SI.com's lastest NFL Mock Draft has quarterback Jameis Winston going No. 1 to Tampa Bay and Marcus Mariota No. 2 to the Tennessee Titans.
This year has brought one of the wildest and most prolific free-agency periods in recent memory—according to NFLP records, teams gave out $589.8 million in new guaranteed contracts and $1.321 billion in total contract value in the first 72 hours of the process. Still, free agency has always been a lead up to the draft when it comes to team development, in a single-year sense and over time. The best teams augment their quality draft decisions with wise free-agency moves and trades, and the stragglers tend to overspend in March and try to play catch-up in April and May.
With over 40 days until the draft, here's one shot at estimating how the first round could go, based on the post-free-agency splurges.
