NFL Draft 2018: Top 5 late-round quarterback sleepers

Dorsey's drafting record in four years in Kansas City is sound. The Steelers also have some experience at the backup guard and tackle positions.

The NFL Draft is far from an exact science. In particular, the first round of the NFL Draft is where players have the highest chance of being a success as a professional football player.

It's an even-numbered draft year, which means the Steelers could be mining help along the line.

Spielman has a goal of getting 10 picks in each draft, so he figures to make several trades. But recently, draft classes featuring multiple quarterbacks in the top-5 picks have shown promise.

In 2013, '15 and '17, the Steelers ignored the O-line in the draft. Cleveland will be fielding a number of requests for trade due to the number of picks at their disposal.

Only have three of their first-round picks are still on the roster: Leonard Williams, Darron Lee and Jamal Adams.

Foster, entering his 10th year in the National Football League, is coming off back-to-back seasons in which he missed two games because of injury.

A year ago things changed, and in my opinion it was for the better, as the big networks made a point to not tip the picks before they occurred in the early rounds.

If the Steelers decide to draft Foster's successor, this might be the year to do it. Manning's performance was so bad that Coach Ben McAdoo benched him in favor of unheralded veteran journeyman Geno Smith.

"As Saquon's [agent] I can say on behalf of our entire team that we would be thrilled for Saquon to go to whichever team drafts him", Kim Miale said, as reported by the Cleveland Plain Dealer. "It depends on what type of offense you run". Perhaps the best pure passer in that group, Dan Marino, lasted until pick No. 27 of the draft.

Despite the Giants' public allegiance to Eli Manning this offseason, their need for a quarterback remains quite apparent. "You can't recruit them anymore; you've got to draft them".

"Think about all of the quarterbacks you've seen".

Other potential first-round interior linemen are Isaiah Wynn of Georgia, James Daniels of Iowa and Will Hernandez of UTEP.

If the Giants do make that choice, that presumably would be just fine with Barkley, even though he grew up rooting for the Jets and idolizing that team's Hall of Fame running back, Curtis Martin. Now, Manning is entering the twilight of his career at age 37; it is uncertain how long he will continue to play at a serviceable level. I think scouting. When you do that, you see the purity of information. "Playing 55 games at Ohio State, the resume and body of work is there".

Even though some believe NY will select a quarterback with the second pick, recent reports indicate that the Giants are enthralled with Penn State running back Saquon Barkley.

Another second-day possibility is Nevada's Austin Corbett. "That's what teams are looking for".
