Now that Day 1 of the NFL draft is in the books, we'll see some big names come off the board on Friday. That includes some intriguing possibilities at quarterback. Based on my final Big Board -- which ranks the top 100 NFL draft prospects -- here's a look at the top 25 players available heading into Round 2.

This is not a prediction of the draft order; it's merely how I rank the remaining prospects. 


Top 10 remaining

1. QB Derek Carr, Fresno State

The No. 21 player on my final Big Board, he's a possibility for the Houston Texans at No. 33.
