No you do not. The only requirement is that you be two years past graduating age. There have been a few players over the years drafted out of semi pro leagues, players hwo never attended college. It is a rare occasion however, but many college players join the NFL before they receive their degree.
The scouts look at the college teams for players and only 1% of them become pro. If not on a college team it would be nearly impossible to get a scout to see you play. The teams don't have an open audition day for tryouts. Stay in school.
No, it is pointless trivia.
NO you dont have to have a college degree to be in the NFL but that means two things 1 you are gonna have to go back to school to get your college degree and 2 if you dont you are going to end up working for trash pickup.
play college football and be good in it...then get drafted to the NFL and play as a QB

Yes - in theory you could go to the NFL after getting a 4 year degree from a community college. Realistically - most community colleges don't have football programs so you wouldn't be able to play college ball while going to school there. It's nearly impossible to prove your skills enough to get a chance to play in NFL without first playing some college ball.
no you don't need a degree...... wow.
