Mel Kiper NFL Mock Draft 4.0

Mel Kiper has dropped his latest NFL mock draft on us and has a new #1 overall pick. He has the Panthers taking Auburn QB Cam Newton, who is also the top pick on Todd McShay’s latest mock draft.

The remainder of his top five are Marcel Dareus to the Broncos, Von Miller to the Bills, A.J. Green to the Bengals & Blaine Gabbert to the Cardinals.

As for the Eagles, his pick remains unchanged from his previous four mock drafts. Gabe Carimi, OT, Wisconsin

I have offensive tackle as the top need for a team that has to make sure they don’t take the athleticism of their starting quarterback for granted. In Carimi they get a guy who loves to run block and will sustain those blocks. But he can also take on great pass-rushers, and has shown enough that it figures he could fill in at either tackle position early, potentially starting on the right side with the goal to become a starting left tackle.

As for the other NFC East teams, he’s got the Cowboys taking USC OT Tyron Smith, Redskins taking DE J.J.Watt and the Giants grabbing Florida OG/C Mike Pouncey.

Kiper also mocked out the second and third rounds. In the second he’s got the Eagles filling another need with Utah corner Brandon Burton. In the third he’s got them selecting Ohio St. linebacker Ross Homan.
