Can’t hide from my first-round mock draft.
The final scorecoard:
Players who were drafted exactly where I said they would: (5) Andrew Luck (Colts), Robert Griffin III (Redskins), Ryan Tannehill (Dolphins), Michael Floyd (Cardinals), Shea McClellin (Bears).
Players who went to the right team but at a different slot: (3) Matt Kalil (Vikings), Trent Richardson (Browns), Fletcher Cox (Eagles).
First-round predictions who are still available: (8): Jonathan Martin, Cordy Glenn, Janoris Jenkins, Courtney Upshaw, Andre Branch, Stephen Hill, Amini Silotalu, Coby Fleener.
First-round picks that I didn’t have going in the first round (8): Bruce Irvin (Seahawks), Quentin Coples (Jets), Brandon Weeden (Browns), Nick Perry (Packers), Harrison Smith (Vikings), A.J. Jenkins (49ers), Bruce Martin (Bucs), David Wilson (Giants).
Actually getting eight guys to the right teams is better than I usually do. Placing 24 of 32 in the first round, I’m guessing, is way below average.
Probably another long wait in Alameda Friday and Friday night. Unless Reggie McKenzie has got a fairly established player or two he’s looking to unload to get a pick to go along with No. 95, Oakalnd’s pick will be the final one of Day 2. Remember Oakland’s three compensatory picks cannot be included in an trades. They must pick a player.
