A common theme in our staff’s predictions for the 2013 season in the Mountain West was the conference’s surprising depth. That all starts with the guys under center. It’s not a stretch to say the MWC may have the best collection of quarterbacks in the country.
There’s productivity for miles, with four returning field generals who finished in the top 20 nationally in passer rating. The league also boasts dual threats such as Utah State’s Chuckie Keeton and Nevada’s Cody Fajardo who can just as easily make plays with their feet as their arms.
Leaving guys like Keeton and David Fales of San Jose State off of CBR’s 2013 Preseason All-Mountain West Team sucks, but there can be only QB. We’re going with Fresno State senior Derek Carr (344-of-511 pass attempts, 4,104 passing yards, 37 touchdown passes and 7 interceptions in 2012). Former No. 1 overall NFL draft pick David Carr’s baby brother leads a group of five Bulldogs to make the squad.no comments
