Eight days. That’s how long remains until the NFL Draft is finally upon us, an event that was pushed back two weeks this year, but feels like it’s two months late.

Who will each team take? Based on the latest information, the editors at cover32 have put together version 3.0 of their first-round mock draft. Here’s how they see things unfolding on May 8.
