For Cardinals fans, it might be the most exciting draft in quite some time.
This is a bit of reach, but the Bears desperately need to protect their young quarterback Mitch Trubisky before addressing other needs. They've signed starter Sam Bradford and Mike Glennon as depth, yet there's no better way to find a franchise signal-caller than via the draft. I would much rather have Baker Mayfield, Josh Rosen or Lamar Jackson.
The Browns are expected to use the No. 1 pick on a quarterback when the draft gets underway Thursday at AT&T Stadium. "I think like everything else, the quarterback is such an important position there's always going to be a focal point of, hey, this may be a position of interest, obviously for us, but we'll see how it plays itself out". Probably. The Browns aren't in a rush. If the Browns take either, it's a fine choice.If they would trade with the Bills?

And yet, he would still deem this draft a success without selecting one. Buffalo lacks an established receiver beyond Kelvin Benjamin, and has yet to identify a starting middle linebacker after losing Preston Brown in free agency. It's likely he's more of a bridge option after trading Taylor.
Some might say they gave up a lot but in the grand scheme of things, you can't make an omelet without breaking some eggs. Nope. The Packers are well-stocked with Aaron Rodgers, Brett Hundley and Kizer on the roster. Teams like the Bills (drafting 12th) and Cardinals (drafting 15th) are in the market for a quarterback this year and could trade up to get one.
- Even if only three quarterbacks are off the board, do they like the next QB on their big board?
