NFL 5 43 Best remaining players after Day 1 of 2013 NFL Draft 31714856 Who is left? Who+is+left%3F NFL

Day 1 of the 2013 NFL Draft is over and there are still plenty of big names and talented players available. Though Manti Te’o may attract more eyeballs and generate more TV ratings, I was not surprised that the Notre Dame linebacker didn’t get selected in the first 32 picks on Thursday (though, admittedly, I had him going 18 in my final mock draft). I don’t think he’ll be one of the first players named on Friday, either. Who will? Here are the top 10 guys on my draft board, heading into Day 2.

NFL 5 43 Best remaining players after Day 1 of 2013 NFL Draft 31714847 Menelik Watson, Offensive Tackle, Florida State Menelik+Watson%2C+Offensive+Tackle%2C+Florida+State NFL

Considered raw, Watson was a standout in his one year at FSU, playing right tackle and protecting EJ Manuel. A physical specimen, he’s 24 years old and a native of Manchester, England. Scouts like the athleticism, as he’s been described as a “piece of clay” by more than one.

NFL 5 43 Best remaining players after Day 1 of 2013 NFL Draft 31714852 Geno Smith, Quarterback, West Virginia Geno+Smith%2C+Quarterback%2C+West+Virginia NFL

Smith, considered a potential top-five pick entering this week, slipped all the way out of the first round. At 6-2, he is athletic enough to run the read-option en vogue offenses if he’s asked and also capable of making all the throws — he’s the top QB left on the board.

NFL 5 43 Best remaining players after Day 1 of 2013 NFL Draft 31717662 John Cyprien, Safety, Florida International University John+Cyprien%2C+Safety%2C+Florida+International+University NFL

The star of Senior Bowl week, Cyprien recorded 93 tackles his senior year and was all over the FIU tapes. A strong kid with good measureables (6-0, 220 pounds) and the ability to cover the pass, he won’t slip out of the second round.

NFL 5 43 Best remaining players after Day 1 of 2013 NFL Draft 31714848 Jesse Williams, Defensive Tackle, Alabama Jesse+Williams%2C+Defensive+Tackle%2C+Alabama NFL

The Australian-born Williams is still somewhat new to the game, but could make an immediate impact for a team looking for a run-stuffing DT. At 6-4, 325 pounds, he’s played all along the defensive line and was a standout for the BCS champions at nose tackle in 2012.

NFL 5 43 Best remaining players after Day 1 of 2013 NFL Draft 31714850 Robert Woods, Wide Receiver, USC Robert+Woods%2C+Wide+Receiver%2C+USC NFL

Only three receivers were selected on Thursday, but I’m still surprised Woods wasn’t one of them. After catching 111 balls during his sophomore season, he saw that number dip to 76 in 2012 when Marqise Lee became Matt Barkley’s No. 1 target. He’s got the size, the speed, the hands and the experience to be a very effective wide receiver in this league. He’ll come off the board early on Friday.

Injury concerns dinged Carradine’s draft stock this week as multiple teams have mentioned his knee as a negative. The 6-4, 280-pound pass rusher sure can move and get to the quarterback when healthy, though.

NFL 5 43 Best remaining players after Day 1 of 2013 NFL Draft 31714857 Arthur Brown, Linebacker, Kansas State Arthur+Brown%2C+Linebacker%2C+Kansas+State NFL

The brother of Philadelphia Eagles running back Bryce Brown, Arthur Brown was a big performer at Kansas State and fits the "Lavonte David" mold of modern-day linebacker. A bit undersized, but super athletic and awfully smart, he can go sideline to sideline and make plays from the inside linebacker position. If trained, he can make for a nice little 3-4 OLB, too.

NFL 5 43 Best remaining players after Day 1 of 2013 NFL Draft 31714855 Mike Glennon, Quarterback, North Carolina State Mike+Glennon%2C+Quarterback%2C+North+Carolina+State NFL

A 6-6 presence in the pocket, Glennon was coached by Tom O’Brien and Dana Bible in college. Who else was? Matt Ryan. He’s got the size, is a good leader, and can wing the ball. The questions are about his consistency.

NFL 5 43 Best remaining players after Day 1 of 2013 NFL Draft 31714854 Matt Barkley, Quarterback, USC Matt+Barkley%2C+Quarterback%2C+USC NFL

Barkley started four years in at SoCal high school power Mater Dei and four years at USC. That’s eight years of experience at the highest levels of both high school and college. He’s a winner and a leader, and has been under the bright lights. The issue is his arm strength. He should go in the second round.

NFL 5 43 Best remaining players after Day 1 of 2013 NFL Draft 31714853 Jamar Taylor, Cornerback, Boise State Jamar+Taylor%2C+Cornerback%2C+Boise+State NFL

I thought Taylor could sneak into the end of the first round. He didn’t. At 5-11, 192 pounds with a 4.4 40 time, he has the size and speed to be a difference maker at the next level. Relatively unknown at this time in 2012, he had a big breakout senior season. Boise’s been an NFL factory over the past decade; Taylor’s the next big prospect. He should hear his name called Friday.
