Crazy thing is that only two of those QBs were really elite.

Strongest arm, might be Stephen Morris. Did it always go where you wanted it to? No, but he could throw a football into tomorrow off his back foot.
But since the question asked for best arm, I'd say the HOFer in Jim Kelly. He rode his arm to a HOF career, none of the others did or will.

Testerverde's arm at UM is legendary...

Everytime I hear "He has a Howitzer for an arm," I chuckle. A pure howitzer (not the later Gun-Howitzers, like an M110A2) like a 75mm Pack Howitzer, this definition applies:

how·itz·er
ˈhouətsər/
noun
  1. a short gun for firing shells on high trajectories at low velocities.


    Sounds like Jacory Harris...

That Pass Jacory threw to Benjamin in 09 was Top 5 in UM History...

I was a fan of Covington. I was in the end zone at Doak when he got thrown into the goal post. Between that beating and UCLA he earned his Cane card.

I may be crazy/mistaken, but didn't Costa have rep for having a big arm?

Go Canes!

Covington was a solid QB for us - just happened to play when we had teams that weren't as competitive if I have the years right.

And he may have been the 1st LA-area QB we had - and the first starter.

It just isn't Miami unless we have a QB on the roster from somewhere in California.

Think DMoney’s last podcast said Morris had top 5 velocity in NFL history or something. Maybe I’m wrong.
