Overall, this is a weak QB class as far as the top-end is concerned, but it does offer decent value in rounds 2 and 3.  There is a chance that only one QB goes in the first round and if Geno Smith falls outside of the first 8 picks, he could keep falling until someone trades into the 1st to take him.

LZ Favorite - Zac Dysert: Dysert plays with more poise than most of the QBs in this draft.  He's played under center, out of the pistol and out of the gun.  Dysert didn't have a very good Senior Bowl week, but he looks much better in real game action.  I like his temperament and think he's a good value pick in the 3rd or early 4th.
