My first Mock Draft

I'm not going to go into a lot of depth about why I think each person is going where, because I don't have the knowledge of how scouting directors and GM's have operated in the past like Jim Callis or Andy Seiler do. This is just an idea of how I think it's going to go. A few surprises, a few guys higher, a few lower than what talent shows. Lets hope I get a couple right :)
