NFL Draft 2013: Quarterbacks Could ‘Fall Like Logs’

Feb 24, 2013; Indianapolis, IN, USA; Florida State Seminoles quarterback E.J. Manuel (9), Syracuse Orange quarterback Ryan Nassib (10), Arizona Wildcats quarterback Mike Scott (12), West Virginia Mountaineers quarterback Geno Smith (13), Southern Utah Thunderbirds quarterback Brad Sorensen (14), Iowa Hawkeyes quarterback James Vandenberg (15), and Arkansas Razorbacks quarterback Tyler Wilson (16) stand on the field as they listen to instructions for a passing drill during the NFL Combine at Lucas Oil Stadium.

There are a lot of questions surrounding the quarterback class in the 2013 NFL Draft and where they could land on draft day. There are reports that Geno Smith could go as high as No. 2 overall to the Jacksonville Jaguars, No. 4 to the Philadelphia Eagles or No. 8 to the Buffalo Bills, but there is also some belief that those teams could look in other directions, which would cause a free fall at the quarterback position.

Outside of the top ten, there aren’t many teams that need to add a young signal-caller and many of the potential suitors in the top ten have already made moves to secure their position — Oakland traded for Matt Flynn and Arizona traded for Carson Palmer.

With very few options, some general managers believe that the quarterbacks could drop much further than anticipated in the draft.

Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter:

It’s an interesting report, especially with quarterbacks often being drafted higher than they should.

While this latest report of quarterbacks dropping has surfaced, there are also some saying that Ryan Nassib and EJ Manuel could find a home at the end of round one. Quite frankly, nobody knows what is going to happen.

This is a time where we see a lot of smokescreens from scouts and general managers around the league, so the only way that we will truly know where the quarterbacks get drafted is when we tune in to the draft in just over two weeks.

    I think Geno Smith will still go in the first round but I could see him having a Brady Quinn-like fall into the 20′s. At that point, somebody will move up and snag him, I think.

    Some of the other guys could slide pretty far though.

      Yeah, I can’t imagine a scenario where at least one QB doesn’t go top fifteen. I think ultimately two QBs will go in the first-round.
