Mock Monitor 7.0
Mock Monitor 7.0

Florida State defensive end Cornellius Carradine goes by the nickname “Tank.” Seems fitting.
So much has happened in the past week that should have influenced this week’s Mock Monitor, but much like the actual NFL Draft, you can never tell what’s going to happen until it does.
The mocks were stubborn for the most part this week as Stanford tight end Zach Ertz remained the majority pick for the second week in a row despite Tony Gonzalez announcing that he’d return for another season, furthering the thought that the Falcons will still be looking for his replacement, even at No. 30 overall.
It’s important to point out, however, that there are several mock drafts that did not provide an update after this week of movement. ESPN’s Todd McShay and NFL.com’s Gil Brandt and Charles Davis all remain with Ertz because they didn’t update their mocks. When they do provide an update, will their position choice change? After all, CBSSports.com’s Rob Rang changed his pick to Notre Dame tight end Tyler Eifert after Gonzalez’s announcement.
Those who did make changes to their mocks this week overwhelming moved to the defensive side of the ball, with defensive end and cornerback being the two positions of choice.
Florida State defensive ends Bjoern Werner and Cornellius Carradine, along with Texas A&M’s Damontre Moore and Texas’s Alex Okafor all received nods to the Falcons.
New to the Mock Monitor this week is Mississippi State cornerback Jonathan Banks and North Carolina State cornerback David Amerson.
We’ll see next week how much things get shaken up if more updates come through.
