FoxSports Peter Schrager shares his post-combine mock draft.
With the NFL Scouting Combine behind us, I’ve updated my two-round mock draft and it's a bit of a shocker. Cam Newton climbs the draft board, his former teammate takes a tumble and a Boise State player cracks the first round for the second straight year.Rest assured, between now and draft weekend on April 28-30, there will be plenty of changes.
Up ahead are pro days, on-campus workouts at each of the players’ respective schools (or nearby schools) in which scouts come to get a closer look at prospects. The most anticipated pro days are Auburn’s and Arkansas’ (both being held on March 8th), Alabama’s (March 9), North Carolina’s (March 31), and Missouri’s (March 17).
I envision a downright crazy first two hours of the draft. An unexpected mad rush on quarterbacks, top defensive line prospects falling out of the top 10 and teams doing all they can to find the perfect fits to their systems — this draft should make for one for the ages. Add in the fact that we might still be in the midst of a work stoppage, and it could get even nuttier.
