Matching the 2011 QB Draft Class with TV Sitcom Stars

I thought the mock draft coverage was getting out of hand, so I went a different angle today. Thanks to Parks Smith for the assist. 

QB Prospect TV Star Description
Cam Newton
Tracy Jordan - 30 Rock
I don't think this needs an explanation.
Ryan Mallett
Cody Lambert -Step by Step
Big, dumb, and dabbled with drugs.

Jake Locker


Theo Huxtable - Cosby Show


The kid has physical skills, but he's got issues that continually make you question what the hell is going on.
Blaine Gabbert
Zach Morris - Saved by the Bell
Dreamy blonde hair and excels to the top by any means necessary. He's not the smartest or most physically gifted guy, but dammit he might be the first playa to win that top $$$$$ off the board.
Christian Ponder
John Moxon - Varsity Blues

OK, this isn't a TV show but Van Der Beek was a stud on Ken Meringolo's still-favorite show, Dawson's Creek.

Ponder is an intellectual guy that has his study habits and team priorities in check. The ultimate teammate.

Colin Kaepernick
Air Bud

Is there anything Kaepernick physically can't do? Kaepernick was nominated for all state in football, basketball, and baseball his senior year in High School. He reportedly threw a 94 mph baseball in HS and was listed as MLB draft prospect n 2006.

As you can see in the picture, football was his passion.

Andy Dalton
Danny Bonaduce

I really got nothing except for the ginger thing.

I'll make it up with a stat for you: On September 4, 2010, Dalton passed Redskins' legend, Sammy Baugh, as TCU's all-time win leader with his 30th win.
