As we have done for a few years, the SB Nation blogs are working through an NFL Mock Draft, with each blog selecting on behalf of their team. With the announcement of the Colts' pick at 29th overall today, the Packers and APC are on the clock at the 30th pick.
Here are the first 29 picks:
|1||TB||Jameis Winston||QB||Florida State|
|6||NYJ||Kevin White||WR||West Virginia|
|11||MIN||Trae Waynes||CB||Michigan State|
|13||NO||Dante Fowler, Jr.||DE||Forida|
|16||HOU||Alvin "Bud" Dupree
|19||CLE (from BUF)||Shane Ray||DE||Missouri|
|24||ARI||Preston Smith||DE||Mississippi State|
|27||DAL||Kevin Johnson||CB||Wake Forest|
|29||IND||Eddie Goldman||NT||Florida State|
|31||NO (from SEA)|
Unfortunately, a few key players we like have gone in the past few selections. Eddie Goldman would have been a very tempting selection, but is now unavailable. Marcus Peters would be as well, but he is gone to Pittsburgh. The same goes for cornerback Kevin Johnson and a few others.
Left at the key positions on the defense are a few tempting prospects. At edge rusher, Eli Harold of Virginia is interesting, as is Jordan Phillips at nose tackle. Cornerbacks Jalen Collins and Quinten Rollins are also available. Furthermore, all the inside linebacker prospects remain, with Eric Kendricks, Paul Dawson, Shaq Thompson, Denzel Perryman, and all the others being out there.
Who would your pick be?
