Quick Bold Predictions: Todd Gurley will be off the board at 14th overall at the latest… Shane Ray will fall out of the first round and fall to the Falcons in the second round…DeVante Parker is a top 10 pick… Trae Waynes falls past 17th overall… The Browns make a last second push to trade to get Mariota  but don’t pull through… The Eagles do not take an Oregon Duck… Randy Gregory is drafted early than expected

Trades: NFL teams use this pick value chart during the draft. The first trade mocked includes the Rams moving up in order to select Amari Cooper from the Redskins. The second trade involves the Texans, Cardinals and two notable players. The Texans would trade away the rights to drafting Todd Gurley to the running back needy Arizona Cardinals, pick 152, and a future third round pick. In exchange, the Texans would receive picks 24 and 55.
