A Smurfy Mock 2.0

Well as promised I have come through with my version 2.0 mock draft. This one however is going to be quite different than many you have seen up to this point. For one, I just made the picks, I did not go into explaining. For two this is fairly extensive, four complete rounds. With that in mind I will give a general explanation here as to my methodology.

First of all I do not feel that the defensive line talent is as deep as some claim, I also believe there is going to be a major run on quarterbacks in the top half of the first round. I went through this based more on a positional need philosophy rather than a best player available, since most teams in the league do in fact weigh positional need into the equation, some just do it more than others. I also wanted to just have fun and do something different, provide a different yet still plausible scenario for you all to read, enjoy, pick apart, whatever.

So without further ado....
