The NFL draft never goes as planned or at least how prognosticators in the media project it to go. That’s part of what makes the draft so entertaining to cover, follow and watch live every year.
Every team enters the draft with players they covet, but only a handful of teams leave the draft securing all the players they hoped they would when the first team is on the clock. And while mock drafters covet accuracy, one wrong pick can have a drastic effect on the rest of the first round and beyond, thanks to teams adjusting for who’s on the board and what needs they need to fill immediately.
In this mock draft, I’ll give the best- and worst-case scenarios for each selection in the first round. Keep in mind there are plenty of options besides the two listed and quarterback draft slots can have a drastic and potentially surprising effect on the top 32 picks.
With that said, here’s all 32 picks of the first round and where certain players might land, or which players teams might settle for, on draft day.
