Mock draft 2.0: Free agency, trades shed light on teams' intentions

Mock drafts

While Pat Kirwan thinks highly of Jason Smith, where do and NFL Network experts see the Baylor offensive tackle going in April's draft? How about other top prospects?

The NFL Scouting Combine is over, free agency has started with a bang as signings have been fast and furious, which also provides some clues as to the direction teams will go in the draft.

Trades are also on the upswing, and those moves shed some more light on draft intentions as well as the few big-name terminations.

Pro days will take center stage in March, with 20 college pro days scheduled in the first week. Draft-eligible players who performed well at the combine will skip the running and concentrate on the position drills, while the young men who ran poorly will give it another try and times can change dramatically.

Here's a look at my second version of the mock draft, with a slight change in the top 5 that had a ripple effect down through the rest of the draft. Of the 32 first-round picks, 31 remain from last week's mock draft, but there are 16 changes as to which teams select those players because of all the personnel moves this past week.
