NFL Films’ Greg Cosell took a very different approach to his mock draft, choosing players based on film study and sense of team needs. The main objective of Cosell’s mock is to further discuss the top players by putting them in a draft format. One other caveat: A total disregard for documented off-field problems, character issues, anything that is not a function of on-field play.
There are a number of surprises, like a No. 1 overall pick not named Andrew Luck, and South Carolina’s Stephon Gilmore — not LSU’s Morris Claiborne — is the top defensive back in the draft.
