With the excitement of free agency already dying down, the majority of fans in the National Football League have just one thing to look forward to over the next several months. That's the draft, held over a three-day period in late April.
Mock drafts have been circulating across the internet for months (some for years) predicting each team's first-round draft pick (and sometimes more). Here's the part where I take my turn.
I'm going to stick to just the first round. I would love to be able to predict the first two or three rounds, or even all seven, but that's just not practical. Besides, many fans are just interested in reading about who their team will pick with its first pick.
Even the best mock draft experts can only accurately predict eight or 10 of the first-round picks. Remember, one trade or one unlikely pick messes up an entire draft (and I'm not going to predict trades because that would just be too complicated).
So the following 32 slides will highlight my predictions for the mock draft. Oh, and remember, just because you think you know what your team should do doesn't mean they'll do that. Oftentimes teams surprise us. It happens multiple times each draft.
