The second day of the NFL draft came and went Friday and former Arizona Wildcats quarterback Matt Scott remains on the board.

But so do most of the quarterbacks in this year's class.

Just three signal-callers have been drafted through the first three rounds--the first time since 2000 that's happened. Florida State QB E.J. Manuel was taken in the first round by the Buffalo Bills. West Virginia's Geno Smith went in the second to the New York Jets and North Carolina State product Mike Glennon was picked in the third by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. 

Scott has received the most interest from the Seattle Seahawks, Philadelphia Eagles, Cleveland Browns and San Francisco 49ers. All four teams have picks in the fourth round.

The draft concludes today with the final four rounds. Coverage begins at 9 a.m., on ESPN and NFL Network.
