Thursday night's first round of the 2013 NFL Draft was ugly for the class of signal-callers, as only one quarterback was deemed worthy of selection.
Outside of Smith, few of the remaining quarterbacks line up as a fit for Kelly's up-tempo attack. Florida State's EJ Manuel was selected by the Buffalo Bills at No. 16, removing one of the only quarterbacks with read-option experience. Matt Scott is a dark-horse for Philly, but burning a second-round pick on the Arizona project would be outrageous.

The Jets also had eyes for Manuel, but their West Coast attack relies less on freakish mobility and more on a reliable precision passer who can direct an attack without butt-fumbling away the season.
Grabbing Nassib would be an intriguing development for Gang Green, considering he was bypassed by Buffalo's Doug Marrone, his former college coach. Matt Barkley, the USC prospect who fell like a rock during the pre-draft season, is another option for teams looking to add an arm to the mix.
