With the draft pushed back to early May this year, NFL analysts have had extra time to develop and polish their mock drafts. One thing is for sure, South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney is a lock for the first overall pick in the eyes of the experts.
Things get a little tricky after that, with three quarterbacks believed worthy of Top 10 selections. UCF's Blake Bortles, Louisville's Teddy Bridgewater and Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel are spread throughout the first 10 picks. Somewhat surprisingly, the majority of analysts believe the Oakland Raiders will pass on a quarterback, instead choosing the best receiver in this year's class, Clemson's Sammy Watkins.
The Chicago Bears have the 14th overall pick in this year's draft and opinions vary widely as to who the team will be selecting in that spot. Pittsburgh DT Aaron Donald received the most votes at just three. Seven other players were selected for the Bears at 14, including Alabama LB C.J. Mosley, Florida State DT Timmy Jernigan, Alabama S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Michigan State CB Darqueze Dennard and even Minnesota DT Ra'Shede Hageman, whom many believe to be a borderline first rounder.
Interestingly, Donald is also the top vote getter for the New York Giants, who have the 12th overall selection.
In the second round, things are even more nebulous for the Bears. Northern Illinois S Jimmie Ward is the top pick with two votes, while 10 other prospects were mocked in at the 51st overall selection.
