Its not that its 'soooo shocking, it can't be true' so much as it is so counter to the trend that it is hard to believe. I understand that there is no consensus #1 QB in the draft, but take your favorite guy. Do you think he is a better prospect than Tannehill? Than Gabbert? Ponder? Locker? Weedon? Tebow? All those guys were first round picks. Some of them were early first round picks but none of them were considered first rounders at this point in the process. Well, at least not by the media.

I remember the year Tebow was drafted there was a lot of talk about this. So much speculation about where he might go, but all the experts reminded us that it only took one GM to like him for him to go early. I feel like that is every prospect this year. They all have flaws and red flags. Its just going to take one GM to like Geno, just one to like Barkley, to like Wilson, Glennon, Nassib.
When you consider that along with the fact that QB is far and away the most important player on the field and the scarcity of the QB position, I can't imagine the 1st round ending without a QB coming off the board.
