2013 NFL Draft: Best prospects available after Day 1

By Dane Brugler | NFLDraftScout.com Senior Analyst

Day 1 of the 2013 NFL Draft is in the books and 32 players are now NFL rookies in professional football. But even with several impact players off the board, there are still several talented players available for Friday's second and third rounds.

The most notable name still left is quarterback Geno Smith, who was once thought to be a top-10 pick. Would have to imagine that the Jaguars (33rd overall) and the Eagles (35th) are possible landing spots for the former West Virginia signal caller, but he'll have competition from Southern Cal's Matt Barkley and Syracuse's Ryan Nassib to be the next quarterback off the board.

Notre Dame All-America linebacker Manti Te'o is also still available and waiting for his phone call to find out where he will be playing next season in the NFL. He is arguably the top defensive player still available after the first round.

Also, for the first time since 1963, zero running backs were selected in the first round so teams in the second round will have their pick of the top running backs in this year's class, including Alabama's Eddie Lacy.

The strength of this year's draft will be in those second and third rounds where dozens of future NFL starters can be found. Entering Friday, here are the top-40 players still remaining in the 2013 NFL Draft.
