Paul is also slowly playing himself out of the NBA draft. Will probably get drafted into the D-league though. Bummer. Really nice guy.

It's weird seeing Illinois put up 75 and lose. Only other loss they've put up 70 in was Missouri.

Such a great gif.

It's quite remarkable how much turnover there's been at the top this year, should make for another exciting tourney.

Yeah, definitely. There's a lot of good teams, but no great team like UK last year. This thing is wide open.

Keith Law's farm system rankings








5. Chicago Cubs


The Cubs' rebuilding process isn't much further along than the Twins' or the Astros' in terms of time, but they spent extravagantly in the international market before the new CBA's restrictions went into effect last summer, landing the Cuban toolshed Jorge Soler (and the Cuban flop Gerardo Concepcion, but we're not going to talk about him), then later using their international pool money on the Dominican pitcher with an electric arm currently known as Juan Carlos Paniagua, who has gone through more names than the thief known as Parker. The Cubs also scored big in last year's draft, addressing the system's lack of starting pitching candidates while also bulking up its depth in outfield prospects.

Unless you're saying it's wide open like 2010. Then I'd agree with you.

Right now, I could see a ton of teams being in the mix. Just off the top of my head, these teams come to mind:

IU
UM
Duke (With Kelly)
Butler
Louisville
Cuse
Florida
Arizona
Gonzaga
MSU
Kansas
Oregon

USA Today Mock

1. Kansas City Chiefs: Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M

In
a draft with no elite talent, Joeckel is the safest pick. He offers the
Chiefs an immediate upgrade at the all-important left tackle spot.

2. Jacksonville Jaguars: Bjoern Werner, DE, Florida State

Jacksonville has been searching for a good pass rusher for almost a decade. Werner fills the need and brings a hometown flavor.

3. Oakland Raiders: Damontre Moore, DE, Texas A&M

The Raiders ranked 31st in sacks last season (1.6 a game). Moore offers a quick fix.

4. Philadelphia Eagles: Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah

Some
will argue Lotulelei is the draft's top player. He offers a remedy for
the Eagles' porous run defense and the ability to line up in a 3-4 or
4-3.

5. Detroit Lions: Barkevious Mingo, DE, LSU

Mingo
would be the perfect replacement for Cliff Avril, whose return to the
Lions is in doubt. Mingo's upside is incredible, with all-pro ability.

6. Cleveland Browns: Jarvis Jones, OLB, Georgia

Jones
is a game-impacting linebacker with a complete skill set. His
experience in Georgia's 3-4 defense puts him ahead of the curve.

7. Arizona Cardinals: Eric Fisher, OT, Central Michigan

The
Cardinals gave up a league-high 58 sacks last season and desperately
need an offensive tackle. Fisher is swiftly rising up draft boards.

8. Buffalo Bills: Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia

Buffalo
signed Ryan Fitzpatrick to a $62 million contract in 2011, then found
out he was not the answer. The franchise starts again with Smith.

9. New York Jets: Chance Warmack, G, Alabama

Ideally,
the Jets would like a pass-rushing linebacker. But Warmack fills a
desperate need at guard. He will immediately move to the top of the
depth chart in New York.

10. Tennessee Titans: Ezekiel Ansah, DE, BYU

Tennessee's
defensive ends generated little in the way of a pass rush last season.
Ansah is being compared to Jason Pierre-Paul and has the wow factor
teams like.

11. San Diego Chargers: DeMarcus Milliner, CB, Alabama

Starting
cornerback Quentin Jammer is 33, and his game has deteriorated.
Milliner brings much-needed youth and talent to the position.

12. Miami Dolphins: Keenan Allen, WR, California

Second-year
quarterback Ryan Tannehill needs a consistent playmaking threat at
receiver. Allen fills the void, and his ability to stretch the field
complements the sure-handed possession receivers on Miami's roster.

13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Sheldon Richardson, DT, Missouri

The
Bucs need a defensive tackle who can start immediately, and Richardson
is a Day 1 starter. His athleticism and playmaking skills are a perfect
fit for Greg Schiano's defense.

14. Carolina Panthers: Johnathan Hankins, DT, Ohio State

Carolina
would prefer a receiver, but Hankins further stiffens the middle of the
defense and will make second-year linebacker Luke Kuechly even more
effective.

5. New Orleans Saints: Dion Jordan, DE-OLB, Oregon

Jordan's
versatility to line up at defensive end or drop into coverage as a
linebacker fills a pair of needs for the Saints. Pending surgery on his
shoulder could send up red flags.

16. St. Louis Rams: Jonathan Cooper, G, North Carolina

Plain
and simple, the Rams' offensive line needs help. Cooper improves the
run blocking and most important upgrades the protection of quarterback
Sam Bradford.

17. Pittsburgh Steelers: Alexander Ogletree, ILB, Georgia

Ogletree's
ability to play sideline to sideline on all three downs and rush the
passer makes him the best replacement for veteran Larry Foote.

18. Dallas Cowboys: Jonathan Jenkins, DT, Georgia

Jenkins
is a dominant interior run stuffer with all-pro potential if he applies
himself. He's also a terrific fit for the Cowboys' new 4-3 alignment.

19. New York Giants: Zach Ertz, TE, Stanford

Many
thought the Giants would select tight end Coby Fleener in the first
round last year. In Ertz, they get a more complete player at the
position and a replacement if free agent Martellus Bennett signs
elsewhere.

20. Chicago Bears: Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma

The
Bears' pass protection ranked in the bottom half of the league last
season. Johnson, a former tight end, impressed scouts throughout 2012
and is the type of blocker quarterback Jay Cutler desperately needs.

21. Cincinnati Bengals: Alex Okafor, DE, Texas

Starter
Michael Johnson and his 11 sacks are gearing up for free agency; he
might not be back. Okafor would be a fine replacement on the field and
in the locker room.

22. St. Louis Rams (from Washington Redskins): Kenny Vaccaro, S, Texas

Despite
shoring up the corners in the secondary last year, center field remains
a problem for the Rams. Vaccaro is a rangy safety.

23. Minnesota Vikings: Jesse Williams, DT, Alabama

The
Vikings will consider a receiver with this pick, but Williams offers
good ability for an interior defensive line thin on talent.

24. Indianapolis Colts: Datone Jones, DE, UCLA

Injury and age destabilized the Colts defensive line. Jones fits Chuck Pagano's defense as a 3-4 end.

25. Seattle Seahawks: Terrance Williams, WR, Baylor

The
Seahawks want another pair of reliable hands for quarterback Russell
Wilson. They also want a wideout who can stretch the field. Williams
satisfies both.

26. Green Bay Packers: Eddie Lacy, RB, Alabama

The
Packers' running game ranked in the bottom third of the league last
season. Green Bay needs a back capable of pounding opponents on the
interior, which is Lacy's specialty.

27. Houston Texans: Kevin Minter, ILB, LSU

Minter
was one of the few bright spots for an LSU defense that underachieved
last season. He'll bring intensity and stability to Houston's run
defense.

28. Denver Broncos: Shariff Floyd, DT, Florida

Denver
has three veteran defensive tackles set to hit the free agent market,
including a pair of starters. Floyd is a three-down defender whose stock
is on the rise.

29. New England Patriots: Matt Elam, S, Florida

Safety
has been a sore spot for the Patriots, and deep center field continues
to be an issue. Elam's range and pass-coverage skills are the perfect
remedy.

30. Atlanta Falcons: Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame

The
Falcons will try to coax Tony Gonzalez back for another season, yet the
franchise must address the tight end position at some point.

31. San Francisco 49ers: Desmond Trufant, CB, Washington

Niners
general manager Trent Baalke always looks for value in the draft,
dating to his days as a scout. Trufant offers not only value but also a
future starter at a critical position.

32. Baltimore Ravens: Manti Te'o, ILB, Notre Dame

Ray
Lewis' retirement makes inside linebacker a need position. Enter Te'o, a
terrific run defender who plays with Ravens-like intensity.

Green Bay needs a safety in the worst way.

I think they nab a running back in the next round and take a flyer on Chris Ivory or Steven Jackson.

That's a pretty bad one. I haven't seen Lacey higher than mid-2nd round anywhere.

Until the combine, these mocks are pretty pointless. They'll come even more in to focus after free agency.

Pretty much. Sometimes, they have guys I've never even heard of. Like Datone Jones from UCLA.

All I can say is that it's got to really suck to be a fan of an awful team during a meh draft year....
