1. Robert Griffin III, Washington
Compared to Andrew Luck, RG3 has a few more bullets to shoot with.
With newly signed Pierre Garcon, a re-signed Fred Davis and Chris Cooley complimenting what could be a rejuvenated Santana Moss (a la Steve Smith when Cam Newton arrived in Carolina), Griffin has some options on offense. He also has a better running game (at this point in the draft) than Luck has with the Colts.
And if all else fails, Griffin has his legs to help fantasy owners.
2. Alex Smith, San Francisco
Say what you want about whether first-round pick A.J. Jenkins was a reach. But for fantasy purposes, Jenkins is a very solid receiver being added to a offensive group that already includes Vernon Davis, Randy Moss, Mario Manningham and Michael Crabtree. After seeing Smith play well against the eventual Super Bowl champion Giants in last year's NFC Championship Game, Smith's fantasy stock soars with all these added weapons.
3. Josh Freeman, Tampa Bay
Adding a guy like Doug Martin can do wonders for a quarterback who already got an early Christmas with free agent receiver Vincent Jackson and free agent guard Carl Nicks. Now with a balanced offense and more weapons than he ever had, Freeman has a chance to be the 2010 Josh Freeman instead of the 2011 Josh Freeman.
4. Andrew Luck, Indianapolis
Reggie Wayne and Austin Collie are still on board but Dallas Clark is showing his age. What's more, the Indianapolis run game is still non-existent. The Colts will need to draft an impact wide receiver to give Luck a chance for offensive success.
5. Blaine Gabbert, Jacksonville
Let's face it: Gabbert stunk last year. But perhaps a big reason for that was his lack of receiving threats. Do you recall who the Jacksonville receivers were last year? Exactly.
Don't forget Gabbert was the tenth overall pick in last year's NFL draft, so it's not like he's got nothing to offer.
Now that Gabbert has both Justin Blackmon and Laurent Robinson to join Maurice Jones-Drew, he has a big-boy offense and he could be a real sleeper pick in this year's fantasy drafts.
6. Jake Locker/Matt Hasselbeck, Tennessee
Adding big-play receiver Kendall Wright to big-play receiver Kenny Britt along with Nate Washington is a big boost to the value of whoever calls the signals for the Titans. Tennessee's quarterback still won't be any better than a fantasy QB2, but he would have more upside than other QB2s—especially if Locker gets the starting gig over Hasselbeck.
7. Kevin Kolb, Arizona
The addition of Michael Floyd helps Kolb quite a bit, considering Kolb performed better in Philadelphia with multiple passing options than he did last year in Arizona with just Larry Fitzgerald. Even so, the jury's still out on Kolb so he is ranked the lowest among the quarterbacks impacted by the draft's first day results.
8. Ryan Tannehill, Miami
Need the Dolphins to draft a couple receivers to be relevant in fantasy as even a QB2.
9. Brandon Weeden, Cleveland
