NFL Betting Lines – QB Class still the position on interest

February 25th, 2010 by Leave a comment Go to comments

There are some NFL draft classes that are better than others. Take for example the storied QB class of 1983 with such legends as Dan Marino, Kim Kelly and John Elway. Not bad for a single class, but this year’s NFL betting lines draft isn’t likely to match this success as it’s not particularly deep at the QB spot.

There are plenty of big names in this year’s class but none that really stand out as instant successes. Depending on which NFL Draft board or NFL betting lines mock draft you look at there are a couple QBs that are expected to go first, though there’s not likely to be more than one or QBs that goes in the first round.

Jimmy Clausen of Notre Dame has gotten a lot of hype lately even though he won relatively very few games in college. He finally put up big numbers during his junior season and scouts like that he plays in a pro style offense and should be ready to play relatively quickly. Another player at the top of most people’s NFL betting lines draft board is Sam Bradford of Oklahoma.

Bradford had a stellar junior year and likely would have been the #1 overall pick in last year’s NLF draft had he not stayed for a disastrous senior season in Norman. Injuries sidelined him and he played in the spread offense but he has arguably the most upside of any QB in the draft and could very well be the first taken at the position.

Colt McCoy of Texas also came back for a senior season and probably hurt his draft stock. Nonetheless he’ll likely be among the top three or four QBs taken. But anyway you look at it there isn’t really any QB worth trading up to take this year.
