As I said in my first mock draft I have the right to change my mind so I figured I would do an alternative to my first. I will put the name of the player I had in the first mock next to the round then put this mock's pick below. 1st round, Joe Mixon RB Oklahoma Tj Watt OLB Wisconsin, this seems to be the fan favorite this year and he very well could be a Packer if he is there at 29 but the way it's looking teams are starting to notice his potential and should go in…
