Happy Tuesday Blogger Bannon Backers,

Ladies and Gents…we are 48 hours away from the start of the NFL SZN. I am very excite! (Borat voice) We are back with Mock Draft 2.0 because Mock Draft 1.0 was so bad. Do I think there will be a 3.0 that hits the timeline Thursday night around 6 pm…probably, gotta assume Deebo gets traded and that could spice up the Top 10. Reminder, projecting a full round 1 mock is a waste of time! That is why we stick to the Top 10. Some readers are saying, “Excuse Mr. BloggerBannon, you are only doing the Top 10 because the Jets have 2 picks in it” …solid argument. Thank you Seahawks! Alright, that’s enough words, let’s get into the fun stuff.

1. Jacksonville Jaguars: Travon Walker 

Who?!?! 2 weeks ago I had never heard of this kid. Okay that’s a lie but Vegas has Walker at -200 to be the first pick and the buildings in Vegas are big for a reason. Do I agree with this selection, no, but the Kahn family are good people so I will be nice. 

2. Detroit Lions: Aidan Hutchinson

HOMECOMING! Detroit selects the DE from Michigan and everyone is happy. Dan Campbell gets a guy who likes to eat kneecaps to anchor the defensive line and Aidan’s family doesn’t have to move. Win Win!

3. Houston Texans: Ikem Ekwonu

Yes, the Texans gave gas mask god Laremy Tunsil 22mm a year but their current RT, Charlie Heck, had a PFF grade of 56 in 2021. Gotta find out if Davis Mills is the real deal and the only to do that is giving the guy a fair shot. 

4. NY Jets: Kayvon Thibodeaux

Kayvon = me happy. The best DE in the class. Ohhhh, he might not love football, who cares. Dude is a physical specimen. If Thibs is the real deal…him and Lawson will be scary. Top 10 D Line in the NFL, I think so!

5. NY Giants: Evan Neal

Giants take the Bama tackle to protect Danny Dimes. He is too good to pass up and that O-Line needs as much help as possible. With 2 picks in the top 7 they take the best player available and will be happy with their choice.

6. Carolina Panthers: Charles Cross

Panthers take the next best Tackle. Cross could be good, but I didn’t watch a single Mississippi State game this year, so I have no idea. They could go QB here but this QB class STINKS! They grab their franchise QB next year with the first overall pick.

7. NY Giants: Sauce Gardner

Sauce became the best corner in the draft after the season ended which doesn’t make much sense to me but who cares because Sauce is dope. I still think Stingley will be a better pro but the Mara’s love hype. Also, they are trading Bradberry so need a CB1.

8. Atlanta Falcons: Garret Wilson   

It’s tough losing your number 1 WR to 5 game parlays but it happened. Even though the Falcons love Bama WRs, I see them looking past Jameson Williams because of the torn ACL. Wilson is the most pro ready wideout and Mariota gets a true #1. 

9. Seattle Seahawks: Derek Stingley Jr. 

The Seahawks are in the same boat as the Panthers. (What an odd sentence to type). Hawks need a Tackle but the top 4 are gone so they settle for Stingley Jr. and try to recreate the Legion of Boom. They could go QB here but see them waiting until next year before pulling the trigger. 

10. NY Jets/ San Francisco 49ers: Jameson Williams

Option 1: Jets take Jameson Williams and once healthy, they have a top 10 WR room in the NFL. This gives Zach Wilson a fast outside threat and moves Moore into the slot…where he will eat. 

Option 2: Trade #10 to the 9ers for Deebo. The 49ers could lean Treylon Burks but take Williams to fill Deebo’s spot. As a Jets fan I am super happy with both but lean Williams because he’ll be cheaper in the long run. 

There is it folks. Mock Draft 2.0 (Top 10). Maybe I’ll see you Thursday with 3.0 but I am feeling pretty confident about this one. Look out for some draft prop on the timeline…
