Less than a week removed from the 2010 NFL draft, much of the focus turns towards rookie minicamps, a fresh batch of veteran free agents, and the anticipation of the upcoming season.
But it's never too early to have one eye on the distant future and the promise of yet another Draft.
Unlike this year, round one of the 2011 NFL Draft is shaping out to be dominated by offensive skill positions. There are handfuls of quality quarterbacks, running backs, and wide receivers that will be the early stories of what should be an exciting draft class.
Offensive-starved franchises will have the opportunity to give their teams the shot in the arm that just wasn't available in round one this year. And unlike Sam Bradford and the rest at quarterback, the competition for the top spot in 2011 will be an ongoing battle all year long.
Right now, it's Jake Locker's to lose.
