We ran a mock draft with the crew at FanSided and all the editors sat around and made selections for their team. You can see how that mock rolled out right here.
It turned out pretty interesting on the way it rolled. I was able to choose from a number of good players in the first round. Jason Verrett was the best corner on the board, but Odell Beckham Jr and Marqise Lee were both still available at the time of my selection as well. These are the “experts” of their teams making the selections before me and both of those guys were sitting there ripe for the picking?
I had to make the move for Beckham in the first round. What else would you do in that situation? When a player of that caliber falls down to your draft spot, you just make the pick and don’t look back. Hoping we get that same type of love today. Someone slides down to pick 25 and we are sitting pretty to make a selection.
