NFL Network draft expert Mike Mayock believes this year's quarterback class will surpass even the storied bunch from 1983, which featured the likes of John Elway, Dan Marino, Jim Kelly and Ken O'Brien.
"In the history of the NFL draft, there have never been eight quarterbacks taken in the first three rounds," Mayock said on "NFL Total Access" on Monday. "Even 1983, with Elway and that whole group, six went in the first round -- the seventh didn't go until the fifth round. So, we're going to have, in my opinion, a historic draft.
"We're going to have eight quarterbacks in the first three rounds. We might even have eight in the first two rounds."
