Where does Jared Goff rank among all college football players?
There's little doubt that Cal QB Jared Goff is one of the best college football players in the entire country. But is he a top-10 player? A top-5 player?
Pro Football Focus released its top 10 college football players through six weeks of play and Goff ranks No. 4 on the list.
Here's the explanation from PFF:
“I know, I know, he is coming off a bad performance in his first real showcase game of the season versus Utah, recording his first negative game grade and throwing five interceptions. But he’s still our top-graded quarterback in the country, by a comfortable margin, and even when you factor in the loss to the Utes his numbers jump off the screen. He’s been great on downfield throws, completing 49 of 78 (63 percent) passes of 10-plus yards for 1,065 yards, 12 touchdowns and just five interceptions. His numbers against pressure took a hit after the Utah loss, during which he threw all five of his picks when facing pressure, but he has still demonstrated the ability to make difficult passes from the QB position.”
