The official unofficial 2011 QB list (Nate Davis was our future)

According to Barrows, here is the list of available QBs broken down via by acquisition vehicles identified by Trent Baalke on ProFootballTalk Live. Notably, Mike Florio wrongly identifies Troy Smith as "currently on the roster" but may have correctly identified Baalke's implication Troy Smith is done as a 49er.  Barrows also broke the news Nate Davis has followed Kentwan Balmer and rejoined an organization with Scot McCloughan in the front office.

Draft:
1. Cam Newton, Auburn
2. Jake Locker, Washington
3. Blaine Gabbert, Missouri
4. Ryan Mallett, Arkansas
5. Christian Ponder, Florida State
6. Andy Dalton, TCU

Free agency (*restricted and unrestricted):
1. Matt Hasselbeck
2. Marc Bulger
3. Seneca Wallace
4. Matt Leinart ®
5. Bruce Gradkowski ®
6. Matt Moore ®
7. Troy Smith ®
8. ** Donovan McNabb
9. ** Vince Young
10. Alex Smith

Trade:
1. Kevin Kolb, Philadelphia
2. Kyle Orton, Denver
3. Carson Palmer, Cincinnati
4. Josh Johnson, Tampa Bay

* Labor uncertainty will affect their restricted/unrestricted FA status

** Potential candidates for release from their current team

The big questions now are:

  • Which rookie QB does Harbaugh believe he can best mold into a franchise QB and will said prospect be available in the late first/early second round for a trade
  • Is Carson Palmer, Kevin Kolb and/or Kyle Orton available for a 3rd round pick or will their acquisition be cost-prohibitive?
  • Will Mike Shanahan cut Donovan McNabb before training camp?
  • Is Josh Johnson available for a late round pick?  
  • Can a NFC West veteran castaway (Matt Hasselbeck, Marc Bulger) channel Kurt Warner circa 2005?

What do you all think?
