Last year, the Jacksonville Jaguars surprised everyone by taking defensive tackle Tyson Alualu with the 10th pick in the draft.

So who could raise eyebrows this year?

Keep an eye on TCU quarterback Andy Dalton. Peter King of already has reported that Dalton (and Jake Locker) will be top-2o picks. For Dalton, the zone to watch begins with pick No. 7 and ends with pick No. 16.

Teams that could take Dalton include the 49ers at No. 7, the Titans at No. 8, the Redskins at No. 10, the Vikings at No. 12, the Dolphins at No. 15, and the Jags at No. 16.
