None of the QBs are top-ten caliber... but, 17-20 is a good landing spot for those QBs. Plus, Dallas is rumored to want a young QB.

Thus, teams like Jacksonville (who have a top-ten pick & need a QB) might be more inclined to trade back up into R1 (to 17-20), in order to get said QB.

If the price is driven up due to perceived want, Pittsburgh could get a R2 & aR3 this year, and likely a R1 next year.
