Jeremiah was embedded at last month's Senior Bowl to eye this year's crop of quarterback prospects up close. After what he saw, Jeremiah concluded that none of the signal-callers on hand deserved a first-round grade. Only West Virgina's Geno Smith -- a no-show for Senior Bowl week -- made the cut in Jeremiah's latest mock.
Jeremiah has Kansas City nabbing Smith with the first overall pick, assuming the Chiefs re-sign offensive tackle Branden Albert. If they don't get that done, Jeremiah believes Andy Reid will select Texas A&M tackle Luke Joeckel.
Free-agent signings and roster shuffling can throw draft needs into the blender, and additional passers are likely to creep into the first round. These early mock drafts forecast where players should go. Quarterback-desperate general managers tend to make mincemeat of this process come April.
Matt Barkley, Ryan Nassib and Tyler Wilson could ascend this spring -- we also like EJ Manuel, although he's raw. If the first round passes without a handful of these players off the board, expect a fever dream of quarterback picks in Round Two. Teams will not allow these young arms to stray far come April.
