I covered them all since 1998. If I had to rank them in terms of production and winning and overall value to the program, I'd start the list with Chase Daniel, undoubtedly.
1. Daniel. Best passer in team history, took MU to unseen heights.
2. Brad Smith. He made Mizzou relevant again. One of the most prolific dual-threat QBs of all time.
3. Drew Lock. Got better each season, second to Daniel in most career stats.
4. Corby Jones. The best team leader in my time on the beat. Might have won 10 games with a healthy toe in 1998.
5. James Franklin. Probably should be higher on the list but who does he pass? Durability was the only knock against him.
6. Blaine Gabbert. Great tools, produced a 10-win season.
7. Maty Mauk: Didn't put up gaudy stats but had some great moments before things unraveled in 2015.
