The NFL Draft process is in a bit of slow period until the Combine kicks off at the end of the month. This two round mock draft represents a good look at how players are rated before 40 times get factored into the equation. While 40 times are important there’s a tendency for some to overreact to the workouts at the combine.  I want to point out that the majority of my picks are based on team needs and where I have each prospect rated. The one exception is the No. 1 pick where I feel ownership will have a major role in the decision.
