Final Analysis: Our final mock before the big event. There’s some late banter that Arizona will not take Murray, but I think they have to at this point, especially after the hype video they released last week for the upcoming season where Rosen was included. Unless Rosen has been in on the ruse this whole time, which would make this the Greatest. Smokescreen. Ever. It’s a good thing there will be no cameras on Rosen tonight, because it’s going to be awkward AF – I’m talking Aaron Rodgers green room awkward – once the Cardinals take Murray. Good luck trying to get a first for Rosen, Arizona.

One name that keeps rising is T.J. Hockenson, the do-it-all Tight End from Iowa. There’s rumors a few teams in the Top 10 are enamored with him, including Jacksonville, Detroit, and Buffalo. He would also make a ton of sense in Green Bay. If Detroit gets a little scared about Montez Sweat’s heart condition, they could pull a little bit of a shocker and grab T.J. at 8.

Speaking of Bills Mafia, I think they’re going to do something different for a change and not reach for a need position [cough, J.P. Losman, cough, E.J. Manuel, cough, Leodis McKelvin] and instead let talent be the driver. That would be Jonah Williams, whom I think is the best offensive lineman in the Draft, and also happens to fill a need for Buffalo. The Bills need to protect Josh Allen, on the field and on Twitter. Jonah can at least help with one of those things.

Regarding New York’s real team, I think the Giants will end tonight with a new quarterback on their roster, and I think that quarterback will be Daniel Jones or Josh Rosen. Ideally, the Giants would use both their first round picks on defense (which was and still is their biggest weakness), and then try to get back into the First Round and take Jones (or trade their second round pick for Rosen). But that may be too much of a gamble for the G-Men to take, especially with rumblings that teams ahead of them, like Washington, have Jones on their radar. The Giants would rush the podium if Ed Oliver is still there at 6. Aaron Donald 2.0.

Also, get ready for a bunch of trades tonight. I think there’s some teams that would love to drop back a few spots and collect some additional picks. Don’t be surprised if a team like Washington makes a move to the Top 10 to grab a qb, to get ahead of teams like Denver and Cincy that may be looking at signal callers.

Buckle up, it’s going to be a wild ride tonight!
