After running through the Pool Outlooks, this is what I've come up with as my first run through of the mock entry draft.  I will admit that this mock draft was started back when the draft lottery had happened and there hadn't been any combine as of yet, so thoughts about some players may have changed between then and now, but I will stand by how I got to most of these picks.

There is plenty of buzz around trades, especially with Vegas, possibly shifting a 1st round pick or two around, so if that happens, I may go back and revamp my mock draft, as we draw closer to the actual draft itself, which will start on Friday, the 23rd.  That leaves me a little over a week to tinker, but I do like what I've done here so far.
