6. Michigan: Dylan McCaffrey, Joe Milton, Cade McNamara

Michigan is tough to rank because they don't have a clear starter yet. McCaffery is probably the favorite, though Milton is a real threat.  Still, they are all pretty strong recruits, and Michigan's system has gotten quarterback friendly, so whoever starts should be pretty good.  But not sure who that will be yet.  Also a question as to when a starter would be named and whether the other guy would leave.
I think McCaffrey is the guy. His ceiling is lower than Milton’s but his floor is a lot higher. Milton is a physical specimen but raw. I just don’t trust Harbaugh to refine a QB. McCaffrey was pretty polished coming in, having gone to a big-time prep school and coming from an NFL royalty family.

Milton with Harbaugh = bleh. Milton with someone like Ryan Day or Lincoln Riley- now you might have something. Milton really is a freaking specimen. His arm is out of this world and he’s 6’5” pushing 250 and he’s very mobile.

That’s Milton as a Jr in high school. The arm strength is unreal.

With QB I'm not sure it matters.  If your starter goes down, you are usually screwed, no matter how "good" your backup is.

Yeah, yeah, yeah... If you recruit like Urban Meyer, Nick Saban, or Dabo Swinney, you can survive the loss of your starting QB.

We're talking about the OTHER 127 FBS teams.

Didn't MSU register some sorta monster upset with their back up QB that catapulted them into the playoffs?

Yeah, thanks to a modified game plan that the coaches were so confident in working a second time that they just let Connor Cook see what he could do trying to pass against Bama's defense with a shoulder where he was topping out at about 20 yards downfield.

I'm not saying backup quarterback is meaningless, just when it comes to unit rankings, you are going off the #1 guy.  If I said right now you were building a roster, and you could have any set of QBs in the conference, I don't care who Ohio State's backup QBs are, you're taking OSU, because then you easily have the #1 guy.  It could be Justin Fields, and three of us, and I'd pick it.

Maryland might just pick the three of us

I've already called Maryland to let them know I wouldn't play for them.

If you rated teams nationally solely on their QB room, you'd be fairly close to rating them as complete teams.

11. Iowa: Spencer Petras, Peyton Mansell

Nate Stanley is finally gone, leading to some new Iowa QB play.  Your guess is as good as mine here.
Peyton Mansell transferred to Abilene(?). Backups will be RS Freshman Alex Padilla and incoming Freshman Deuce Hogan. It's hard to tell what will come of it. Petras sounds to be decent and will probably have the best collective skill position talent Iowa has seen in a while.

Deuce Hogan has to be a name a celebrity checks into a hotel under

People talk a lot about Jack Coan and Graham Mertz in Madison. 

Don't sleep on Chase Wolf.
