NFL Draft Roundup - Latest Mock Drafts From Around The Web

Last week, Offhanded Dribble posted our Mock NFL Draft for the Chicago Bears which included the Chicago Bears draft projections for the first 6 rounds.  With the NFL potentially announcing an end to the NFL Lockout, the NFL Draft has peaked my interest once again.

Today, we take a look at other projections from around the league.

First Round Pick Projections

Trade out of the 1st round?

The common projections seems to be Derek Sherrod – Offensive Tackle from Mississippi State University.   Jerry Angelo and Tim Ruskell talked NFL draft the other day, and the prevailing thought that came from their press conference was an openness to trade out of the first round:

“It’s a little bit different, but in the end when we get going again
we’ll have gone through all of the processes and had all of the
available avenues to get up to the number, whatever the number is going
to be in terms of roster size,” said Tim Ruskell, Bears director of
player personnel.

“Eventually, it will all work out and you will get to your number.
That is not going to be a problem. If the situation arises where we
could get some extra picks … we would certainly look at that”

More about trade possibilities:

The idea of trading out of the 1st round isn’t foreign to Jerry Angelo.

In Jerry Angelo’s tenure, he does have a history of trading down in the draft to acquire more picks.  Since 2001, when Jerry Angelo took over as General Manager for the Chicago Bears, he has drafted the following players in the first round:
