Story lines to Watch
Where Will the Quarterbacks Go?
Five quarterbacks are expected to go in the 1st Round. Bryce Young is expected to go 1st, but what about everyone else? Will CJ Stroud slide? Could Hendon Hooker be the 3rd quarterback drafted?
Will Bijan Robinson Go in the Top 10?
Arguably one of the three best players in this draft, there is no real consensus where he will be drafted. Atlanta at 8 is a possibility, but if they don’t take him could he slide to the twenties?
How Crazy and Unpredictable Will this First Round Be?
This draft isn’t viewed as overly deep. There are only a few star players and the quarterbacks aren’t expected to be game changers. Reports that teams only view this draft having 10 or 12 true first round players. Are we going to see some shocking names go off the board?
