Like picks 21-25, the players going 26-30 in my NFL Mock Draft can be the difference in how well their team does in the playoffs next year. It can also slide the team out of the playoffs in favor of a team that barely misses the playoffs this year. And as I said in my last article, the stakes are high up there and the difference between player A and player B doesn’t look like much.

So the personnel departments of each team are hard at work as we speak to make sure they get that player that puts them over the top.

What was his production like?

Does the way he got his production in college translate to the NFL?

Does he fit in our locker room?

Will he do whatever it takes?
