Matt Barkley is among the riskiest NFL draft picks from this year's class of quarterbacks.

Since 1998, 12 quarterbacks have been selected with the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft, but the burning question about the class of 2013 is whether or not there will be any signal-callers selected in the first round. 

The Kansas City Chiefs, Arizona Cardinals and New York Jets appear to be the three franchises in dire need of a game-changing quarterback, though several others could be eyeballing a talented rookie signal-caller.

"There's a very good chance none (go in the first round)," one team executive told NFL.com's Albert Greer last week. "I don't know who the top one is—total crapshoot. Geno (Smith)? (Matt) Barkley? (Mike) Glennon? (Landry) Jones? It's a toss-up."

Note: Prospects are ranked based on the likelihood they will be drafted earlier than they should be and whether or not they will be able to make an impact for an NFL franchise as a rookie.
