Well, the second round passed with no QB in sight, making this draft the third in the past 30 years to see only one quarterback selected in the first two rounds. And perhaps even more surprisingly, Cincinnati's Desmond Ridder edged projected favorite Malik Willis, who the Seahawks passed on. Ridder went to the Falcons to support Marcus Mariota with the 74th pick, and Willis will head to the Titans behind Ryan Tannehill after the 85th pick.
Class’ lack of a headlining quarterback or three leading to a lack of drama
Maybe it's the lack of enthusiasm about this QB class, maybe it's the insane offseason trade cycle punctuated with big QB trades, and there may be concerns with these kids we're we don't know, but the more they fell, the more our eyebrows are raised. Matt Corral went to the Panthers at 94.

To be fair, there are still a few options on the board for teams like the Lions and Seahawks who may be looking for someone to, at the very least, compete for the starting job. Baker Mayfield is making the rounds, and Jimmy Garopollo's future in San Francisco is far from certain. But despite how largely boring preparing for this year's draft was, the QB drama didn't disappoint.
Georgia LB Nakobe Dean also inexplicably fell in the third round, where he was taken by the Eagles at 83. Now, I'm not an NFL scout, and I know that, but come on. This guy was a key part of one of the best defenses in CFB history. The narrative circulating at the moment is that of "medical problems". NFL Network was reporting a pec strain, but a fall this far from a projected late first-round pick makes it sound like there might be more concern behind the scenes.
