NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock will be providing his views on the best player, the riser and the sleeper at each position in advance of the draft for the Daily News. Here is his take on the quarterbacks:

The Best
Sam Bradford, Oklahoma

Height, Weight: 6-4 1/4, 236

40 time: 4.79

Projected Round: 1

Mayock: “This kid is big. He’s one of the most accurate quarterbacks I’ve seen in college football. My two questions with him were, a) medical; and, b) can he drive the intermediate routes? And he did. He drove that comeback at his workout. As for his shoulder, he kind of put an exclamation on it at his Pro Day. He threw three or four deep balls between 45 and 55 yards that he just dropped right in the bucket over the (receiver’s) shoulder. You’ve got to rely on your medical people as far as whether they think there’s any recurring medical problem there. But if he gets a clean bill of health, he’s the No. 1 guy in the draft.”

he Riser
John Skelton, Fordham

Height, weight: 6-5 1/2, 243

40 time: 4.85

Projected round: 4

Mayock: “I call him Flacco Lite. When you see him, physically, he looks a little bit like Flacco. He’s a big, strong kid that can drive the ball. He’s got to quicken everything up. His footwork needs some help. But because of his arm strength, I don’t see him getting out of the fourth round.”

The Sleeper
Mike Kafka, Northwestern

Height, weight: 6-3, 225

40 time: 4.81

Projected round: 6

Mayock: “He’s a really smart kid. Has a better arm than people think. I don’t even think he’s sleeping anymore. He was a month-and-a-half ago, but he’s on the rise. He’s a kid who could surprise people at the end of the day.”
