Phil Steele’s Final Mock Draft

This will be the final version of our Mock Draft. Also there is a trade between Philadelphia and Jacksonville in the first round and no doubt there will be other trades as well but we did not include any others as the timing of the trades would be nearly impossible to forecast. Enjoy the draft and check back here to see how we fared with our picks as we did go against the grain with several picks!

A word of caution, remember these are not necessarily the order of the top players (check my updated top position by position breakdown for that info) but where they fit into that organization’s needs.
