Drafting a quarterback high in the first round may be riskier this year because for any team other than the 49ers, getting the player signed in a timely fashion could be more difficult than ever. The 49ers, with the first overall pick, can negotiate with their choice before the draft. Other teams are supposed to wait to negotiate.

In fact, it could be harder than ever to sign first-rounders on the whole. This year, because the collective bargaining agreement has not been extended, teams can prorate bonuses over only five years -- compared with six years in 2004 and seven years previously -- which will hold down some initial offers.

One general manager warns that signing the top 20 picks is going to be very difficult. "I wouldn't expect any of those players signing before July," he says.

That could devalue a potential first-round quarterback such as Alex Smith or Aaron Rodgers. Quarterbacks in particular need to get an early jump on learning their systems. A quarterback who shows up for the first time in the middle of training camp is the equivalent of a 2006 draft pick.

Oh great! Just what we need, another excuse for Carl not to get our #1 signed.
