With so many “experts’ out there making mock drafts and predicting where players will land, we should have more of an idea of where the most highly touted players will be drafted.
However, this year, we don’t.
Patrick Peterson, Marcel Dareus, A.J. Green, Cam Newton or Blaine Gabbert could all go #1. From there, it doesn’t get any easier. The Broncos will likely have their choice of position players, whereas the Buffalo Bills will seemingly land one of the best linebackers in recent drafts.
That is, of course, assuming that Cam Newton is not still on the board… All of these options and were not even to pick #4 yet.
The Bengals will have one of the toughest choices to date: pick a quarterback because you are not sure if Carson Palmer will return, or go get a weapon such as A.J. Green to support the weak wide-receiving cast, which may not include stud Chad Ochocinco next season.
Then we come to the Arizona Cardinals. Peterson? Quinn? Gabbert? Newton even?
We’ll see on Thursday.
