NORTH CAROLINA (BASN) — There were four big named quarterbacks selected in the 2010 NFL Draft.

There was Colt McCoy, the “Good Ol’ Boy” from the University of Texas, who was drafted in the second round (85th overall) by the Cleveland Brown.

Jimmy Clausen, the” Bar Room Brawler” from the University of Notre Dame, who was also selected in the second round (48th overall) by the Carolina Panthers

Tim Tebow, the “Christian on a Mission ” from the University of Florida, who was surprisingly selected in the first round (25th overall) by the Denver Bronco.

And Sam Bradford, the “Cherokee Brad Pitt” from the University of Oklahoma, who was the No. 1 overall pick of the St.Louis Rams.

But despite being drafted, critics and fans alike are still critiquing these high-paid rookie quarterbacks’ while leaving no wiggle room for error.

For instance, many people say all of these quarterbacks are too frail and too weak.

While others suggest that they all lack the necessary physical and mental toughness to compete in the NFL on Sunday.

For example, scouts still question Tebow’s mechanics.

Clausen’s attitude. McCoy’s height.And Bradford ‘s shoulder.

Local sportswriters, however have already starting to compare Bradford to Montana .

Tebow to Steve Young. McCoy to Drew Brees. And Clausen to Kerry Collins.

But sports bloggers seem to simplify this quarterback discussion, simply by saying: Clausen is Irish.Tebow is Christian.

McCoy is a Cowboy. And Bradford is an Indian.

However, with that said, Tebow is getting all the attention. According to reports, his No.15 jersey is the best-selling rookie jersey ever on the website NFLshop.com.

Not surprisingly, 30 percent of the orders have come out the state of Florida .

But with all of this evaluation, speculation and jersey sales, the real question still remains, which one of these four rookie quarterbacks will make the greatest impact in the NFL.

The answer is:

We want know until they all put their hands under center and have that football snapped in their hands while taking that dreaded three-step drop as they try to read defensive schemes in a matter of seconds before avoiding pressure from the backside linebacker and throw a perfect sparrow for a touchdown.

Oh, I can’t wait.
