09:30 AM ET 04.21 | There is a feeling in some NFL front offices that E.J. Manuel has leapfrogged Matt Barkley, Mike Glennon and Ryan Nassib and now could be the second quarterback taken, perhaps even in the first round. Part of this may be because teams have been unable to sell themselves on Barkley, Glennon and Nassib. And part of it may be that Manuel might have more potential than any of them. There clearly is a bust factor with him, but some think Manuel can be a better player at the next level because he has more raw talent than any quarterback in the draft other than maybe Geno Smith.

Will there be Manuel labor involved?

Would make a great office pool, as good as March Madness. Name in order and the round the first five QBs to go in this draft.

Curious to see what the Bucs would trade in picks. They have to realize they are bidding against themselves.

Nyuk nyuk nyuk!

I can't wait for the draft. How about yourself? Will your Vikings be drafting T'eo out of ND? They already have Smith, Carlson, and Rudolph. T'eo would at least know some team members already.

I think they already signed T'eo to a fake contract.

I hear he has a younger brother named Training

Well, invite him to the draft too then. Heck invite seven QBs to the draft day room. No, invite every guy who some reporter claims could go in the first round. Now thats entertainment.

Should be the first QB drafted...

Barkley best QB is this draft. Had one off year mostly because of HC Kiffin.

April 21, 2013  03:36 PM ET

It depends what type of offense you want to play. Barkley is not interchangeable with Manuel or Geno. I'd take Barkley anyway. He's played good football all his life, minus one bad season his senior year under Kiffin. Hope he succeeds. The guy even went to Haiti during their crisis. All around a good guy. Grounded.

Should be a boring draft!!!

April 21, 2013  03:53 PM ET

Hard to believe this guy would be the #2 QB selected -- he wasn't much of a winner in big games at FSU.
