The scouting combine has passed and the NFL Draft season moves toward Free Agency. Many mock drafts at this time will reflect players who started to create some separation at the combine. Once free agency starts, team needs will start to take shape as teams lose, let go, and acquire players.
So that brings us to the post combine NFL Mock Draft update for Geeking Football. The next update will move to three rounds. For now, there is a taste of some changes below…
This will probably be one of the most universal changes we see in mock updates after the combine. He was already close to Amari Cooper, but his performance moves him into the top WR spot.
1.7 Chicago Bears
Shane Ray, OLB, Missouri
The Bears move to a 3-4 defense is foreseeable and adding ray as a pass rusher is worthy of the pick here. They could easily take a Danny Shelton for NT as we previously projected.
Interesting thought here. The Cowboys scored the most points they have in a season (467) since 1983 (479). They have not had a rushing contribution like they did in 2014 since the Emmitt Smith days. If Murray leaves, we could see the Cowboys trying to put a top talent in the position instead of a band-aid. They have proved that they can’t just put anyone in the spot.
