Predicting Big 10 Football's Top 5 QBs of 2014

The Big 10 sees some of the most athletic quarterbacks and all-around fiercest competitors when these quarterbacks take the field on Saturdays, and it's bound to be another eventful season for the boys under center. So forget about where they stand right now; let's see how things will look at the end of the season.

5. Connor Cook - Michigan State

Connor Cook isn't the flashiest of quarterbacks, but he's reliable and has a quality football mind. Rarely does he make any sort of critical mistake. By the end of this season, he'll have the respect of most.

4. Mitch Leidner - Minnesota

Mitch Leidner is a quarterback you really need to keep an eye on. Especially with the departure of Philip Nelson, Leidner will have to step up for the Gophers, and he's more than capable of becoming a playmaker in that offense.

3. Nate Sudfeld - Indiana

I've said it before, and I'll say it again -- Indiana's offense is almost off the charts. This season, it's going to start with the play of Nate Sudfeld. He was splitting time with Tre Roberson a year ago, but I expect to see Sudfeld take over in 2014.

2. Devin Gardner - Michigan

Devin Gardner had a fantastic individual 2013 season; it was just masked by subpar numbers and performance from the rest of the offense. Gardner is bound to begin, and end at or near the top of this list.

1. Braxton Miller - Ohio State

Shocker, right? I don't see a reason for Braxton Miller to not be the top quarterback in the Big 10 at the end of this season. He possesses all the talent in the world and has a shining light contributors surrounding him. What's not to admire?
