You’ve been driving down the roads of the NFL calendar year, but perhaps you haven’t turned on to the NFL Draft highway yet. There have been highway ramps before this, the Senior Bowl is one, the end of the Super Bowl is another. If you didn’t take any of those on ramps, it’s time to get on this one, the one titled “Scouting Combine” — no tolls required.
If you’re a football fan, whether obsessed or casual, it’s hard to not get into or at least in some way follow the Combine. This is where, for the first time, players of all ages, both seniors and underclassmen, go toe-to-toe in their positional groups to see who takes the athletic crown among them.
There is always some moving a shaking that is done pre- and post-Combine, so we’ve decided to give you a Pre-Combine mock to gauge your interest and have some players on your radar as we go into a fun and busy week in Indianapolis.
As always, you can view the entire mock draft in the table below, but if you want more explanation about each pick or the trade, you can click the analysis button and it will take you to that page.
Hopefully that makes it easy to navigate. Don’t forget to comment and tell us what you loved and hated about it, even if it doesn’t have to do with your team.
