Mike Mayock sizes up the NFL draft

With the NFL draft starting Thursday night, let’s cover a wide range of topics on that popular event with NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock, who in my opinion is the top draft guy. Mayock talked with reporters last week.

Mayock feels that offensive tackles will be the key to some of the initial trade movement in the draft. Luke Joeckel (Texas A&M) and Eric Fisher (Central Michigan) are the top two on the board, and either could go first overall to the Chiefs. Oklahoma’s Lane Johnson is the next prospect.
