The first round of the 2013 NFL Draft is tonight in New York City. The draft has talent, but not the type that is going to excite many collectors.
There won’t be many skilled positions going in the first round of the draft, but that doesn’t mean it’s not going to happen. There is a quarterback or two that could end being drafted tonight with a running back or wide receiver thrown in the mix.
Here’s a look at some of the top draft picks that could go in the first round, and what collectors can find on cards.

The commercial was one of the favorites during the last Super Bowl – Deion Sanders thought he had plenty in the tank. He put on a wig and a fake mustache to become Leon Sandcastle and impressed the scouts so much at the combine he became the first overall pick at the 2013 NFL Draft.
Panini America will be making cards of the fictional character for 2013 Score and Prestige.
He will appear as a member of the Kansas City Chiefs on his card.

Update: A new prize is up for grabs … we want your entries!
By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor
If there’s one thing I’ve come to appreciate more and more over the last few years at Beckett Media, it’s the tales of collectors — specifically, those of SuperCollectors who clearly are so focused on their niche that only one word applies.
And it’s a good thing. Imagine my thoughts today as I dipped into the SuperCollector mailbag and saw that we didn’t really have too many new and amazing entries piled up from the last few weeks.
I did the only sane thing I should do … I went and found this Larry Bird card and am randomly giving it away to one SuperCollector who submits all the necessary info between now and July 1.
The card is an impressive one — and we’ll make sure it’s in someone’s hands … as long as they submit their info about their collection.
How can it be yours? Read the instructions on submitting your SuperCollector info (any sport, any player, any niche) … after the jump.
