52 hours to go

Parcells blew up my last mock, but I'm feeling confident about this one. The key pick here is at 3. If Atlanta takes Ryan, the next 12 picks are just about locked in if their are no trades. The Jared Allen deal has a huge effect on 3 picks: the Chiefs are more likely to take a defensive lineman at five, the Raiders are now more likely to take a defensive lineman to keep them off the Chiefs at four, and the 17th pick going to the Chiefs can cause a ripple effect into the 20s. That being said, I still have the Chiefs taking Albert at five, because LT is a huge need and there is too much smoke around that pick for their interest not to be real.
