NFL Draft: Where the Top QB's will land?
This quarterback class may not have the star power of Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III at the top of the draft, but this is a deep and talented group of quarterbacks, many of whom may become starters. There may actually be just as many starters from this class as the famed class of last year.
Geno Smith- Cleveland Browns
The Browns are going to trade back for a team looking for one of the three elite tackles, somewhere between 10-13 and take Geno Smith. He is the quarterback of the future for the Browns and a nice fit in their offense.
Ryan Nassib- Buffalo Bills
Many have the Bills drafting Ryan Nassib 8th overall, but that is simply too high for the Syracuse quarterback. It is well known that he is the choice of the organization, as he played for their new head coach in college. This is a logical fit, but the Bills will trade back into the first round somewhere in the high 20's-low 30's and grab Nassib, after drafting either Chance Warmack or Jonathon Cooper at 8th overall to fill a big need at guard.
Matt Barkley- Jacksonville Jaguars
Matt Barkley will be the first pick in the second round and will go to Jacksonville. The Jaguars may prefer Smith and Nassib, but they are so desperate for a quarterback that they will take Barkley if he is available at 33. He is an instant starter and franchise quarterback and should be the best of the bunch, regardless of his critics.
EJ Manuel- Philadelphia Eagles
The Eagles will patiently wait until the beginning of the second round and draft Manuel who should be sitting there when their second pick comes up. He is the perfect fit for the Eagles' offense and will start after Michael Vick plays his last year in Philly and since he will probably be injured sometime during the season, Manuel will get starts as a rookie. Tyler Bray- Oakland Raiders
He has a powerful arm making him the big arm quarterback the Raiders will fall in love with and will be available for them to select in the third round.
Mike Glennon- Arizona Cardinals
Glennon is a nice fit in the Cardinals' high flying offense and after a year or two backing up Carson Palmer, the raw but gifted quarterback will be their franchise quarterback. They will take him in the third round.
Landry Jones- Dallas Cowboys
The Cowboys need a successor to Tony Romo and will grab the polished 4-year Oklahoma product who will one day be their starting quarterback or at least an excellent long-term starter. They will take him in the fourth round.
Zac Dysert- New York Jets
The Jets seem to really want the Miami of Ohio prospect and expect the team to take him sometime between the 4-5th round.
