If you have been following along with my Pool Outlook posts over the last couple of weeks, I've been trying to work out my mock draft as I go, so I thought with a good number of picks done already, I would keep a running tab on the players taken, as I see it to this point.

After the top three, which may not even be a guarantee, it is a little bit more of a pick and choose and my thought process is more of what I think the team needs and how they should be addressing it at their respective pick.

This list will continue to get updated, as the Pool Outlook posts continue and with the playoff teams that have traded their picks away, the recipient teams will get their updates, even though they might not get any mention in their Pool Outlook posts.  That's just the way it goes, I guess.

It looks like it will be a pretty good draft, especially with a lot of intrigue after the number three pick, so stay tuned.  We'll get all the teams and picks up there before too long.
