The bulk of the league’s free agents have been signed, which paints a clearer picture heading up to the NFL draft. Teams have been given an opportunity to upgrade their roster by signing the best talent in the free-agent market.
The draft will be the next chance for head coaches to get their rosters in order for training camp. The talent pool this year is seen to be weaker at the top but deeper in the middle. There’s no clear-cut first overall pick, and there’s a possibility only one quarterback goes in the first round.
What will be interesting is seeing which teams trade up to select their franchise signal-caller or a stud defensive end that pressured the opposing quarterback. In keeping with the general mock draft rules, I did not project any trades.
