COMMENT
1 CAR Newton
QB
Auburn
Despite some reports recently to the contrary, I believe the Panthers are still talking themselves into selecting a quarterback and it appears that that quarterback is Newton.
Last two mock drafts was Newton QB
2 DEN Dareus
DT
Alabama
At least I am no longer hearing talk of defensive ends here like there was at the beginning of this process.  That made no sense.  When the Broncos drafted Ayers and moved him to OLB in their 3-4, I felt that was a mistake.  To me, Ayers is a perfect fit as an end in a 4-3.  And while the early TV talking heads  kept mentioning Fox wants his Peppers; I say keep in mind that they were at their best when he had a dominating Kris Jenkins.
Last two mock drafts was Dareus DT
3 BUF Miller
OLB
Texas A&M
It seems many TV talking heads are now coming around to what I have projected since my first mock draft.  That Miller is the guy at this spot.  In spite of Newton going number one, no QBs in this draft blow me away as a sure-fire dominate NFL signal caller.  Yes, there is a lot of potential in the group; but that translates to value later in the draft (although some teams will over-draft a couple of them).  With Fitzpatrick holding the fort, I strongly believe that the Bills will go quarterback in round two, and have a specific target in mind.  If they believe their guy will be gone, I could see them trading up to the bottom of round one if they think their target will be off the board in round two. For now, I have them breaking the hearts of the Arizona Cardinals and grabbing Miller.
Last two mock drafts was Miller OLB
4 CIN Green
WR
Georgia
I'm sorry.  I keep forgetting that logic and the Bengals often do not go hand in hand.  Here, right now, at this spot in the draft,  they are one team I would applaud reaching for quarterback. Specifically, they should draft Gabbert.  While I believe Gabbert  is a reach at this spot, the Bengals would be accomplishing two things with this pick.  The first is getting, what they believe, is their quarterback of the future, and next an excuse to come off their stand of not trading Carson Palmer since (in their future words), "We never expected Gabbert to get by Carolina and Buffalo and that changed everything."  However, with apologies to the TV-talking heads I "mocked" in my earlier posts here, I now surerender and predict Cincinnati will draft a wide receiver here.
Early April  mock draft was Gabbert QB; Last mock draft was Green WR
5 ARZ Peterson
CB
Texas A&M
Now at least there is an opportunity for Arizona to prove what I have felt all along; that they will not select a quarterback here, or even in round two of this draft.  They drafted Skelton last year.  He was suppose to sit a full year or two, but got forced into action when he wasn't ready.  I don't think they have given up on him.  So by not drafting a quarterback, Arizona becomes the most attractive landing spot for a veteran free agent.  Passing on a quarterback will be a smart move for Arizona.  Now to who they will select, the Cardinals wanted Miller, but will gladly settle for Peterson, a player many have as the top player in the draft.
Last two mock drafts was Peterson CB
6 CLE Quinn
DE
North Carolina
This choice will now come down to Quinn or wide receiver Julio Jones.  With their switch to a 4-3 defense, I believe getting a pass rusher is the Browns top priority.  Just look at their depth chart if you don't believe me.
Early April mock draft was Green WR; Last mock draft was Quinn DE
7 SF Gabbert
QB
Missouri
Hmmm, ask yourself this question; does a team that energetically announces that they want to resign Alex Smith need a quarterback? Ahhh, yeah. If the draft unfolds as I have it, look for the 49ers to jump at drafting Gabbert.
Early April  mock draft was Amukamara CB; Last mock draft was Gabbert
8 TEN Fairley
DT
Auburn
This team needs a young QB, but with Gabbert gone, they may wait to draft one in round two.  If they were to go QB here, my gut feel is the Locker would be their guy.  And I think they will give it serious consideration.  For now I have them going need and value with Fairley.
Last two mock drafts was Fairley DT
9 DAL T Smith
OT
USC
Now with Amukamara available, the Cowboys have a decision.  At the beginning of this process I stated, " My gut tells me that one of the offensive tackles will start to make a move up draft boards.  I'm projecting that player to be Tyron Smith."  After his Pro Day it looks like I was right.  So even with Amukamara available I'm sticking with the player I had projected for the Cowboys well before most.
Last two mock drafts was T Smith OT
10 WAS Locker
QB
Washington

For me, I would think, the Redskins need a receiver and even with A.J. Green off the board, this pick should be a no-brainer, Julio Jones.  However, Shanahan is quarterback-centric and quarterbacks can become hot commodities as the draft approaches.  If Shanahan believes he can get a quarterback he is targeting in round two he could pass up Locker here.  However, without a lot of ammunition to move up in round two I look for him to get an itchy trigger finger and draft a player he believes in and wants badly.  Locker becomes his next, no not John Elway; his next Jake Plummer.  Let's hope that is left to his play on the field and doesn't extend to his comments in the press.
Early April mock draft was Jones WR; Last mock draft was Locker QB
11 HOU A Smith
DE/OLB
Missouri
With Quinn off the board and Amukamara available, and Houston also needing a cornerback, all I'm going to do is switch from pass-rushing outside linebacker to cornerback, right?  Wrong!  Just look at new defensive coordinator Wade Phillips defense in Dallas.  He clearly valued pass rush over coverage; better to force quarterbacks to throw quickly than rely on corners to stay with receivers longer.  While some may feel this will be clearly Amukamara, or at least close between them, I don't.  This pick will come down to Smith or Kerrigan.
Early April mock draft was Quinn DE/OLB; Last mock draft was A Smith DE/OLB
12 MIN Liguet
DT
Illinois
Okay, I give in.  Minnesota should draft Mallett.  He is the top quarterback on my board.  But I give in and will off my projection here.  I'm still a bit confused however.  Mallett is up, Mallet is down.  Bad stuff in the press about Mallet.  Teams come to his defense.  Supposedly, he was a player others gravitated to at the Combine.  I think he'll be fine off the field and putting him on a team with Peterson, would have made this a dangerous offense.  Do opposing defenses put a safety in the box to stop Peterso;, or do they protect deep against the big arm of Mallett?  If Minnesota drafts Mallett, kudos. Here is an interesting article on Mallett that strengthens my take on him as the top quarterback in the draft (click on slideshow to get to additional pages in the article).  Now on to my projection.  For years the Vikings' strength on defense was their ability to shut down the run.  There were cracks in the Williams' Wall last year and Minnesota will look to draft a defensive tackle to start re-building the interior of their defensive line.  Liguet is a highly regarded prospect.
Last two mock drafts was Mallett QB
13 DET Jones
WR
Alabama
There are some teams I have confidence in, that if they see something that they didn't expect, or that doesn't fill an obvious need, that they will pull the trigger and shake things up.  The way the Lions have approached the draft recently gives me confidence in them.  Think about Detroit lining up Jones opposite Calvin Johnson.  While that's scary on paper, it is even more frightening to opposing defenses on the field.  An alternative could be Amukamara.
Early April mock draft was Costanzo OT; Last mock draft was Jones WR
14 STL Bowers
DE
Clemson
Too bad, St. Louis.  You almost had Julio Jones fall into your laps.  When you think of Spagnuolo’s defenses with the Giants, you think pass rushers, pass rushers, pass rushers.  Since the Head Coach puts a value on that skill, and Bowers fell due to not being fully healthy, I have him selecting a player that could be a steal at this spot.
Last two mock drafts was Bowers DE
15 MIA Ingram
RB
Alabama
There is a reason why a large number of mock drafts have Ingram going to Miami here.  They desperately need a running back.  And unless they trade down they have no second round pick.  While a good running back could be available in round three, it's too big of a risk to take.  So if Miami trades down and gets a second round pick in return, they go off of Ingram.  If not, Ingram should clearly be their guy.  
Last two mock drafts was Ingram RB
16 JAC Amukamara
CB
Nebraska
If the draft unfolds as I have it, Jacksonville will have a tough choice between Watt, Kerrigan and Amukamara.  Based on their draft board as well as need, I would expect them to go with Amukamara, although Watt wouldn't surprise me.
Early April
mock draft was Watt DE; Last mock draft was Amukamara CB
17 NE Jordan
DE
California
When the Pats were dominate their defensive line consisted of large, athletic, first round picks. Therefore, I see this pick coming down to who they have more highly rated for their system, Watt or Jordan.  While I have Watt more highly-rated, I would look for New England to draft  Jordan since he is the more traditional 3-4 defensive end.
Last two mock drafts was Jordan DE
18 SD Watt
DE
Wisconsin
Whoever the Patriots take between Jordan and Watt, I look for the Chargers to draft the other player.  Watt is more of a pass-rusher than Jordan and the player I think San Diego preferred a bit anyway. 
Early April 
mock draft was Wilkerson DE; Last mock draft was Watt DE
19 NYG Austin
DT
North Carolina
With Liguet off the board the Giants will have to decide between an offensive tackle or a defensive tackle.  I started this process thinking offensive tackle, but became convinced that Liguet would be their guy.  When I analyze their roster, draft history and roster I am convinced that if the board unfolds as I now have it, that they will draft Austin over an offensive tackle.  However, I could see them going with Costanzo. 
Last two mock drafts was Liguet DT
20 TB Kerrigan
DE
Purdue
With the Talib issues cornerback will now be considered here as well as defensive end.  However, the best corner available based on talent, Jimmy Smith, has off-the-field questions.  After experiencing Talib, I would doubt Tampa Bay would go in that direction.  So, the Bucs need a pass rusher and with Ryan Kerrigan available in my mock draft, run up to hand in this card to secure the talented pass rusher.
Early April
mock draft was A Smith DE; Last mock draft was Kerrigan DE
21 KC Taylor
DT
Baylor
You need a big strong nose tackle in the middle of a 3-4 defense.  Taylor is a big, strong kid who has had a good post-season.  This pick could also be Costanzo if the Chiefs believe he can be their left tackle of the future, allowing Albert to kick inside where he will be a stud.
Last two mock drafts was Taylor DT
22 IND Costanzo
OT
Boston College
At this spot the Colts will have their pick of offensive tackles.  I think the choice comes down to Costanzo, who is more ready now; and the highly-athletic Solder, who needs some work, including getting stronger, but has a tremendous upside.  With their need, I say the Colts go for now over potential.
Early April mock draft was Solder OT; Last mock draft was Costanzo OT
23 PHI J Smith
CB
Colorado
Time to re-think.  Since the Eagles need is right tackle, and it is easier to get one of those in round two or three, my current thinking is that Philly will pull the trigger and take a chance on Jimmy Smith.  There is no questioning his on-field talent, and he has a strong coaching staff and locker room (including Vick) to help him out.Carimi is a steal for the Eagles at this spot.  He is a good fit for right tackle.  He will provide dividends immediately. Sherrod, an underrated prospect, who will be a solid  tackle for many years will also be considered.
Early April mock draft was Sherrod OT; Last mock draft was Carimi OT
24 NO Clayborn
DE
Iowa
While Wilkerson may be the top defensive end available, he isn't a good fit for the Saints.  On the other hand, Clayborn, if healthy, could be a steal.  I recently read a report that teams haven't been put off by his medical condition so the Saints get a potential steal.  
Early April
mock draft was Kerrigan DE; Last mock draft was Clayborn DE
25 SEA Mallett
QB
Arkansas
If you didn't read the article I linked to in the Minnesota write-up, here it is again (click here).  It was further support for me in my opinion that Mallett should be the top rated quarterback in the draft.  I believe Pete Carroll knows that and will grab Mallett here since it's beginning to look more and more like Hasselbeck will not be resigned.  Also, the Seahawks made a mistake trading for Whitehurst.  He is  NFL-ready and could start day one (assuming he gets time to learn the Seahawks offense). 
Last two mock drafts was Ponder QB
26 BAL Wilkerson
DE
Temple
Should I rely on what I'm reading or my gut? What I'm reading is defensive end and they like Wilkerson  My gut is if Jimmy Smith is available, he is a needed commodity, a good fit and will be drafted into a team that should keep him controlled off the field.  Oh well, at least I went with "writing-heads" and not "talking-heads".  Man, it's a "Wild Wild Life".
Early April
mock draft was Heyward; Last mock draft was Wilkerson DE
27 ATL Pouncey
OG
Florida
Everyone says defensive line or receiver here.  However, the way the draft has unfolded I believe the Saints go offensive line.  Both starting guards are free agents.  And while the Falcons drafted some young guards last year, none have the talent of Pouncey.  The Falcons wanted his brother, Maurkice last year, and will be very happy to draft Mike this year.
Last two mock drafts was Pouncey OG
28 NE Houston
OLB
Wisconsin
This 270 pound kid can run, is quick and is an excellent pass rusher.  He is a perfect fit for the Patriots' 3-4.  He could be one of the steals of the draft.  I just read (Rotoworld.com) that Houston failed a drug test at the Combine (marijuana.  If that is true then the Pats won't draft him.  There board is titled to kids who love the game above all else.  This is an indication that that is not the case with Houston.  For simplicity sake at this point in my mock draft process, move Reed OLB Arizona here and follow the blue writing to see the other impacts if Houston did indeed make this big mistake.
Last two mock drafts was Houston OLB
Prior picks: Jordan DE
29 CHI Solder
OT
Colorado
The Bears were hoping one of the offensive tackles fell here and a couple have.   In addition, the  defensive tackles they hoped for are off the board.  Solder is a very athletic and a player who has the potential to be a very good left tackle and, therefore, is the pick over Carimi.
Early April mock draft was Sherrod OT; Last mock draft was Solder OT
30 NYJ Heyward
DE
Ohio State
Ping pong time.  With Heyward now available, I have the Jets going back him.  He has been alternating with Brooks Reed throughout my mock draft process.
Early April
two mock draft was Reed OLB; Last mock draft was Heyward DE
31 PIT Carimi
OT
Wisconsin
With Carimi now available my hunch (Dowling) takes a back seat.  The Steelers need help at tackle and Carimi is a player who would have gone higher in other years.
Last two mock drafts was Dowling CB
32 GB Sherrod
OT
Mississippi St
Time to re-think.  The Packers have had success drafting receivers in rounds two and three.  So with the underrated Sherrod available, I am look for the Packers to draft a player to help protect their quarterback and grab a wide receiver down the line despite Hankerson having the look and feel of a Packers' receiver and Smith's big-play ability.
Last two mock drafts was Smith WR

COMMENT
33 NE Watkins
OG
Baylor
The Patriots' continue to add quality talent.  Their offensive line has some uncertainties and age and Sherrod is a first round talent.
Early April
mock draft was Watkins OG; Last back draft was Sherrod OT
Prior picks: Jordan DE, Houston OLB
34 BUF Kaepernick
QB
Nevada
This is the quarterback I believe the Bills are targeting.  He has the mobility and athleticism that Chan Gailey likes, and has a big arm.  With Fitzpatrick on the roster, Kaepernick can sit and learn for a year or two.  Yes. Kaepernick over both Ponder and Dalton.
Last two mock drafts was Kaepernick QB
Prior picks: Miller OLB
35 CIN Ponder
QB
Florida St
With Ponder available, things worked out for the Bengals.  I like Ponder more than Dalton. So the Bengals get their quarterback after selecting a player who could be the best in the draft in round one.
Early April
mock draft was Hankerson WR; Last mock draft was Dalton QB
Prior picks: Green WR
36 DEN Wilson
ILB
Illinois
So he had a bad day in drills at his Pro Day.  Don't we all have bad days from time to time.  Despite what is being written, Wilson is not just a workout warrior.  He was atop Mike Mayock's inside linebacker board prior to the Combine.  He is a rare athlete for a middle linebacker and will be a stud in the middle for years to come for the team that drafts him. 
Last two mock drafts was Wilson ILB
Prior picks: Dareus DT
37 CLE Paea
DT
Oregon State
While a receiver makes sense, and there are good ones available here, I see Cleveland continuing to build their new 4-3 defensive line grabbing a player who holds the record for the most bench presses at the Combine.
Early April
mock draft was Clayborn DE; Last mock draft was Austin DT
Prior picks: Quinn DE
38 ARZ Rudolph
TE
Notre Dame
With Watkins now unavailable, I have Arizona going back to the Rudolph, the best tight end in the draft.  Arizona has tried the athletic later-round prospect types; now it's time to draft a player they expect will turn into a major weapon.
Early April
mock draft was Rudolph TE; Last mock draft was Watkins OG
Prior picks: Peterson CB
39 TEN Dalton
QB
TCU
The Titans just hang on to get the last of the top seven quarterbacks.  Here they get one who can step in rigfht away, but one I think will peak at a serviceable starter, not a difference-maker.
Early April
mock draft was Locker QB; Last mock draft was Stanzi QB
Prior picks: Fairley DT
40 DAL Dowling
CB
Virginia
Interesting mock spot for me.  I am probably one of the only (if not only) draft analysts who has Curtis Brown rated as his number three cornerback.  Both Dowling and Harris are rated more highly on other boards. I could see Dallas drafting either Harris or Dowling.  In the end I think Jerry Jones will be too intrigued by Dowling's athleticism to pass him up.
Last two mock drafts was J Smith CB
Prior picks: T Smith OT
41 WAS Smith
WR
Maryland
The Redskins could go for a new toy for their new quarterback here or a nose tackle.  Since the nose tackle I was looking at for them at this spot comes with off-the-field issues (Kendrick Ellis), I think they'll pass.  Torey Smith is not only a good receiver with speed, but a terrific kid.  He wins the day at this spot.
Early April
mock draft was Dalton QB; Last mock draft was Paea DT
Prior picks: Locker QB
42 HOU A Williams
CB/FS
Texas
Williams will be drafted as a cornerback by the Texans and he will be a solid one.  However, if it doesn't work for him there, I have him rated as the top free safety in the draft and that is also a position of need for the Texans.
Last two mock drafts was A Williams CB/FS
Prior picks: A Smith DE/OLB
43 MIN Stanzi
QB
Iowa
The Vikings lose out on the top seven quarterbacks.  However, there is a player I like a lot and just maybe, Minnesota does too.   In my opinion Stanzi should be mentioned with the second tier of quarterbacks.  This may be a surprise to some if it happens, but not to me.  I expect him to be a very good NFL starting quarterback.
Early April 
mock draft was Paea DT; Last mock draft was Casey DT
Prior picks: Liguet DT
44 DET Ayers
OLB
UCLA
This will only happen if teams in need of an outside linebacker have a similar grade on Ayers as I do.  Most have him as a sure-fire first round pick.  So this is a mixed blessing for Lion fans who see this.  If I'm wrong this would be a steal, but he may not be available.  If I'm right this becomes a solid pick, drafting Ayers where I have his value, not a steal.
Last two mock drafts was Ayers OLB
Prior picks: Jones WR
45 SF Reed
OLB
Arizona
The 49ers need a pass rushing outside linebacker.  Reed is available again so I have them drafting him over Moch.  If what I read is true, and Houston DE/OLB Wisconsin failed a drug test at the Combine (marijuana), then I have the Pats taking Reed and the 49ers would also pass on Houston and draft Moch OLB Nevada.  Continue to follow the blue to see my projected impact.
Early April
mock draft was Moch OLB; Last mock draft was Reed OLB
Prior picks: Gabbert QB
46 DEN Moore
FS
UCLA
The Broncos continue to rebuild their defense.  Both Burton and McGrath are strong safety types.  Moore is a ballhawking free safety, a position of need and good value at this spot in the draft.
Last two mock drafts was Moore FS
Prior picks: Dareus DT, Wilson ILB
47 STL B Carter
OLB
North Carolina
The Rams desperately need a 4-3 outside linebacker, whether a SAM or a WILL.  A gutsy pick here would be the smallish Rolle who is a tackling machine.  I would do it, but I'm only mocking.  Therefore, I have them going with Bruce Carter to be their SAM.  If he wasn't injured before the draft he could have gone higher.
Last two mock drafts was B Carter OLB
Prior picks: Bowers DE
48 OAK Ijalana
OG/OT
Villanova
Yes, I know there are speed guys still on the board, but the Raiders can get some speed later.  For now they need a potential replacement for Gallery who may leave in free agency.
Early April
mock draft was Boling OG; Last mock draft was Ijalana OG/OT
49 JAC Bailey
DE
Miami
The Jaguars need a defensive end who can get pressure on the quarterback.  This pick could come down to Sheard or Bailey.  If Houston drops because what I read is true about him failing a drug test at the Combine (marijuana), then he will be available here and will be considered along with Bailey.  However, I have the Jaguars taking the larger prospect and will stay with that projection even with Houston falling.  Continue following the blue to see where I would project Houston to be drafted.
Early April
mock draft was Cu Brown CB; Last mock draft was Bailey DE
Prior picks: Amukamara CB
50 SD Baldwin
WR
Pittsburgh
The Chargers like big, fast receivers and Baldwin fills that need.  One of these days San Diego is going to have to pony-up for Vincent Jackson or lose him.  Baldwin gives them some flexibility in that regard.
Last two mock drafts was Baldwin WR
Prior picks: Watt DE
51 TB Harris
CB
Miami
The bold move would be to draft Rolle, a player I have a first round grade on (I may be the only draft analyst who does).  Rolle is a perfect fit for their scheme and would give them their best sideline-to-sideline WILL since Brooks.  However with the Talib mess and corners Harris and Curtis Brown available, I look for the Bucs to grab Harris.
Last two mock drafts was Rolle OLB
Prior picks: Kerrigan DE
52 NYG LeShoure
RB
Illinois
On the surface the Bradford/Jacobs/Ware trio looks solid.  However, the Giants are a team that prefers to draft a year early rather than a year late.  There were cracks in the Giants' rushing armor last year.  LeShoure will be their future lead back.
Last two mock drafts was LeShoure RB
Prior picks: Austin DT
53 IND Casey
DT
USC
Hmmm, re-thinking.  I'll change from my momentary thought of a wide receiver. As mentioned, I like Blair White and believe he can be a very good NFL player.  Here's anticipating the Colts do to.  Casey would be an upgrade at defensive tackle for the Colts.
Early April
mock draft was Austin DT; Last mock draft was Hankerson
Prior picks: Costanzo OT
54 PHI Cannon
OT/OG
TCU

Franklin
OT/OG
Miami

Cannon is strong and has quick feet and will be a solid right tackle in the NFL.  Worst case he can be kicked inside to guard.  Both positions are positions of need for the Eagles.  However, I just read:  "A biopsy on TCU G/T Marcus Cannon revealed that he has a treatable form of lymphoma, and he will begin chemotherapy on Wednesday" (Rotoworld.com).  Unfortunately this will impact his draft status.  I wish the kid well and suspect a team will draft him late or sign him as a priority college street free agent (when allowed) and stash him on the non-football/illness list just as Rotoworld conjectures.  So the selection now becomes Orlando Franklin  OT/OG Miami. He played left tackle last year, but projects as a right tackle or guard in the NFL. 
Last two mock drafts was Harris CB
Prior picks: J Smith CB
55 KC Hankerson
WR
Miami
If the draft unfolds as I have it mocked; the Chiefs consider themselves lucky that Hankerson is still available here.  He is my third ranked receiver in the draft, a player I have a first round grade on.

The Seahawks need a cornerback and there is a very good one, Curtis Brown, for them to grab here.  I have him rated more highly than most.  He is my number three corner.

Prior picks: Mallett QB
58 BAL Jernigan

Troy
Talk about a perfect fit.  With cagey and physical old pros at wide receiver, this speedy waterbug is just what this offense needed.  He will be their slot receiver and help out converting first downs, and making big plays from the get-go.
Last two mock drafts was Jernigan
Prior picks: Wilkerson DE
59 ATL Gates
WR
Abilene Christian
The choice here could come down to defensive end (Sheard) or wide receiver.  While Biermann didn't get many sacks last year he was among the leaders in quarterback pressures.  So with the speedy and talented Gates on the board I would look for the Falcons to draft him to open up the field for White and Gonzalea.
Early April

Williams could develop into their starting running back.  Green-Ellis did a great job, but Williams has more upside.
Last two mock drafts was Williams RB
Prior picks: Jordan DE, Houston OLB, Watkins OG
61 SD Moch
OLB
Neveda
Moch is a tremendous athlete and a good pass rusher. Call it Larry-English-insurance.  Not to mention that Phillips is coming off a career year and will have to repeat for me to believe he is that dominate a player. This is where I believe Houston would fall to.  So if the rumor of a failed drug test for Houston at the Combine is true (marijuana), then at the end of round two he would be worth the risk by San Diego, especially with Moch gone in that scenario.  So the pick would be Houston OLB Wisconsin.
Early April
mock draft was C Carter OLB; Last mock draft was Moch OLB
Prior picks: Watt DE, Baldwin WR
62 CHI Cobb
WR
Kentucky
Cobb is a good fit in Chicago's offense.  However, he will not be a number one, just another good player to add to their receiver rotation.
Last two mock drafts was Cobb WR
Prior picks: Solder OT
63 PIT Rackley
OG
Lehigh
Right guard was a revolving door for awhile for the Steelers last year.  Rackley would help the Steelers with its running game and Foster is available to allow the small school prospect time to grow into a starting role.  This could also be Boling depending on who the Steelers like better.
Last two mock drafts was Rackley OG
Prior picks: Carimi OT
64 GB Little
WR
North Carolina
Now that I have the Packers drafting offensive line in round one and not wide receiver, I believe they go receiver here if one they like falls.  Little is a good fit for Green Bay.
