Things are shifted around a bit for Take 2 of our mock draft (the first take is above, in the photos).
The top three offensive tackles (Luke Joeckel, Eric Fisher and Lane Johnson) now are off the board by the fifth pick. There are two quarterbacks in the top 10, with Ryan Nassib joining Geno Smith. The Bills — coached by Doug Marrone, formerly Nassib’s coach at Syracuse — perhaps are the only team that would value Nassib so highly. But it only takes one team with a top-10 pick to value a player that highly to make that player a top-10 pick, and quarterbacks have a way of being selected far sooner than expected.
Dee Milliner and Star Lotulelei drop a bit but not too far. Manti Te’o moves up, to the Bears at 20th. His best chances of being a first-round pick, it seems, are to the Bears at 20th, to the Vikings at 23rd or 25th or to the Ravens at 32nd. Fellow linebacker Alec Ogletree drops to the Ravens this time.
This is a crazy, uncertain draft, even more so than usual, and those who tell you at this point they know exactly how it’s going to unfold aren’t being truthful.
