Save the date: April 26th. The glorious start of the 2018 NFL Draft. There is plenty of speculation going on especially with the wild free agency that occurred. However, the theme to this draft centers on quarterbacks. This is one of the most talented group of signal-callers in the past decade. This class is often and “fairly” I may add compared to the class of 83′, when six QB’s including John Elway, Dan Marino, Todd Blackledge and Jim Kelly came off the board in the first round.

Josh Allen has one of the strongest arms we’ve ever seen and every physical tool to succeed.  Sam Darnold is the youngest quarterback in the class and has had plenty success at USC as a two-all conference player. Baker Mayfield and Jackson are both electric Heisman winners and Josh Rosen has been one of the most polarizing prospects since his junior year of high school. This year, don’t be surprised to see five or even six (Mason Rudolph from Oklahoma State) quarterbacks chosen on Day 1 of the draft—that’d be the most since 1999. Stay tuned folks!
