In a surprising move, Oregon junior QB Darron Thomas declared for the draft Saturday evening. While Thomas led the Ducks to a Rose Bowl win over Wisconsin this season, he is just not an NFL QB. Unless a team feels it can fix Thomas' herky-jerky mechanics and improve his accuracy, he will likely be waiting for a phone call sometime after the draft.

With that said, here's my Top 10 QB rankings. The Eagles may be interested in someone like Arizona's Nick Foles or Texas A&M's Ryan Tannehill if they fall to the top of the second round.

1. Andrew Luck - Stanford
Best QB prospect since Peyton Manning.

2. Robert Griffin III - Baylor
Athletic, cerebral, and just plain interesting guy.

3. Ryan Tannehill - Texas A&M
The former WR is still learning but has a big upside.

4. Brandon Weeden - Oklahoma State
Older prospect, but has the tools and leadership qualities to succeed.

5. Nick Foles - Arizona
Big prospect and prototype pocket passer. Still has to work out some kinks.

6. Kellen Moore - Boise State
Small QB, but accurate and smart.

7. Brock Osweiler - Arizona State
Huge QB (6-8) who used to play basketball. Surprisingly good mobility.

8. Kirk Cousins - Michigan State
Gritty leader who will probably be a fine backup in the NFL.

9. Chandler Harnish - Northern Illinois
Solidly built, Harnish is fiery and can run.

10. Ryan Lindley - San Diego State
Great size and arm, but needs some work on his mechanics.
