Round Table Mock - Day 2

Our round table is more of a head-to-head this time round as Phil's had to duck out due to work overload. But there are no such restrictions for Gur or Toby today which means that we can bring you up to date with our inaccurate musings (Just the 1 1st round pick from our mock was on the nose last night!) about who could go where when Roger Goodell steps out onto the stage once again.

TPL Roundtable Mock Draft

For this mock draft we've decided to go in a different direction. Rather than doing one individually we decided to split the 1st round between us, adding a little bit of spice to a normally bland affair.

Toby will be taking picks 1, 4, 7 etc while Gur handles selections 2, 5, 8 etc and Phil presides over 3, 6, 9 etc.

So here's mine!

Before getting into it let me just say that I won't be mocking any trades this season. The rookie wage scale that has been bought in has made trading up far more appealing to teams now and as such we saw a flurry of unexpected and influential trades. Trying to predict which teams will dive up the board for a player is even more difficult than a straight forward mock! So let's get into it. There are a few surprises, including 2 Quarterbacks in the top 10....
