Pro Football Focus (PFF) numbers go back to 2014, and this offseason we’ll take a look at each position at Virginia Tech and use the PFF numbers to determine top players, look at trends, point out statistical anomalies, etc.  Today we’ll get things started with a look at the quarterback position.

It’s important to use player grades when evaluating, but at the same time we have to take each individual and the team he played for on a case-by-case basis.  Some grades tell the whole story, while others may not.  For example, a quarterback’s grade is going to be affected sometimes by the talent at running back and the establishment of a running game.  Hendon Hooker graded out very well when the Hokies ran for 250 yards and he only had to throw the ball 10-15 times a game.  Other quarterbacks on that list, like Michael Brewer and Josh Jackson, were better natural passers than Hooker but had no such running game to help them out.
