The NFL draft is coming up this April, and I think I speak for everyone when I say that NFL fans cannot be more excited.
The NFL offseason is extremely long and anything to do with the NFL is overly exciting. Free agency in March, the draft in April, camps in July, training camp and then, finally, the NFL season.
But all of that is stretched out over a lengthy offseason schedule that makes fans cherish everything that comes at them and count down towards the next NFL event. I am a fan that watches the Pro Bowl because it is the last time I'll be able to watch my favorite players for a long time.
But that's why I like the NFL draft.
It is a time when my favorite team (who happens to be the Packers) drafts young talent that could turn into one of my favorite players down the road. It's always exciting and provides great discussion before and after the fact.
Talking about discussion, I am here to provide my predictions on what teams will draft which players in the first round this April. This is the part of the event that creates great discussion before the event, and the next part of the discussion will be live blogs of the draft.
For now, though, here is my first round mock draft.
