August Mock Draft

By Arlo Vander

The season is drawing closer, and we know a lot more now than we did when we last held a mock draft back in July. Players have signed with and been dealt to new teams, depth charts have been updated, and we’ve learned a bit more about how this year’s rookie class will fit into the scheme of things. Armed with this new information, it’s time for a new mock!

As with any mock draft, the drafters’ preferences and team needs obviously play a role in their respective choices, and a player’s rank might therefore vary from what you might expect from a cheat sheet compiled outside of actual draft conditions.
