  • The 2019 NFL Draft begins on April 25 and will be held in Nashville, TN.
  • Matthew Freedman breaks down how many quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers will be selected in Round 1.

For the first time ever, the 2019 NFL draft will be held in Nashville.

Here’s the schedule for the seven rounds.

  • Thursday, April 25: Round 1
  • Friday, April 26: Rounds 2-3
  • Saturday, April 27: Rounds 4-7

With the combine completed, the composition of the draft class is starting to take shape, and people are starting to wonder how many quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers will be selected in Round 1.

Here are the Day 1 positional props in the market as well as my analysis.

2019 NFL Draft: Quarterbacks Selected in Round 1 

  • Over 3.5: -175
  • Under 3.5: +130

In my pre-combine mock draft, I had Kyler Murray and Dwayne Haskins slated as top-six picks, but they were the only quarterbacks with first-round grades.

The hype for Drew Lock has steadily grown this offseason, and he reportedly looked at the combine in his throwing drills, so I could see him going on Day 1. But after Lock no quarterback has distinguished himself as a legitimate candidate for a premium pick.

Of the remaining options, Daniel Jones and Will Grier are the two quarterbacks likeliest to go in Round 1. But Jones massively underwhelmed in college with his 6.2 adjusted yards per attempt. And Grier comes with concerns about his mechanics and the extent to which his production was inflated by the West Virginia offense.
