The real NFL Draft is next month. Until then, we will entertain you with mock drafts.

The general managers, coaches and front offices of all 32 teams are keeping busy with the draft at the moment with the lockout in place, so this year's draft could be very different.

How it will be different no one can really say, but since mock drafts are all speculation to begin with, it does not really matter.

Blaine Gabbert is becoming the talk of the draft. There is less argument now over who will be drafted first and more talk of whether Gabbert will go No. 1 overall.

The order of wide receivers and defensive tackles also is a matter of debate. Who is the best defensive tackle on the board? Marcell Dareus or Nick Fairley?

We'll find out when the real draft happens, until then, here is my latest mock draft.
