Front offices around the NFL have spoken loud and clear about their feelings on this year's class of quarterback prospects.
Brooks: The best players left
It shouldn't take long for teams to start snatching up passers on Saturday:
» The Jacksonville Jaguars own the first pick of the fourth round (at No. 98), and that's where a quarterback like USC's Matt Barkley might finally come off the board. We expect his wait to continue. NFL.com's Ian Rapoport has reported for days that the Jaguars are high on Syracuse's Ryan Nassib. The Jaguars gambled on Friday, passing on Nassib in favor of safety John Cyprien and cornerback Dwayne Gratz. Now, it's time to pounce.
» The Raiders have just two passers -- Matt Flynn and Terrelle Pryor -- on the roster, meaning Oakland isn't done gathering competition under center. The Raiders own the third selection in Round 4 (No. 100 overall), but don't pick again until the sixth round. If you're looking to grab a tangible prospect -- Barkley, Nassib, maybe Tyler Wilson out of Arkansas -- waiting another two rounds is risky.
» The Pittsburgh Steelers have hinted at drafting a quarterback since early winter. If passers start disappearing early on Saturday, keep an eye on the Steelers at No. 115. Kevin Colbert and Co. dined last month with Tyler Bray and like the 6-foot-6 passer out of Tennessee. Will dinner lead to something more?
Darlington: Drama-filled Round 1
UPDATE: Four quarterbacks were selected in the NFL draft's fourth round. The Philadelphia Eagles traded up to the first pick in the fourth round (No. 98 overall) to select Barkley. After making a trade with the Cardinals, the New York Giants selected Nassib at No. 110 overall. Two picks later, the Raiders nabbed Wilson. Oklahoma's Landry Jones was the final quarterback taken in the round, going No. 115 overall to the Steelers.
