College Football: Quarterback Aggregate Rating

We all know the quarterback battle is now a ‘two-man game‘ between senior Tyler Arndt and redshirt freshman Jordan Moore (and let’s not forget about senior Duke DeLancellotti), but how did it get there?

Hopefully the debut of the San Marcos Daily Record Quarterback Aggregate will break it down well enough to see why Arndt is the starter right now and how DeLancellotti and Moore can catch up.

It’s time to rank the quarterbacks 1-5 by a number of skills. At the end, we’ll add it up and average it out. Skills with an asterisk next to them are weighted heavier due to importance.

Pocket Presence
1. Tyler Arndt
2. Tyler Jones
3. Duke DeLancellotti
4. Jordan Moore
5. Fred Nixon

Analysis: Arndt and Jones let plays develop, as does DeLancellotti, but the coaching staff wants more to settle his feet and progress through reads a bit better before tucking the ball.

Scrambling
1. Jordan Moore
2. Duke DeLancellotti
3. Tyler Jones
4. Fred Nixon
5. Tyler Arndt

Analysis: Running with the ball isn’t one of Arndt’s strengths. DeLancellotti and Moore each have incredible vision when they pull it down and Jones is a close third.

Pocket Passer
1. Tyler Arndt
2. Tyler Jones
3. Duke DeLancellotti
4. Jordan Moore
5. Fred Nixon

Analysis: This goes hand-in-hand with pocket presence.

Throwing on the Run
1. Duke DeLancellotti
2. Tyler Jones
3. Jordan Moore
4. Tyler Arndt
5. Fred Nixon

Analysis: DeLancellotti is in a class of his own when rolling out.

Running the Option/Zone Read
1. Jordan Moore
2. Duke DeLancellotti
3. Tyler Arndt
4. Tyler Jones
5. Fred Nixon

Analysis: Moore should be at the top after spending time in the Naval Academy system. DeLancellotti is clean with his reads and Arndt is getting better each day (Edit: Switched Arndt and Jones).

Knowledge of the Playbook*
1. Tyler Arndt
2. Jordan Moore
3. Duke DeLancellotti
4. Fred Nixon
5. Tyler Jones

Analysis: Goes with experience.

Ability to Limit Turnovers*
1. Tyler Arndt
2. Duke DeLancellotti
3. Tyler Jones
4. Jordan Moore
5. Fred Nixon

Analysis: Arndt hasn’t thrown an interception yet this fall and only put the ball on the ground once during the option. Moore had a three-day stretch where he threw an interception each practice.

Consistency*
1. Tyler Arndt
2. Jordan Moore
3. Duke DeLancellotti
4. Tyler Jones
5. Fred Nixon

Analysis: Arndt is by far the most consistent quarterback, followed by Moore. DeLancellotti is good when he gets snaps and is making up ground after an inconsistent spring.

Quarterback Aggregate Rating
1. Tyler Arndt – 1.8
2. Duke DeLancellotti – 2.4
3. Jordan Moore – 2.6
4. Tyler Jones – 3.4
5. Fred Nixon – 4.7

  2. Based on the ratings it looks like duke should start.. Especially with arndt being fourth on the zone read.. Which is absolutely critical to our offense.. While duke isn’t 1st on anything he isn’t last either .

    This is what concerns me with Moore. If he can’t take care of the ball I don’t want to see him start. Good coverage so far this year Tyler. Keep it up.
