A TON Of Changes!

So we see some significant changes, like Carolina trading up to #1 and taking their QB of the future. We finally see Green Bay with a player mocked OTHER than Michael Mayer at #15. We are seeing the side effects of guys that had great weeks at the NFL Scouting Combine. 

With free agency (officially) beginning today, I expect a lot of changes to take place. I know for sure Detroit’s almost certainly out of the Bijan Robinson sweepstakes with David Montgomery coming to town. Dallas is back in the mix after (potentially) releasing Ezekiel Elliott but who knows with them?

I will say, I like a lot of the landing spots if this was how it really happened. The offensive lineman ALL seem to be fits with their landing spots, most of the DBs went to spots where they make sense as well.

As always if you want to talk all things football, hit me up on Twitter or over on the Draft Countdown Discord! And check out the rest of my work here.
