NFL Draftniks are in heaven at this time of year as mock drafts are plentiful.

With the lack of free agency and normal NFL business, mock drafts are a pleasant diversion to the lack of real NFL news.

This year's draft crop is heavy on defensive prospects and it is expected defense will rule in the first round.

There is the usual excitement over quarterbacks, but that is expected to be a second-round free-for-all at this point.

After all, after Cam Newton and Blaine Gabbert, the next four guys on the depth chart are pretty equally rated.

A lot of teams need quarterbacks this year but the defensive lines of most teams always need improvement.

Will Marcell Dareus go first, or will it be Newton?

We will find out in a few weeks.
