Mock Monitor 3.0

Could Kansas State linebacker Arthur Brown, right, become a popular pick among the mock drafts?

The picks changed slightly in our weekly look at a sampling of mock drafts from around the Web, but Notre Dame tight end Tyler Eifert is once again the majority pick of our panel of experts, beating out Stanford tight end Zach Ertz for the second week in a row.

A good number of the mock drafts weren’t updated, and for good reason. With the NFL Scouting Combine beginning this week, things could look very, very different a week from now once all the numbers are in.

Still, there were a couple of notable changes worth pointing out. The first is the addition of NFL.com’s Josh Norris, who goes with Bleacher Report’s Scott Carasik and selects Kansas State inside linebacker Arthur Brown for the Falcons at No. 30 overall. I imagine, as we go through the next two months, we’ll see more experts breaking away from the “obvious” pick like tight end or defensive end. That’s not to say they’ll be any more correct than anyone else, but we’ve seen the past two years where the mocks continually disagree with one another as we draw closer to the draft.

CBSSports.com’s Rob Rang and Dane Brugler changed their picks this week with Rang going with Texas DE Alex Okafor and Brugler introducing a new name to the Mock Monitor this week in Florida State defensive end Cornellius Carradine.

And the final (non) change was FoxSports.com’s Pete Schrager, who updated his mock draft before the Combine, yet still has the Falcons going with Florida State cornerback Xavier Rhodes. Schrager seems pretty set on this selection. We’ll see when/if he he moves away from Rhodes or if he sticks with him.

Your turn.
