The ACC offers a wealth of talented quarterbacks entering the 2015 season, but who reigns supreme among them all?

The ACC may have lost a former Heisman Trophy winner and national champion in Jameis Winston to the top pick in the NFL Draft this spring but the conference is still deep at the position with a couple of sophomores poised for stardom and a pair of wild cards in the state of North Carolina ready to breakout.

Sure, it’s common to have two or three studs at the position in any conference during any given year, but the ACC has eight quarterbacks I believe could vie for a spot on an NFL roster when their college careers come to a close. Not to be confused, this column isn’t focusing on professional projections, rather how well they should fare this year in college in comparison to their peers.

The conference is top-heavy to start the year but the emergence of Winston’s successor at Florida State in Everett Golson could shift that perception into thinking the conference is talented enough at the top to rival the best signal-callers around the rest of the country.

Without further ado, let’s look at the 14 projected starting quarterbacks in the conference and rank them from worst to first. At the end, I encourage you to provide your opinion on what you liked, what you didn’t like and what you would change about the rankings.
