    2. Tim Tebow, Florida (2006-09)
    Pass stats: 9,285 pass yards, 88 TD, 16 INT, 66.4%
    Rush stats: 2,947 rush yards, 57 TDs
    Skinny: One word that comes to mind is intangibles. Whether or not you blame Urban Meyer for Florida’s letdown, he let Tebow run the team. That’s Meyer’s problem, but Tebow could handle it. In 2007, he did things we hadn’t seen before in a conference where those things are not supposed to happen, when he won the Heisman. Later, he led Florida to a national championship in 2008 and was one loss away from another appearance in 2009. Tebow was a Heisman finalist three years in a row, and he scored a total of 145 (145!) career touchdowns.


    5. Chris Leak, Florida (2003-06)
    Pass stats: 11,213 yds, 88 TD, 42 INT, 61.4%
    Rush stats: 137 yds, 13 TD
    Skinny: Records are made to be broken, and Leak’s record of 895 career completions will be broken by Aaron Murray in 2013. Leak’s second all-time in career passing yardage to Georgia’s David Greene, with 11,213 yards. He’s an SEC and BCS Champion, and he’s a top five SEC quarterback during the BCS era.


    9. Rex Grossman, Florida (2000-02)
    Pass stats: 9,164 yds, 77 TD, 36 INT, 61%
    Rush stats: 6 TD
    Skinny: Grossman became the first sophomore QB in Florida history to garner first-team All-American honors in 2001. Grossman almost became the first sophomore to win the Heisman that year, but he finished as the runner up. He is fifth all time in Gator history with 9,164 yards and stands fourth with 77 touchdowns. Grossman exited Florida with a 146.77 passer rating, becoming the third most efficient passer in SEC history.

    Only Tebow and Grossman are playing in the NFL. And Leak should had been playing in the league as he is better than both of them!
