The weekly mocks continue to roll along, as does my attempt to offer something a little different each time out. Here, it’s an extended look behind the curtain at the decision-making process that went into the 32 first-round picks.

With each slot in Round 1, you’ll find the usual selection (and explanation), in addition to a backup plan—the idea being to expand the discussion of each team’s needs beyond what is covered with the actual mock selection.

Aside from perhaps Myles Garrett at No. 1, there will be hard decisions to be made at every spot. This is how the internal debates played out for Mock Draft 10.0.
