Quarterbacks underwhelm analysts at Senior Bowl

The Senior Bowl wasn't exactly a showcase of premier quarterbacks Saturday. No one looked deserved of a first-round pick.

Brooks: QB matchmaker

Bucky Brooks takes five top quarterbacks from the 2013 draft class and matches them up with QB-needy franchises. More ...

NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock said the word on Florida State quarterback E.J. Manuel is he might be a third- or fourth-round draft pick. Mayock listed five players who made money in Mobile, Ala., this week and none were quarterbacks.

The five: Central Michigan tackle Eric Fisher, Louisiana Tech receiver Quinton Patton, Kentucky guard Larry Warford, Oklahoma tackle Lane Johnson and California center Brian Schwenke.

Manuel completed 7-of-10 passes for 71 yards with a touchdown and an interception for the South. Arkansas' Tyler Wilson was 8 for 11 for 40 yards and Oklahoma's Landry Jones completed just 3-of-9 passes for 16 yards.

On the North side, Miami's Zac Dysert was 10 for 16 for 93 yards with a touchdown and an interception. N.C. State's Mike Glennon completed 8-of-16 passes for 82 yards as Syracuse's Ryan Nassib was 4 for 10 for 44 yards and threw an interception.

Mayock also noted that UConn cornerback Dwayne Gratz drew interest as a safety this week and called Rutgers linebacker Khaseem Greene a first-round pick.

The quarterbacks had an opportunity to change opinions this week and the group was underwhelming, as expected.

UPDATE: The South squad never trailed in its 21-16 win over the North. Manuel was named the game's most outstanding player.
