Unlike the 2012 Draft, there doesn’t seem to be a consensus No.1 pick. Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III were highly regarded out of college, but there is no “can’t miss” quarterback prospect with this crop.
Each of the 32 teams will still have other opportunities to evaluate the available talent outside of the combine. Coaches and scouts will evaluate members of the draft class at various pro days, which begin on March 1 and finish on April 2.
Even with the draft two months away, it’s not too early to make some predictions where the best college players will land. Below is a 2013 NFL Mock Draft for the first round.
