The world is full of mock drafts in April. Everyone is guessing and no one has any clue what the teams will actually do. In the fantasy world in particular skill position players are overrated, and expectations are that five receivers, three quarterbacks and three tight ends will all go in the first round at the expense of boring old offensive linemen or cornerbacks.
This annual mock draft attempts to redress the balance a little by looking at a defense-only scenario. If the first round in the NFL draft was only for players on the best side of the ball what would happen?
1. Arizona Cardinals – Nick Bosa, DE
Bosa is the best player in the draft. In a defense-only draft where quarterback is not a concern, he’s an easy selection for the Cards. At the moment they just need playmakers and Bosa is the most likely player in the draft to be a high-impact rookie.
