With a plethora of differing evaluations on the top quarterback prospects, there could be as many as four or as few as zero quarterbacks selected among the top 10 picks of the 2014 NFL draft.

Teddy Bridgewater ranks as the No. 1 quarterback and prospect in this year’s draft class, and the second-best quarterback draft prospect (behind Andrew Luck) since 2001. He is NFL-ready and has the intelligence and skill set needed to be a franchise signal-caller. A team needing a quarterback should not pass on his talent, which is why I feel the Houston Texans should select him with the first pick in this year’s draft.

One of these years we’ll have Bills playoff football to discuss, but not this year. So with Bills fans in “maybe next year” mode, it’s time to look at the future of the team. Buffalo certainly has holes to fill on both sides of the ball, and they’ll have their opportunities in free agency and the 2014 NFL draft.

The Bills have the No. 9 overall pick in this year’s draft. While the draft stocks of many of the prospects below might change between now and the May draft, the following seven players could all be potential fits for Buffalo.

Brigham Young (8-5) and Washington (9-4) faced off in the Fight Hunger Bowl on Friday, Dec. 27, with both teams looking to get their ninth win of the season.

Despite being overwhelmingly outgained on offense, Washington led 21-16 at halftime behind a couple of touchdowns by junior running back Bishop Sankey, who declared for the 2014 NFL draft Monday, and won the game by a final score of 31-16.

Several seniors from both teams, as well as a number of Washington underclassmen including Sankey, are expected to be selections in the 2014 NFL draft.

The final game of the bowl season’s first week will feature numerous NFL prospects on both sides of the ball for both teams as the BYU Cougars (8-4) and Washington Huskies (8-4) play in Friday night’s Fight Hunger Bowl (9:30 p.m. ET, ESPN) at AT&T Park in San Francisco.

While both of these teams will be looking to finish their season with a ninth victory, the game’s senior NFL prospects, including BYU linebacker Kyle Van Noy and Washington quarterback Keith Price, will be looking to make a big impression in their final college football games before moving on to the next level. The same might be the case for a few select underclassmen, including Washington tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins and running back Bishop Sankey, who could declare for the 2014 NFL draft to take advantage of early-round potential.

The quarterback crop for the 2014 NFL draft will be greatly influenced by the potential early declarations of Teddy Bridgewater (Louisville), Marcus Mariota (Oregon), Brett Hundley (UCLA) and Johnny Manziel (Texas A&M). Among the senior quarterbacks, however, there are two who stand out from the pack: Fresno State’s Derek Carr and San Jose State’s David Fales.

I grade both Carr and Fales as first-round draft selections. The rest of the group combines a mixture of solid physical ability, good makeup and intangibles, but none of them put it all together. (Then again, Drew Brees, Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers weren’t the total package when they were drafted either)

Overall, this year’s quarterback class is much deeper than that of the 2013 NFL draft, which had just three quarterbacks selected in the first three rounds and 11 total quarterbacks selected.

From now until the week before the Senior Bowl, I will be releasing a set of rankings for one position group each week, breaking down the top 2014 NFL draft prospects at each position. These rankings will include seniors only.

This week, we start with the draft class’ top-10 senior quarterbacks.
