2016 NFL Mock Draft: The first ever live creation of a mock draft on air

You've seen the end result of a mock draft but have you ever wondered how that person that made it came to those conclusions?

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

3000 NFL Mock Draft is a podcast about the NFL draft, college football, and the NFL, but really it's about mock drafts and how people come to the conclusions that they do when creating such a thing. So it seemed like a good idea to actually just get on mic and do it: Create a first round mock of the 2016 NFL Draft with Rob Staton based on current draft order, now that we are about halfway through the season.

And it was actually really fun and informative. Sort of like an episode of Bill Nye but in audio form and about sports and less applicable to playing in front of a room of 30 middle school students.

I'll post the whole first round mock below, but I suggest listening to the episode to find out how we came to those conclusions, including how we decided on the Seahawks pick at 18 (currently). Also, we'd love it if you subscribed on iTunes and listened to the show every week!
