Ethan Hammerman and I have decided to hold a Mock Draft in the comments. Get at it.
We will allow trades. I have odd pick numbers. Ethan has even pick numbers (meaning that he gets both of Cleveland's picks).
If you're interested in learning more about the draft, I highly recommend looking at Draft Breakdown, a website created to provide cut-ups of college games so everyone can create their own evaluations.
We have our own draft section at the Pulpit right here, where we'll start to add more and more information as we head towards the draft. I'll start to evaluate my top Patriots prospects right after free agency starts on March 10th to help offer some draft names to catch your interest.
If you're interested in understanding how the Patriots evaluate their draft prospects, here's a little cheat sheet with questions the New England scouts asks themselves when grading a player.
So without further ado, we'll start the draft in the comments!
