Draft season is upon us, and things are heating up with the big night just three weeks away. Since my last mock, Kyler Murray has risen to the consensus No. 1 overall selection, blue-chip college 'ballers such as Derrick Brown, Albert Okwuegbunam, and Raekwon Davis have pulled out of the draft, and many teams have retooled via free agency. The end result is a much (much) different looking projection. It's been four months in the making, but here it is: V2, complete with three rounds. The next and final edition will come draft night, April 25th. It will include three mock rounds, NFL-readiness/potential grades and comparisons for all 1st round draftees, as well as projections for every Miami selection. You can find the current projection attached to this post in PDF format. Note: I am usually not a fan of projecting trades; it only obscures the projection by creating more potentialities. However, as of the time of this writing, it is becoming increasingly apparent that the top three QB's (Murray, Haskins, and Lock) will be drafted 1, 2, and 3, respectively, with the former two QB's being acquired via trade. I decided to project these trades and an additional one between Atlanta and Detroit. They are detailed here. Enjoy. Let me know your thoughts. Trade 1: New York Giants, San Francisco 49ers The Giants have tried to douse the flames of their interest for Dwayne Haskins with obscure media statements, mentioning that he doesn't "fit" their team, and that they aren't even "doing a lot of work on him." It's a valiant attempt at a smokescreen by Gettleman (Giants GM) and Co., but it simply isn't true. Haskins is coveted by New York, as he does in fact fit their archetype at the position; New York, rightfully so, is attempting to save the 1st-round selection it gained in the OBJ trade by avoiding a trade-up scenario. Unfortunately for them, Mike Mayock has convinced everybody and their mothers that if Haskins is available at No. 4, he'll be the pick (he wouldn't be), and as such, New York will end up selling house to land their future franchise QB. The trade makes sense for the '9ers, too, as none of the elite defensive talent (Quinnen Williams, Nick Bosa, Josh Allen, Ed Oliver) fill needs for this squad. The popular projection had been Bosa until San Francisco signed Dee Ford; now, with Ford, Solomon Thomas, Arik Armstead, and DeForest Buckner manning the defensive line, there's no reason not to move down, gather more picks, and address other areas of weakness such as WR, OL, S, CB. Trade 2: Washington Redskins, New York Jets The reason the Giants will be forced to trade to No. 2 rather than No. 3 is because the Redskins will be prepared to out-offer them for the third selection, as they, too, covet Haskins. Gettleman will likely be forced to strike a deal at No. 2, leaving the Redskins to target Drew Lock. Lock, notably, isn't just a consolation prize; he has steadily risen on most draft boards, and of late, there's been talk of him going ahead of Haskins. His phenomenal pro-day and high ceiling have many thinking that he can be the next Patrick Mahomes--or, at the very least, produce early for a franchise. If Washington misses out on Haskins, they will have to leap the Raiders (who, again, have done a nice job of convincing everyone that they are in the QB market), and the Jets happen to be the perfect trade partner. Mike Maccagnan, the Jets' GM, holds just 6 selections in this April's draft--none in the 2nd round--with needs present across the board. C, WR, TE, EDGE, DL, and CB all persist as massive voids that must be filled if they're going to compete this season. As such, I imagine they will be in a hurry to field calls on Thursday night. Trade 3: Atlanta Falcons, Detroit Lions Atlanta has shown a tremendous amount of interest in Ed Oliver throughout the pre-draft process. So much so, it would almost be a shock if they didn't make a move to land him. Oliver, who's expected to have a floor of Buffalo at No. 9, would fill a monumental need for a Falcons team that is desperate for IDL help and must find a way to electrify their pass-rush. Further, Altanta is very much in "win-now" mode, though their Super Bowl window isn't as open as some may lead you to believe. In turn, this lends credence to the thought that they are prepared to go all-in on the upcoming NFL season, even if it means trading into the top 10. I don't think they will hesitate to sacrifice a large amount of capital for a potentially generational player, especially if they believe the move will push their franchise over the top and back into playoff contention. On the flipside, Detroit is rumored to be searching for a trade-down option, having expressed interest in mid-1st options such as T.J. Hockenson, Greedy Williams, and Byron Murphy. Of note, the Chargers are reportedly all over Oliver as well; be on the lookout for a bidding war between these two teams, and potentially a king's ransom for Matt Patricia and his Lions.
