Free agency has faded and the NFL teams now turn their attention to the upcoming draft. The offseason rosters are set and the vest majority of addition between now and the preseason will come from the draft and the undrafted free agents.
With a clearer picture of what every team needs, Dave Searles and I sat down, discussed and revised our selections. This is the post-free agency NFL mock draft we came up with. Keep in mind this is as it stands today. With Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly steering the boat one never knows what he will do next. Conventional Wisdom does not apply to him. He is changing the way the game is played.
This also doesn’t have a proposed trade in an attempt to move up the draft board to get Oregon Ducks quarterback Marcus Mariota. In a recent article in NJ.com, Kelly was grilled about trading up to get Mariota. According to the article he said he didn’t deal in hypothetical and to move that far up wasn’t practical. But there is an exception to every rule. This leaves the door open which is the way Kelly likes to play it.
