      Deshaun Watson - in a not so
      spectacular QB class, this is one
      shining star that could become an
      NFL starter.
       With the NFL Draft now within a month away from reality, it's time to begin to buckle-down on the credence of this mock draft projection.
Before now, it's always difficult to gauge potential team needs in the formula of "whom might the team pick."  Now, as April is about to roll-up
on the calendar, it's certainly more clear as to what intentions each NFL franchise might have.  Team draft selections have been established and
the various team positional units  have been fortified or left barren at this point.  Free agents have signed or left, and team visitors and scouting
tidbits have become apparent.
       Compared to most years, it's rather difficult to put together the top picks this year.  Myles Garrett is an obvious #1 selection, something we
don't always know, but things are far more muddled in the rest of the top five - comparatively speaking to the average year.  This round one
mock projection features 18 defensive players and 14 offensive players.  As always, the goal and aim of this site's mock draft projection is to get
as many players matched to the team (not necessarily the slot) that they will ultimately end up on.  I don't tend to project trades, but do keep
them in consideration while slotting a name to a team.
