The NFL draft is just nine weeks and six days away, but who’s counting? Well, just about anyone with a blog or any fan of a team with a Top 10 draft pick.
Now there’s talk that perhaps Nebraska’s Ndamukong Suh will not be the first overall pick or the first defensive tackle chosen. NFL Network draft guru Mike Mayock has rated Oklahoma’s Gerald McCoy ahead of Suh.
Mayock is not alone. ESPN’s Todd McShay also has St. Louis taking McCoy with the first overall pick, in part because McCoy is quicker and more disruptive which fills a need for coach Steve Spagnuolo. Suh is generally considered stronger with better instincts.
Meanwhile ESPN's Mel Kiper has Suh at the top of his mock draft.
With the second overall pick, the Lions should get a quality starter. Maybe it will be a guy named Suh.
Or, perhaps the Rams will go with Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford with their No. 1 pick to fill a huge need.
We’ll know the answer on April 22. But who’s counting?
