This is it. This is the order. Week 17 is in the books, and these 20 teams are now turning their full attention to the NFL Draft.
As an NFL coach or executive, there truly is no offseason. This winter and spring will prove to be a case in point. With no clear-cut, consensus first-overall player to be selected, the evaluation process that lies ahead becomes that much more critical.
I personally don't like doing mock drafts until after I get home from Senior Bowl practices because so much starts to change as we see these prospects live and in person.
It was at last year's Senior Bowl where I identified Kellen Moore as being entirely undraftable (too much Boise backlash) and where my eyes were opened to the player I just placed on my PFWA ballot as defensive rookie of the year, Janoris Jenkins.
Workout warriors like Dontari Poe will emerge, and "surefire stars" like Dwight Jones will completely fall off.
We have a long road ahead, and looking back, some of these estimations will seem foolish. But as draft analysts, calculated speculation is our business.
We now know the order of the first 20 picks of the 2013 NFL Draft. If the draft were to occur today, these are my picks for who each team would choose.
