I brought this up because ESPN radio this morning was on the topic of QBs rising and jumping into the top 12 because of the number of teams needing to make splash. Mentioned this draft could see the same type of movement we saw with the 2011 draft when Locker, Gabbert and Ponder were off the board in the first 12 picks. None of those guys were a lock to go that high.
Since we need help and don't need a QB, we have to hope a few teams roll the dice on a QB before we pick. Who are the most likely candidates?
It looks like Geno Smith is inked in the top 10. Here are my dark horses to go in the top 14; I think there's a good chance at least 3 of these guys go before the Saints pick:
Matt Barkley...some team will bite on the USC mystique.
Ryan Nassib...obvious connection with the Bills coach.
E.J. Manuel...Some team will hope for the next RGIII/Russell Wilson/Kaepernick.
Tyler Wilson...big arm on a team that was as lost as Charlie Sheen.
Mike Glennon...The kid is getting a lot of attention...that usually equates to a run up the board.
Tyler Bray...has shown ability in spite of poor coaching.
Who do you think will make a jump???
