    Has there been a draft in the history of the NFL without a single QB going in the first round?

    Since the merger:

    1974: Danny White was the 1st taken at #53. David Jaynes #66.

    1984: Boomer Esiason was taken at #38. Jeff Hostetler went #59.

    1985: Bernie was taken at pick #29, but it was in the Supplemental Draft. After him, Randall Cunningham went #37 and Frank Reich went #57.

    1988: The 1st QB wasn't taken until pick #68 (Tom Tupa). Chris Chandler went 8 picks later. In fact, the 1st Kicker was taken before the 1st QB that year.

    1996: Tony Banks was the 1st QB taken at #42. The next wasn't until Bobby Hoying at #85.

    The last draft a QB wasn't taken #1 overall was in 2008 (Jake Long).

    The last draft a QB wasn't taken in the Top 3 was in 2000 (Chad Pennington - #18)

    The "no QB in the 1st round" mocks make me laugh. QB is way too important in the NFL today and there are way too many teams that need one. Tim Tebow was a 1st rounder. Christian Ponder went #12 overall. I have a feeling someone will find it in their heart to give at Geno Smith a shot. Just as the draft is an annual tradition, so is reaching for a QB.

    Mel Kiper is going draft senile. I say he shaves his head and wears sunglasses on camera from now on.

    What the....This is mind blowing.

    Manti Te’o’s Dead Girlfriend, The Most Heartbreaking And Inspirational Story Of The College Football Season, Is A Hoax

    Timothy Burke and Jack Dickey

    Notre Dame's Manti Te'o, the stories said, played this season under a terrible burden. A Mormon linebacker who led his Catholic school's football program back to glory, Te'o was whipsawed between personal tragedies along the way. In the span of six hours in September, as Sports Illustrated told it, Te'o learned first of the death of his grandmother, Annette Santiago, and then of the death of his girlfriend, Lennay Kekua.

    Kekua, 22 years old, had been in a serious car accident in California, and then had been diagnosed with leukemia. SI's Pete Thamel described how Te'o would phone her in her hospital room and stay on the line with her as he slept through the night. "Her relatives told him that at her lowest points, as she fought to emerge from a coma, her breathing rate would increase at the sound of his voice," Thamel wrote.

    Upon receiving the news of the two deaths, Te'o went out and led the Fighting Irish to a 20-3 upset of Michigan State, racking up 12 tackles. It was heartbreaking and inspirational. Te'o would appear on ESPN's College GameDay to talk about the letters Kekua had written him during her illness. He would send a heartfelt letter to the parents of a sick child, discussing his experience with disease and grief. The South Bend Tribune wrote an article describing the young couple's fairytale meeting—she, a Stanford student; he, a Notre Dame star—after a football game outside Palo Alto.

    Did you enjoy the uplifiting story, the tale of a man who responded to adversity by becoming one of the top players of the game? If so, stop reading.
    Manti Te'o did lose his grandmother this past fall. Annette Santiago died on Sept. 11, 2012, at the age of 72, according to Social Security Administration records in Nexis. But there is no SSA record there of the death of Lennay Marie Kekua, that day or any other. Her passing, recounted so many times in the national media, produces no obituary or funeral announcement in Nexis, and no mention in the Stanford student newspaper.

    Nor is there any report of a severe auto accident involving a Lennay Kekua. Background checks turn up nothing. The Stanford registrar's office has no record that a Lennay Kekua ever enrolled. There is no record of her birth in the news. Outside of a few Twitter and Instagram accounts, there's no online evidence that Lennay Kekua ever existed.

    The photographs identified as Kekua—in online tributes and on TV news reports—are pictures from the social-media accounts of a 22-year-old California woman who is not named Lennay Kekua. She is not a Stanford graduate; she has not been in a severe car accident; and she does not have leukemia. And she has never met Manti Te'o.

    I'm thinking he'll still get drafted but...if you do, you are going to get a ton bad publicity.

    So who do you guys think is the top pass rusher this class? I don't think there's a Von Miller this year, but still think the Browns desperately need to go after a rush OLB (assuming 3-4).

    Mingo
    Montgomery
    Jarvis (Would be my favorite if not for the SS).
    Werner
    Moore (I think my favorite).
    Dion Jordan.

    I think Moore certainly fits the Von Miller criteria.
    Manziel's reps also insist it's a hoax -- and he's never made a penis video on "It's a Small World" or any other Disney ride.
