quarterback in college, and I would be really surprised to see him change that in the NFL.
Based on statistics, I would say it would be a toss-up between Wilson and Pryor, but Flynn has NFL play to give him an advantage. I could not find exact stats from his "one game" against the Lions (A playoff team jockeying for position) with some of his starters sitting in a meaningless game so I have the stats for the 2011 season, and the same goes for Terrell's one game last season:
Based on this information, I'd take Flynn any day. But it is way too early to tell, and the stat sheet does not tell everything. I'm all for Wilson getting to start as I believe he has the most potential to be a long-term answer, but may the best man win.
