As the NFL season continues to wind down, I start to focus on my favorite time of the year: NFL draft season.
This year’s draft class is loaded with talent at important positions and, with many NFL teams perhaps one piece away from legitimate contention, this could be the most important draft in years.
The following is a two-round mock draft with the draft order based on projections from how each NFL team will finish. Most of the picks are based off of team need, which I determined using the team efficiency and individual player ratings on Pro Football Focus.
Each first round pick has a write-up. The second- round picks are made based off of need but do not have write-ups.
Also, I have included my personal top 100 NFL prospect list. As the process continues, I'm sure there will be changes in both the draft and big board.
*Note: The St. Louis Rams own the Washington Redskins first-round selection via the Robert Griffin III trade, and the Cleveland Browns have the Indianapolis Colts’ first-round pick because of the Trent Richardson trade.
