Mayock: This year’s draft a bit different

NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock sees this year’s draft class as one of a different color than last year and of recent years.

Appearing on a national conference call Mayock indicated the big difference is the presence of 73 junior eligibles that have joined the class.

“This draft is a little bit different than previous drafts because of all the juniors that have declared this year,” said Mayock. “We have better depth than we’ve had in the last 10 years. I’m really impressed with the depth. The top 10 picks, I don’t see the difference makers like we’ve seen the last couple of years, the quarterbacks, Von Miller, Ndamokong Suh. We could see before the draft back then who were the difference makers a month or two before.”

Mayock went on to say that this is a year where you’d almost prefer to have a pick between 20 and 30 in the first round than a pick in the top 10 when it comes to maximizing your value.
