05:12 PM ET 02.15 | Will the entire first round of the 2013 NFL Draft pass without a quarterback selected? ESPN's Todd McShay doesn't think so, but he thinks that with the talent available, teams could be smart to pass until later. McShay said multiple times in a conference call Friday afternoon that he doesn't grade out any quarterbacks as first rounders. The draft analyst said he'd spent the last four days watching nothing but tape of quarterbacks in pressure situations -- grading how they react when they've been hurried and need to move around the pocket -- and still has nobody graded as a first-rounder. However, he spoke of the class' depth, naming six quarterbacks he feels are second-round talents: Geno Smith, Matt Barkley, Mike Glennon, Tyler Wilson, Tyler Bray, and Landry Jones, with Ryan Nassib also having the potential to come off the board in the second round.
