The 78th annual NFL Player Selection Meeting will be held in two weeks at the Radio City Music Hall in New York City. As we draw near to the draft it becomes a bit easier to garner some insight on what could possibly be going on in the minds of the NFL GM’s. As pro days and private work outs begin to wind down it becomes more clear as to what each team is going to attempt to do in this year’s draft.
This year’s draft comes with much drama and intrigue. There is no number one pick that sports writers can seem to agree on. Some even go so far as to say that the Chiefs trade down from their first overall pick to acquire more picks in the draft. Another question being asked is how many quarterbacks will be taken in the first round? Not many teams seem to be in such dire need of a QB this year that they will overextend themselves and take Matt Barkley or Ryan Nassib in the first round. Another big question is where will Manti Te’o land? Some experts have him falling all the way down to the Ravens with the last pick in the first round, some writers dont have him getting past the Bears, Vikings, or Giant’s middle picks.
