There’s a very good possibility that the three star-studded quarterbacks in this year’s NFL Draft–Teddy Bridgewater, Johnny Manziel and Blake Bortles–could all be selected within the top 10. While this is likely to happen, that doesn’t necessarily mean that they will all see the field for their respective teams in 2014.
If it was up to former NFL executive and current ESPN analyst Bill Polian, none of them would see the field, because as he told Sirius XM Radio on Thursday, none of them are ready, in his opinion.
Bill Polian: I don’t think any of these QB’s are NFL ready right now and I think all of them should sit for at least a year. #JohnnyManziel

With these three and some of the teams in the top 10 that have immediate needs at QB, this scenario is highly unlikely, but he does maybe bring up a good point.
All three have respective question marks surrounding them, questions that could be answered by some NFL-level coaching over time.
