And now for the finale of our NFL Mock draft, picks 21-32. These are the playoff teams that hope to better their campaigns from last year with a Super Bowl Championship.
The beauty of the salary cap is that it keeps the playing field level, at least on paper. Many big names left these playoff teams for larger stacks of cash, leaving voids that they hope can be filled in the draft.
The only team currently without a pick in the first round is the New England Patriots, and like they need one. They traded their 32nd pick to the New Orleans Saints in return for speedy receiver Brandin Cooks.
If the Jets and Browns do pass on a quarterback, as I believe they should, then I could see the first QB having to wait until pick 25 to have their name called. Houston has yet to address QB in free agency, and if one if the top guys are available when it’s their turn to phone in the pick, then it’s highly likely that Savage will have some competition come training camp.
In our podcast, Sports Talk With A Side Of Meatballs, Levi and Ryan are joined by Riley to discuss and dissect each mock draft pick, as well as touch on the Raiders approved move to Vegas and Tony Romo‘s decision to hang up the shoulder pads for a microphone.
