The 2013 NFL draft started with beefy lineman Eric Fisher. Then came beefy lineman Luke Joeckel, also an offensive tackle. The quarterbacks didn't show up in the 2013 NFL draft till the No. 16 draft pick, Florida State's EJ Manuel.

Short on glam, slim on glitter, the NFL draft was still nothing less than a rock solid B-plus. As in Big, as in Brawn, as in Bulk, as in Beefy.
The first seven picks were all linemen: four on offense, three on defense. "That's a lot of love for the big boys up front, which we usually don't get," Mr. Fisher said.
Unlike the last few years when bumper crops of quarterbacks reigned, this was pure muscle, and lots of it.
"This is so surreal," Fisher said. "I'm ready to get to work right now. I'm ready to start playing some football. I can't process what's going on right now."
