Day 1 of the 2013 NFL draft is in the books, and with it came some shockers.
Not many thought three of the first four draft picks would be offensive tackles. Not many thought Alabama offensive tackle D.J. Fluker would jump up to the San Diego Chargers at No. 11. Not many thought that Utah defensive tackle Star Lotulelei would drop to the Carolina Panthers at No. 14. And most certainly, not many thought that Florida State’s E.J. Manuel would end up being the first quarterback drafted at No. 16.
What kinds of surprises are in store for us tonight? It’s time to look ahead and delve into the Day 2 possibilities.
