After blockbuster trades, Todd McShay shifts B1G players in Mock Draft 5.0
A lot has changed since ESPN NFL draft insider Todd McShay put together his last mock draft.
Like, a ton.
Both the No. 1 and No. 2 overall picks were dealt in blockbuster trades, which will likely mean that two quarterbacks will go off the board in the first two picks. That’s the way McShay, and many others, see it.
The same six former B1G players who appeared in McShay’s Mock Draft 4.0 were again among his top 31 selections. But they were all in different spots in his Mock Draft 5.0.
For starters, McShay went from having one B1G player in his top 10 to four. He had Darron Lee rising from No. 17 all the way to No. 10 while Ezekiel Elliott went from No. 13 to No. 4 overall.
The only B1G players who moved back in McShay’s mock were Joey Bosa and Taylor Decker, but they only dropped one and two spots, respectively.
Here were the spots McShay had B1G players going off the board in the first round:
|OVERALL PICK, NFL TEAM||POSITION, PLAYER||SCHOOL|
|4. Dallas Cowboys||RB, Ezekiel Elliott||Ohio State|
|5. Jacksonville Jaguars||DE, Joey Bosa||Ohio State|
|9. Tampa Bay Buccaneers||OT, Jack Conklin||Michigan State|
|10. New York Giants||LB, Darron Lee||Ohio State|
|18. Indianapolis Colts||OT, Taylor Decker||Ohio State|
|20. New York Jets||CB, Eli Apple||Ohio State|
