Matt Flynn was traded from Seattle to the Oakland Raiders, who in turn traded Carson Palmer to the Arizona Cardinals. Then, failed Arizona project Kevin Kolb signed a free agent contract with the Buffalo Bills.

While those teams were going through a quarterbacking musical chairs, the Kansas City Chiefs continued to get Alex Smith acclimated to their system while the Philadelphia Eagles pretty much decided to make do with Mike Vick and Nick Foles on the roster.

Basically, all the moves and decisions made spell a slow first round of the 2013 NFL Draft for the handful of potentially worthy signal-callers available.

There is no RGIII, nor is there an Andrew Luck-type of talent in this year’s draft, and NFL teams have shown that they are not impressed with the arms available.

So, how many quarterbacks do Sports Illustrated’s Don Banks see going in the first round?

Hint: Not nearly as many offensive and defensive linemen.

West Virginia’s Geno Smith is the only quarterback projected to even be taken in the first round, and there are no running backs to be found.

Nearly all teams are going to either be strengthening their protection up front or, conversely, their pass rush.

There are 12 former members of the SEC projected to be selected in Sports Illustrated’s first round, and five of the first 10 picks are out of the conference that has won seven consecutive national championships.

Luke Joeckel has been seen as the No. 1 pick for quite some time, but Florida’s Sharrif Floyd is probably one of the biggest risers in this year’s draft. Floyd was not seen as a first-rounder at all until he amazed at the NFL Combine and others, such as Texas A&M’s Damontre Moore, disappointed. Now, he is projected to be selected second-overall, a difference of millions upon millions of dollars.
