I am not talking about the 2018 QB draft class, but the entire 2017 college football QB's, there is a ton of talent everywhere, and there will inevitably be a few freshman, and new starters who play well.  

The SEC usually has a weak group of QB's, but when you go down the list it's pretty impressive.  
Alabama- Jalen Hurts
Auburn- Jarrett Stidham
Ole Miss- Shea Patterson
Miss St- Nick Fitzgerald
LSU- Danny Etling
Arkansas- Antonio Allen
Vandy- Kyle Shurmer
Mizzou- Drew Lock
South Carolina- Jake Bently
Georgia- Jacob Eason
USC- Sam Darnold
Oregon- Justin Herbert
Washington st- Luke Falk
Washington- Jake Browning
UCLA- Josh Rosen
Wyoming- Josh Allen
Colorado- Steven Montez
Colorado State- Nick Stevens
Penn St- Trace McSorley
Northwestern- Clayton Thorson
Ohio St- JT Barrett
Michigan- Wilton Speight
Florida State- Deondre Francois
Louisville- Lamar Jackson
Oklahoma- Baker Mayfield
West Virginia- Will Grier
Ok State- Mason Rudolph
Texas- Shane Bouchele
Houston- Kyle Allen
Purdue- David Blough
Syracuse- Eric Dungey
K State- Jesse Ertz
Stanford- Keller Chryst
Memphis- Riley Ferguson
South Florida- Flowers
Navy- Will Worth
Duke- Daniel Jones
Texas Tech- Nik Shimiek

As Double Trouble stated:

The SEC has a stable of good quarterbacks.

Two guys I really like are at Auburn and Ole Miss.

This is going to be a fun season in the Southeastern Conference.

 The Pac-12 is certainly loaded.

Agee Mugg, heck just look at Los Angeles alone.

USC has Sam Darnold and cross town UCLA has Josh Rosen.

I'm interested to see if Alabama transfer Blake Barnett can win the Arizona State job.  Kid can throw it.

Alabama- Jalen Hurts        look for him to run more...maybe 1k yds. Looks to be a manchild.....

Auburn- Jarrett Stidham
Ole Miss- Shea Patterson
Miss St- Nick Fitzgerald

LSU- Danny Etling             Not buying this guy at all......

Arkansas- Antonio Allen
Vandy- Kyle Shurmer

Mizzou- Drew Lock           Name has a ring to it...but performance is spotty against good competition

South Carolina- Jake Bently

Georgia- Jacob Eason        He's big......

USC- Sam Darnold          This guy can play, IMO the best in the country.

Oregon- Justin Herbert     Oregon is a likely trainwreck again this season.

Washington st- Luke Falk   I like him...but if there ever was a system QB, he is it.

Washington- Jake Browning    Continued growth will make this guy elite.

UCLA- Josh Rosen          A few early INT's and the media will place "the Rosen one" in the BUST category.

Wyoming- Josh Allen
Colorado- Steven Montez
Colorado State- Nick Stevens

Penn St- Trace McSorley    He's an old school gunslinger. For gunslingers, the mistakes usually outweigh the big plays.
 
Northwestern- Clayton Thorson   Not sold at all on this guy

Ohio St- JT Barrett        He's a gamer.....but OSU has to get the passing game going from the outside in.

Michigan- Wilton Speight      Harbaugh makes QBs better....this guy will look like a pro in 2017.

Florida State- Deondre Francois     Great raw talent.

Louisville- Lamar Jackson      Heisman jinx. Running hurts...look for less of it this year.

Oklahoma- Baker Mayfield     Bunches of TDs and YDS...but will fold in the big one.

West Virginia- Will Grier         Holgerson's O is good.....if he can execute WVU will be way better than last year.

Ok State- Mason Rudolph      I have no opinion. Watched him a bunch, but cannot seem to get a read on what he is all about.

Texas- Shane Bouchele       If there ever was a spot for a sophomore jinx, this is it. Coaching and scheme change.

Houston- Kyle Allen

Purdue- David Blough        I like him, but way too many mistakes.

Syracuse- Eric Dungey

K State- Jesse Ertz           Good runner, will excel in ball control.

Stanford- Keller Chryst      Needs to stay healthy....lots of tools and a solid player.

Memphis- Riley Ferguson
South Florida- Flowers
Navy- Will Worth
Duke- Daniel Jones

Texas Tech- Nik Shimiek      The air apparent for Kingsbury's last season?

Not sure of the kid's name, but the young guy for Baylor has an absolute pipe bomb for an arm.....

Yea, early reports are Jalen Hurts might actually lose his starting job to Tua Tagovailioa at Alabama... If it happens, I imagine it will be a few games into the season.

Clemson is going to be a very good team if they can figure out who is going to be there QB.  Their freshman QB Hunter Johnson who was the #1 ranked QB in the country looks like he's going to be very good, but he probably needs a couple of years, to get bigger, more confident. The problem for Johnson is that the #1 ranked player in the 2018 class, is also a QB, but this kid looks like a day 1 heisman candidate..

Most average fans have never heard of Wyoming's Josh Allen.  Allen is 6-5, 225 pound QB who accounted for 3,726 yards of total offense last year.  If he can get help from some new receivers, he should put up some big numbers again for the Cowboys.

Guarantee you NFL scouts know who he is.
