NFL Mock Draft Compilation 2.2

A few more post combine mock drafts have been released so it's time to update the RCS Mock Draft Compilation. This edition features 9 mock drafts. We placed them next to each other and tabulated the average draft order as determined by these expert mock drafts, listed in the table as RCS Average Selection. This methodology does not take into account team needs. (Click on chart to enlarge).

With the new editions Marcell Dareus has risen to become the top rated pick by average. Blaine Gabbert is rising up and close behind and is actually the top pick in more mock drafts that Dareus, but Gabbert is dragged down by two mocks in which he is selected 7th and 8th (NFL.com and National Football Post). One time top rated picks Da'Quan Bowers and Nick Fairley continue to fall down the draft and are now the 7th and 8th selection by average.

*RCS Average Selection is the mean of all mock drafts and does not take needs into consideration
