The first mock draft will be on Wednesday, and for this week, there was some final shuffling. Earl Thomas from the Texas Longhorns went from off the Board last week to No. 11 (because he finally declared), and Bryan Bulaga of the Iowa Hawkeyes (along with Trent Williams of the Oklahoma Sooners) jumped on to the Board as OL at No. 20 (Bulaga) and No. 22 (Williams). The top five -- Suh, McCoy, Berry, Clausen and Bradford -- remained the same from last week.
