Well, it's about that time. Most NFL teams have had their bye weeks already, and many have gotten their first eight games of the year in. With that, the picture of what they have and what they need is becoming more and more clear.
The NFL season's midway point is always a great time to compile a mock for the following year's upcoming draft. The draft order, once again provided by Great Blue North, is based exclusively on team records and strength of schedule at this point in the season.
There is no more polarizing position in any draft than that of quarterback, and this year is no different. However, it is a very uncommon theme in 2013. Last year, there were a half-dozen quarterbacks being tossed around as potential first-round picks. However, all but one failed to be selected in the opening round come April.
This year it is quite the contrary. Going into the year, the only quarterback anyone wanted to talk about as a first-round pick was Louisville's Teddy Bridgewater. However, as the season has progressed, more and more names are appearing as potential top-32 picks.
So, with that, this mock draft update is a "Quarterback-a-Palooza," as every quarterback being labeled as a first-round pick has found their way into the round.
Keep in mind, I don't endorse all these players being selected where they are slotted, but never let it be said that I don't give the reader what they want—and what you have all said is that you want more quarterbacks!
