2008 NFL Mock Draft – Round 1

My mock draft is going to be a little different than most, but believe me, that’s a good thing. What I’m going to do is let everyone know whom I would take in the first round if I were making millions deciding which way my NFL franchise should invest.

I will also predict whom each NFL team will take on draft day. Players will officially go off my board when the “they will pick” section is completed. For example, if I would pick McFadden, and they pick Glenn Dorsey, Glenn Dorsey is the guy off the board, and I can still choose McFadden later. I’m not taking into account what “other” mock drafts are predicting, and I’m definitely not listening to my uncle – this is what I think after watching games of every single player in my first round. Enjoy the ride – this is the best part of the year. The poor become rich in just a blink.
