Poll: How many QBs will be drafted in the first round?

Five quarterbacks haven't been taken in the first round of the NFL Draft since 1999.

That year, Tim Couch (1, Browns), Donovan McNabb (2, Philadelphia), Akili Smith (3, Cincinnati), Daunte Culpepper (11, Minnesota) and Cade McNown (12, Chicago) all went in the first round.

It happened then partially due to extreme need. The same could happen this year because of the uncertainty of the NFL's collective bargaining agreement. The general perception is that teams will draft based more on need this year than in years past. Later-round quarterbacks may get pushed into the first 32 picks as a result.

Personally, I see five quarterbacks going in the first this year – Blaine Gabbert, Jake Locker, Ryan Mallett, Cam Newton and Christian Ponder. Colin Kaepernick and Andy Dalton are arguably in the mix as well.

How many do you expect to be drafted in the first round?
