• Welcome back for another mock draft update.  After a couple of early mocks that attempted to capture a moving target, this mock will probably become even more inaccurate as readers try to pick apart my second round guesses.  To get an understanding on my thoughts for these mocks, check out my draft insights article to see where I’m pulling these picks from.  Feel free to point out discrepancies with my thinking if you feel so obliged.  Below you will find my Mock Draft 3.0 with a now complete second round.  Following that, you’ll find some notes on the draft.  With very little time to go until draft night, expect a ton of rumors from “sources” to emerge that will impact draft stock and potential trade hype.
