06:58 AM ET 04.24 | There is no shortage of teams looking to move down in the draft, but are any looking to move up? [New Orleans] could be lurking as a potential partner. New defensive coordinator Rob Ryan still needs edge rushers for his 3-4, and this isn't a draft rich in those types. The problem is, the Saints, thanks in part to the bounty scandal, have just five picks. ... It's not out of the question that the Rams could move up for a player like Tavon Austin. It's also well within reason that they could deal way down. ... The Vikings, with two picks in the 20s, could be in prime position to accommodate a quarterback-needy team looking to move up. Buffalo is considered the "cliff" for the quarterbacks.

Buffalo is the cliff for talent.

"Buffalo is considered the "cliff" for the quarterbacks."

Wha? As in, "If I'm drafted by Buffalo I'll jump off a cliff?"

It is a far better QB draft than that 2010 circus that after Bradford ( a slightly above average QB) produced Tebow, Claussen, McCoy , Kafka, Skelton and Crompton, in that order through round five.

Grab all the fat boys you can get and a QB in round two if you need one.

I think part of the problem is that there is no head and shoulders above the other #1 pick. The other problem is that a few of the top QB's teams struggled and in the case of Tyler Wilson and the circus they called the Razorbacks in 2012 out right pathetic. The other problem is there are no read option media darlings that are projected top 5 (although some think Manuel can he hasn't been one yet) only the kid in Arizona is even close. I personally think that Wilson will be the surprise of the draft, that if Arizona drafts a QB on day 2 it'll be Wilson or Glennon (Arians type QB's). I don't expect the Jags to draft on till day 3. I think they see a pretty barren cupboard when Caldwell and Bradley look at the roster, and they will sink or swim with Gabbert and Henne with an eye on Teddy Bridgewater in 2014

You could be right. Personally, I am a Nassib fan. He understands how to use the pocket and he can make the throws you need to make, and he had a pro experienced coach teaching him-Morrone.

It would have been cheekier if they'd referenced a waterfall with Buffalo instead.

If it was certain, then it would have already happened. Midol, it's called Midol

That's the one I'd take, were I a GM in need of a QB. Watching his highlight reels I can't help but feel he's the one we'll all remember in 20 years. The others may be the hard-to-remember answers to trivia questions by then.

3 TEAMS MOST LIKELY TO TRADE UP - What are the names of the 3 teams that want to trade "UP"? You have given us one team New Orleans that might move up but they can't because they don't have any bargaining draft choices in this years draft so that makes them an UNLIKELY CHOICE. Then you have St. Louis whom you say might move up but then again they might move down. You fail to mention which team the Vikings would trade with to move up ? All you say is that there may be teams that need a QB and the other team might move up and trade with the Vikings.

I would think the niners', with all those draft choices, would be most likely to trade up...
