Report: Quarterbacks falling on 2014 NFL Draft boards

Are the top quarterbacks in the 2014 NFL Draft seeing their stock drop at a rapid rate as draft day approaches? That’s the case according to ProFootballTalk’s Mike Florio. I have also been told some of the teams at the top of the draft aren’t enamored with the quarterback options in this draft, but I’m not sure how far they will fall.

2014 NFL DraftFour of the teams with the top five picks are looking for quarterbacks, but to select a signal-caller in the first round, they would have to be convinced that guy was far better than what they could get at the top of the second round. There might not be a high-end quarterback available this year, but the class does have depth at that position.

According to other reports, the Oakland Raiders, Houston Texans, Cleveland Browns and Jacksonville Jaguars could all wind up passing on quarterbacks in the first round. I don’t think that all of them will opt against taking a quarterback, but a few of them certainly could.

We’ve already heard that Louisville’s Teddy Bridgewater’s stock is dropping thanks to lackluster private workouts. Meanwhile, plenty of scouts aren’t sold on Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel or Central Florida’s Blake Bortles.

I doubt any of those three guys will last until the second round, but with guys like Derek Carr, A.J. McCarron and Jimmy Garoppolo likely to fall that far, some teams at the top may opt to wait to get their quarterback.

Basically the problem is that there isn’t an Andrew Luck-type guy available this year and all of the quarterbacks have their flaws. Taking any of those guys with a top five pick would be a risk, and some general managers could decide not to gamble.

  1. I still think McCarron is going to surprise; he’ll be the steal amoung the quarterbacks. He’s very smart, and he’ll work very hard to improve his physical abilities. I look for Manziel’s stock to rise too; he has the “it” factor, and he’ll help fill the seats which means $$$$$.
