Mock Draft Scenario 4 - You Make the Call

"QB or not QB?"

It's draft day and the first 15 picks transpire as follows:

HOU Jadeveon Clowney DE
STL Jake Matthews OT
JAX Khalil Mack OLB
CLE Sammy Watkins WR
OAK Greg Robinson OT
ATL Anthony Barr OLB/DE
TB Darqueze Dennard CB
MIN Calvin Pryor S
BUF Zack Martin OT
DET Aaron Donald DT
TEN Justin Gilbert CB
NYG Eric Ebron TE
STL Mike Evans WR
CHI Timmy Jernigan DT

Hmm, what's this? Not a single quarterback has been selected?! How is this possible?!

Perhaps these teams wanted a 'sure thing' and all of the top QB prospects have question marks. Johnny Football is too big a risk. Teddy Bridgewater's stock is dropping and he looked tense at his underwhelming pro day. And do you really want the face of your franchise to be someone named "Blake Bortles"? Hey, there are jersey sales to think about!

Besides, as more top-of-the-board teams start to pass on QBs, the rest feel more secure that there will be options available in Round 2. Maybe they would have been happy with Derek Carr or Garoppolo later and, now, with a triple 'Aaron Rodgers free fall' in effect, why not make a 'safer' pick now and get a QB next round?

Whatever the cause, Dallas is now looking at a scenario where they could take the first QB off the board.

'What about a trade down?' you're thinking...

...but the phones are silent and no one's taking the Jones' call. Since the QB run hasn't even started, no team feels the pressure to give up prized assets yet. Maybe the Jets or the Cardinals or the Browns at 26th would start the run, but hey there are 5 good QB prospects still available.

So the clock is almost up. Dallas must make a pick. And so,

QB or not QB? That is the question...
