NFL Mock Draft 3/24

Whoa, wait a minute. This isn't about Dodger baseball or baseball at all! What gives?

Well, I'm an avid follower of the NFL Draft, and I have been every year since 1997 when my favorite team, the St. Louis Rams, took future Hall-of-Famer Orlando Pace with the No. 1 overall pick.

This year has been a little different, though. I haven't kept as up-to-date on information this year. It could be because I'm more dedicated to this blog and it could be because of the labor unrest. I mean, who wants to hear about millionaires arguing with billionaires about money, right? I know that's a simplistic way to look at it, but in the end, that's what it boils down to.

*Gets off soapbox*

Without further ado, here's my first crack at a mock draft this year. Comments are appreciated. Let me know if I totally blew it in some places.
