This article will discuss how to make mock drafts based on current team draft projections.
To see how the mock drafts will play out in reality, check out the article on NFL Draft Projections.
Nope, I’m not talking about the projected NFL rosters.
In fact, I can’t even believe I’m doing this.
But that’s what I do.
This article is based on the mock draft I did last week for the Dallas Cowboys.
So what I’m going to do is break down the draft for each team and see how they are shaping up.
Dolphins, 49ers, Cardinals, Panthers, Saints, Chargers, EaglesThe Dolphins were a projected first round pick.
They had to be.
The 49ers were a favorite of the Saints, who could get rid of a few of their draft needs.
The Panthers were one of the biggest disappointments in the entire draft.
The Chargers were projected as the best team in the draft, but the Chargers’ draft is still the biggest disappointment.
The Saints were also projected as one of these teams to be the most exciting team in this year’s draft.
The Cardinals were a surprise team to the Saints.
The Cardinals could get better at quarterback in the future.
The Giants had the biggest hole in their secondary.
The Titans had a huge hole in the secondary.
The Panthers are also projected to be one of those teams to have a huge improvement in their draft.
They have a top five overall pick in the NFL Draft.
The Chiefs were one team to think about after the Browns traded up for them.
The Steelers and Raiders were another two teams that were rumored to be interested in the pick.
The Saints will probably take one of two players from this year: the former Oregon defensive tackle Solomon Thomas or former Notre Dame cornerback Jalen Ramsey.
The Seahawks will probably use their first round picks to trade up, but they have to pick one defensive end, and that would be linebacker Stephone Anthony.
If the Seahawks decide to take Anthony, they have a chance to get a first rounder if they trade up.
The 49ers could use their third round pick on the Panthers’ Marcus Williams, who has been on the bubble all season and hasn’t played in a game yet.
The Jaguars are a team that has shown the ability to win without winning games.
The Patriots and Chargers both are teams that are likely to lose a lot of games without winning.
The Browns could use this pick on a defensive lineman, but it’s probably not the best one.
The Dolphins could use it on a cornerback, but that’s a stretch.
The Dolphins’ biggest need is cornerback, so I wouldn’t expect that to happen.
The Chargers could use the pick on one of their own in either an offensive lineman or cornerback, depending on who they take.
The Texans are also a team with a need at safety.
The Falcons could use that pick on either a wide receiver or a defensive tackle.
The Seahawks could use another pick on an offensive tackle, but I wouldn.
The Eagles could use one of both their picks, but you’re not going to see them use that selection on a lineman in this draft.
Instead, the Saints could use two picks in this round on a safety.
That would be cornerback, offensive tackle and wide receiver.
The Broncos, Raiders, Jaguars, Chargers and Saints would all be the teams that could use a wideout.
The Raiders could use either their first or second round picks on a linebacker.
They already have a strong defensive line, so a strong linebacker would be a nice addition to that unit.
The Bengals could use any of their picks on defensive linemen, and it would probably make sense to move on from defensive tackle in this pick.
The Vikings could use all of their first, second and third round picks, so it’s a win-win situation.
The Rams could use whichever pick they like on an inside linebacker.
The Rams have a ton of talent at linebacker, so they should be able to use any one of them on this pick to address a need.
The Giants could use just about any pick they want on a receiver.
I would love to see the Giants take a wide out in this selection, but at this point I’m skeptical of it.
The Jets are in need of a receiver, and they’ve been looking to trade down to get one.
The Redskins would probably want to move up, so that means taking a receiver or offensive tackle in the third round.
The Raiders would probably be interested to see what the Jets get for this pick, so the Raiders could potentially use it to get another receiver.
The Colts would probably use just any pick.
I have to wonder if they want to take a cornerback in this mock.
If they do, they would likely take one.
If not, they could use multiple picks to move from a corner to an inside defensive lineman.
The Lions would likely use just one pick on any defensive lineman in the second round.
