The long-rumored Darrelle Revis trade has been finalized with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers sending the No. 13 overall pick to the New York Jets for the All-Pro corner, which means I'm filing yet another mock draft update. We'll call this version 5.1.
Even before we reach the Jets' first pick at No. 9, there are some significant changes. At No. 6, I have the Browns taking Notre Dame TE Tyler Eifert, the highest he has been in any of my mocks. It was a tough call with CB Dee Milliner still on the board, but it could happen.
Two picks later, Syracuse QB Ryan Nassib makes his first appearance in the first round going to the Bills at No. 8. It should be noted that Geno Smith, my top-rated QB is still likely to go in Round 1 but I continue to struggle to find him a home without the ability to forecast trades.
In my mock 5.0, I had the Jets taking Milliner, but Barkevious Mingo was my choice in the second scenario. In this mock, the Jets take Mingo.
With the 13th pick, I have the Jets taking Tavon Austin, who, ironically, is the player I had slotted for the Buccaneers. Now that I think about it, why did I mess with this thing in the first place? Oh we'll, it's done now.
There are also more changes at the bottom of the draft.
Draft-eligible non-seniors are denoted by an asterisk.
