SAINTS 2018 Mock Draft

Let’s journey down south and take a look at two teams in the NFC South. This double dip will cover the two teams I see at the top of the division in the Saints and Falcons. SAINTS 8 Picks Round 1, Pick 27 COURTLAND SUTTON WR SMU 6’033/218 What the Saints really want/need here is a big time… Read More »

VIKINGS & DA BEARS 2018 Team Mocks

With the Draft less than a week away it’s time for a double-dip today from the NFC North: the defending North Champ VIKINGS and the bottom feeding BEARS. DA BEARS look to still be a couple of years away from contention and need some new starting talent. The VIKES look like the team to battle it out with… Read More »

BROWNS 2018 Team Mock

When you own two of the top 4 Picks in the NFL Draft, have a new GM calling the shots and that GM goes into cliche’ mode refusing to disclose which prospects he luvs the most, it creates quite a dilemma for Draftniks and football fans in general. So let Pigskin put your mind at ease and tell… Read More »

JETS 2018 Team Mock

The JETS once had a high count of Picks for this Draft, but went all-in on the QB frenzy and traded up into the third spot for their QB of the present and future.So who do they get… Round 1, Pick 3 SAM DARNOLD QB SOUTHERN CAL 6’033/221 As always happens when a star player actually gets into… Read More »

STEELERS 2017 Team Mock

One of the NFL’s steadiest franchises over the past four decades always needs some immediate help though the Draft and a few more guys with solid potential pro careers. The Rooney family is in it’s third generation of leadership and there is no indication that management styles are changing any time soon. Expect a thoughtful, conservative approach next… Read More »

COWBOYS 2018 Mock Draft

Despite the Jerry Jones propaganda machine, the Cowboys have a lot of holes to fill if they are to pose a serious threat to the Eagles for the NFC East crown in 2018. The cutting of Dez Bryant creates one more hole near the top of their roster, but his contract became untenable against the Salary Cap. Round… Read More »


Like an awful lot of teams around the NFL the Chiefs are a little tough to project for 2018 with John Dorsey gone, and for all intents and purposes the team now almost totally in the hands of ANDY REID. We shall see how Andy does, but for now here are my Picks for them. Don’t forget that… Read More »


The Packers have the most picks of any team in the League this year. It irks me that you might never know it for how little attention and mention they get at NFL Network on their Path to the Draft program. I guess little Green Bay just isn’t sexy enough for NFLN. I would expect that new GM… Read More »

GIANTS Mock Draft 2018

New York Giants The G-Men have many more needs than they do Draft Picks (6) this year. IMO, it would behoove new GM Dave Gettleman to listen carefully to phone calls from teams looking to move up into the QB feeding frenzy top of the Draft. It might be said that the Giants hold the key to the… Read More »

PIGSKIN’S TEAM Mock Drafts 2018

I want to preface this series of Team Mocks with a sad disclaimer. I fear the accuracy and validity of all of these Team Mocks will be rendered more useless than usual because of the Pick trading frenzy that seems to be gripping the NFL this year. But then again much of the trading could be over with… Read More »

RAIDERS 2017 Team Mock Draft

A RB named LYNCH is in the house and I am ready to do one last Mock for Alternative America’s Team. With a healthy DEREK CARR at the helm another good Draft from the McKenzie twins would almost certainly make this team a serious Super Bowl contender in 2017. So let’s help those guys do some talent adding… Read More »

REDSKINS 2017 Team Mock Draft

This may be a very telling year for the ‘Skins in the Draft. With the team parting ways with Scott McCloughan the Draft process is pretty much back in the hands of Bruce Allen, son of the late/great Trader George. Some interesting personnel decisions have already been made this year, including the continued lack of financial commitment to… Read More »

COWBOYS 2017 Team Mock

There is a challenge ahead for the COWBOYS for 2017. They need to prove that the 2016 regular season was not a mirage, and the team is back on track to being a perennial participant in the Play-Offs. They have lots of work to do in the 2017 Draft so here is my attempt to help them out.… Read More »


Just in case someone out there missed it, this team is in total rebuild mode, no matter what DA Bears house mouthpieces tell you. Spin it anyway you want, but when a team just cuts loose players like CUTLER & JEFFERY & others, they are starting that roster over. So, let’s help give them some more new blood… Read More »

BROWNS Mock Draft 2017

This is ny BROWNS team mock which appeared online two weeks ago in the Orange & Brown Report. I have made no changes to what appeared at that website. R1P1 MYLES GARRETT/ER TEXAS A&M 6’5/272 PPR#1 R1P12 MITCH TRUBISKY/QB UNC 6’2/222 PPR#10 R2P33 GAREON CONLEY/CB OHIO STATE 6’0/195 PPR#35 R2P52 DION DAWKINS/OG TEMPLE 6’4/315 PPR#50 R3P65 MARCUS MAYE/S… Read More »

VIKINGS 2017 Team Mock

Two years ago the VIKINGS roster had me thinking they were clearly gaining ground on the PACKERS in the NFC North. Coming off a mediocre 2016 season and losing some key pieces from that roster now has me thinking the team has some major holes to fill and needs an infusion of new young talent at multiple positions.… Read More »

BUCCANEERS 2017 Team Mock

Once the RAIDERS move to Vegas, Florida will lead the NFL with 3 franchises. But only one can currently be considered a Play-Off caliber club and that is the BUCS in Tampa Bay. QB JAMEIS WINSTON has quickly become the cornerstone of the franchise after the BUCS wisely chose him No. 1 overall two years ago. It is… Read More »

SAINTS 2017 Mock Draft

Went on the air over in Louisiana with former NFL WR BILLY RYCKMAN for his Tuesday radio show. I walked through a potential SAINTS Draft with him. Here is that Draft. Round1 Pick11 DEREK BARNETT/DE TENNESSEE 6’3/259 PPR#14 Kinda fun when a serious team need pretty much coincides with a player, or two, who happen to rank near… Read More »

PACKERS Mock Draft 2017

While I was in Wisconsin last week I stopped by the Sports Den in Wausau to talk Draft with Downtown Ollie Burrows. Being in the land of Green & Gold I just had to do a Packers Mock with him on the air. Here are my selections. Round1 Pick29 TRA’DAVIOUS WHITE/CB/RS LSU 5’11/191. PPR#29 Between injuries & VFA… Read More »

EAGLES Mock Draft 2017

More than a few folks believe a solid Draft could help put this team in a position to contend for an NFC East title run. I tend to agree. So here is my attempt to draft some very useful new blood. Round1 Pick14 MARSHON LATTIMORE/CB OHIO STATE 6’0/193 PPR#15 Luckily, filling a big need happens to play into… Read More »

STEELERS Mock Draft 2017

The GBN Report gets a lot of traffic from STEELERS fans, so at the risk of upsetting too many of them, here is my Draft projection for their beloved team. Round1 Pick30 OBI MELIFONWU/FS UCONN 6’4/224 PPR#38 A while back the STEELERS used their 1st Round Pick on an undersized, super active S, by the name of TROY.… Read More »


While the speculation and tension builds for the actual NFL Draft tonight, how about we engage your imagination with another daily double of Team Mock Drafts. INDIANAPOLIS COLTS 6 Picks The 2015 season is long forgotten, by most, and the organization is pressing forward with the same cast of characters running this Draft and a burning need to… Read More »

DOLPHINS/BUCS 2016 Team Mocks

Overall the fan support these days for Florida’s pro football franchises is underwhelming. But then again it’s hard to blame fans for being generally disinterested when you realize how much losing goes on each year by their home teams. Let’s take a quick look this morning at 2 of the Florida franchises. MIAMI DOLPHINS MOCK It seems as… Read More »


It’s time for a double header of Team Mocks as we are only days away from the 2016 NFL Draft. So let’s follow up the Sea Hawks with two teams from their Division who will be efforting to chase them all season: the resurgent CARDINALS franchise and the relocated wanna-be contender the L.A. RAMS. CARDINALS The CARDS have… Read More »

BRONCOS 2016 Team Mock

Here we go again with a look at what the defending Super Bowl champs might do. They have 10 Picks right now, which is a good thing because the team has lost a lot of the key players from that championship team. They are most unsettled at QB with the defection of MANNING & OSWEILER. Even though I… Read More »
