First Round Mock Draft – April 20th

Special guest writer Brandon Clark gives you his first round mock. Brandon gives you what he thinks will happen, and then gives the pick HE would make. Enjoy!

1. St. Louis Rams Sam Bradford – QB – Oklahoma

Scouting Report

When drafting first overall, it is more pertinent than ever to choose the Best Player Available.
