The NFL Draft is two short weeks away. Naturally, it seems like the wait will last an eternity.
The best weekend of the year in the football offseason draws probably the most analysis and traffic on all sports websites.
I had reoccurring first round mock drafts last year, and I was not far off from the actual picks, so I figured I would give it a shot once again this year.
In all honesty, no one is privy to what teams are thinking. If we were, it would make this process incredibly less interesting.
The most intriguing aspect of the NFL draft is that no matter how much research you do, there is almost always going to be some picks that leave you scratching your head, making the rest of the draft that much more interesting.
I, for one, cannot wait until April 22. I don't know who made the decision to make the first round its own prime-time event, but I can tell you I don't really like it.
If you are a Raiders fan, you probably don't care, but often times teams that make questionable picks in the first round tend to redeem themselves in the second.
Now we have to wait 24 hours for that to happen.
Okay, I'm done rambling. Check in for part two of this article with picks 17-32 later in the week.
