With roughly one week to go until the start of the 2021 NFL Draft in Cleveland, the only certainty that lays ahead is that we will most certainly see five quarterbacks taken in the first round, which would be the ninth time since the merger that four or more passers were taken in the first round.

That could very well include each of the top three teams in the first round taking a quarterback in hopes that they have their No. 1 man under center for the foreseeable future. 

Of course, there is the potential of more moves being made before the teams are on the clock as trades are still very much being discussed — most recently the Denver Broncos calling up the Atlanta Falcons to move up from the No. 9 pick to the No. 4 spot.

Regardless, we gave it our best go to try and play football’s version of Nostradamus:
