NFL Draft: Quarterbacks By The Numbers

Share

- Quarterbacks set the tone in this spring's NFL Draft, just like they do in many years. NY needs a back-up plan for when Eli Manning decides to call it quits.

It's that simple when you are coming off a 3-13 season and Manning is 37 years old.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Anyone who thinks the draft pundits and even some team general managers have no clue what will happen in Thursday's opening round of the draft should talk to the guys likely to get selected early. Here's how to watch NFL Draft coverage in the UK. He is the best overall player and will make quarterbacks shake in their shoes.

While much has been made about Josh Allen going first overall, my gut says that the Browns will stick with the safer, more refined option in Darnold.

It was a big price. He was the MVP of the Super Bowl XXXIX victory over the Philadelphia Eagles with 11 receptions for 133 yards.

Allen developed an immediate bond with new offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates, describing him as a "great dude", and said new Giants coach Pat Shurmur and offensive coordinator Mike Shula are "fantastic people" who have "a firm grasp of what's going on".

Acknowledging having met with each of the six top-rated quarterback prospects, Beane will go as far as saying: "One of our main jobs as a GM is to find a franchise quarterback". It's a five-year mistake. This is a slight reach but Phillips has the big, thick frame that the Browns need.

The Browns, who limped to a 0-16 mark a year ago and are 1-31 in the last two seasons, haven't fared well when selecting a quarterback with their first-round pick.

The following slides will detail just one possible scenario complete with major draft day trades as well as a few surprising selections. Cleveland will hope that he can give them a centerpiece running back with the ability to be a dominant force in the passing game as well; there are other directions they could go with this pick, including trading down for the right price, but Barkley does seem to be the popular choice to be the first position player off the board.

Accumulating more picks, especially in the later rounds, certainly helps a team's chances of adding a solid contributor. Gettleman needs some inside linebackers. He signed tackle Matt Kalil as a veteran free agent and guard Andrew Norwell as an undrafted college player while drafting guard Trai Turner and tackle Daryl Williams in his time with the Panthers.

188th overall pick. Luke Falk- Quarterback- Washington State- Before everyone screams "don't take two quarterbacks" it's important to remember the Browns have to nail this position on the depth chart.
