|A lot of the time when I look at various mock drafts for teams, the biggest thing I see posters doing is making trade predictions. I think that this is mostly fun and usually in fantasy land. The unrealistic expectations of predicting trades is usually short sighted and highly biased. The only predictions that I could make are there are 4 teams that pick after the Lions that may make sense to trade with. The Jets and Broncos and to a lesser extent Bills and Cardinals may all be in the market to secure their future at QB and may look to make a move up in the draft to add that player. I'll leave it at that because as I said previously, it's just too unrealistic to make those predictions.
Now onto my draft, which I will for the first 3 rounds include what I would like in an A and B scenario. Rounds 1 and 2 will be dedicated to the O&D Tackles and then it simply just starts to fill in the roster from there.
1a Sheldon Rankins DT Louisville
1b Jack Conklin OT Michigan State/Taylor Decker OT Ohio State
2a Jason Spriggs OT Indiana/La'Raven Clark OT Texas A&M
2b Vernon Butlet DT Louisiana Tech/Adolphus Washington DT Ohio State
3a Geronimo Allison WR Illinios
3b Ta'jae Sharp WR Massachussetts
4 Tyviss Powell, S Ohio State
5 Stephen Weatherly DE/OLB Vanderbilt
5 Miles Killebrew S Southern Utah
6 Jack Allen C Michigan State
6 James Crowser OLB Southern Utah
6 Nate Sudfeld QB Indiana
7 Dwayne Washington RB Washington
I'll leave you guys to picking it apart.
