Notes:


  • Jayden Daniels at 2. Feeling good enough.

  • The pivot point for this entire mock: do the Vikings trade up to 3, 4 or 5 -- or 8 -- or sit. My best guess/sense is Chargers make the move/Vikings wait. I think JJM in Minnesota is his best fit

  • Lots of Byron Murphy to 8 or 9 talk. If the top three WRs are gone, the Bears (who should trade down or picks), talk the DT

  • I'm aware that Colts GM Chris Ballard has never traded up in the first round. Go big or go home. I buy them taking WR. I don't think it's Xavier Worthy. Bowers? I heard that. However, is Ballard going to break his rule about not trading up AND take the bad $$ value TE position as well?

  • Falcons can get a similar caliber edge at 15 if not the same one everyone has been predicting them to take at 8

  • At this point, I'd be surprised if Penix didn't go in the first. The Raiders could certainly trade back into the first, but the risk that Penix is gone by 25-32 has increased.

  • Hearing medical red flags for Fautanu (knee). Not sure how serious, but I'll say causes a drop, and nobody benefits from a player falling more than Baltimore
