There is no position more important to an NFL team than that of quarterback, which makes it the premium position of each and every NFL draft.
The No. 1 overall pick in each NFL draft is usually a quarterback, and especially in recent years, the first round has been loaded with quarterbacks, often times with signal-callers selected way earlier than they should have been.
Fortunately for teams who may need quarterbacks in the 2013 NFL draft, this year’s quarterback class has the potential to be as strong at the top and deeper than last year’s class, which featured Stanford’s Andrew Luck and Baylor’s Robert Griffin III, the 2012 NFL draft’s top two selections.
How strong the class actually becomes will depend upon the development of its top seniors and whether breakout junior quarterbacks declare one year early to begin their NFL careers.
Who are the top prospects that could make 2013 a “draft of the quarterback”?
The following slides highlight the best signal-callers whose names could be called next April.
