With the NFL Draft just a few short days away all the time for talk is coming to an end. All the blowhards like me that have been breaking down different draft prospects will get a chance to see how smart we are over the next couple of seasons. Football fans have been flooded with a ton of different names, so I thought it would be a good idea to pick out five guys people will want to track during the draft. In my opinion these are the names fantasy owners should be watching closely once the elite prospects are taken off the board.

Receiver is arguably the deepest position in this year’s draft. There could be as many as five receivers selected in Round 1 but there are also a number of mid-round prospects that have a chance to make an immediate impact in the NFL. If you’re favorite team needs help at receiver, there are plenty of quality options to choose from in this draft class.

The NFL Draft is now less than two weeks away. This will be my 31st straight draft. Back when I was a little kid and it was on Tuesday mornings I used to stay home from school so I could see who the Cowboys selected. Ah, the gold old days when I would actually be happy on draft day. After re-watching a bunch of college football games and going through all of my prospect videos, I’ve finalized my rankings. Let’s start off with quarterback, which will produce the first two picks in the draft.

Now that I’ve watched countless hours of college football and gone through all the prospect videos my contact in the NFL sent me, I’m ready to release my first mock draft of the season. Let me first say that mock drafts are the most useless thing on the planet. They mean absolutely nothing but people like them and I’m nothing if not a man of the people. The first two picks are mortal locks. After that it’s a crapshoot.

1. Indianapolis Colts – Andrew Luck, QB Stanford
This is a no-brainer. The Colts have been settled on Luck for months now and he’s done nothing to scare them off.

2. Washington Redskins – Robert Griffin, QB Baylor
I’m guessing the Redskins didn’t trade up to take an OT. Griffin is headed to Washington where he’ll do his best to make Mike Shanahan more than just an average coach.
