Thought this might help get people started on mock drafts - I've finished an NFL draft order based on ESPN's first power rankings of the season. Using this order is a good way to prevent people from making comments like "my favorite team should be ranked much higher, this order sucks!" You can find the power rankings used here:


I listed the teams in reverse order of their rankings on there and made adjustments for traded picks and to remain consistent with the way the draft order is determined. I had to flip the Saints and Steelers because #29/30 have to be the losers of the conference finals, and I bumped the Rams up because the NFC West needed a playoff representative. Hopefully someone finds this helpful! Enjoy!
