It appears that as we are approach Thursday, more and more mock drafts are starting to finalize. Because of that, we start seeing how draft picks are locking into place, according to analysts.
With that said, the SB Nation NFL flagship did a really cool thing where they took 70-plus of the major mock drafts from experts and compiled data for each team based on who they feel those teams would select.
And with the seventh pick, the majority of those major mock drafts are trending towards Florida State safety Derwin James by Tampa Bay heading into Thursday’s draft.
This selection for Tampa Bay can be a toss up. Some fans can’t decide whether the team should select James or Alabama safety Minkah Fitzpatrick. Others are hoping for Notre Dame guard Quenton Nelson, which would probably be the smart pick there if he falls to the seventh spot.
James is undoubtedly an athletic freak and can play anywhere on the field. If Nelson is off the boards and James, Fitzpatrick, and Denzel Ward are my choices, I’m going with the Florida State product.
