While scanning through mock draft after mock draft, it has become somewhat clear that NFL draft experts and handicappers agree that there are two groups of quarterbacks in this year’s annual event.
There are the top two in Auburn’s Cam Newton and Blaine Gabbert of Missouri—then there’s everybody else.
Considering that two of the top three teams and potentially eight out of the top 10 are in need of a quarterback, picks could be passed around with the flurry and feel of a two-minute drill.
Carolina have issues under center with current QB Jimmy Clausen, who was the NFL’s lowest-rated passer in 2010. Expect them to take advantage of the No. 1 overall pick by selecting Newton or Gabbert.
Expect the other quarterback to be right behind him with a large number of teams eyeing Denver’s No. 2 spot, which could be on the table considering that the Broncos have two quarterbacks that they're comfortable with.
