Where will QB carousel end? Take a guess

At least seven of the top 10 teams in the 2011 NFL Draft are believed to be in the market for quarterbacks — Panthers, Bills, Bengals, Cardinals, 49ers, Titans and Redskins. The Broncos and Cowboys are set, and the Browns figure to be good with Colt McCoy – even though Cleveland has a private workout lined up with TCU’s Andy Dalton.

And since not all of those seven teams are going to get Blaine Gabbert or Cam Newton — who might not even fall past the third pick — some teams are going to need to be creative.

NFL Network’s Trent Green is convinced that the Cardinals will end up with Marc Bulger, who spent last year in Baltimore. Alex Smith figures to get another chance with the 49ers. If not, Smith might end up with the Panthers, Jamie Dukes speculates.

The Tennessean opines that Matt Hasselbeck could fit in nicely with the Titans. Although, Warren Moon wants his old teammate and new Titans coach Mike Munchak to take Newton.

And where does Carson Palmer fit in to all of this after Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden attended Dalton’s workout, too?

That is anybody’s guess at this point. And that is what we are going to do today. Below is the list of the top ten teams in this year’s draft and their 2010 Week 1 starting quarterback. The third column is my guess as to who will be starting next year.

Your assignment, NFL.com reader, is to fill out that fourth column with your guess. Don’t be shy. And later, we will put together the consensus.

Team 2010 Week 1 starter 2011 Week 1 starter (my guess) 2011 Week 1 starter (reader’s guess)
Panthers Matt Moore Newton ???
Broncos Kyle Orton Orton ???
Bills Trent Edwards Gabbert ???
Bengals Carson Palmer Palmer, Jordan Palmer ???
Cardinals Derek Anderson Bulger ???
Browns Jake Delhomme McCoy ???
49ers Smith Smith (with Dalton in the wings) ???
Titans Vince Young Tarvaris Jackson ???
Cowboys Tony Romo Romo ???
Redskins Donovan McNabb Jake Locker ???

Get to work.
