The NFL scouting combine is valuable for many reasons. One of the primary reasons for the whole event is that it allows coaches, general managers and team owners to get a sense of priorities and targets in a huge pool of talent. That applies to the faux-GMs who do mock drafts, including your humble draft correspondent. With pro days and player interviews coming up, there's still a lot to get through, and that's why we'll have multiple mocks over the next two months. But after the combine is when things start to shake out. One thing hasn't changed: There really isn't a first-round talent at quarterback -- we have two in this mock, and we tend to think that both will be overdrafted.
