If you are new to the NFL draft, this time of year must seem like utter chaos. Everyone with an opinion just can’t wait to share it.

However, for draft fans, this is our favorite time of the year.

Hours of reviewing games, breaking down prospects and conducting analysis is building toward May 8 when we find out where we stand compared to the 32 NFL franchises. If you are trying to find consensus, you are in the wrong place.

The one position that is always among the most contested is quarterback. 2014 is no different, as there are four quarterbacks vying for the top spot. And depending upon whom you ask, every analyst or expert has a strong opinion about which quarterback should be drafted when.

The NFL put out this tweet showing that one of their insiders, Daniel Jeremiah believes Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is going to slide to the end of the first round to the Cleveland Browns.

For much of the season Bridgewater was lauded as the top prospect at the position. However, as the offseason has progressed, it has become paralysis by analysis, and Bridgewater is this year’s victim.

But what will happen with these quarterbacks? It’s anyone’s guess at this point. Most teams play it close to the vest this late in the draft season, and most anything out there could be construed as subterfuge. This makes any sort of mock draft a real challenge. Where and when these four young men are taken will have ripples throughout the rest of the first and second rounds.

Nevertheless, with only a few weeks to go, it is time for another projection: this time two rounds of draft goodness. Obviously, the biggest difference between this and what we will all see in May has to do with trades. With so many teams hoarding later picks, there will be some teams trading up. The key will be to find a seller who is prepared to move back.
