Doug and Wolf held their annual Mock Draft presented by Bud Light at Tilted Kilt in downtown Phoenix Friday afternoon.
Thirty-two players were selected by “general managers” representing the 30 teams who have a first round pick (Washington and Seattle don’t have one).
There were some interesting selections made by our GMs.
The eyebrow-raisers got started early when Oakland GM Patrick Brown reached for Notre Dame tight end Tyler Eifert with the third overall selection.
Buffalo GM Jason Mazenauer took the first quarterback at number eight — and it wasn’t West Virginia’s Geno Smith! It was USC’s Matt Barkley who got the call to head to the Bills.
And in the biggest stretch of the first round, St. Louis GM Nick Kieffer picked Arizona State linebacker Brandon Magee at 22nd overall. We all love Brandon, but come on, man!
The GM for the Arizona Cardinals, Randy Nez, also delivered a head-scratching pick when he announced the name of Florida defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd at number 7, despite the fact that offensive linemen Lane Johnson of Oklahoma and Chance Warmack of Alabama were still on the board.
