In the three weeks since Brooks unleashed his previous mock draft, the buzz surrounding Notre Dame wide receiver Michael Floyd has been substantial. Giving the discussion, Floyd jumped 15 spots in Brooks’ latest mock draft, going No. 7 to the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jaguars desperately need to surround last year’s first-round selection — QB Blaine Gabbert — with offensive talent, and the hope is that Floyd could fill a major team need at receiver.
North Carolina DE Quinton Coples also experienced a big move up, going No. 9 to the Carolina Panthers.
