What Good Is A Five-Star Quarterback, Anyway?

From LSU blog And The Valley Shook's excellent scouting report on new quarterback Gunner Kiel, the nation's top pro-style QB recruit, a list of Kiel's brethren in five-starred pro-styledness:

2012: Gunner Kiel
2009: Matt Barkley, Garrett Gilbert
2008: Blaine Gabbert, Dayne Crist
2007: Jimmy Clausen, Ryan Mallett
2006: Matthew Stafford, Mitch Mustain
2005: Mark Sanchez
2004: Rhett Bomar, Anthony Morelli, Chad Henne
2003: Kyle Wright
2002: Ben Olson, Trent Edwards

So far the 2006 class boasts the sharpest juxtaposition, but 2009's could overtake it yet.
