Easter Mock Draft by Will Spencer

Written by Will Spencer on April 20, 2014



As a fun holiday gift, here’s a brand new mock draft that includes some major trades. In this mock, the 49ers have clearly made the decision to plan for life without Aldon Smith and make a major move all the way up to #2 to grab Jadeveon Clowney. To do this, they give St. Louis picks 30 (Round 1), 56 (Round 2), 77 (Round 3) and 2015’s 1st round pick. Pick 56 was obtained by the 49ers from Kansas City and pick 77 came from Tennessee, so even after this trade, they still have three picks in rounds 2-3 (61, 94 and 100). Since the Rams already hold the 13th pick in the draft, they’re happy to continue to build their young and talented team through the draft.

Minnesota moves back to #13 and still picks up Teddy Bridgewater. The Rams chose to move up from #13 after just trading out of the #2 spot, giving the Vikings pick 13 (Round 1) and pick 75 (Round 3).

Trades
San Francisco trades picks 30, 56, 77 and 2015 1st round pick to St. Louis
St. Louis trades pick 2 to San Francisco

St. Louis trades pick 13 and 75 to Minnesota
Minnesota trades pick 8 to St. Louis
