ESPN NFL draft experts Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay released dueling mock drafts Wednesday that included quarterbacks galore among the top six picks.

However, the two disagree on which signal-caller will fly off the board first.

Appearing on ESPN's Get Up!, Kiper pegged Josh Allen to the Cleveland Browns, while McShay had Sam Darnold as the pick.

McShay had Allen slotted one pick lower to the Buffalo Bills—who he believes will strike a deal with the New York Giants to move up to No. 2 overall and select the former Wyoming gunslinger.

Here's a look at each prognosticator's top six:

             

Kiper

1. Cleveland Browns: Josh Allen, QB, Wyoming

2. New York Giants: Sam Darnold, QB, USC

3. New York Jets: Josh Rosen, QB, UCLA

4. Cleveland Browns (via Houston Texans): Saquon Barkley, RB, Penn State

5. Denver Broncos: Baker Mayfield, QB, Oklahoma

6. Indianapolis Colts: Bradley Chubb, EDGE, NC State

         

McShay

1. Cleveland Browns: Sam Darnold, QB, USC

2. Buffalo Bills (projected trade with NYG): Josh Allen, QB, Wyoming

3. New York Jets: Josh Rosen, QB, UCLA

4. Cleveland Browns (via Houston Texans): Saquon Barkley, RB, Penn State

5. Denver Broncos: Bradley Chubb, EDGE, NC State

6. Miami Dolphins (projected trade with IND): Baker Mayfield, QB, Oklahoma

By comparison, Bleacher Report NFL draft expert Matt Miller has Darnold going No. 1 to the Browns, Chubb No. 2 to the Giants and Allen No. 3 to the Jets. He then has Barkley to the Browns at No. 4, Mayfield to the Broncos at No. 5 and the Bills trading up to No. 6 to acquire Rosen.
