The Scouting Combine takes place this week in Indianapolis, and with that, the entire NFL Universe shifts its attention towards the draft. So far this offseason, it’s been all about the seniors and what they’ve done to improve draft status. And now, it’s the underclassmen’s chance to show their abilities for the first time on an All-Star level stage and impress the scouts.
The infusion of young talent in this year’s draft is obvious, as I project 18 seniors and 14 underclassmen being selected in the first round. Not much has changed in my projections for the first round since my last mock draft release on February 6th, but in this version, I debut my second round mock draft.
With that said, the intrigue builds as we get closer to the day that will change the lives of approximately 252 players. But for now, I’m going to forecast the future of 64 players.
The Detroit Lions are on the clock…
