With the scouting combine over, the trade for number two taken care of and a lot of free agency moves already made it's time to delve into the mock drafts.
To start with, we here at RCS took nine mock drafts, 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. The Common Pick column to the far right shows the most commonly selected player in that position from all the mocks when applicable.
The first two picks are unanimous, and most everyone agrees USC OT Matt Kalil is going to the Vikings third, but recent talk has some questioning that theory. Past the third pick everything gets interesting.
