We're two weeks out, meaning the silly season has essentially arrived.
Two fresh dueling mock drafts have arrived from ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay, with the added suggestion that if teams follow their advice, they'll earn instant A grades. The official NFL draft attendees were also announced this week, featuring one notable absence.
Dane Brugler's seven-round mock draft, an excellent companion to his annual draft guide, hit the internet this week. Nathan Zegura talks with Brugler about players rising and falling on various draft boards, the curious case of Ed Oliver and where Brugler sees the Browns going in the second and third rounds. Plus, Brugler takes on the daunting task of mocking all eight of the Browns' picks, including two cornerbacks between the third and fifth rounds.
Jason Gibbs and Nick Shook (standing in for Andrew Gribble) return to discuss the surprises from Brugler's mock, the savvy picks and the concern surrounding the Browns being projected to wait until the sixth round to select a certain position. Depth is the key word here, as this podcast is jam-packed with information rarely found elsewhere.
