There was one quarterback drafted in the first round of this year's NFL Draft.
The 2014 class might have had something to do with that.
After a lean quarterback class this year, next year could be a major hit for the teams in need. I say "could be" because we have a lot of football and evaluation between now and then.
Just ask Matt Barkley what that's like.
Barkley once was considered the potential overall top pick this year, and fell to the fourth round. I doubt that will happen to Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, the top player and quarterback on my early top-32 list for the 2014. He is too good for that to happen.
Quarterback is obviously more valuable than any other position in the draft, which is why Bridgewater is ranked first over South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney.
But he is not alone as a potential first-round quarterback next year. There is David Fales from San Jose State, Oregon's Marcus Mariotta, Alabama's AJ McCarron, Ohio State's Braxton Miller, Georgia's Aaron Murray, Fresno State's Derek Carr and Johnny Manziel, the Heisman Trophy winner from Texas A&M.
