Six Things You Shouldn’t Be Shocked To See In First Round Of 2018 NFL Draft

NFL Draft

2.) Do Not Be Surprised if 6 Quarterbacks Go Round One

Quarterbacks are getting overdrafted nowadays and not only that, teams are giving up a ransom to get them. With the new rookie wage scale, their contracts are almost set in stone and are affordable. A team can go out in free agency and spend 15-20 million on a Sam Bradford or Case Keenum or potentially give up two first-round picks with no guarantee those picks will pan out for someone with a higher potential on a five-year deal at 1/5-1/4 of the cost. That is why you are seeing these deals becoming more frequent since the return on value risk especially at the most important position in football is better. If you are stuck in a bad cap spot or maybe one QB away from being a serious contender it makes a lot of sense to go up and get your QB. That fifth year option will also mean a lot to teams. Philadelphia at 32 does not pick again until the fourth round after 32. They hold the last spot for a fifth year option. Don’t be surprised if someone creeps into that spot to take a QB in order to get the fifth year on them or if New England likes one at say 31.
