Evan Silva's Final Mock Draft
The NFL draft isn't predictable and no one has any idea what's going to happen. Definitely not me. Not even NFL teams. This is my attempt to match as many players in round one with the teams that will take them, as well as correctly place individual first-round players into the first round. No, I don't think Dee Milliner will fall to No. 30. And I don't think Tyler Eifert will go 31st. I do think there's a chance Eifert lands in San Francisco, though, and I think Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff wants to trade up for Milliner. So that's why those players are in those spots.
The Packers won't draft E.J. Manuel, but they may very well trade down with a team that wants him in the back half of round one. Or, at least, that's what I'm guessing.
* = Not likely to be picked in the projected spot.
Rotoworld draft wiz Josh Norris' final mock is on the flip side.
Don't take this too seriously, folks. Enjoy the draft.
