All of that trade activity means only 16 teams have exactly one first-round pick. The other half of the league enters the draft with either two first-rounders or none. (And there are still a few hours for a Deebo Samuel trade to alter those numbers!) All of the offseason chaos leads us into a draft that has shaped up to be one of the more unpredictable in recent memory. Most drafts—18 of the past 25—have started with a quarterback, and there’s a reasonable chance that a quarterback won’t crack this year’s top 10. Over the past quarter century, the draft has started with a defensive player only four times, and only the 2000 draft began with back-to-back defensive players. That is the reality I have below, for the first time since Courtney Brown and LaVarr Arrington were the first two players off the board.
