Well, we’ve done something regrettable. We managed to put together a first-round mock draft that didn’t include Ezekiel Elliott. We just couldn’t find a team that desperately needed him.

I was panicked, but Andy not so much. After all, we felt good about the players we assigned everywhere else. And we were brave enough to make a pick for the Patriots, with the 60th overall pick. Now that’s good mocking.

Once again, if you missed the first two episodes of the Mock Draft Trilogy you’re killing me. Just taking… money off my kids’…. plates. But if you’re too lazy to go back and listen, here’s how the first 20 picks played out: Here’s Part I, and here’s Part II

1. Los Angeles Rams: Carson Wentz, QB, North Dakota State (yes, Andy and I both think Wentz is the better prospect, though we fully expect L.A. to go Goff)

2. Philadelphia Eagles: Jared Goff, QB, California

3. San Diego Chargers: Joey Bosa, EDGE, Ohio State

4. Dallas Cowboys: DeForest Buckner, DL, Oregon

5. Jacksonville Jaguars: Jalen Ramsey, DB, Florida State

6. Baltimore Ravens: Myles Jack, LB, UCLA

7. San Francisco 49ers: Laremy Tunsil, OT, Ole Miss

8. Cleveland Browns: Vernon Hargreaves, CB, Florida

9. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Kevin Dodd, DE, Clemson (an MMQB PodMock favorite)

10. New York Giants: Laquon Treadwell, WR, Ole Miss

11. Chicago Bears: Ronnie Stanley, OT, Notre Dame

12. New Orleans Saints: Mackenzie Alexander, CB, Clemson

13. Miami Dolphins: Eli Apple, CB, Ohio State

14. Oakland Raiders: A’Shawn Robinson, DT, Alabama

15. Tennessee Titans: Jack Conklin, OT, Michigan State

16. Detroit Lions: Sheldon Rankins, DT, Louisville

17. Atlanta Falcons: Shaq Lawson, DL, Clemson

18. Indianapolis Colts: Cody Whitehair, G, Kansas State

19. Buffalo Bills: Leonard Floyd, EDGE, Georgia

20. New York Jets: Reggie Ragland, LB, Alabama

Now you know everything you need to know to get started on the thrilling conclusion: Mock Draft Episode III.
