- 3 picks per day. We plan on posting three picks per day here, so be sure to lock your browsers in to Mocking the Draft and check back morning, early afternoon and evening!
- No Trades. Last year, we included trades in our mock draft, which made for entertaining discussion but also caused delays. We're eliminating trades this year in the hopes of getting you picks as quickly as possible, so feel free to offer trade suggestions in the comments section.
- Two Rounds. We went three rounds last year, and time was short when we wrapped up. This year, we will go two rounds - but if we find that there's extra time, we may decide to try to squeeze out that third round. Stay tuned for an update on that situation.
- Partnerships. Partnering with New Era Scouting, each pick will be chock-full of player analysis; we're really excited to have Matt's input on each and every pick this year for that reason. We also have a second partnership in the works that we'll announce over the next couple of days.
The other change for this year is I will not be selecting Indy's pick in the mock draft. Our own shake n bake, who also has his own blog, will make the draft selection. His draft board is as follows for the late second round:
2. Trevor Laws
3. Marcus Howard
4. Cliff Avril
5/6 Matt Forte/Xavier Adibi
