New, comments

What are the chances Jadeveon Clowney goes No. 1 overall? Will Teddy Bridgewater or Derek Carr be selected in the first round? How high does Johnny Manziel go? All those odds and more inside.

Momentum is growing for Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater to make a draft day drop. How far will he drop? NFL Draft oddsmakers say Bridgewater is not expected to be drafted ahead of Derek Carr, which would likely make him at least the third quarterback drafted.

That's quite the fall for Bridgewater, who still has fans at Arrowhead Pride. It's looking more and more like he's going to be there at No. 23.

Carr says he's heard from four or five teams who told him they are going to trade back into the first round to select him. The Chiefs have rumored interest in him, although it seems like a good bet that the quarterback talk is a smokescreen or a leverage play in the contract negotiations with Alex Smith.

My guess would be on someone trading up to No. 22 to get him, one spot ahead of the Chiefs. Andy Reid's quarterback history and the fact that Smith is under contract for just one more year (at the moment) could scare some team just enough to trade up in front of Kansas City. Or the Chiefs will just take Carr themselves. That's a possibility, too.
