Kyle Crabbs’ 2016 Mock Draft

Written by Kyle Crabbs on April 11, 2016


Well, here we are. We’re two weeks away from hope springing eternal for another year for fan bases of all 32 franchises. It’s difficult to call this a Mock Version 1.0 or anything of the sort, I have a confession to make: I don’t particularly enjoy mock drafts. It’s too much of a crap shoot to be able to walk away from any mock and legitimately feel GOOD about your chances to land more than a third of the picks. Draftbreakdown’s Bryan Perez is likely sitting back somewhere laughing (reminder: he won the Huddle Report contest the other year). But this ain’t my cup of tea.

I do recognize the value in connecting dots and trying to think like the teams; so let’s go ahead and give you all some material to hate from me. *As a reminder: This is not a reflection of my draft board. If you’ve caught (read more…)

Nicholas McGee’s Mock Draft Version 2.0

Written by Nicholas McGee on March 11, 2016


It’s exactly a month since my first mock draft and, as expected, much has changed.

While some prospects will seen their status as first-rounders cemented by strong combine showings, others may be sliding down the boards of many teams following events in Indianapolis.

The frantic start to free agency is also likely to have altered many draft boards and, with that in mind, here is my latest look at how things could shake up in Chicago late next month.

NFL Draft Analysts Participate in #TeamBuilderMock

Written by Bryan Perez on February 19, 2016


Several of the NFL Draft community’s analysts and writers have come together to participate in a 22-round “Team-Builder Mock Draft” initiated by Bleacher Report’s Luke Easterling. The participants include three of Draft Breakdown’s Senior Analysts (myself, Joe Marino and Kyle Crabbs) along with USA Today’s Jon Ledyard and Jonah Tuls (who also contributes here), Inside the Pylon’s Shane Alexander, Steeler’s Wire’s Curt “Da Bearded Geek” Popejoy, and bloggers/writers Joe Wedra and Robert Ortiz.  The purpose of this Mock Draft is to construct a team — 22 starters — from this year’s crop of prospects.  It is not a prediction of how the NFL Draft will unfold in April.  Rather, it’s insight into each analyst’s team building methodology.

UPDATE:  The #TeamBuilderMock is complete!  Take a look at the rosters and let (read more…)

Pre-Combine Three-Round Mock Draft

Written by Matt LaPan on February 18, 2016

Tunsil Cover

1) Tennessee Titans: 2015 Record – 3-13

Laremy Tunsil – OT – Mississippi

The Titans are in a great spot to get their franchise left tackle with Tunsil. Protecting their franchise quarterback in Marcus Mariota should be top priority, and this pick proves that the team is doing just that.

2) Cleveland Browns: 2015 Record – 3-13

Jared Goff – QB – California

The Browns have so many needs to fill that it is hard to know where to start. Getting the quarterback of the future is a good start. Goff can make all the throws needed in the NFL, and should give a solid foundation to the rebuilding Browns.

3) San Diego Chargers: 2015 Record – 4-12

Joey Bosa – EDGE – Ohio State

Bosa is arguably the best player in the draft, and is too good for the Chargers to pass on. He brings a (read more…)

Matt LaPan’s Pre-Combine 2016 NFL Mock Draft

Written by Matt LaPan on February 15, 2016


The Senior Bowl has come and gone with tremendous results. Players have both risen and fallen from their time in Mobile. As the calendar moves quickly towards the February 23 NFL Scouting Combine, players are in full preparation for their big moment in front of scouts and coaches. With many questions still to be answered, teams are starting to make draft decisions. Which players are on the rise? Who has fallen the furthest?
