The veteran quarterback market is settled, but there are still plenty of teams in need of a starting-caliber quarterback. 

Fortunately, this is perceived to be a loaded quarterback draft class. But who will land passers after the Bears at No. 1 and Commanders at No. 2 overall? Giants? Vikings, Broncos? Raiders? Will there be a surprise team or two later in Round 1. 

This three-round mock sorts it all out.

You can find "With the First Pick" wherever you get your podcasts: Apple PodcastsSpotifyYouTube, etc. Listen to the latest episode below!
